Oahu Luaus – Polynesian Cultural Centern

With so many Oahu luau options to consider, you might need a little help figuring out which is the best option for you and your party. Each luau is unique in its own right and offers something that is a little bit different, offering its own flare and fun that sets it apart. One of the luaus that truly sets itself apart is the Polynesian Cultural Center luau, one of the most complete luaus in Hawaii, providing an entire experience that offers incredible insight into the culture of the Hawaiian Islands.

Located on Oahu’s North Shore in the town of La’ie, the Polynesian Cultural Center is more than just a luau, it’s an entire park that is dedicated to the culture of the Polynesian Islands. Visitors to the park are able to enjoy an entire day immersed in culture, activities, cuisine, and island life, learning the history of the islands while taking part in activities of each island. During a day at the center, you’ll walk from island village to island village, spending time at each and learning all about the unique customs and culture that was brought to Hawaii many years ago.

Throughout the day, visitors take part in fun activities and watch impressive demonstrations, making this a fun day for all ages. The traditions of the islands have long made Hawaii special, and seeing where they originated really brings everything full circle. From New Zealand to Samoa, these traditions and customs are a way of life and date back to ancient Hawaii. Keeping them alive is vital to the islands preservation of culture, and the Polynesian Cultural Center does a superb job of sharing the importance of the past.

Once the luau starts, you are in for a real treat. Polynesian Cultural Center does a luau just a little bit differently, and the experience is one of the most impressive. A luau has to include an all you can eat buffet and the Polynesian Cultural Center buffet is one that is consistently recognized for its variety, authenticity, and taste. The food is very well done and offers plenty to eat for everyone. Once you’ve eaten, the show starts, and this is where the center shines.

Telling the story of the Mana, the show is “Ha: Breath of Life” and is a compelling saga of birth, death, love, and family, featuring over 100 performers and sharing the story through music, dance, and thrilling fire knife performances that will have you on the edge of your seat. This show has it all and a day and night spent at the Polynesian Cultural Center will be a day well spent during your trip.
