What a great night. Great entertainment, hula dancing, fire spinning, great food and activities. Chief was so funny and had us laughing all night. Welcoming drinks and seeing the food come out of the ground and Hawaiian history. Highly recommended 😊

I've been to several luau's and this one has a very homey feel to it. The performers are excellent, with all of the usual hula and fire dancing. However, it is done not with professional dancers but with locals who are superb at their craft....More
