Our most popular package offers general admission to our island villages, plus our award-winning Hawaiian Luau experience. Our authentic Ali‘i Luau includes the King’s procession, uncovering of the pig from imu (underground oven).  Also included are luau-level seats at our spectacular evening show, “Ha: Breath of Life”.

The Show:
Hā: Breath of Life. A story of passion, ignited by fire, song, and dance. The symbolic story of Mana and his beloved Lani, punctuated by Polynesian dance, music, and blazing fire knives, is told in “Hā: Breath of Life,” a stunning, new evening show featuring over 100 Polynesian natives, special effects, animation and surround sound. It is a Pacific isle saga of birth and death, love and family, triumph and tragedy.

The Ali’i Luau:
ALOHA! Welcome to our award-winning Ali’i Luau. In ancient Hawaii, it was customary to celebrate special occasions with ohana (family) and friends.

Today, we continue the tradition of the luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center. Held in a covered outdoor venue against a background of waterfalls and lush gardens, the Ali’i Luau is a royal celebration of our cultural heritage which includes the Royal Court procession, presentation of the imu (pork baked in an underground oven), and delicious traditional food and lively Hawaiian entertainment.

This is a nice place to visit. The shows are great- I mean, it’s my second visit to the center.. I like the food variety as well. Very satisfied.

March 12, 2019

Incredible place. So much to see and do. You really need the whole day to see everything, unless you go back the next day. The buffet and the show were pretty good too! Definitely worth the time.

March 12, 2019

We got several recommendations to visit this place, so we did. I think this package is the perfect one if you want to visit all the areas and see both shows, but not spend too much money on the extras. Don’t make any other plans for the day as it really does take up the entire day and the way back to the hotel is long too.
