Germaine's Luau tickets

Gate Prices Adult $88.00
Child (3-12) $68.00
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 authentic, backyard-style luau.

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.

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.

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.

Do NOT waste your time
By Luke from Salt Lake City, Utah on
Pros:
Kalua Pork was great.
Cons:
Unfriendly Staff Table arrangement hurts your neck Smell of Industrial Park
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

I've wanted to see Hawaii since I was a young boy and this was a dream come true after years of hard work. We may never be able to afford such a trip again. So to attend a real Hawaiian Luau was top of our list. Upon arrival at Germaine's we could smell fumes from the near by industrial park. The staff treated us like we were just another day's work for them. There was an old man passing out paper plates who looked angry to be there. The tables were arranged in such a way that you had to turn your head hard to the left or the right depending upon which side you were on for the entire show. It hurt after a while. Who ever had that idea didn't think it trough very well. Segments of fairly nontraditional and seemingly made-up Hawaiian dancing were punctuated by the Master of Ceremony who came on like a game show host singing like Don Ho. Their were electric guitars - definitely not Polynesian. The female costumes looked like a floor show at Nevada casino rather than a true Polynesian cultural experience. Polished coconut braziers and all. Audience members who were pressed into participation had to turn around and shake their butts in sad attempt at a Tahitian dance and men had to take their shirts off and dress like hula girls. I felt sorry for them. On the up side the fire dancer was very skilled and the Kalua Pig was excellent! My advice - find another, more traditional Luau.

Smart Destinations Response: Hi Luke, Thank you for this honest review. We regret to hear that you did not love your experience at Germaine's Luau and have sent this information over to them. We are happy to hear the pork was great and hope the rest of your time in Hawaii was amazing!

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

Fantastic! Everything about this evening was fantastic. So casual and friendly; great performance; great food and cocktails. I loved it and I am pretty sure I will do it again sometimes. My only negative comment would be: pick up is included, but you have to pay for the transportation. That's not only case with this attraction, but with mostly all of the attractions in the Guidebook. We paid more that $150 just for transportation here and there. And if you wanna use public transportation you better prepare to be in the bus the whole day, wherever you go.

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

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

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:
Great dancers, nice setting
Cons:
Food Wasn't Terrific,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Germaine's Luau:

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.
