The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited destinations in Hawaii! Our beautiful 42 acre park, which sits along the northeast edge of Oahu, features six distinct Polynesian villages, Hawaii, Aotearoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and Samoa. We offer numerous dining options including daily luaus which provides a delicious island themed buffet and lively entertainment. Our award winning evening show, Ha: Breath of Life features over 100 Polynesian performers, presenting a stirring tale of love, adventure, life and death and featuring championship level fireknife dancers and jaw dropping special effects. We also provide a variety of shops and kiosks offering everything from aloha inspired clothing to quality ukuleles, and island souvenirs to fine jewelry.

Authentic Aloha Polynesian experience, great lu’au, beautifully manicured grounds, friendly staff and colourful entertainers, and fun for anyone who can appreciate history, culture, music, dance, and fine arts. It is definitely not surprising to see how the vast majority of reviewers give it top marks...More

My daughter, 2 grandchildren and I went for the luau and show. The luau had a good show with dancers and music and the food was surprisingly good. The performance of Hai was very good and professionally staged and choreographed.

We did not do a guided tour. Just make sure you pick a map at the information booth and ask the person there to give the various shows schedules. From there you can figure out the order you want to visit each village/country.
