Hawaii Luaus for Visitors
The Ali'i Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center is considered Oahu's most authentic Hawaiian Luau. The center's dedication to preserving Hawaiian culture can be felt from the moment you enter the luau grounds and receive your fresh flower lei greeting. As the pig is lifted from the steaming rocks of the imu (underground oven), you'll watch the arrival of the Hawaiian royalty, the Ali'i Court, who will ask you to join them in a traditional Hawaiian feast. As you enjoy your delicious meal, the all-Hawaiian show begins with hula kahiko, or ancient dances, that tell stories of old Hawaii.
Insider Info: This is a non-alcoholic luau, there are no cocktails served. Drive-time from Waikiki to the luau grounds in Laie is approximately 1.5 hours, so you may want to make a day of it and go out to the North Shore early in the morning to enjoy the beautiful beaches and famous surf. Luau held Monday-Saturday.
