Experience the Best Luau Oahu Has to Offer!
The Chief’s Luau, a truly traditional Hawaiian feast, you’ll experience a tropical party like no other, including thrilling Polynesian performances and an ‘ono (delicious) Hawaiian-style buffet.
This breathtaking tropical party, produced by Chief Sielu Avea, a world champion fire-knife dancer, is consistently rated the most popular luau in the Hawaiian Islands. The Chief and his ‘ohana (family) invite you and your ‘ohana to join this evening full of island flavors, exotic entertainment, and fun.
In the earliest days of the Hawaiian monarchy, the old religious laws dictated that men and women weren’t allowed to eat together; and some meals were only available to the ali’i (royalty). In 1819, King Kamehameha II broke the taboo, and luaus have been feasts that everyone can enjoy ever since.
One of the centerpieces of any luau is the cooking a whole pig in an ‘imu (underground oven) for the occasion. Meats and vegetables are wrapped in banana or ti leaves and cooked for several hours on hot lava stones in the ground. Besides the Kalua pig, typical luau foods include poi (pounded taro roots) and lomi-lomi (“massaged”) salmon.
As you savor the amazing flavors of the unlimited buffet, Chief Sielu’s ‘ohana entertains you with Pacific Island dances and music. One of the highlights is the mesmerizing fire-knife dance, performed by the young men of the family.
The Chiefs Luau is located in Kapolei, adjacent to Wet ‘n Wild Hawaii, and takes place every day except Tuesday and Saturday, with the fun starting at 5 PM. Hawaii’s stunning scenery provides the backdrop for your unforgettable experience. If you prefer, you can drive your own vehicle and check in at the location from 4:30 onwards. For a more hassle-free experience, add round-trip transportation from multiple convenient Waikiki stops for only $18 per person (infants 0-4 years ride for free). Leave the driving to one of the Chief’s friendly staff while you sit back and enjoy some beautiful views that you won’t see anywhere else on Oahu.
