"Not just a great a meal- our favorite Hawaiian experience"
April 2023
Between the luau and gardens, plan to spend the day amazed and experience Hawaii at its best. We have been to several luaus and Toa Luau was above and beyond anything we have ever experienced. The food was actually delicious!! The show was amazing as expected. By the time we left the luau we definitely felt like family. The activities prior made Toa Luau stand out even more. You can participate in coconut opening/shaving, peel bananas, and more. This was all at the Luau. Even more than that was the luau was inside the Gardens and your ticket includes admission. We spent hours in the garden and even swam in a waterfall pool. Toa Luau isn’t a meal—it is the very best experience of our trip

Tip: Lunch luau was awesome because we spent the day exploring gardens. This is family owned and not a corporate type experience. All seats are great. Food was delicious
