You’ve spent the day soaking up the sun on one of Hawaii’s famous beaches. How about soaking up some history and culture at night? Polynesian shows are an fantastic way to learn about Hawaii’s rich history and people, while enjoying lively entertainment and delicious food.

One of the most popular Polynesian shows, Te Moana Nui, has found a new home at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani in Waikiki and is set to debut there Friday, August 28th with shows on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Te Moana Nui, which means “vast ocean,” takes guests on a Polynesian journey where the history and culture of the Pacific come alive. The show brings to life stories of the Pacific Islands and her people. The vibrant dinner and stage show will allow visitors to experience the sights, sounds and traditions of Hawaii, told as never before.

The performers in Te Moana Nui weave history and culture into their dancing.

According to the Te Moana Nui website, the show features a “realm filled with exciting tales of hundreds of Pacific Islands and her people. Stories of unaparalleled beauty, fierce savagery, intoxicating fragrances, and Pacific adventures told nowhere else in the world.”

Before each Te Moana Nui show, at the Princess Kaiulani, guests can dine al fresco in a relaxing island atmosphere at Pikake Terrace, on a wide variety of selections by Chef Chris Kirksey, such as prime rib, crab legs and other island-inspired cuisine.

“Te Moana Nui is more than just a dinner and a show—it’s an experience that allows our visitors to be fully immersed in Hawaii’s distinctive culture, through cuisine, song and dance,” said Fred Orr, general manager, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani. “Many of our visitors remark to us that our history sets Hawaii apart from the rest of the world, and we thought that Te Moana Nui would be the perfect venue to share our culture.”

The hotel was home to “Creation, A Polynesian Journey,” which enjoyed a long, successful run in the Ainahau Showroom for nearly three decades.

Dinner and show cost $105 per adult and $78.75 for children ages 5 to 12. For the cocktail show, the cost is $60 per person, and $45 for children between the ages of 5 and 12. Prices include tax and gratuity.
