Ahaaina Luau

Traditional Hawaiian Celebration

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 Ahaaina, A Royal Celebration.

Before luaus there were Ahaaina—a feast of food, mele (song) and hula. In ancient times the Hawaiian people came together to celebrate momentous occasions, these gatherings were called Ahaaina (which translates to gathering for a meal). The Royal Hawaiian is located on sacred grounds and we have created a modern, yet timeless Ahaaina to honor the land’s majestic history through food, song, stories, hula, and culture—a true celebration of The Royal and its heritage.

Ahaaina 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.
