The Polynesian Cultural Center offers a rich variety of venues that are available for group meetings and functions — all serviced by our outstanding staff who come from throughout the Pacific Basin and exemplify true aloha spirit. Your event at the PCC will be the one everyone remembers long after returning from Hawai'i.

Hale Aloha

The PCC’s beautifully landscaped Hale Aloha or “House of Love” dinner theater — home of our award-winning Alii Luau — is our unforgettably spectacular Polynesian setting where groups of up to 650 people can enjoy meetings topped off by a deliciously exotic luau feast — or buffets customized to your desires. This lovely amphitheater-style venue on the Center’s freshwater lagoon also features its own stage for speakers or entertainment, waterfalls, palm trees, four buffet stations, an imu [Hawaiian oven] pit, terraced seating and concrete flooring.

Hale Ohana

The Hale Ohana also features award-winning landscaping, a waterfall, its own stage, two buffet stations, two drink stations, one entrance, and concrete flooring.

Gateway Restaurant

The Gateway features:

  • 24,500 square feet of space, designed so the tables can be easily removed and other functions put on inside.
  • “All 38 interior columns are fashioned after giant koa logs. In fact, everything in this building has been designed as if it were carved by hand,” Grace said.
  • Each of the doors are 12 feet tall, six feet wide, weigh 1,100 pounds, and feature ‘ulu or breadfruit and taro motifs, “both of which have sustained the Polynesians over the centuries.”
  • A 500-plus-foot mural encircles the upper interior, and includes segments of Hawaiian chief’s welcoming guests as well as the Polynesian people represented at the PCC and Hawaii’s multi-ethnic people. “With a total of over 5,000 square feet, it’s one of the largest murals in the world,” Grace said.
  • A replica of a 2,000-year-old “holy bronze kettle” representing the ancient China Kingdom of Dian and sent to the Polynesian Cultural Center by the Yunnan Nationalities Villages of Kunming, Yunnan, China, is on display near the southern door of the Gateway.
  • The food stations are set against the mauka wall for non-disruptive replenishment.
  • The dining tables feature inlaid tapa cloth.
  • The air circulation system can totally refresh all of the air within the building every three minutes.

Pacific Theater

The 2,700-seat Pacific Theater is the home of the Polynesian Cultural Center’s world-famous evening show, but it’s available during the daytime for all kinds of large gatherings, performances and presentations. This dramatic, covered amphitheater features lush tropical landscaping, waterfalls, terraced seating, a concrete floor, wide stage, dressing and staging areas, a spectacular mountain backdrop and even volcanoes. There are two main entries to the Pacific Theater area, and six portals into the theater, which is handicapped accessible.
