Paradise Cove Luau with Transfers

Enjoy an unforgettable evening of fun activities, delicious island cuisine and spectacular entertainment at Hawaii's best Luau!

The Waikiki Luau at Paradise Cove begins with a tropical Mai Tai greeting while live Hawaiian music sets the festive mood of the evening. Take a stroll through the village and learn more about the arts and crafts of the islands, or even test your skills at the Hawaiian Games.

After the delightful Shower of Flowers, participate in the Hukilau on the beach and learn the net fishing techniques of old Hawaii. Following the pageantry of the Royal Court Procession and imu (earth oven) ceremony, your evening continues with a sumptuous feast.

Make sure you bring along your appetite to fully enjoy the extensive menu which blends the best traditional Hawaiian dishes, local favourites and continental cuisine.

Post sustenance and with a spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, award-winning performers will entertain and amaze with an unforgettable display of songs and dances from across Polynesia at the Paradise Cove Extravaganza.

Activities at Paradise Cove Include:

  • The arts and crafts of old Hawaii are as beautiful as they are intricate and complex. During your visit to Paradise Cove, be sure to visit the Hawaiian Village and take part in arts and crafts demonstrations. Learn how to make a traditional Hawaiian lei or leave with a slightly more permanent memory, temporary Polynesian tattoos.
  • Hawaiian Games: In ancient Hawaii, games were created as a form of entertainment, but also to develop the skills of the warriors. At Paradise Cove you can take part in some of the more popular traditional Hawaiian games. To test your skills try 'O'o ihe (Spear throwing), 'Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks) and Moa pahe'e (Dart sliding).
  • Shower of Flowers: Imagine standing on a beautiful white sand beach gently showered by fragrant island flowers. Witness skilled tree-climbers ascend the highest of palm trees and spread the aloha of the islands with a floral cascade, making this dream-like scene into an experience you will remember forever.
  • Hukilau on the Beach: Paradise Cove keeps the traditions of old Hawaii alive with a nightly Hukilau on the beach. You are invited to participate in the ceremonial pulling of the fishnets to the rhythms of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant
  • Imu Ceremony: At Hawaii's only Imu Amphitheater, take a seat to view the elaborate process of traditional cooking in the Hawaiian underground oven. In a ceremony following the practices and rituals of ancient times, you will see exactly how your delicious Hawaiian meal is prepared.
  • Paradise Cove Extravaganza: With the most spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, the Paradise Cove Main Stage explodes with the beauty and excitement of the traditional songs and dances of Hawaii and Polynesia. Award-winning dancers will entertain and amaze you with a performance that is as unforgettable as the perfect setting of Paradise Cove itself.
