Paina Luau Waikiki

Pa’ina Waikiki, a unique dinner party luau where the vibrant stories of Waikiki’s legendary eras come to life through festive mele (songs), hula and the highest caliber of Polynesian performing arts.

In the form of hula kahiko (ancient hula) we bring to life the stories of the elegant homes, lush natural beauty, and brilliant Hawaiian royals that once called these very grounds and Waikiki home.

There will be a gift of hula honoring Hawaii’s beloved Queen Lili uokalani. A special acknowledgement for Hawaii’s last reigning monarch, who spent much of her time right here, where she had two beautiful summer homes. It is here that she would come to retreat, relax, and reflect.

Guests will be treated to traditional hula as well as new original mele composed just for Pa’ ina Waikiki.

Shows: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Sundays | 5pm-8pm
