Traditional Hawaiian Celebration


Safe Access Oahu

Starting September 13, 2021, the City and County of Honolulu’s “Safe Access Oahu” program requires all guests 12 years of age and older to provide proof of an approved COVID-19 full vaccination or approved negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of entry, along with valid picture identification, to enter restaurants, bars, luaus and other areas of entertainment, throughout Oahu. This also includes fitness centers and spas, as well as many of our resort and island activities. Children under the age of 12 are exempt.

We look forward to welcoming you to Aha’aina Luau with aloha.

Every Monday and Thursday 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.

Before luaus there were ‘Aha‘aina—a feast of food, mele (song) and hula. 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.

‘Aha‘aina Luau will follow all current government social distancing and gathering requirements. Currently tables will range in size from 2 to 10 people from the same party/household. Masks are required at all times except for while seated at your table. Dinner is a three course feast conveniently served at your table.
