Alii Luau, enhanced menu, new entertainment

Our Alii Luau will feature our new production of Onipaa, a musical presentation honoring Queen Liliuokalani, the last reigning royalty of Hawaii, who was a talented poet and song writer. More importantly, she was a beloved leader who inspired her people to be steadfast.

Our luau buffet will be serving their popular imu smoked pig, along with a number of traditional Polynesian dishes and American and Asian favorites inside a beautiful covered facility with tropical plants, calm lagoon and fragrant flowers.
