No trip to Hawaii is complete without experiencing a traditional island luau. There are many luaus to choose from but only the Paradise Cove Luau gives you more than just a great dinner. An evening at Paradise Cove gives you a glimpse into the Hawaiian culture and a night of first class entertainment that is unmatched anywhere on the island. On the picturesque coastline of Waianae, about an hour's drive out of Waikiki, Paradise Cove offers you a view of the amazing sunset as you stroll through a traditional Hawaiian village.
Upon arrival you are warmly greeted with a shell lei and a Mai Tai cocktail. Paradise Cove sprawls over twelve acres of the most beautiful oceanfront scenery on Oahu so feel free to gaze at the ocean and enjoy the tropical breezes while you relax and unwind. The entertainment is just getting started as you are invited to take a journey back in time to the historical days of Hawaiian village life and participate in traditional games and crafts. Learn the Hawaiian skill of Hukilau, by helping to pull the fishing net in from the ocean. Marvel at a demonstration of coconut tree climbing and enjoy the profusion of plumeria blossoms as they shower down upon you. Take a seat in the amphitheater for the dramatic Imu ceremony as the Royal Court in traditional costume enters and oversees the unearthing of the roasted kalua pig.
Your evening is well underway as you sit down to enjoy a buffet meal including many Hawaiian specialties and continental favorites such as taro rolls, poi, lomilomi salmon, kalua pig, green salad, pasta salad, macaroni salad, potato salad, fresh fish, rice, fried chicken, fresh pineapple, coconut pudding, and coconut banana cake. Your dinner is enjoyed to the beat and pageantry of Polynesian dancing. See everything from the swaying beauty of the Hawaiian Hula to the fast paced, chest-slapping Samoan fire knife dance. As your evening comes to a close your time at Paradise Cove will always remain the perfect memory of the true Aloha Spirit of the islands. You have an evening to remember as you become a part of the Ohana (family) of Paradise Cove.
