More than 200,000 guests each year can’t be wrong! Paradise Cove is Hawaii’s Best Luau!
No visit to Hawai’i is complete without enjoying the experience of a traditional luau and show – and no luau is more complete, more fun and held in a more beautiful setting than the Paradise Cove Luau and Hawaiian Revue at Ko Olina on Oahu’s leeward coast.
From the moment guests board their comfortable luxury motor coach at any of nine convenient locations in Waikiki (transportation is included with admission), the fun never ends. Expert island guides provide a variety of information and non-stop entertainment as familiar sights like Aloha Stadium and Pearl Harbor pass by.
Upon reaching Paradise Cove…
guests are greeted with a free Aloha Mai Tai and photographed with friendly dancers and entertainers from the evening’s Hawaiian Revue. Once inside the Paradise Cove Hawaiian Village, be prepared for two full hours of fun, activities or just relaxing and waiting for what promises to be one of the most spectacular sunsets you’ll ever witness.
Paradise Cove’s 12 beachfront acres are alive with experiences that will turn into treasured memories. Try your hand at traditional arts and crafts. Take part in the unique games of Hawai’i. Enjoy some of Hawaii’s finest entertainers and dancers as they perform a wide range of island favorites. Partake of cool tropical drinks at a nearby refreshment center or spend time shopping for that special something at the Cove Marketplace. And don’t miss the Shower of Flowers as fragrant blossoms drift down to the beach from the tops of tall palms.
A great photo opportunity is always available as guests take part in a traditional hukilau, pulling giant fishing nets from the sea to the rhythms of a conch shell and island chants.
After a prayer of blessing, follow the procession back to the luau area and prepare yourself for a feast! The luau buffet includes a variety of salads, steamed rice, pineapple chunks and traditional luau fare like poi, lomi lomi salmon, island fish with macadamia nut crème sauce, teriyaki chicken and kalua pig (yes, the same one you just watched come out of the imu!).
Now sit back and enjoy the award-winning Paradise Cove Hawaiian Revue under the direction of Paradise Cove Entertainment Director O’Brian Eselu, one of Hawaii’s most popular local entertainers. It’s a perfect show for a perfect evening: a little comedy, a little audience participation, the heart-pounding excitement of one Polynesia’s greatest fire knife dancers plus a lot of outstanding singing and dancing in an incomparable setting under the stars of a wonderful Hawaiian night.
As the evening winds to an end, it’s time to board your bus and return to the bustle of Waikiki. But don’t feel bad; you can come back anytime to the experience that is Paradise Cove, Hawaii’s Best Luau!
