Big Kahuna Luau

This luau is currently unavailable for booking on our site. For another great Oahu luau we highly recommend, check out Aloha Kau Luau.

Situated on Mt. Tantalus, high above Honolulu's glittering lights, the Big Kahuna Luau is unlike any other luau on the island of Oahu. The mountaintop location features stunning panoramic views, from Pearl Harbor all the way to Waikiki and Diamond Head. The serene natural setting offers a glimpse into Hawaii a hundred years ago.

Held at the historic Honolulu Ridge Estate, the Big Kahuna Luau includes everything that makes a Hawaiian luau special – enjoy chef-prepared appetizers and a signature Mai Tai cocktail while strolling through fragrant gardens of tropical flowers, eucalyptus, ginger and exotic fruit trees overlooking the city. Quench your thirst on a beverage from the tiki bar that offers a selection of beer, wine and tropical cocktails to be enjoyed throughout the evening. Witness or take part in a variety of cultural presentations, including ukulele and hula lessons, lei making and coconut weaving and husking.

As the sun sets, sit down to a scrumptious luau buffet dinner featuring top-rated cuisine of the Islands (see menu below). Dinner is followed by an award-winning Polynesian revue featuring music and dances from Hawaii and greater Polynesia, including the spectacular Samoan fire-knife dance.
