The luau was the crown jewel of our Christmas in Hawaii. The experience, hospitality, food, and entertainment were all perfect. Even though we were a large group, we were treated very well. The food was delicious; every part of it was so tasteful. The entertainment was top notch. It is apparent the dancers rehearse in order to give us the best experience possible. Lastly, the venue was breathtaking. The views were 360 degrees of amazing beauty.

Spectacular show with the setting sun in the background, yummy free cocktails and a great buffet with Hawaiin cuisine staples. We loved the representation of the various island cultures and the Samoan fire display is a can’t miss.

This was an incredible experience. Our tour guide, Shawn, was informative of the island's history and landscape and could not have been more accommodating. I highly recommend this trip
