  1. Lena S.

    One of the best Luaus on the West side, right by Black rock! Great food and an awesome show. Loved the Imu pit!

  2. Pat Swett

    The food and entertainment was awesome! As well as the history incorporated during the program. However, we were all very disappointed in the long, hot wait to be seated. We were told to be there at 4:30 pm, but they didn’t start seating until 5:15 pm. We had to stand in the full sun at it was 91 degrees. We all all retired, one in our party was a heart patient, one had hip and leg problems.

      I’m so sorry to hear that. For those reading this, perhaps consider arriving a bit later. We’ll talk with Hyatt in the morning to address this and make sure there’s sufficient seating in the shade.

      We haven’t found a whole lot of discounts for the Hyatt luau without strings attached. Timeshare presentations aren’t a ton of fun to have to attend (in my opinion.)

    We went to this amazing luau because my brother was getting married in Hawaii and we did the “rehearsal” dinner as a luau. The performances were amazing. Very beautiful. Excellent food and fabulous drinks. Highly recommended.

    That was worth an evening away from the jacuzzi. Not sure I’d do it more than once on a trip (though my wife wants to go every night), but it was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the music. They’re really talented. Never heard of Slack Key either, which some of the workers explained after the show. Not sure if they did it, but I want to learn more. Thanks for your expertise and time entertaining and feeding us.
