Royal Hawaiian Luau – Aha’aina
The Royal Hawaiian, known as the “Pink Palace of the Pacific,” is Waikiki’s second oldest hotel. It’s an iconic landmark in Hawaii, and one of the island’s best luaus takes place at the hotel’s beautiful oceanfront lawn. Aha’aina Luau is a traditional Hawaiian luau in grand Royal Hawaiian style!
Prior to the luau dinner, enjoy watching a variety of cultural presentations, including kapa making (a cloth made of pounded bark), poi (taro root) pounding and na lawai'a (tending of fishing tools). Then sit down to a mouthwatering buffet dinner featuring a variety of delicacies (see menu below). The evening caps off with a memorable Polynesian show, with hula and song that commemorates the ancient islanders' rich history and culture.
