Activities at Paradise Cove include:
Arts and Crafts:
The arts and crafts of old Hawaii are as beautiful as they are intricate and complex. During your visit to Paradise Cove, be sure to visit the Hawaiian Village and take part in arts and crafts demonstrations. Learn how to make a traditional Hawaiian lei or leave with a slightly more permanent memory, temporary Polynesian tattoos.
In ancient Hawaii, games were created as a form of entertainment, but also to develop the skills of the warriors. At Paradise Cove you can take part in some of the more popular traditional Hawaiian games. To test your skills try 'O'o ihe (Spear throwing), 'Ulu maika (Rolling stone disks) and Moa pahe'e (Dart sliding).
Shower of Flowers:
Imagine standing on a beautiful white sand beach gently showered by fragrant island flowers. Witness skilled tree-climbers ascend the highest of palm trees and spread the aloha of the islands with a floral cascade, making this dream-like scene into an experience you will remember forever.
Hukilau on the Beach:
Paradise Cove keeps the traditions of old Hawaii alive with a nightly Hukilau on the beach. You are invited to participate in the ceremonial pulling of the fish nets to the rhythms of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant
At Hawaii's only Imu Amphitheater, take a seat to view the elaborate process of traditional cooking in the Hawaiian underground oven. In a ceremony following the practices and rituals of ancient times, you will see exactly how your delicious Hawaiian meal is prepared.
Paradise Cove Extravaganza:
With the most spectacular Hawaiian sunset as a backdrop, the Paradise Cove Main Stage explodes with the beauty and excitement of the traditional songs and dances of Hawaii and Polynesia. Award-winning dancers will entertain and amaze you with a performance that is as unforgettable as the perfect setting of Paradise Cove itself.

The dancers were incredible. The fire dancer was absolutely amazing. The food was good and very plentiful. The musicians and singers were great.
The food was plenty with good variety and our server was phenomenal! The performance was entertaining. We scheduled their transportation to and from, our driver was very entertaining. The drive was relaxing. An enjoyable experience.
Loved everything, it went smooth. We didn’t have to do anything just show up at the designated time and place.
We had a great night at the Paradise Cove Luau. The food and entertainment were very good. My wife enjoyed the canoe ride even though it’s really a short trip. Highly recommend this Luau and Cousin Mo on our bus was fantastic.
Nothing made this experience beneficial. The food was poor and the drinks were definitely watered down. The deluxe package was a complete failure. People were back from the buffet eating before we even got our food. We had to search for a server for a drink. The show was more Vegas style then cultural. The whole luau was too commercialized.
Our guide, Holla, on bus 3, was awesome and entertaining! We loved it all from the ocean, the sunset, the show, the drinks and ample good food! It was well worth out trip! Learning about the Rich Hawaiian culture was very interesting. Would highly recommend Paradise Cove Luau!
We had an enjoyable time with Cousin Flo...will do it again when we come back...a little glitch in our pickup and ride, but all turned out well!
Food was excellent, and so so much of it! The show was amazing, they even had you go to different experiences so you could see how to Hulu and how they roast the pig. Best experience in Hawaii yet!
Food was great. Shows were excellent. Had a great time. The bus host the best we have seen in a long time.
The food is ok, not really a meat eater, but the show is amazing. Bery nice and bery approchable staff.
Everything was great. People at the luau are very nice and friendly. Food was great. Overall performance and entertainment is excellent. Cousin FiFi (guy in tour bus ) is awesome 🌟🌟🌟
The tour guide was amazing. She made the trip special ; she provide lots of information. Our cousin Flo was extremely funny too
The show was awesome. Could have used a couple more bartenders. The staff was attentive and enthusiastic.
Loved all the individuals working the Luau all very nice, informative and helpful! Enjoyed the view and the food was pretty good. Enjoyed the entertainment! It was our first Luau and we had a blast!
My husband and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary at this event. The food was wonderful and the entertainment was as well. We would definitely recommend this!
BOOK THIS!!! hands down, our favorite activity in Hawaii. We booked so many things and this was our favorite, food is great, free canoeing, games, and card w money for drinks. The shows are beautiful. We had so much fun!!
Our guide Cuz Mo and driver Capt Lei were the icing on the cake!!! The show was phenomenal and exciting and the food was delicious! The scenery was breathtaking. If anyone does Paradise Cove without Mo… they did not do it right! Five stars for sure!!
Loved the whole experience! The performance was great, food was delicious, and loved the drinks too.
Way Over priced , food was bland. Just a good photo opportunity . Gift shop was under stocked………………….
It was an amazing experience our guide on the bus cianace (sorry if it spelt your name wrong) was super fun and engaging. loved the whole experience!! Definitely would recommend!!
The bus transportation and the fire dance. We enjoyed the Paradise Cove Dancers and staff. They were exceptional in making the luau memorable.
Prior to confirm, we asked and were told beverages were included at the luau. Nonalcoholic beverages with the exception of tap water were available at cost after paying more than $140 per ticket without transportation. This should be reconsidered and clearly noted on the website.
Enjoyed the evening through the eyes of our grandchildren in their early 20’s. Beautiful evening and sunset! However, could use a bit more alcohol in their very weak drinks! Great dancers!
This was the best experience I have ever had, I definitely think everyone should do this. The bus ceyonca was absolutely AMAZING!!!! She kept the party going
Everything was simply amazing , the only thing I would change is the transportation part. A group of people were late to the stop and late coming out of the cove which was inconsiderate of others on the bus. I think there should be a policy on making others late
Paradise Cove had Poor service, the staff put away the drinking water dispenser early before the guests left the Laua. The all -you -can - eat food was put away early with no access for more!
The show was (average) produced except the Warrior FIRE show portion was good along with the motorcoach Bus ride
I paid over $500 for a family of 4 Adults.
It was very enjoyable and interactive. We enjoyed taking pics with the parrots as well as the canoe ride! It was so much going on at one time that we couldn’t do everything ( I really wanted to do the dart throwing). The show was entertaining. Our tour bus guide was so welcoming and friendly and remembered everyone’s name. I enjoyed the culture. I would def come again with more of my family the next time we visit Hawaii.
Awesome show. I saw this show 24 years ago and still love it.
Food was delicious.
Mo our tour bus guide was excellent also.
I feel it was the hospitality from all of the staff there at Paradise Cove. From the driver to our Host AKA(Ceonce)🙂 I believe it was one of the best shows I’ve seen. The food was fantastic and again the hospitality of all the staff made it more memorable. Thank you for making our visit to Hawaii so special!!!
We enjoyed the entire event. The foot was good, and the entertainment was excellent. We had a great time. We recommend it to friends and family.
Best luau ever. Gorgeous views, awesome staff, great entertainment, food and drinks.
Clean and friendly.
