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.

It's not quick or easy to get to by city bus, so we took an overpriced cruise-line tour because we'd heard such good things about the PCC. And we loved it, the exhibits, the performances and, most of all, the gentle, friendly people who staff...More

We spent the afternoon and evening here. My husband loved it, and says it's worth a five star review. I, on the other hand, found it a little boring after a while. This was exacerbated by our lack of planning (so we missed many of...More

We chose the package with a tour guide and the Island Buffet. There is just so much to see and do that you cannot see it all in one day. So best to get a tour guide and glad we did. We visited about four...More

The PCC is a charming, informational, well-thought out experience. The performers are excellent and very humorous and we learned a lot about the various Polynesian cultures. The Pounders restaurant had really good food, and service. The one off-putting feature--the free trolley tour. Beware of this...More

Excellent tour with a lot of activities to watch. Our guide was excellent, very friendly and informative. The activities continued until at night but worth staying late.

The show is awesome! It's bright and musical (like a Broadway / Disney type production) so you will not be noticed if you have to exit and re-enter. It's all casual. Highly recommend. They do not allow photos or video during... More
