Ka Moana Luau
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.
A lei greeting and live Hawaiian music will welcome you as you enter. Ka Moana Luau offers many hands-on cultural activities and crafts – such as hula lessons, lei making, and Polynesian tattooing.
Mai Tais and other tropical cocktails are available, as is beer, wine, and soft drinks.
The buffet features many traditional Hawaiian foods, such as roasted Kalua pork, Lomi Lomi salmon, Poi, Poke, as well as many other local favorites. In addition to the new venue, Ka Moana Luau has also upgraded and expanded its buffet offerings to satisfy a more refined palate. They have also added many more organic, locally grown or sourced ingredients to their menu to make it a farm-to-table dining experience.
Join us on a voyage across Ka Moana (the ocean) and experience the cultural chants, dances & songs from some of the many islands that make up Polynesia. Witness the beauty of Hula ʻAuana from Hawaiʻi, the fast-paced ʻoteʻa from Tahiti, impressive Samoan fire-knife performances and more!
