Oahu’s Only Farm-to-Table Luau
What if we told you that there’s an awesome luau, close to Waikiki, that offers the only farm-to-table buffet dinner on Oahu and also includes free admission the the Waikiki Aquarium? Well, it’s true! The Diamond Head Luau offers you a taste of the islands’ bounty, with the freshest fruits, vegetables, fish and meat around.
Admission to the Waikiki Aquarium Is Included!
The Diamond Head Luau can occupy the whole afternoon and evening. With admission to the aquarium is included, it’s a great way to get up close with exotic sea life without getting sunburned or even wet! Coming face-to-face with these creatures gives you a new appreciation for the abundance of life that surrounds us in Hawaii. While you’re strolling through the aquarium and the lush park surrounding it, stunning views of Diamond Head on one side and the Honolulu skyline on the other take your breath away. After enjoying your time at the aquarium, it’s time to make your way to the beautiful Diamond Head Luau, where your hosts welcome you with a colorful lei, a cold cocktail, and warm smiles all around.
Time for a Party!
Start acquainting yourself with Hawaiian culture as you choose some of the activities offered. If you love music, ukulele and hula lessons are just the ticket. For the crafty folks, weaving and lei-making offer a fun challenge. You can even get a (temporary!) Polynesian-style tattoo!
As the sun sets over the sparkling waters of Waikiki, take a moment to appreciate nature’s awe-inspiring show. This is an ideal photo opportunity. By now you’ve probably worked up quite an appetite. Perfect timing, because it’s time for that delicious buffet! Choose from all the traditional and modern specialties our tropical islands have to share. Exotic fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, chicken and pork complement a selection of familiar staple foods.
After everyone’s happy and full, sit back and enjoy a stunning show of music, dance and storytelling from all around the Polynesian world. Our balmy tropical weather means you’ll be comfortable under the stars even after sunset.
Get Your Hike On!
If you really want to make a full day of it, you can choose a combo package including both the luau and a hike up Diamond Head Crater! This ancient volcano is probably the most photographed landmark on Oahu. Situated in walking distance from Waikiki, this moderate hike takes you from inside the crater up to the ridge, with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, the beautiful Honolulu skyline, and the dramatic mountains behind the valleys of the city. This combination of jade green, deep blue, and city skyline offers the perfect backdrop for more photos. Included in the hike package is an audio guide, which you can pick up at the visitors center at your convenience.
Combining a hike, a visit to the aquarium, and the luau with all its activities and entertainment is a sure way to keep visitors big and small entertained all day. On top of that, this day out will also leave you with a new appreciation of our beautiful island customs and traditions!
