As far as a legit experience this could not be better. From weaving your own bowls from coconut leaves to the authenticity of the cooking this is truly an experience I would encourage any visitor to Oahu to book. 100% worth every penny. Thanks!

One of the highlights of our trip. It felt so genuine and authentic. It’s worth so much more than the money we paid. Also worth noting that it’s the best meal we’ve gotten on the island so far.
~ Dana, Atlanta, GA
Experience of a lifetime! Strongly recommend this fun and exciting adventure, learning about the Polynesian culture and being taught how to prepare our own meal from the many useful, natural resources available. Chris and his crew are very knowledgeable and kind. They made this experience unforgettable and we made new friends among us! Thank you for a culturally enriched and educational experience!

Really enjoyed this experience! Very special to participate in the preparation of our Samoan meal while learning about Creasepaul, his people and culture. Small group made this an intimate experience. I would highly recommend it.
~ John Brian, Seattle, WA
This was truly a unique and culturally enriching experience! Cooking with Creasepaul and his associates was one of the highlights of my trip to Hawaii. They were friendly, savvy and happy to impart their knowledge. Creasepaul was also a fantastic conversationalist. Overall an outstanding experience!

"I always love coming here when I travel to Hawaii. Everyone who works at the center is just so friendly. It is family-friendly and for all ages. The food is amazing and as authentic as it gets for the luau."
~ Burgundee, Los Angeles, CA
“Too Much! There’s just too much to see and do. I highly recommend moving up a level to the ambassador level. The guides are well versed in all the islands and maximize your time. The luau is one of the best on the island. And you must spring for the evening entertainment, 'Ha: Breath of Life.' What a fantastic production!”
~ Rush, Spokane, WA
“The Ambassador package was by far the way to go. We arrived at each village about 5–10 minutes before each of their performances and got excellent seats. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the whole center. Our dinner was amazing and included crab and prime rib. All in an amazing day!”
~ Dennis, Houston, TX
“The food and individual shows at each village are fantastic and that does not even compare to the show at the end of the day. I would say this place should be second only to Pearl Harbor. Get away from the beaches and city life to visit beyond Honolulu and Waikiki. You will learn more about the real Hawaii.”
~ Douglas, Champlin, US
“Learn about several Polynesian Islands and their cultures. This was a day well spent. Great for the whole family. The evening show is phenomenal. It brought tears to my eyes.”
