Cultural activities, including traditional crafts and instrument lessons
Convenient location just outside Waikiki at the historic Aloha Tower oceanfront grounds
Experience the 2023 revamped Ka Moana Luau, now conveniently located at the oceanfront grounds of the historic Aloha Tower lighthouse, just outside Waikiki. Unlike other luaus in the area, this private outdoor space offers an immersive experience free from the distractions of bustling Waikiki traffic.
Upon arrival, receive a warm greeting with a lei, a refreshing Mai Tai cocktail, and the option for a professional photo session (additional cost). As the sun sets over the ocean, explore the various cultural activity stations. Learn to create coconut leaf headbands, flower wrist bands, and temporary Polynesian tattoos, or immerse yourself in the rhythms of Hawaii by trying your hand at playing traditional instruments like Hawaiian drums.
Indulge in an abundant dinner prepared by the renowned Chart House and their farm-to-table approach. The menu showcases an array of island flavors, including fresh local fish, succulent kalua pork slow-cooked all day in an underground hot stone stove, and tropical desserts. Enjoy the selection of specialty tropical cocktails, local craft beer, well drinks, and soda available at the bar.
Performances during the show portion will take you on a captivating journey through the history and culture of Hawaii and Polynesia. Highlights include an exhilarating Maori war dance, graceful hula performances, and a climactic fire dance, all accompanied by entertaining commentary and opportunities for audience participation. This unforgettable experience will leave you with lasting memories and a newfound appreciation for Hawaii.

WHY WE RECOMMEND THIS LUAU OVER OTHERS
Oceanfront outdoor setting, whereas other Waikiki luau locations include an indoor hotel ballroom and a rooftop garage adjacent to noisy streets
A more intimate setting versus other luaus which often hold 500-1200+ people
Catered by Honolulu's oldest restaurant Chart House, versus generic resort / mass-event food found at many other luaus
For those staying in Waikiki, centrally located in Honolulu just 3 miles outside Waikiki rather than heading to a Ko Olina / west coast luau (e.g., Paradise Cove, Germaine's, Chief's) which can be about 1 hour each way with traffic, and even more time saved versus the Polynesian Cultural Center (1-1.5 hours each way). Convenient coach bus transport available (enjoy the luau bar!).
Alcohol served (unlike alcohol-free Polynesian Cultural Center)
