Aha Aina Luau Show

Mondays & Thursdays

Experience an extraordinary journey of Waikiki through music, dance, and exquisite Island cuisine during our oceanfront Aha Aina luau and dinner show. Available every Monday and Thursday from 5:30-8:00 p.m.

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, A Royal Hawaiian Luau, to honor the land’s majestic history through food, song, stories, hula, and culture—a true celebration of The Royal and its heritage.

Waikiki’s only oceanfront dinner show is transforming the traditional island experience in grand Royal Hawaiian style every Monday and select Thursday evening.
