Paradise Cove Luau
Luaus are one of the most popular must-see's for visitors while in Hawaii, and the Paradise Cove Luau offers a wonderful experience that is sure to please guests of any age. Located at Ko Olina Resort on Oahu's gorgeous Leeward side, the luau takes place right along the beach and provides guests with breathtaking sunset views.
AT A GLANCE:
The luau begins at 5pm, and guests are welcomed to Paradise Cove with leis and a complimentary mai tai. The first hour is spent with games, live music, an impressive palm-tree climbing and flower shower, hukilau, (the historic Hawaiian method of fishing with a net), the Imu (roasted kalua pork) ceremony, hula dancing, and a pareo demonstration. Guests can try their hand at throwing a Hawaiian spear, get Polynesian tattoos, learn how to hula, and splash around on the beach while waiting for the evening's main events to begin (a foot washing station is located just off the beach.)
Dinner and the show begin at 7, and continue until approximately 9pm. Guests have three package options to choose from; the Hawaiian Luau (basic package), the Orchid Luau, which features an orchid lei and middle seating, and the Deluxe Luau, which includes a fresh orchid or kukui nut lei, and deluxe seating.
