Not quite a hula show.... more of a sampler of the Polynesian people. Excellent fire dancing. Not as polished as many other shows, but one with skilled performers, and a heart-felt honesty. And it's free ! You can't go wrong.

This was great entertainment in the shopping centre - Mondays and Thursdays. I'd highly recommend. Lovely nights entertainment - you wonder how they can move so many body parts at once!

We had been to a luau on our last trip to Hawaii and didn't want to spend the money again. We found this on trip advisor and it was a 5 minute drive from the Fairmont. We loved it. We got the same show as we had at the prior luau and the price was certainly right!

We decided to go watch the performance after reading other reviews. For the cost of performance (Free). This is a very good show. The MC was very delightful. The entertainers are young but very entertaining. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting to go and see for yourself.

We saw this show twice and were glad we did. The first time we saw the show, it seemed off. Maybe they were having a bad day which can happen. We came back later in the week as we were doing some shopping and saw the show again ... A totally different show! We had expected to see the same... More

Loved this show! So awesome and such amazing talent. It's so refreshing that it is for free too! What a great thing they are doing here :). We loved it and enjoyed our view from the top of monstera at dinner.

A free show on Mondays and Thursdays in the shopping centre. They really give it everything, and it is good to see some younger people in the action.

This is a great show. It's a group of young people and they do a great job. It lasts about 30 minutes. It's so worth it. You really get the feel of the islands. They ask for donations and I think it's worth it. Not everyone can afford $100 for a dinner and show --this is a way that everyone... More

A great Luau show - Hawaiin hula dancing, New Zealand haka, Fire dancing. Located in the square behind the Foodland supermarket at Mauna Lani. Easy free parking & there was seating available. Show starts at 7pm & we arrived at 6.15pm. Apparently May is low season, so the show was reasonably quiet. We got a front row seat, but the... More
