Set on 12 lovely acres along the ocean on the sunny leeward coast of Oahu near Ko Olina is the Paradise Cove Luau Grounds. Of all the luaus in Hawaii, none offers the extensive cultural experience that awaits you at Paradise Cove. As you arrive, you receive a Mai Tai greeting and are free to stroll the grounds. Hawaiian games of skill and chance, hula lessons, canoe rides, a shower of flowers; there is so much to see and do here! The imu amphitheater gives everyone a great view of the luau pig being dug up from its underground oven.
The luau is a mix of the best local favorites, traditional Hawaiian dishes, and continental cuisine. Paradise Cove luau menu includes a salad bar, macaroni salad, broccoli surimi salad, poi, lomi lomi salmon, stir fried vegetables, island style baked chicken, kalua pig, beer battered island fish, taro rolls & butter, cold steamed sweet potato, steamed white rice, fresh pineapple chunks, various desserts, hot coffee and hot tea.
Paradise Cove offers a variety of luau packages (see seating chart in slideshow), and their Paradise Cove Extravaganza is one of the most highly regarded hula shows / Polynesian review in all of Hawaii.
Infants 3 and under are free if they do not occupy a seat at the luau (or on the bus if you are including transportation). If you would like a seat for a younger child, book them as a paying child rather than a free infant.
A Mai Tai and shell lei greeting upon arrival, arts and crafts demonstrations, Hawaiian games of skill and chance, Imu ceremony, luau dinner buffet, Paradise Cove Extravaganza, and more! Basic seating is off to the side of the main stage. Included with this package is a "Cove Card" with a value of $12 per adult and $8 per youth/child which may be used to purchase beverages and Paradise Cove Marketplace merchandise.

Kevin's Activity Tips:
Paradise Cove is really an amazing place. When I first arrived at their luau grounds, I was skeptical that such a large operation would be any good. I was pleasantly surprised. Their spacious grounds offers so much to do, and they have a truly picturesque location along the ocean. Do yourself a favor ... get out of Waikiki for the evening and enjoy an evening on the other side of Oahu at Paradise Cove. The best advice I can give ... go for either their Orchid Luau or their Deluxe Luau package. Not only will your seats be better; your drinks will also be covered throughout the evening! Your allotment for beverages on your included "Cove Card" will go fast when you are walking around, especially during that typically warm hour before the sun sets. If you do the basic luau package you'll find that you've used up all your drink allotment before dinner starts and you'll need to purchase additional cocktails or soft drinks.
One word about their Deluxe seating package ... it includes either "up front and center" seating or seating in the "Royal Box" which is elevated behind the center section tables. We personally think the Royal Box isn't a good option. You are a LOT further back from the main stage. When you order the Royal Package with us, we are going to reserve you for these front and center seats. If they aren't available and the only Royal seats are in this box in the back, we will contact you and talk about other options.
