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 island cocktails like mai tais and blue Hawaiis. Feast on Kalua pig, poi, fried chicken, teriyaki beef, and more delicious island and continental dishes. The luau dates back to 1856, and Germaine's stays true to many of those early traditions. The feast itself is called the ahaaina, and includes the imu ceremony for removing the roast pig from its cooking pit.

While you're enjoying your meal, performers take you on a journey through Polynesian musical traditions through dances like the Samoan fire-knife dance (an audience favorite), the Samoan slap dance, Tahitian dance, and Hawaiian hula dancing. If you're lucky—or unlucky, depending on your level of stage fright—you might be invited to join in.

Germaine's has room to accommodate up to 600 guests, and dining is family style at outdoor banquet tables, which means packing mosquito repellent. The luau is also held rain or shine! Bring a poncho if it looks like rain.

Your Go Oahu Card includes round-trip transportation from Waikiki. The ride takes about an hour, and your bus driver also plays tour guide and comedian. You can use your own transportation if you prefer, but be forewarned that you have to drive through an industrial area before arriving at the luau on the beach in Kapolei. It may seem like you're lost, but stick to the directions. Of course, with three free drink tickets included for Go Oahu Card users 21 and over, why not leave the driving to Germaine's? Ancient Hawaiian luaus could last three days, but at Germaine's the party ends at 10:30 pm.

If you choose to drive yourself (see directions and GPS instructions below), you'll have to pick up your tickets by 12:30 pm on the day of your reservation at GAC, 307 Lewers Street, Honolulu, HI 96815. The Go Oahu Card cannot be redeemed onsite at the luau.

Germaine's Luau has welcomed more than 3 million visitors since 1976 and was named America's best luau in the book America's Best! 100.

Best Vegetarian Luau
By The Vegetarians from New Mexico on
Pros:
Responsive Staff, Kid friendly, Excellent food, Authentic feel, Detailed Ingredients List, 3 Drink Coupons
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This was by far the better vegetarian luau of the 2 we enjoyed on the island. When you make your reservations, just request a vegetarian meal and it will be ready for you, seperately packaged. We got a vegetable stir-fry with tofu. We were also able to go through the line as well to sample all of the vegetarian options of which there were a couple. The drinks were strong, the entertainment good, and the place was very laid back and kid friendly when our kids decided to go exploring a bit and playing in the sand. Overall, it was a much more authentic and fun experience than the other luau we went to.

Show was good
By Diana Verified Reviewer from Arkansas on
Pros:
nice setting, Great dancers
Cons:
Food Wasn't Terrific,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

Bus ride was really long but the show was good and the setting was way better than most; right on the ocean with sand under your feet. Show was really good. I would recommend this if only for the setting. Food was not really great but OK.
