About Te Au Moana

Te Au Moana, which translates to “the ocean tide,” has always been a constant throughout Oceania, connecting our islands, peoples, and generations. Our Polynesian ancestors traversed these ocean tides for centuries and revered them for their life-sustaining properties. Their stories – which spoke of their expert skills in fishing, gathering, and voyaging – demonstrated the tremendous depths of knowledge and respect they had for the Earth and its elements. As Hawaii’s premier entertainment company, Tihati Productions endeavors to bring these stories to life at our incredible lūʻau, Te Au Moana: The Ocean Tide. We invite you to dine as the ocean sits peacefully before you, as it has for thousands of years. We ask you to dance under the Maui skies. The moon and stars await you, as do all the fascinating stories at Te Au Moana: The Ocean Tide, a spectacular lūʻau experience like no other!

Great Lu'au!

Great food and awesome performers. The food was some of the best we’ve had at a Luau and the performers were on point! I’m glad we decided on this one, everything was fantastic including the scenery on the beach, perfect all around!

Loved It!

It was our first luau and we loved it! Such a beautiful location and costumes. Food was amazing! Open bar with really generous mixers. Show was great and introduced well to Hawaiian culture. We loved fresh flowers lei on arrival!

A wonderful mix of food and entertainment. Our party of 11 had a great time. If you have a large party I would recommend buying preferred or arriving early so you sit together. There are 11 seats per table. Also, we arrived around 3:40 and were second in line.

We were right up front with preferred seating-well worth it! The food was delicious, especially the pork! Dancers were wonderful and seemed to be enjoying themselves also. I have been to a larger luau before that had more dancers and more activities-but this was so much better! My 12-year-old son says -awesome!’ Thanks!
