What to Look For in a Hawaiian Luau on Oahu
Hawaii’s luaus are famous for the non-stop fun, great atmosphere, thrilling performances, and of course the delicious buffet that precedes the entertainment. Every luau in Hawaii puts its own spin on the night, and creates an evening that will surely be a highlight from your trip to the islands.
But what exactly should you look for when booking a luau? We know exactly what makes a luau great, and what will help to make your decision a little easier.
First, you will want to make sure the setting is perfect. The best luaus are set against an amazing backdrop so take the surroundings and views into consideration. A luau like Germaine’s Luau takes place with amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, while Chief’s Luau is set at Wet 'n' Wild Hawaii, a popular Oahu water park featuring a 50-foot backlit cascading waterfall.
Next, the evening’s entertainment is vital. Any of the luaus offered on HawaiiDiscount.com feature a great show, with live music and dancing, but some take it to the next level. The Polynesian Cultural Center combines music and dancing with a mesmerizing show and a story that captivates, and shares the traditions of Hawaiian storytelling.
Of course, the buffet plays a huge role in booking a luau, and the authentic cuisine that is offered can definitely make or break the night. Luaus feature an all you can eat buffet, complete with great options like Kalua Pork, Lomi Lomi Salmon, fresh local veggies, fresh caught island fish, and locally grown veggies. Go back for seconds if you wish, but just leave room for a delicious dessert course.
Many luaus also feature great activities before the luau actually begins, allowing guests to take part in fun games and demonstrations soon after arriving. Learn to hula, make a lei, or just sit back and watch the fun, there are great things to do before the night’s festivities begin. Combine the great outdoor activities with beautiful surroundings an your luau is already off to a great start.
