Chiefs Luau on Oahu

Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park

Set at Sea Life Park’s stunningly scenic Makapu'u Meadows, backed by tall sea cliffs and overlooking the ocean, this is a luau unlike any other in Hawaii. It is highly interactive and very funny!

What makes this luau different is Chief Sielu, a world champion fire-knife dancer and Polynesian comedian. Chief Sielu is widely regarded as the best and funniest Polynesian entertainer in the South Pacific. He has appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, BBC, MTV and Oprah Winfrey. Chief Sielu is known around the world as the “Coconut Man” for his two decades at the Polynesian Cultural Center’s Samoan Village, where he was the featured fire-knife dancer in their evening show.

The Chief’s Official Formal Title is “Malietoa Tauasa Folo Sielu Avea,” which was given to him by the Head of State of Samoa. The honor of becoming a Chief is received from knowledge of the culture, working with the community and supporting the leaders. Now you can experience the Chief at this amazing luau.

Join Chief Sielu’s ohana (family) for an evening as you immerse yourself in the rich heritage of the Islands and take home memories of a lifetime. Sip a Mai Tai cocktail and sink your teeth into a lavish Hawaiian feast, a sumptuous blend of traditional luau foods blended with Hawaiian Regional Cuisine. And finally, enjoy a thrilling Polynesian show!
