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 harborside 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 the luau. Ka Moana offers many hands-on cultural activities and crafts – such as hula lessons, lei making, and Polynesian tattooing.

The luau has an on-site lemonade stand which serves fresh squeezed lemonade featuring locally grown lemons and locally sourced honey. Mai Tais and other tropical cocktails are also 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.  

Ka Moana offers three tiered packages: Classic, Splash, and Celebrity. The Classic package includes a shell lei, one drink ticket, access to the cultural activities, the luau buffet, and the Polynesian show. The Splash package includes all of the above plus slightly better seating and an additional drink ticket. Finally, the Celebrity package includes a fresh flower lei, a complimentary Mai Tai, table service, and seating closest to the stage. More details listed below. 

Getting There

Ka Moana offers round-trip transportation from several pick-up locations in the Waikiki and Honolulu area. This is the easiest and most comfortable way to get to the luau and can be added to your reservation during the check-out process.
