A Royal Luau - A Cultural Journey Through Time
Waikiki’s storied history includes tales of island royalty, decadent feasts, and inspiring settings.
Every Monday evening, The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort, pays homage to Helumoa, the legendary playground of Hawaiian royalty where the resort now stands, with a modern interpretation of the traditional Hawaiian feast called Aha 'Aina, A Royal Celebration.
Waikiki’s only oceanfront sit-down vignette dinner show is a culinary and sensory celebration, commemorating Hawaiian culture and transforming the traditional island experience in grand Royal Hawaiian style.
“Before ‘luaus’ there were ‘Aha ‘Aina’—a feast of food, mele (song) and hula,” says General Manager, Kelly Hoen. “In ancient times the Hawaiian people came together to celebrate momentous occasions, these gatherings were called Aha ‘Aina (which translates to gathering for a meal). The Royal Hawaiian is located on sacred grounds and we have created a modern, yet timeless Aha ‘Aina to honor the land’s majestic history through food, song, stories, hula, and culture—a true celebration of The Royal and its heritage.”
The Royal Hawaiian’s Aha ‘Aina is a lavish epicurean journey through time.
