As the sunsets over the pacific and the tiki fire torches are lit, the show begins to take you on a majestic journey through Polynesia. This is Waikiki's only Oceanfront Luau and Hawaii's only Farm-To-Table Luau.
Enjoy the Most Exclusive and Authentic Lu'au on Oahu. Located conveniently at the Waikiki Aquarium, just walking distance from the hotels, this limited 250 person seating is the smallest Luau on the island. The personable and knowledagable performers take pride in interacting with their guests during the luau celebration.
In ancient Hawaiʻi, it was customary to celebrate special occasions with ʻOhana (family) and friends. We at Diamond Head Lūʻau continue this tradition. All of our food is locally grown and prepared right here in Hawaiʻi.
Unlike the traditional buffet or table service, each part of the meal will be presented at unique stations. Starting with delicious pupus (appetizers) available when you arrive and as you are participating in our cultural activities.
Prepared to become enchanted by the history and culture that helped form what the Hawaiian Islands are today. Enjoy multiple interactive activities for some fun with the staff before the big show begins. All the while learning about the Hawaiian Culture.
The food and menu are second to none and it is coupled with an award-winning show that will take our guests on an adventure through Polynesia culminating with a world-champion fire knife spectacular!
