"Aha Aina", a Royal Celebration
Join us in our "Aha Aina" or literally feast of food, song and hula at out beautiful oceanfront in Waikiki. It takes place right on world-famous Waikiki Beach, under the stars at the extravagant Royal Hawaiian Hotel, also known as the “Pink Palace of the Pacific.” You’ll enjoy great views of Diamond Head as a backdrop and the hotel’s royal atmosphere. (Please note starting April 2020 the luau will be at the Coconut Grove and not ocean front.)

The Pink Palace is one of the oldest and most popular and luxurious hotels in Waikiki. With its pink color, it is truly the most outstanding hotel on Waikiki Beach. Steeped in a rich and elegant history, this will be a night of extravagant dining and entertainment to remember.

Held every Monday & Thursday night at The Royal Hawaiian’s Ocean Lawn with the breathtaking backdrop of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head, the ‘Aha ‘Aina is composed of three spectacular acts. As guests enter the Aha ‘Aina grounds, the evening captures the spirit of traditional Hawaii with time-honored demonstrations such as kapa-making (cloth made of pounded bark), poi-pounding, and na lawai’a (tending of fishing tools). The night continues with the sound of a pu (conch) calling guests to feast, where a storyteller shares the significance of lei giving, the ocean, and taro while guests dine on exquisite pupu (hors de ouvres). After dinner, the Helumoa story unfolds—a dramatic performance, including hula and song, commemorates ancient islanders’ rich history and culture through a timeline of the historic Royal Hawaiian to the contemporary style of Hawaiian music and dance.

Come and feast! Only a short walk from almost every hotel in Waikiki, the central location of the Royal Hawaiian Luau truly makes this an essential dining and cultural experience. Come to this luau and enjoy being treated like royalty.
