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 fireknives, 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.

The PCC luau is the authentic experience that I was looking for when I came to Hawaii. The upgraded version of this experience was well worth the extra cost as it lead to a far better level of service. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great luau.

We all had a wonderful experience at the Polynesian cultural center. The tour guide did an outstanding job. The luau and nighttime show were both very entertaining.

Wonderful experience and worth going. The workers are so friendly and kind. They do an incredible job with their shows, but specially the second one. It held my attention the whole time. Keoni was our personal guide who made everything easier for us, he was very helpful and so patient while explaining every single village and their attractions, best location on Oahu.

If you are visiting Honolulu you must visit here! I was hesitant at first at what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The grounds are absolutely stunning and the shows are interactive and quite funny! We have never laughed as hard as we did at the island of Tonga show. I will never forget this experience and cannot wait to go back! Polynesian Culture Center you guys rock!
