WAIMĀNALO (November, 2023) — Mele Kalikimaka from O‘ahu’s most scenic lūau, as Sea Life Park Hawaiʻi announces the first-ever holiday-themed production of its highly rated ALOHA KAI LŪ‘AU. Guests can take in the spirit of the season and aloha with five holiday hulas, festive costumes and songs including performances to “Mele Kalikimaka,” “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland” and other holiday songs, photo opportunities with Santa and much more in a dazzling presentation from award-winning Malu Productions.

Offering a fanciful journey through the ocean connecting the people of Polynesia, the popular show will now include a Christmas twist on the traditional Hawaiian luau as Aloha Kai transforms into a tropical holiday celebration from December 1 through December 31, 2023.


“The holidays remind us that one of the best gifts is being able to spend time with family and friends, and there is no better way to enjoy delicious food and great company than a traditional Hawaiian lūau,” said Valerie King, General Manager Sea Life Park Hawaiʻi. “While Aloha Kai is an unforgettable experience all year round, our first holiday show is sure to be particularly magical and offer the perfect December destination for our visitors and kamaʻāina alike.”

Overlooking the ocean and tucked beneath the Ko’olau Mountains, Sea Life Park’s sweeping Makapu’u Meadows will be decked with holiday cheer. The season has a whole new spirit as guests at the Aloha Kai Lūau enjoy a unique twist with holiday flair. New for the season, visitors can enjoy meet and greets with Santa and seven authentic island cultural activities like coconut leaf weaving, kupe‘e making (wrist and ankle lei) and ukulele lessons, all while they indulge in 'ono Hawaiian food with a beautiful buffet dinner. From fire knife champions to graceful hula, the stage is set for an enchanted evening for the whole ‘Ohana.

The 2023 Aloha Kai Holiday Lūau will offer a variety of packages including an all-new VIP experience priced at $230 per adult. Guests will get an exclusive seating location, close to the action, a free welcome drink, two drink tickets, a free set of souvenir photographs, complementary parking and a 10-day admission ticket to Sea Life Park Hawaiʻi.
