An Authentic Hawaii Show at the Royal Hawaiian
When in Hawaii it’s not difficult to find a Luau to attend, there is food, dance – an evening of Polynesian entertainment. Royal Hawaiian Hotel – where, many years ago, I was hired to work in the gift shop because I wore shoes to the interview – is doing something different.
They have changed the name of their Luau to Royal’s Aha Aina: feasts of food, song and hula. They want to tell the Hawaiian story and focus on their culture. They go from King Kamehameha’s 18th century warriors to a swinging, World War 11 dance routine.
Imagine an evening of craft stations, storytelling, a full-service four-course meal as you lookout at Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head.
The Royal Hawaiian has completed a $110 million renovation of the property…a good time to visit.
