Luau of Oahu There are many excellent luau to choose from, including the Alii Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center on the North Shore, the Paradise Cove Luau at Ko Olina in Leeward Oahu and the Royal Hawaiian Luau (Ahaaina) at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel .
In my opinion, I think going to a luau is definitely worth planning into your Hawaii vacation. For around $90, you get to sample Polynesian food and watch a colorful Polynesian dance show. Luaus feature traditional Polynesian and Hawaiian food that you might not find on a resort menu.
Though the cost of a luau can vary by island and venue, plan on a minimum of $90 to $100 per adult. Most luau companies consider an adult guest to be anyone 13 years and older. For children between the ages of 6 to 12 years, plan to spend a minimum of $60 per child.
OK, OK, mosquitoes do exist in Hawaii , but compared with many other tropical destinations, mosquitoes are amazingly absent here. While you may get bites while hiking near a river or when the trade winds die down, Hawaii’s strong breezes make beach-side, sunset enjoyment largely hassle-free.

Are there any beachfront luaus on Oahu ? Yes, Germaine’s Luau and Paradise Cove Luau are great luaus on the beach.
Q: How long does a luau last ? A: This depends on the luau you choose but most start between 4PM and 5pm and end between 7:30PM and 9PM.
At many luaus your table will be assigned a server and that server will let you known when you can go to the buffet, will clear away old plates, and so on. If you don’t feel like the server really did much (or anything) then don’t feel obligated to tip .
Re: Is Old Lahaina Luau worth $530?? Yes, if everyone in the party would enjoy the experience.
Hawaiian print shirts for men and floral dresses for women are the easiest and most comfortable choices. When paired with khaki shorts or slacks, the aloha shirt goes from casual to dressy. For a conservative look, women can wear a traditional muʻumuʻu or long dress with floral print or a sarong.
You will find that full retail price works out cheaper in Hawaii than it would back home in Australia . You will not be short of places to find some great purchases either, there are plenty of opportunities for high end shopping in Hawaii .
Islanders themselves wear ” Hawaiian ” (aka ” aloha “) shirts, board shorts, loose-fitting trousers and comfortable shoes, sandals or flip-flops. Women can wear similar attire and have the additional option of choosing a pretty sundress on a sunny day.
