Germaine’s Luau – The Original Backyard-style Hawaiian Luau

Take in the rich cultural heritage of the pacific islands. Enjoy the spectacular Polynesian show delivered to you at the ocean’s edge, under the stars and palm trees. Be touched by the magic of ancient Hawaii and all its splendor. Feel the spirit of Aloha, experience a Backyard-style Hawaiian Luau and discover why Germaine’s Luau is “too good to miss.”

Let us take you back 100 years & 27 miles from Waikiki to our exclusive beachfront property on the shores of West Oahu. Since 1976, over 3 million visitors to our Islands have become a part of the Germaine’s Ohana. Germaine’s Luau® has been acclaimed as America’s Best Luau in “America’s Best 100” and has been filmed by ABC’s “Good Morning America”. Come to where you will still experience a traditional luau that recaptures the “Spirit of Old Hawaii”.

The founding of our luau began in the early 1970’s at Sea Life Park, the popular aquatic family venue overlooking picturesque Makapu’u Point on East Oahu. In 1976, we relocated to the sunny west side of our island to a beachfront property near the Barber’s Point lighthouse where it remains today.

The area was the former seaside residence of Rosalei and William Stephenson & their family. The Stephensons were renowned for their hospitality and enjoyed hosting Hawaiian luau as a regular family tradition.

Our luau has evolved over the years but the true spirit of Aloha remains as the defining element of the Germaine’s Luau® experience.

You will leave with fond memories of what a true luau is all about…a one of a kind experience not found anywhere else in the world. Upon arrival, all of our guests are traditionally welcomed with a Hawaiian Shell Lei. The sounding of the conch shell announces the beginning of the evening’s festivities! Picture taking opportunities await as the Royal Court of Polynesia makes its entrance. As the imu (underground oven) is uncovered, the savory aroma of the Kalua Pua’a (roasted pig) – your main course of the evening – reminds us that dinner is soon to be served.
