Fia Fia Show in Ko Olina provides all the things you expect with a luau – sunset oceanview, a (shell) lei greeting, tropical drinks, cultural demonstrations, tasty traditional dinner followed by colorful Polynesian dance and music. Yes, Fia Fia offers all those features, but what sets it apart is the master of ceremonies, Chief Sielu Avea. Wow, is that guy good! He’s warm, engaging, witty and abundantly talented.
How much did we enjoy Chief Avea? Well, we very rarely ever purchase the luau shots the event photographer snaps upon arrival, but we purchased our photo with Chief Avea.
The Polynesian show ends on fire with excellent Samoan fireknife dancing. I counted seven different fireknife dancers – that’s a lot, especially for a more smaller show.
Fia Fia is offered every Tuesday evening. Seating begins at 4:30pm. If you want a seat close to the stage, I recommend you arrive then. Before dinner begins at 5:30pm, you have the opportunity to learn about Polynesian crafts like weaving, fire starting, and the imu (underground oven). The Polynesian show begins at 7pm. We both thought the whole evening was very well done.
