Experience Nutridge Luau

Held at the historic Nutridge Estate inside of the Pu'u 'Ualaka'a Wayside Park, Experience Nutridge Luau offers a truly magical 5-star experience. This Oahu luau boasts a unique setting unlike any other – it is situated on Mount Tantalus, surrounded by a rainforest and tropical flora and features spectacular views of Honolulu, all the way from Waikiki to Pearl Harbor. Also, unlike many other Hawaiian luaus, Nutridge Luau is a small production – a small group, family-style authentic luau experience.

In the Hawaiian language, "Pu'u Ualaka'a'' (the name of the state park) literally means "rolling sweet potato hill.'' Under King Kamehameha I, sweet potato was grown here. Later in 1921, a man named Ernest Shelton Van Tassel was granted the lease by the Territory of Hawaii to begin planting Australian macadamia nut trees on the 22 acres of land within the Pu'u 'Ualaka'a Wayside Park creating Hawaii Macadamia Nut Ltd., the island's first macadamia nut plantation. At its height, the company had approx. 2,000 macadamia nut trees growing in the Nutridge grove.

Due to its scenic location, overlooking breathtaking sunsets and a large stretch of Oahu’s south shore, the Nutridge Estate has even entertained iconic guests in the past, including Clark Gable, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. Elvis spent some of his free time here during the filming of "Blue Hawaii."
