"Beautiful performance!"
November 2018
Enter the yard with a shell lei and a smile that makes your evening. Watch the sunset and listen to the band. Eat local cuisine watching the moon rise among the palms. And then the dancers come out telling their histories and stories in dance. This was my experience at Voyagers of the Pacific luau......the stage backs onto an unbelievably beautiful ocean view. The food was excellent. Well organized. Worth a visit!

"Fun time luau"
June 2017
The food is ok. The cost is for the show. A dinner and a live show on the shores for Hawaii watching the sunset is going to cost you money. Nothing in Hawaii is cheap That being said the music was good, extra rum in the Mai tais is good, and it's a good and informative show. Get in line early. There is an option to buy a up front seat. It may be worth it for you. We didn't get it and we had a great view. If you make it as far as kona go to the show. How many will you ever get to see.

"Not worth the money"
April 2015
We went to this luau as our big outing for the day. We were all looking forward to it. It turned out to be so disorganized that we couldn't even enjoy ourselves. The seating was terrible so you could hardly see the stage. The food wasn't what it said on the website when we booked. There was an arts and crafts table where we could make bracelets. It was so disorganized that grown women kept cutting in front of my daughter while she waited patiently. I had to keep saying something to the girl running it. And she still skipped my child! Then the guy who was drawing on people's arms kept saying he was running out of time and couldn't finish. But he was still allowing a line to form and for people to wait instead of announcing it to everyone. The food wasn't good. The only good part was the fire dancer. This isn't worth the cash. Use your money at SeaQuest for a snorkel tour. That was worth every penny!!!

Show is amazing. Loved the fire dancer and the dancers traditional costumes. Variety of foods to chose from, deserts were really good. Not worth upgrading to VIP as all seats were very close.

"We ate in the pouring rain! Not worth the price tag, especially as a hotel guest. You can just watch from the balcony."

We paid to go to the Luau, not worth it! You can see it from your balcony if you are a guest. They say it's from 5-8, but the show ended right at 7 pm. The food was not that great, and it rained the whole entire time. We were provided rain ponchos and the show went on while we ate with our food getting soaking wet without any type of covering. Their policy is no refunds for the luau, even with weather. They charge you $20 for the picture they take of you at the luau. Also the Mai Tai's were very watered down. The lei they give you is the $1.50 sea shell lei's they sell at the ABC stores nearby.

"Family once in a life time luau in Hawaii "

Well we plan, we save, we reserved, and we choose events. The royal luau was a researched, planned, consciences by family and reality come true event. To start with there is no parking. They will validate your parking, but the validated slip did not work for us. Like most Hawaiian events there is always the register when you get their sign in...and do you want to upgrade for more money per person. You can pose for a photo and pay extra money for it on the way out,too. We enjoyed the open air, until the sprinkles turned into drops, we got wet; then the staff started handing out ponchos. The food was okay (kind of bland, not very colorful, beef tough, pork fabulous, cake just okay), watching them dig up the pig was amazing, the wrist flowers so cool, the wood artist fabulous, the dancers super and the band great. But one got the feeling that it was very rushed. Our m.c. seemed to be pushing the entertainers and probably cutting things out of their normal evening program. Their fire dancer was excellent. The event was to run until 9 p.m. and we were in our car by 7 p.m. if you are in the entertainment world you could easily guess the profit made from the show producers. Hummm. Maybe step it up a bit for the price, and put the profit back into revitalizing the once in a lifetime experience.

Awesome show, great location, good food. The only negative was the seating. Tables so close together and very wobbly so drinks were being spilt by everybody. 10yr old and 13yr old had a blast. Website says, kid activities, lei making and tattoos before the show but there was nothing. Search web for discounts got ours for under $100.

The dancers are great - really loved all of the different dances that they did. The food was also very good. The mai-tai drinks are unlimited (until 7pm) but they are very weak (even with the floater of rum that is offered). But delicious none the less! Great view of the ocean as the background to the show.
