What does my admission ticket include?
Your admission includes a buffet dinner with beverages and the Polynesian Review show, featuring traditional dances of the islands of Samoa, Tahiti, New Zealand and Hawaii.
Do you offer tickets that don’t include dinner?
We do not, as the dinner is an important part of the luau experience.

Do you offer special menu options for vegetarians, gluten-free diets, and other special dietary needs?
Our caterers can prepare a "Vegetable stir-fry" entree, with at least 24 hour advanced notification. Please note that we do not offer any other menu substitutions or special meals. You are still able to select any other menu item in the buffet that you choose. A "Menu Ingredients" list can be emailed to you upon request to assist you in making your selections from the rest of our menu items in our buffet.
Do you do special announcements for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions?
We will try to accommodate if we are able to.
Can children come?
Yes! We do not charge for children 3 years and under. We ask that you have them sit on your lap on the bus if there are no extra seats. At the luau, they are able to sit in their own seat and are given a small plate for the dinner buffet. Unlimited soft drinks are also available. Please bring your own baby carrier or stroller as we do not have any high chairs at the luau.
Can I bring a stroller?
Yes. Please note, because the luau is on beach you will have to pull the stroller through the sand.
Is the luau wheelchair accessible?
Yes, although our luau is on the beach, we do have some areas where the sand is more compact. With the assistance of your party, you are able to access this area. We discourage bringing motorized scooters since several have been damaged in the past due to sand getting into the motor. Germaine’s Luau will not be held responsible for any damage.
What do I wear?
We suggest a light jacket and comfortable shoes with casual Aloha attire, i.e. a casual Aloha shirt and jeans or shorts.

2020 Germaine's Luau
Near the famous surf spot known as Barber’s Point, about 27 miles from Waikiki on the gorgeous western side of Oahu lies a beachfront property which has been home to one of the most sought-after luau celebrations on Oahu since 1976. The leeward side of Oahu is the sunniest area on the island; protected from rain and storms by the mountain ranges that rise along the center of Oahu.
The property was once the private estate of the Stephenson family, who loved to host luau celebrations for their friends and were known for their hospitality. Their spirit of Aloha lives on, and you can feel it when you visit Germaine’s Luau. The Stephenson family planted coconut trees for each family member, and to this day you can find coconut trees of different heights, representing the generations of family members who shared this beautiful land and their traditions.
This unique backyard-style luau
Lets you experience all the best values of Hawaiian Aloha: hospitality, sharing, playing, dancing, music, and of course food are at the center of this experience. Upon arrival, all guests receive a greeting the traditional way: with a lei. Explore the beautiful surroundings until you hear the sound of the conch shell. It tells the guests that the imu (the traditional underground oven) will soon be uncovered to reveal the main course of the evening, savory kalua pig.
Once the Royal Court of Polynesia have made their grand entrance, the feast can begin! Explore the wide selection of American and Polynesian food. Colorful fruits and vegetables, exotic and familiar flavors invite you to indulge all your senses.
After everyone has had their fill, it's time to gather to witness a story of adventure and love, as our talented cast from all around the Pacific take you on a journey through the Pacific Ocean through song and dance.
Don’t miss out on this experience of true Hawaiian hospitality and island spirit!
