  • Our visit was amazing. It was our first visit so we opted for a guided tour. I recommend this for any first time visitors. Bruna, our tour guide was sweet, information, energetic and a lot of fun...

  • Great family experience. We came as a couple for the first time here. Would highly recommend getting there as soon as they open to spend more time going through each of the islands. We got there later and wished we could have spent more time. The ticket was good for three days, so that could be something if you don’t get it all in. The tour to the temple was great and the food was pretty awesome. The show was the highlight and really well done with very seasoned actors and cast that have some great heritage.
  • Great place to emerge into the Polynesian cultures and learn about each island culture and language. Definitely a fun and family friendly place to be at. A big plus is that they let you come back for 3 additional days for free so you can see and do other activities. I recommend you pay for the fire dance Hā (Breath of Life) and the Luau for the full experience. Friendly reminder to be there when they open at 1230 so you can spend more time/see more things at the center.
