CEO wants Islanders Luau to come back twice yearly!

We decorated a company's parking lot in San Diego, grilled our teriyaki chicken, served it on our gorgeous buffet, gave guests custom tattoos, and entertained them with our lovely hula maidens and our fierce haka warriors. The CEO was pretty happy....

Maril, everyone had a great time. You guys did a great job. Please put me down for June 21st and Sept 22 in 2018. I want to book every year, first and last day of Summer. Let me know what you need from me. Thanks!

Wedding Reception in Ontario

It is a privilege to get asked to cater, decorate, and entertain at a wedding reception!  We know that they will remember this party for the rest of their lives, so the pressure is on.  Yet, we feel that way about most of our luaus.  The host/hostess is always so excited and has big dreams about the event.  Everyone on our staff tries their best to make each luau a success.

Words cannot possibly describe the absolutely incredible service and experience provided by Islanders Luau. The entertainment, the food, the decorations - literally everything was A+. Maril and his team are amazing. Our guests loved every minute, every bite and every dance. Our guests were truly mesmerized during the performances, and they raved about the food and the lei greeting. In addition, on top of the outstanding outcome of the event, Maril was truly a pleasure to work with during the planning phase (and patient with all my many questions!). 100% 5* recommendation.

"The Legendary Luau!"

A law firm in Carlsbad hired us for their company luau, and they asked for the works--lots of dancers, full-catering, a pig, photo booth, and decor.  

Islander’s Luau put on an amazing event for my firm party of 80 people. Everything was perfect—every person on the team was very nice, personable, professional, and easy to work with. The food was excellent and the show was fabulous. My co-workers are calling the party THE LEGENDARY LUAU!!

50th Wedding Anniversary

A review that is this positive is quite intimidating for us to live up to, but the Islanders Luau crew truly strives to make each event the very best possible.  We know that our customers are throwing a party for very special reasons, and it is important for us to make it a success!

I cannot Thank you enough for the amazing evening you created by bringing the Islands to us for my parents’ 50th Anniversary!

Ohana is the best word I can think of to describe Maril and the Islander’s Luau! Words can hardly describe how Maril and his family far exceeded all of our expectations for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary! My parents have visited the Islands of Hawaii for the last 50 years of their marriage as a place for vacation, rejuvenation, and for the love of each other and the Islands!
When I first spoke with Maril he stated that they would bring the Islands to us!! That is the very best explanation to describe all that Maril brought to our celebration! The experienced dancers, the delicious food, the authentic music, the engaging costumes, and the warm people of the Islands created the passion for the Islands! Everyone that had ever attended a luau in Hawaii, stated, commented, and expressed that the Islander’s Luau was the very best Luau that they had ever attended!!
I will say that Maril felt like family the moment I met him and I chose Islander’s Luau simply by looking on the internet and talking to Maril over the phone! He is a genuine, personable, warm, authentic, professional, courteous, talented, engaging, and an impressive Chief!!
I know that my Daughter and my Father both posted a review to Yelp. I was also able to post a review on Yelp but the site continues to say it is having a problem. This is what I posted to Yelp and please feel free to re-post if you can get the google site to work.
Thank you Maril and your family so sincerely for being a part of our family, ohana! Mahalo

Kindest and Warmest regards!

A popular review site's "algorithms" think these reviews are Too good to be true!

A well-known review site uses an algorithm to decide which reviews are true and which ones are fake.  Anything they deem to be fake is listed as "not currently recommended".  Not only has their algorithm rejected reviews from our friends and family--even if they were paying clients, but they have also rejected twelve  5-star reviews from clients who spent their valuable time writing heartfelt reviews.  Here they are!

Toro Company Party

We worked with Patrice for over a year (!) to help her plan her company luau for 180 people at Toro Irrigation Company in Riverside. It included some great island props, pig ceremony and the show. Since they were on a tight schedule we organized the catering so that we fed all 180 people in about 20 mins. Even though their business presentations went over their time schedule, we were able to make up for it and accomplish their luau event on-time.

I’ve gotten lots of emails and complements this morning on what a great event we had yesterday and what a great time people had…you all put on a wonderful show, and the food was great! One person also asked for your info as he is going to suggest you guys for his friend’s sister’s wedding reception. Hopefully this will generate more business for you all! Again, thank you so much…it was great working with you!!

25 Years of Aloha!

Islanders Luau helped Irene and Ken celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary with island catering, entertainment and a Photo Booth!

My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Islanders luau—we had one of the most beautiful Anniversaries ever. They were very accommodating and very friendly, helpful & extremely courteous. They were on time and the food was fantastic, and the entertainment was exceptionally beautiful!!!! Our guests were blown away how everything had ran smoothly and on time. To this day they are still talking about it. We wish to thank Maril and his staff for the most memorable anniversary party ever. Islanders Luau deserves five stars, hands-down!

Two reviews for one event!

Islanders Luau was asked to come to Newport Dunes for a company's Family and Friends Luau, and not only did the company write a great review, but the Newport Dunes Manager did, too! This place is fun for the whole family! 

I was so impressed with Islanders Luau!! What a great entertainment experience for all!! The Newport Dunes will definitely use your company for all future events with a luau theme!! Thank you!
— --Kristi M., Corporate Sales Manager
My company hired Islanders Luau for the entertainment portion only, since the venue would not allow outside food vendors. The entire team was professional and courteous, and they showed up when they said they would to set up. We had the decor, band, male and female dancers and lei greeter. They really made our company/client event special and everyone had a great time! Thank you again to Maril and his team for a job well done!

Engagement Party

Islanders Luau is chosen for many weddings and anniversaries, as well as this engagement party, because we throw a luau like what you would see on the islands, rather than a luau that came out of the local party store.  Our luaus have island ambiance--perfect for romance!  From our impressive catering table, to our professional entertainment, We Bring the Islands To You!

Islanders Luau is awesome!! I had an engagement party for my daughter. We had lei greeters, their Kalua Pig ceremony, and the full Polynesian show. The food was great, and the whole crew was perfect! What a fun night! I want to have another Luau! Thanks Islanders Luau for a fun entertaining evening!
