Germaine's Luau

Bonus Choice with a 3, 5, and 7-Day Card
Your Hawaii visit isn't complete until you've experienced a traditional luau. And America's most spectacular luau takes place right here on Oahu. Join hundreds of new friends for an evening of exhilarating music, dazzling dancing and sumptuous dining.

Germaine's Luau is the perfect place to kick off your shoes and go native! Germaine's "Too Good to Miss" Luau is dedicated to sharing the ohana (family) feeling at this Hawaiian mainstay, and a trip to Germaine’s will complete your Hawaiian vacation!

After receiving a traditional shell lei and a warm aloha, the call of the conch shell beckons you to an all-you-can-eat Hawaiian/American buffet, complete with the island cocktail mai tai and blue Hawaii. Feast on Kalua pig, poi, fried chicken, teriyaki beef, and more delicious island and continental dishes. The tradition of the luau dates back to 1856, and Germaine's stays true to many of those early ways. The feast itself is called the ahaaina, and includes the imu ceremony for removing the roast pig from its cooking pit.

Great time!
By Pammieb Verified Reviewer from Portland, OR on
Pros:
Good service, Good Hospitality, Great food
Cons:
Seating,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

We had a blast here, the show was fun, the food was good and the view of the show was great. We drove ourselves as we stayed in Makaha, the directions were from Waikiki so it was a bit confusing, but we made it. The seating is on picnic benches and they are hard, bring a cushion if you can. Good drinks, if a bit watered down.

Entertainment Great...food not so much
By Rita Verified Reviewer from Southern California on
Pros:
Beach Venue, Audience Participation, Great dancing, Great Music
Cons:
Food is not that good,
Best Uses:
As the bonus,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

I think it is close to decide your bonus for the Ha Breath of Life Dinner show and this luau or the Dolphin Encounter. You can get discount ticekts for this luau for around $54 a person. The dolphin encounter at the door is $105...so you get the most for your money doing that, but this is a lot more entertainment for the money. The food is just not that good, so don't expect you will enjoy it. The 3 free drink tickets and all the free soft drinks and tea you want is a good deal too.

Loved it, a MUST DO!
By Kayla Verified Reviewer from San Leandro, Ca on
Pros:
Location, food, Proformance, Tour guide
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

This is the sencond time I have gone to Germaine's Luau and I love it more each time. The food is so delicious and hard to find the flovor of their kalua pork elsewhere. Our guide cousin Matt was so entertaining the entire bus ride to and from the luau. I think I would go back to the same luau everytime I go to the islands.

Really fun and lovely location
By Cat the Adventurer Verified Reviewer from San Jose, CA on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

It took a bit of effort to reserve a spot for the luau since we didn't know which day we wanted to do it. After all that though, it was smooth sailing. The tour bus came to our hotel to pick us up. They were quite prompt! The bus ride was about 30mins and the bus guide was fun and told us all about the luau and island. When we arrived, we were given a shell lei. The location was very beautiful. We came right when the sun was setting. Picture taking galore! The food was good too, but maybe because I was definitely hungry. They had a line system that worked well. They'd call us by our bus group number and line up. I think my friend's said the food was decent. There are drink bars for alcoholic drinks and another one for fruit juice and water. The entertainment was the usual. I can't say it was super awesome or engaging. I've seen shows at the Polynesian Cultural Center and this was pretty much similar. I enjoyed the experience. I recommend it to anyone who has a GO Card.

Great Show
By shakeys world from utah on
Pros:
Great show and food
Cons:
Not family appropriate
Best Uses:
Go oahu card
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

This was a fun luau. There is a lot of interaction with the audience. The food was wonderful. The only objection we had was the over stated fact that they wanted you to get drunk. This was a turn off for those families with small children.

Germaines Luau
By Mother and Wife Verified Reviewer from Orange, Ca on
Pros:
Cousin Jerry AWESOME, Good food, Nice Show
Cons:
Little Bugs,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

We went to Germaines Luau on a weekday, which I would recomend I think it was a great size crowd. We had a large group of 10 adults and 1 child and to my surprise they reserved us our own table in a great location. Our tour guide was Cousin Jerry and he was great, even hooked us up with some extra drink tickets. I would say the view of the ocean is great. The show is not bad and the food worked for me I loved the lomi, lomi and I want some more right now. The only thing that bugged was the bugs, we did not notice them at the time but about half of our group had lots of bug bits on there legs.

Best night the whole trip
By Family of Four Verified Reviewer from Sacramento, Ca on
Pros:
Good food, Entertainment
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

This luau was by far the best choice of things to do. Very traditional, did the pig ceremony and even offered seating on the ground. The entertainment was authentic and very fun. The kids and I were able to dance on stage and everything! Comparing it to the Hilton Hawaiian Village luau this one was ten times better! We shouldve gone to this one again instead of dropping the $100 per person for the Hilton.

Pretty Good
By Marcus from Garland, TX on
Pros:
Great entertainment, Great dancers, Good food
Cons:
Bus ride was a long,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

Overall, the experience wasn;t too bad, but it didn't leave me with that "Wow" factor. "cousin" Taite was very entertaining on the ride down to the luau and back. The unveiling of the pig was fun and there was a great variety of dancers from across the Pacific. The picture that was taken costs $20. It would have been nice if that was included. The food was pretty good, but didn't seem overly Hawaiian. Next time, we will try a different luau to compare, but as a free event through the Go Card, it was a good deal.
