Paradise Cove Luau Article
Paradise Cove offers a variety of exciting luau packages that's best for you, each designed to cater to your specific needs. It is one of the largest and most respected of Hawai'i luaus. Twelve oceanfront acres come alive with island games and crafts, a traditional Hawaiian feast, and a spectacular Oahu luau show.
Held in the exclusive Ko Olina Resort area, Paradise Cove Luau is the most interactive luau on Oahu. The bus ride can get a little rowdy at times, so for a quieter experience, it is recommended for you to drive out on your own - the drive out to Ko Olina takes about one hour from Waikiki. Take the Ko Olina exit to Aliinui Drive. There is only one way off the exit and continue past the guard shack.
You will be greeted with a Mai Tai and shell lei upon arrival, and then be guided towards the activity area. Make your very own flower lei to wear at the luau or get a temporary Polynesian tattoo! Learn to weave your own headband or wristband from fronds and flowers, take a hula lesson or even take a paddle in a canoe.
Take part in the Hukilau, pulling the fishing net from the sea to the rhythms of a conch shell and island chants. Hawaii's only hukilau ceremony where guests, dressed as villagers, help to pull in the fishing net. Witness the imu fire pit ceremony and watch a skilled tree climber scale a tall palm tree and scatter tropical flowers in the "Shower of Flowers". A great photo opportunity is always available as guests take part in these traditional activities.
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.
