A ROYAL HAWAIIAN LUAU
Every Monday and Thursday evening, The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, pays homage to Helumoa, the legendary playground of Hawaiian royalty where the resort now stands, with a modern interpretation of the traditional Hawaiian feast called Ahaaina, A Royal Celebration.
Before luaus there were Ahaaina—a feast of food, mele (song) and hula. In ancient times the Hawaiian people came together to celebrate momentous occasions, these gatherings were called Ahaaina (which translates to gathering for a meal).
The Royal Hawaiian is located on sacred grounds and we have created a modern, yet timeless Ahaaina to honor the land’s majestic history through food, song, stories, hula, and culture—a true celebration of The Royal and its heritage.

EXPERIENCE HISTORY AND CULTUTRE
Ahaaina means "gathering for a meal" in Hawaiian. Ahaaina is a beautiful location to experience Hawaii's magnificent history and culture through food, mele (singing), hula dancing, and storytelling.
The show begins with an introduction to traditional Hawaiian activities such as kapa making (cloth made from tree bark), poi making, and na lawaia (fishing tackle), and continues with a "pu" (a shell call) to signal the beginning of the feast.
ENJOY HULA DANCING AND
After the meal, the deep history and culture of the islands will unfold through hula dancing and Hawaiian music.
