When you imagine Hawaii, what instantly comes to mind? The beach. The sun. Palm trees. A lei. Hula dancers.
All of those are the right answer, and no matter what you envision when you imagine Hawaii, eventually a luau will form in your daydream, and you’ll be front and center at the best party on the island, watching in awe as the lovely hula dancers sway, the music fills the air, and the dazzling fire knife dancers captivate with thrilling performance. A luau is designed to be the most fun that you can have, and selecting your authentic Hawaiian luau is sure to be a big part of your vacation planning.
Each island offers plenty of options, and each option comes with its own benefit. Whether it be the location, the scenery, the buffet choices, or the time spent at the luau, there is much to consider. There is one thing that you can be certain of, however, and that is the fact that you are in for one of the best times you can imagine.
Oahu offers quite a few options for luaus, and each is a very good choice. There are great features for each, and choosing is always a tough choice. We know plenty of groups that end up a multiple luaus because the decision is just so hard, and there is really nothing wrong with that! The luau that many choose just for the overall experience is at the Polynesian Cultural Center, where guests spend an entire day at the center, enjoying the island villages of Polynesia, and all of the fun activities at the park. The luau begins later in the day, and the buffet is a big hit, plus the night show is known as one of the top things to do on the island. Additional options include Germaine’s Luau and Chief’s Luau, each a fantastic evening in their own right.
Maui may have the largest number of luaus to choose from, and as on Oahu. the choices are tough. The Royal Lahaina Luau is one of the most popular luaus, and tales place at the famous Royal Lahaina Resort. Another fantastic option is the Drums of the Pacific Luau, taking place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, taking you on a fascinating journey through the Polynesian Islands. Each luau is different, and special in its own right, so be sure to consider all of your options.
Ultimately, the luau that you choose is going to come down to what is best for you.
And really, there is no going wrong with whichever you choose, as they are all so much fun. All ages enjoy the show, and everyone will have their favorite part. From the singing and live music, the flawless execution of Hula, and the part that always stands out, the storytelling! You’re bound to have the best time on your trip and will love everything about an authentic Hawaiian Luau.
