Learn how to make a traditional Hawaiian lei or leave with a slightly more permanent memory, temporary Polynesian tattoos.

Hawaiian Games:
In ancient Hawaii, games were created as a form of entertainment, but also to develop the skills of the warriors. At Paradise Cove you can take part in some of the more popular traditional Hawaiian games. To test your skills try 'O'o ihe (Spear throwing), 'Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks) and Moa pahe'e (Dart sliding).

Shower of Flowers:

Hukilau on the Beach:
Paradise Cove keeps the traditions of old Hawaii alive with a nightly Hukilau on the beach. You are invited to participate in the ceremonial pulling of the fish nets to the rhythms of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant

Imu Ceremony:

  • This was our 2nd time doing this tour. This time around we took our 2 small children, 4 and 1yrs. Although we still thoroughly enjoyed it the price has gone up allot since 3yrs ago and for the money you are charged I don’t think it was worth it. But for 1st timers you will love it. Food was amazing.

  • A must do for any traveler to Hawaii. Food was great, location amazing. They have this timed perfectly that when the Hula dancers begin, the sun is setting behind them creating a fabulous picture and telling a story while creating a great memory. The big bus ride to the location was fun as well. Nice job to all! Thank you!

  • We decided to drive ourselves there because we had a rental car. We did not realize how bad the traffic would be so we were late arriving and were not able to partake in all the activities. Otherwise it was a really good experience and our family enjoyed it!

  • What a great evening we had here. A beautiful backdrop. Would definitely return. Wonderful hospitality from Paradise Cove. We chose the standard luau, with 12 cove card, only draw back is you get to the buffet last however there is plenty of food once you get there. Best pulled pork on the island. Entertainment was fabulous. Transportation to and from was perfect arrived on time and returned promptly to Waikiki.


  • The luau was very organized and ran efficiently. The description was accurate. My only criticism was the complimentary drink upon arrival was very very diluted.

  • Entertainment a bit predictable. Some activites to watch and join in. Plenty of food but too many people all wanting to queue up at the same time. Drinks on the small side. Thought it went on a bit too long as once the sun had set we had to sit out the stage act. Probably a bit overpriced for what was on offer. Personally, wouldn't go again as not worth the money.

  • It was amazing! The guide, cousin sexy, on the transport was so funny and entertaining he was fantastic. Paradise Cove was fantastic and the food and entertainment was second to none. I would highly recommend this Luau.

  • We had the most amazing time here!
    Everyone was really friendly, the entertainment and food were fab.

  • Nice performance and dinner in a very relaxing atmosphere
