Aloha Tower in Honolulu Hawaii under a blue sky surrounded by palm trees.Ka Moana Luau features live Hawaiian music, fun-for-all-ages cultural activities, a farm-to-table luau buffet, and a thrilling Polynesian show. Its convenient harbor-side location, proximity to Waikiki, and short length (just over two hours) also makes it easy to coordinate with any boat tours, excursions, or other activities that you may have planned.

Ka Moana Luau (formerly located at Sea Life Park) is now conveniently located only four miles from Waikiki. Guests can experience their luau and award-winning Polynesian show at their brand-new space in the heart of downtown Honolulu – on the grounds of the historic Aloha Tower.

The Aloha Tower is a local landmark and a former lighthouse which overlooks Honolulu’s bustling harbor. Today this classic art deco-style building serves as both a marketplace and a popular tourist destination. It houses many shops and restaurants, and now serves as the new home (and backdrop) of the Ka Moana Luau.

Check-in begins at 4:45pm.

They have also added many more organic, locally grown or sourced ingredients to their menu to make it a farm-to-table dining experience.
