This was my second time at Chief's Luau and I got say... i love the new location. The new venue is so beautiful. Chief Sielu is the best luau host in Hawaii, he is funny, entertaining and for sure he is what makes this luau so special. The dancers and the musicians are really good and the fire-knife dance is breath taking. The food is delicious and the buffet has a lot of variety. It was a lovely evening and I recommend this luau to everyone, specially families and couples.

This was my second time at Chief's Luau and I got say... i love the new location. The new venue is so beautiful. Chief Sielu ...is the best luau host in Hawaii, he is funny, entertaining and for sure he is what makes this luau so special. The dancers and the musicians are really good and the fire-knife dance is breath taking. The food is delicious and the buffet has a lot of variety. It was a lovely evening and I recommend this luau to everyone, specially families and couples. more

First off... I will RECOMMEND this luau over any other luau on Oahu. This didn’t even feel like an activity or a tour I paid for,... it felt like I was invited to a festive Hawaiian family gathering. I have been to many "traditional" luaus, and usually leave during the show because it gets so boring, everyone does the same routine..over and over again. Not at this luau. I cannot explain how good of a time we had. The show was great and the Chief grabbed your attention the minute you walked in, he was so funny! Chief Sielu had my friend and I laughing so hard we had to put our drinks and camera down because we wanted to enjoy every minute of it. One of the main highlights was the fire knife dancing, it started off with 1 dancer, then 2, 3, 4, 5...it just kept on going!! I think at one time the stage nearly caught on fire but they just kept on flipping their fire knives, throwing it in the air..it was soooo exciting!!! This luau felt like a family gathering, everyone shared more

Ms. Rosie

I chose to go to the Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park because it was close to Waikiki but not IN Waikiki. And I had been to Sea Life ...Park and the ocean views there are absolutely gorgeous. The main reason I chose this one was I had heard so much about Chief Sielu. Everyone says he’s the best in the South Pacific and “everyone” were correct. What a luau! In my humble opinion, the Chief’s Luau is the best. The Chief Sielu is even better than his reputation. He and his huge cast of male and female dancers first entertained us with crafts, how to weave, make fire, and dance hula. Then the Chief narrated the imu ceremony where they pulled the pig from the underground imu oven. Informative and funny. Dinner was great. Then came the show. Beyond entertaining, exceptionally funny, and more fire knife dancers than I expected. There were about 7 or 8 of them doing really wild stuff. One of the best parts of this luau was its proximity to where I was staying in Waikiki. It took less than 30 m more

Myk Powell

Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park was by far the best luau I've ever been to! I've gone to other luaus on the island bu...t this one hands down beats all the others. The venue alone has spectacular views of the mountains and the ocean directly in front of you. After sunset you can even see Makapu'u light house lit up in the distance. Chief Sielu was a FANTASTIC host. Right when you arrived you felt so welcomed by the Chief and the other staff. Not only were they welcoming and made you feel comfortable. He had my friends and I laughing the entire time, his humor was hysterical! Not to mention the entire luau was super interactive and informative. Chief Sielu is SO passionate about his culture and passing his knowledge on to others, that the entire luau was both extremely entertaining but also educational, which was great. All the performances, dances, and traditions that were taught to us were amazing. The fire dancing was spectacular and far beyond my expectations! The food was also delici more

Jessica

Booked this activity with a few friends, as we wanted to do something fun in the evening, and what a great choice this was! Being ...close to Waikiki is the first perk, but the entertainment and scenery makes it even better. We were running late, so missed some of the crafts before the luau, but as soon as got there they were starting the Imu ceremony, which was unlike anything I have ever seen! Between Chief Seilu, who is the definition of entertainment, to the dancing, music, and wonderful food, this was definitely a night none of us will ever forget. Thanks Chief for keeping us laughing the whole time! more

Mr. Anonymous

This was our first Luau and we are confident in saying that it is quite possibly the best Luau you could attend. It was very auth...entic and Chief Seilu put on a great show from the dancing to music to his corky comedy. The activities before the Luau and the show itself are a perfect experience for anyone visiting Oahu. more

Blaze Daniels

1 - A very informative and interesting event 2 - A fantastic location for the event, with mountains and the sea in the back-dro...p 3 - Talented dancers! 4 - A hilarious chief who makes the entire crowd get involved and excited 5 - Decent food for a buffet, some unique Hawaiian dishes. Nothing too fancy. It's not about the food, much more about the experience overall. It was our first time in Hawaii and our first and only luau. We are happy we went and experienced it on the 2nd night of our vacation. It is worth it to have the luau experience and great fun! more

Leigh

Great show. Started out slow at first but the small audience made it a really personal experience

Remar

My family and I had a wonderful time. The entire night we were laughing and enjoying the show. The view is beautiful and the staff... was great. I would definitely recommend this to people looking for a Luau. more

Shannon

By far the best Luau in Oahu. 'Chief' is on to a winner with his Luau. He entertains you from the start to the end of ...the evening with his brilliant comedy skills, his drumming, singing and, of course, his fire dance which is sensational. There is a lot of audience participation, the food is excellent and it all adds up to the most magical evening. 'Chief' has an excellent team with him and I would highly recommend this Luau to anyone. more

Gerry

This was an excellent show and we were so glad we attended. We actually chose to drive to Sea Park, however due to the distance a...nd evening hours, we decided to contact Hawaii Activities to add the transportation 6 hours prior to departure. Hawaii Activities handled everything, and gave us simple instructions to hop aboard the tour bus which was a 1/2 block from where we stayed. As for "Chiefs Luau", this was so much fun, the entertainment included so many from the crowd, and the "Chief" can definately entertain and bring so much laughter. Plan on the early activities and particpate. They want to share there culture which is even more fun. With the evening show, take a light jacket as it can get breezy once the sunsets. Camera & Video - A MUST more

K Born

I attended the Chief's luau with my husband, siblings/spouses, and my elderly parents. A great time was had by all....even go...t my parents (temporary) tattooed at the event! We enjoyed the pre-show activities and the food was delicious. Chief and his group of entertainers put on an excellent show. This was my first luau, but my siblings had been to others on previous visits and said Chief's luau was their favorite. more

Karen

Great show and very entertaining. Music and dances were fun, entertainers were very skilled. Everyone was pleasant and friendly.... Food was only fair but I would go again anytime. The Chief was excellent! more

Leslie Schiefelbein

My wife, 11 month old daughter, and I got the chance to attend the Chief’s Luau at Sea Life Park, under the Paradise Package. I us...ually don’t expect much from the food and drinks at these sorts of events, but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, especially considering that it is a buffet, and the drinks were not watered down. In regards to the show, it was absolutely fantastic. The cast performed dances from the various Polynesian Islands and the entire time, the Chief is telling jokes (the jokes contain a bit of innuendo) and making sure everyone is having a good time. There is a reason Chief Sielu performs all over the island, practically every day: not only is he a very skilled performer, but he is absolutely hilarious. I will definitely be coming again. Please note that the cast does pull members of the audience for different parts of the show, however, it is not the run-of-the-mill “let’s all dance at the end” type thing, they are actually part of the festivities. more

Kendall

Perfect evening with cultural games and insights into the past of the Polynesian way of life. Food could have been better in more... varieties. more

Daniel+Kenza

This show will spoil you...other luaus just won't measure up! Do yourself a favor and get the Royal seating close to the sta...ge, especially if you will be attending with kids. You don't want them to miss a thing! We all loved it! more

Kelly-Az

My friend and I decided to check this out as we were looking for something to do for the night. I have been to many Luau's be...fore so I wasn't expecting anything amazing, but I turned out to be very wrong. the Chief was extremely funny throughout the whole night and he was also very interactive with the crowd. They had some fun activities before the Luau as well so that was fun. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great night with great people! Hands down the best Luau I have done. more

Alex

Lots of fun! Worth to go there and they are very friendly =)

Robin

Mixture of comedy, interactive games,music, storytelling,dance and music. Well worth the money. Picture is a bit pricey

Molly S

Great place, nice views. Funniest show we had in long long time!! Definetively a great choice.

lluis

Chief's Luau at Sea Life Park was definitely one of the highlights of my tour's while visiting Honolulu! The staff from... beginning to end was just great. Chief was an incredible man and host and the music, the dancing, the ladies just made the evening something to never forget! The setting at Sea Life Park was great. You look in one direction you see the ocean, and another direction you have the mountain back drop. I totally enjoyed this show and food from beginning to end. Chief is the man, what he and the staff did with the fire torches at the end of the show was a nice way to conclude the program. I know there are a lot nice luau's being offered in Honolulu, but this one right here is right up there with all the others. Great show and I had a wonderful time and evening! more

kevin gaines

great luau and very entertaining for all ages. would come back again

al_fred29

This is just a terrific event to attend. The chief and his extended family put on a terrific and funny show designed to entertain... all in attendance from couples to families. Many pre-show activities bring you inside the culture of the islands. The food is tasty and plenty of it to enjoy. The staff is very hospitable. Highly recommend. more

keelssenior

Chief was amazing, interacted with audience throughout the entire show. Show was HIGHLY entertaining. View from Luau was stunning,... Dancing was incredibly, singing was awesome. Only downside of entire show was that the food was just okay. Pork was good, pineapple cake was good, everything else was just okay. However I would highly recommend this show even if the food was awful, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! more

Ashley Taylor

Perfect for all ages! Chief's Luau was a awesome experience! We had an amazing time. The show is really entertaining, the fo...od is good and the staff is great. The location is perfect, beautiful views and great pictures. Everyone enjoyed the night and came back home with great memories. The Chief is the best part of the night, he put on a great show! I would recommend this show to everyone! more

mrsblock

What a fun night. From the running commentary on the way there to the Chief who is hilarious, what a great sense of humour! My d...aughter and I loved the way the luau incorporated songs and dance from all of the Polynesian islands. Really well done. The whole audience were involved throughout. The location was fabulous with the cliff face on the one side, the ocean and Rabbit Island on the other. Beautiful. more

Tanya and Hannah

We loved the chief's Luau. We have been to several and this was our second time to attend Chief's. The food is very go...od, my husband loves the poi..., the setting is great and the highlight is the Chief. He is just a wonderful entertainer! more

awesome. great activities. excellent food and overall memorable experience. Must see attraction.

charles

My girlfriend and I decided to attend this luau because we were told that it is more privatized, less populated, and more personal.... Indeed it was. Chiefs Luau has got be one of the most entertaining luau I have been to so far. Chief Sielu is a natural entertainer, with a real good sense of humor. The best part was Chief Sielu hand selected Ali'is to be used for demonstrations and entertainment. I believe the ali'is that he has chosen for the evening will never forget how to hold their wives, and throw them away. Overall this was the most funniest luau and great food. more

Would recommend Chief's Luau to anyone looking for some wonderful entertainment. It was very well run and great value for mon...ey. We had a terrific time. more

This was our first luau and we weren't disappointed. The food was so-so.... but the entertainment was first class. The chie...f was funny and the dancers were excellent more

Michael

The Cheifs luau was great! He's hilarious and his dancers were amazing to watch. The food was excellent and this is some thin...g we would do again and recommend to others!! more

Baileys

This was our first luau experience and it was fantastic. Transportation was included, the bus was on time and comfortable. When we... arrived, they took a photo that had a beautiful back drop (amazing scenery with the mountain and the ocean), photo was $10 and quite decent quality. There were fun pre-show activities and drinks available. The buffet was good, we paid for the middle of the road package which was worth it. The emcee was funny and personable and the show was very entertaining, the woman sitting next to us said that they had been to several luaus and this was by far the best fire show they'd seen. We were called onto stage because it was our honeymoon and they gave me a nice flower bouquet. Overall it was really a great experience! The whole staff worked hard to make the night a good one. Worth every penny! more

Gretchen

We love this luau!! The chef was super funny and he interacted with everyone at the luau. It was really personal and everyone was ...treated like family. We will def go back again. LOL Mahalo!! more

Japhia, nz

Great time! A must do if you visit Hawaii. Chief Cielu is hilarious and the dancers are amazing!

mgzmr

The Chief's Luau was fun and culture fulfilled. This was our second Luau and found this better than the Paradise Cove Luau a...s there was alot more teachings of the Polynesia culture. It was wonderful to hear about the different Polynesian beleifs, markings dancers and so much more. The Chief was a great host and his passion for his culture was lovely. A wonderful night. more

WallanVic

food was delicious, activities were entertaining and fun. The chief was hilarious. View was spectacular. Loved it!

Diana

We looked around at a lot of luaus but then we luckily got recommended for chiefs from our front desk lady. The food was amazing, ...the stuff before was a lot of fun. The show was incredible and the chief was a blast and very funny! Would defiantly recommend it to anyone looking for a great luau at a pretty good price! more

Spencer

Great time had. I only wish I would have upgraded seating. The standard seats were good, but surrounding people talked way too muc...h during the show. No fault of the luau by any means. Just a lack of common consideration by a handful of inconsiderate people. It could have happened anywhere and our family was able to move to avoid them. more

Zack

Very entertaining and nice experience. The food was a little disappointing, could have been better for the price.

Paul Viator

WE had the perfect night. The luau was everything we dream it would be. The Chief and his staff were wonderful! Totally worth it...!! more

Vincent & Linda - NY

Everyone loved the entertainment, food and ohana spirit here.

Paula

This is the only luau I have attended, but I can't imagine one being more enjoyable than this one. The pick-up service was ri...ght on time at the scheduled location and the drive over to Sea Life Park was quick considering the time of departure. The pre-dinner activities were fun and I picked up a piece of local artwork from a vendor that has become my favorite Hawaiian collectible. Dinner was very good and I'm still thinking of how yummy the coconut cake was! Chief was very entertaining and the other performers really put their native pride into the show. I would certainly recommend this luau experience! more

Jonathan W.

I am a native Hawaiian so I know my way around a luau. I was home visiting family and decided to take my wife and kids to Chief&#...039;s Luau at Sea Life Park Hawaii. I must say it was THE BEST luau I have ever been to. The food was excellent as I usually go to a luau for the food first and show second. The show was even better as Chief was the perfect showman with talent to burn. Speaking of burn, the fire dancers were simply AMAZING!! The entire show was dazzling as each Polynesian country were represented in true artistry. What an amazing show with some of the most delicious authentic Hawaiian food I have ever tasted. My only complaint, and its a small one, is that there was no haupia for dessert. more

Jaybird

Fantastic. We were made to feel Welcome to the Beautiful Island. The presentation was very authentic performed with passion. ...We really felt as if The Chief had gathered the best of the best to reflect the special times of island life. The venue is the perfect size and the interaction during the Meet & Greet time with games and conversation could only be described as welcomed interaction. Thank You for the pride of heritage and reality in which all was presented. Gorgeous view of the bay behind the Stage complimented the performance of these proud islanders. Thank You more

Billy&Janis&Bryton

This luau was the best ever for my first luau! so funny! everyone was friendly and the food was so fantastic!

Jacob Parent

I have attended many Luaus. This was the best by far. The pre entertainment, the show, the food and the staff were fabulous. W...ill definitely go again. A must - attend event. more

LindaTMK

In Honolulu for business, I had just one day free and wanted to make the best of it. Ending the day with the Chief's Luau was... the best decision I could have made. The show was the best part, really phenomenal entertainment and well worth the price. The ride out to the venue held spectacular views. Loved the whole experience. more

Sue

We had fun and lots of interaction with performers. Chief is super. Great Shows, food and location

Froggie2121

I have been to a number of Luau's on Oahu and this one is by far the best, mostly due to the brilliant 'Chief' who ...will keep you laughing throughout the evening. The food is excellent, the Hawaiian dancing is magical, the fire dance is spectacular, the whole evening is just total enjoyment from beginning to end. A show not to be missed. more

GeraldineRobinson

The show was funny and entertaining. The pre-games were fun. We even got a special dance since it was our honeymoon.. 2nd day. The... drinks could have been better..the bartender was a bit sloppy..just stick to the mai tais more

Adriana

My sister and I wanna say thank you all at big chief's luau. First luau ever and we had a blast. So glad I had chosen Big Ch...ief's. By far the best even though I'd had never been to another. The family oriented feeling you received you felt as if you had known them longer then you had. The food and entertainment was awesome. Not to mention the lesson in life to learn from . Teaching cultures and hawaii traditions was special. much love to the crew at Big chief's for making us feel so welcome. I would recommend to anyone I know. Even the bus tour guides was top stars. Aloha From Kansas Love and peace more

Debra Jones

We stayed in Oahu for our 10yr anniversary and this was attended the night of our very anniversary and all I can say is that the L...uau was amazing. When everyone celebrating and anniversary was asked to go on stage, given flowers, torches came out and they shut off the lights and had the couples dance under the stars, it made our night. We could not have asked for a better experience. We had a great time, the staff was amazing and the event was more awesome than I could have ever anticipated. Highly recommend. more

Daniel Haquet

We chose the Royal package, it was alot of fun sitting up close and getting to eat first! There were lots of activities to do befo...re dinner and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The alcoholic drinks are very "light", drink your free ones but save your money on the others. Buy some of the hand made jewelry instead!! more

Michelle

Saw the chief in 1985 at PCC. Loved his wit & charm then. So glad he has come so far. Still as great as ever. Was touched by t...he couples dancing & Make a Wish kids. Would recommend this smaller luau to everyone!! Thank you, Chief! more

Debs

We were told that going to Hawaii we had to go to a luau and we were not disappointed at all! The staff at chiefs luau were absolu...tely amazing, the food was fantastic but the overall experience is something we'll never forget. Thank you so much for a one of a kind and magical experience. I don't have enough good things to say, just do it!! more

Danielle

We have been to Hawaii a couple of times and have been to most if the luaus, but we think the Chiefs Luau has been the best one by... far. The food and drinks were very good and the location is very beautiful. The Chief was very funny and the whole show was very entertaining- great hula dancers and exeptional fire dancers. If you are staying on Oahu, do yourselves a favour and go see the Chiefs Luau - you won't be disappointed. more

Sandra, Sydney

So entertaining and full of interesting facts about the Polynesians and their surrounding cultures. The dancing and singing was ...beautiful and the food was amazing. The Chief was hilarious and really made our anniversary night extra special and gave me flowers! more

What a great experience. The buss was right on time. The driver was funny and knowledgeable. She talked about the island as we ...drove to the Sea Life center. The Laura was very well organized, the setting was amazing. Made you feel like you were miles from anywhere. The show and culture was perfect. The fire dancers were my favorite. Food! Wow, very well done. I highly recommend this Laura. We were not disappointed, I actually figured these thing are touristy and would not have much Culture in the program. Not this one. It's great I thought. more

We had a great experience at the Luau even though we had a lot of rain. Don't worry, they provided ponchos for everyone, whi...ch helped keep us warm too. My son loved the fire dancers and the food was good too. The chief who narrated the show was hilarious. more

A fun and unique experience. Big Cheif was a loveable entertaining character. The flame exerbition was incredible

We took our son to the show for his birthday and truly enjoyed every minute. I would recommend this show over any of the other Lua...us we have been too. The staff was very entertaining and actually seemed to enjoy themselves. We will go again if we get a chance to return to Oahu. more

Best luau that I have been to. My family, including my teenage son, we all agreed it was the best time of our 8 day vacation. The ...Chief was funny and you felt like you were part of his family, All the performers, including the Chief were terrific and talented and so friendly . Buffet was very good, the backdrop of the beautiful shore and ocean waves and the sunset was just too beautiful to describe. This is the luau to go to! more

We had an amazing time. It was more then what we expected. From the tour bus to the food and great entertainment we never stoppe...d smiling or laughing. I would recommend this to family and friends. My husband and I have been to a Luau before and this was the first time for our boys who are 13 & 11. They loved ever minute of it. more

I love Chief Sielu's wit, and his personality really comes out throughout the show. You can really tell he enjoys hosting the... luau and loves all his guests. They also have a lot of fire knife dancers (and world champions, at that) making their fire dances probably the most impressive ones out there. The food is good and there's a cash bar (you get a few free drink tickets based on which package you book). The only problem with this luau is that it's so far away from Waikiki and starts right after rush hour, so you might want to leave earlier (perhaps at 3pm) to beat the traffic. Alternatively you could just spend the day in Kapolei at wet n wild or Coral Crater. Parking is $5 at wet n wild. more

Everything was great except our bus got us there after all the activities were just about over. They really didn’t plan on traffic... and one of our stops had two handicap individuals that you could clearly see they weren’t prepared for. However once at the show very pleased. more

Christy S. Fuller

Christina

We really enjoyed this Luau. The entertainment and location were fantastic. The food was typical luau food, but what it lacked w...as made up for by the staff and the show. Would go again in a heartbeat. more

Mr. Anonymous

Great, very enjoyable!!!

Mr. Anonymous

The entertainment was wonderful. The food was a disappointment. in fact, the cheaper tickets that went through the buffet had it b...etter because they got as much as they wanted. Also, there wasn't much difference between our seats and theirs. I would do it again but would buy the cheaper tickets. more

Joe Ballard

Cheif's Luau show was good. Transportation was good. Food was alright. Disappointed in the fact that the 'coupon' f...or a free item we were supposed to get by booking with VELTRA was useless. In other words there was no free item. more

TMJ

Really enjoyed the show! Food was...ok. Would recommend based on the entertainment factor.

Kelley

We love the dancers and the stories! It was awesome!

The Mann Family

We had a great night! The food was good and the show was amazing! It was worth the beautiful drive and the money paid.

R family

We enjoyed the luau so much! We even got to see several whale breeches in the ocean behind the stage just before the show began. ...BONUS! Seeing the dancers and all that talent on stage was a great way to spend our evening. Dinner was good, show was fun and the setting and the way the involved everyone made it that much more fun. more

After swimming with the dolphins at Sea Life Park, we simply walked back through the park to the Luau (very convenient). We were g...reeted warmly with a shell necklace and photo op with the Chief, and then got to enjoy some games (spear tossing, a Polynesian version of musical chairs (except with sticks), braiding palm leaves to make head-bands, and hula dancing). There were also some tables with native-made goods for sale. Then the Chief led the unveiling ceremony of the roasted pig (he is very entertaining and funny), got our non-alcoholic drinks and food (which was very tasty, especially the pineapple cake!), and then enjoyed the show. The hula dancers were very talented, the fire dancers where great, and it was neat to see all the different dance styles of the islands that were represented. It was our 2nd wedding anniversary, so we got to go up on stage with some other couples and they honored us with some pretty flowers! The only down-side was that the location is a little small, but other than that, we had a great time! more

Wendy

we found this luau great ,the view was amazing, the show wonderful ,shuttle bus staff fantastic our only problem was the food , we... were the last table called up and some of the food had run out and also we didn't really like the food there just was not enough variety more

susan

This was a must do activity and was made excellent by our host "Cousin Bo" who was informative and entertaining. The ev...ent itself was fantastic, the show was very professional and the story of the Pacific islands well executed. The fire dance at the end was visually stunning and well worth it. Location was beautiful and the trip there was pretty too. The activities and food were probably not my ideal, but we would absolutely recommend going for the actual performance. We booked the royal experience. The chief is a real comedian and the evening was good fun all round. more

Roc & Nats

The performances were so-so. The seating was not good even though it was Royal seating. We didn't get our lei as promised. ... The food was not very good for the price. The one saving grace was that the staff was very nice. The young people who delivered the food was thoughtful and polite and returned to see if we wanted more food. The mixed drinks were no more than sugar water. I attended the Sea Life Luau about 5 years ago and it was excellent. more

Harold Walters

It has been a beautiful night, with a very normal dinner, nothing special for the price, with a beautiful show at the end. My disa...ppointment was because I paid for a Royal seating and the seating was not good at all. I had to stand up and sit on the ground to have a beatiful view and I also didn't get the lei. But all the staff people were really very kind and I enjoyed the traditional dances and the fire knives dance. more

Marzia (Roma-Italy)

The activities, dancing, and MC were very good. The food, however was just average. I have been to several luau before all of w...hich had a better food selection. more

The "Royal Package" is described as follows; "Enjoy front seating and receive a fresh Flower Lei, a mai tai greet...ing and three standard drinks, a souvenir t-shirt, pork tasting fresh from the imu, poi and lomi lomi salmon sampling, and be first (1st) in line for the dinner buffet. Before the show, go on a short guided tour of three exhibits at Sea Life Park. Get up close with turtles and dolphins before you get to meet the Chief!" We did receive our front row seating, mai tai greeting, 3 drinks each, t-shirt, & were first in line for the buffet. The Pork tasting, poi and lomi lomi salmon sampling was made available to all attendees at the Luau and there was no tour. We specifically bought this package for the tour and to be "up close with dolphins & sea turtles". We were held at the entrance until they called for "purple bands", aka royal package ticket holders. We were then led down the hill past a turtle pond and directly into the luau area while receiving our choice of flower or nut leis. Once inside we received a complimentary mai tai and took a quick picture with the chief and a young lady. Realizing during the show that our picture was with the chief and that is when we "met" him. I would not call this "meeting the chief". The inclusions in this package are very misrepresented and should be updated to avoid disappointment to other guests. The show itself is the BEST! The entertainers, the story, & the audience involvement is top notch. On our next trip we will be visiting this luau again but will rethink which package we purchase and will investigate options directly through Sea Life Park to avoid future disappointment and to ensure we will actually get what we are paying for. **The show was definitely worth 5 stars but the misrepresentation of the package made us give this package 2 stars. ** more
