  • Loved this place. Extraordinary how the staff are a large percentage of students working the program for education!!! I LOVE that!! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Our guide was Anne, and we found her informative, caring, and sweet. The dinner at the Prime/crab buffet was great. But the show at the end of the day, was exquisite!! Ha breath of life.
  • This is a gem of humanity that every person should experience. The entertaining education about various peoples of Polynesia encourages a broader appreciation for culture worldwide, the value of learning others, and the beauty harnessed in tradition. The show “Ha: Breath of Life” was absolutely breathtaking. The demonstration of family, leadership, tribal loyalty, battle, and forgiveness through dance and song is stirring to the core. Dinner is also delicious, but the true value is being immersed in another world for the day. Strongly recommended.
  • The Island villages were awesome. The whole family loved it. Samoa and Tonga were my favorites. Great activities too. The night show was spectacular! Loved the buffet too. If you’re an Football fan, check out the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame. Be sure to make this one of your stops on Oahu. Benefits Polynesian students.
  • A really great experience! You need lots of time to explore everything but learning about each of the different cultures and getting to visit each of the villages was great. The luau and food were good, and the Ha! breath of life show was awesome! Definitely worth a day of our vacation!!
  • Great place to learn the culture of Polynesian countries. Great food, and very friendly staff. Make sure you stay hydrated though. A lot of sun there. And the show they put on at the Pacific theater is just awesome! If you find yourself on that island, you definitely need to go there.
