I just bought my VIP tickets for the Luau on Jan 14th. Getting real now! Am so excited!
If you have a car, go to the one on the north shore with the nature park. You get admission to the beautiful botanical garden that day and can swim by the waterfall. It's awesome!I have read every thread on here about the different luaus in Oahu. I've been to every website and have read over menus, looked at pictures, and yet I still cannot decide. I want to book today so that the points go on my credit card statement for this month lol.
We are a family of 4 (2 A, 2 K ages 13 and 9.5) and I am leaning towards either Chief's Luau, Fia Fia, or Paradise Cove. We are staying at Aulani for 9 nights and the Hilton Hawaiian Village for 3. I planned to do the luau while we were at Aulani simply because of distance/driving/walking.
Chief's had good reviews on here for the entertainment factor, but I am kinda hung up on the location and setting (old waterslides in the pictures seems odd to me). Paradise Cove is next door to Aulani and I love the beach setting, but the reviews are a little mixed (herded like cattle was a phrase I recall from one review). Fia Fia has good reviews but there is absolutely nothing on the Marriott website about it so I have to call today.
Any suggestions on how to decide? Anyone have any recent reviews of either? Thanks in advance!
