Very nice affair... the host (guide) was very well informed and made the entire evening more enjoyable with his presentations. The multi-course meal was terrific,,, highly recommended.
A Cultural Journey Through Time
Waikiki’s storied history includes tales of island royalty, decadent feasts, and inspiring settings.
Every Monday evening, we pay homage to Helumoa, the legendary playground of Hawaiian royalty, with a modern interpretation of the traditional Hawaiian feast called Aha 'Aina, A Royal Celebration.
Waikiki’s only oceanfront sit-down vignette dinner show is a culinary and sensory celebration, commemorating Hawaiian culture and transforming the traditional island experience in grand Hawaiian style.
In ancient times, before luaus, the Hawaiian people came together to celebrate momentous occasions. These gatherings were called Aha ‘Aina. The Royal Hawaiian is located on sacred grounds and we have created a modern, yet timeless experience to honor the land’s majestic history through food, song, stories, hula, and culture—a true celebration of the islands and their heritage.
