“An Absolute Must”

FIA FIA Polynesian Show
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 January 2018

We stayed at Marriot Beach Vacation Villas in Ko Olina, where this luau is held, every Tuesday night. Family came out from Waikiki to see the luaa with us, so age range was from 17 years old to 53 years old. We all enjoyed this show immensely. They do a wonderful job of showcasing the Polynesian culture. The food was wonderful. We all liked the pork the best. They also serve beef, teriyaki chicken and mahi mahi. Everything was wonderful. The Master of Cermonies has a great sense of humor and does a great job of injecting levity in to the show. The time will fly by. You will love it. You receive two drinks with your dinner (Mai Tais, wine, beer or soda). The show also has several, world champion, fire dancers. Very impressive.

Everything is highly organised - seats are sold in three categories and that gives priority on entry and table allocation. After that it is all pretty much the same - food, drinks etc.
The first half hour is more low key - arts and crafts, making head bands, watching the sun set, watching a roasted pig being taken from the cooking stones etc. Then a buffet dinner - all you can eat with pork, beef, fish, chicken etc and desserts. Two drinks as part of the entry ticket.
Then the show. Examples of dancing from different Polynesian countries, a little too much audience involvement (honeymooners, children, those married more than 50 years called to the stage and feted). The finale was fire dancing which was very spectacular. The MC was very smooth but asked too often "is everyone having a good time?".

Marriott changes their garden into a Polynesian heaven with a promising sunset and enjoyable meal. The entertainment is led by the most likable Hawaiian but the fire dance was the best that we have seen. Highly recommend the show.

This is great way to spend the afternoon/evening. The location is beautiful. We stayed at this Marriott property and every night had an absolutely gorgeous sunset. The Fia Fia show was terrific. The venue is smaller than most luaus, and therefore feels more intimate. You aren't sitting in a huge crowd trying to see some stage that is far away. There are three tiers of seating (price-wise), but I think all of them are fine - the middle tier may be worth the extra money, but I don't know if you need to pay for the top tier. You should however, get there 1/2 hour before they start because within each tier, it's first come, first seated. Plus, there are some nice vendors selling their handmade items. They have music and different things going on. The food was okay, and they didn't keep it out very long, so I don't think many people, if any, were able to have seconds. A couple of rum punch drinks are included with the cost, so overall, I would say it was definitely worth the money. The fire dance itself is truly spectacular. The dancers all worked very hard and you can see why it's rated the best luau on the island.
