Take in this truly authentic Hawaiian experience, an Authentic Hawaiian Luau, at the Polynesian Cultural Center on Kamehameha Hwy, Laie. This cultural center allows guests to explore the rich heritage of the Pacific Islands through its 42-acre tropical paradise, featuring gorgeous scenery and many traditional and hands-on activities. Here your group can dine like royalty at a true Polynesian Luau, complete with a lively and largely traditional song and dance evening show. At the Hale Aloha Venue, the show starts every day at 5:30 pm, with locally genuine food buffet options starting at 5 pm. Your group will have three different dining experience options, the most popular being the Aliiluau buffet option, including tropical steamed fish, glazed chicken, strip loin, salmon, poke, and much, much more.
At the Hale Aloha Venue, you will see a gorgeous set of outdoor gardens and waterfalls, the setting really adding to the authenticity of the royal celebration of cultural heritage. Settle in for the Royal Court Procession, Imu unearthing, and locally true food and dance. See the sunset, see the show, and sing the songs on the 42 acres of breezy lagoon land and you will easily see why this experience has won the highly regarded Kahili Award for preserving Hawaiian culture. Be sure to catch the unburial of the Imu containing the pig, traditional Hawaiian food and continental cuisine. This center as a whole serves as one of Hawaii’s favorite visitor attractions, and you just may agree as the crew gives your group a lei upon departure, allowing you to keep up the tradition of throwing it in the waters when you leave, in hopes that you, like the lei, will return back to the island someday.
