We had an absolutely great time at Diamond Head Luau! We met Rix the manager who was very personable and made the experience all the much better. It is one of the smaller crowd of Luau’s, making it more intimate, which we were looking for. The food was delicious! There were stations of food which you were given a food ticket for each station to redeem. The staff was great, and the show very entertaining. We are so happy we chose this Luau as oppose to the bigger and more crowded Luaus. Would recommend!!! Thank you Rix!

Great Luau!

This luau is held below Diamond head which is a one of a kind iconic mountain located in Honolulu.
This is the most beautiful location just out of Waikiki.
You have water and Diamond head near by.

Also this luau has a unique foods.
Normally Kalua pork, Lomilomi, Poi etc… are served at Luaus but you have organic foods from several local chefs at this luau.
They serve Ahi poke, Kalua pork burger, Mahi mahi, Kona abalone, several kind of chicken, organic roasted vegetables and many many more!( they have some options for vegan and vegetarian). The food is very high-end extremely delicious.
I really love their foods🥳
