Below is a list of the best Oahu Hawaii Luaus so you can make the choice that’s best for your travel. Many of these Oahu Hawaii Luaus can include transfers from your resort or you can drive to them as well.
The following are some of the best Oahu Hawaii Luaus that visitors like to experience while on their Hawaiian Vacation.
Mauka Warriors Luau
Mauka Warriors Luau is the newest Luau on Oahu, as it just opening May 2023. The luau is located on a sacred battle site and they talk about that during the luau. They also honor King Kamehameha with a story. The dances are focused around stories of war. They have lots of cultural activities to do when you arrive like seeing the kitchen with an actual Imu that’s smoking. They have Kava to try, weaving, poi balls, tattooing and more! They also take your photos all night long and text them to you for free! None of the luaus do this. Their luau overlooks all of Honolulu. You can see the ocean, Diamond head and night we could see the stars. If you want a beautiful venue at a historical site with an authentic feel, don't miss this luau!
