Was a little disappointed with the lack of food choices but the food was good. Enjoyed the entertainment however I thought the costumes were more commercial than authentic. All in all a great evening!!

What a beautiful night out. I'm really not one for "shows", buts this a cut above the rest. Very talented people are portraying to story of Hawaii and showcasing many aspects of the island experience. From an electric Ukelele to fire eating, I was mesmerized....More

Every Monday and Thursday evening at the Royal Hawaiian. It is only Oceanfront with Luxury Luau dinner in Waikiki. ‘Aha‘aina is title of this luau, which mean gathering for a meal in Hawaiian language. Luau story is about Hawaii's history from ancient to modern.

Not strictly Hawaiian with all sorts of polynesian cultuers thrown in the mix. Not cheap and Royal Hawaiian guests get a sort of unpublished seating preference. Entertaining and fun for kids, but not too young. Good if not exceptional buffet but if you can get...More

Paid almost $400 to watch a pretty boring show. The restaurant next-door has a patio where you can watch the entire thing for free and choose the food you want. The food is my biggest complaint. Buffet style with IHOP quality. Advice, eat next door...More

This is the best luau ('Aha 'Aina) in all of Hawaii. Waikiki beach, Diamond Head and Hawaiian sunset are the backdrops. The food is delicious farm/fish to table. The seating is intimate. The stories, history, pace of show and performers is amazing. Love it and...More

I had unlimited drinks when I was there in January. They kept refilling them at the table.

They don't have deals or discounts. We booked directly through their website (link through Royal Hawaiian). You should book early as possible though, seating is very limited and performances are only on Mondays.
