There is an updated option of ordering tickets online ahead of time, we were able to reserve front row seats. They also have a great vegetarian option now... More

The Hale Koa is a military hotel but anyone can get tickets to the luau which is preceded by several demonstrations. Parking is in a parking garage across the street so get your ticket validated. The luau is on the beach side of the hotel so plan on a good hike to the excellent show and decent food.

This was my second Luau, but my family's first. I was glade I took them to this one for there first. The grounds are much nicer than Jermaine's Luau, but that is also reflected in the price.

From the moment you arrive you get the whole experience. You are greeted by the islanders with a shell lei and then a tropical island drink; which by the way was pretty good. I learned how to make a lei out of fresh flowers and how to dance using the Maori poi ball. They are balls on a string that... More

Being our first time in Hawaii we were really looking forward to attending a luau but were very disappointed. While we expected the food to be different we did not expect it to be the poor quality that it was. We also witnessed the dishes being brought from the hotel to the area where the luau was not in a... More

This was our first Luah and had no idea what to expect. Watching a guy climb a coconut tree was fantastic!!! We were completely captivated by their performance of what makes up the Polynesian countries. It was so informative, my 6 year old left knowing the 5 countries and how they were each different. The food was delicious! You will... More

This is our second luau at the Hale Koa. Well worth the money. I have been told that it is the best luau on Waikiki and believe it to be true. The military tribute by Glenn Medeiros was very touching and a must see for anyone who served.
