Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Prepares to Unveil Te Moana Nui Dinner Show

August 26, 2015

When the curtain is raised on Friday, August 28, the Te Moana Nui Polynesian show at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani will feature enhanced costumes and choreography, even a customized number for the hotel – a tribute to Princess Kaiulani, as well as an upgraded dinner buffet at Pikake Terrace.


The hotel has renewed its partnership with Hawaii’s premier entertainment company, Tihati Productions, to bring back a signature Polynesian show to the hotel.

Te Moana Nui, which is scheduled to be in the Ainahau Showroom on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays, takes guests on a Polynesian journey where the history and culture of the Pacific come alive.

Te Moana Nui brings to life stories of the Pacific Islands and her people. The dinner and stage show will allow visitors to experience the sights, sounds and traditions of Hawaii, told as never before.


Complementing Tihati’s modernizations to the show, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Chef Chris Kirksey is introducing a new menu at Pikake Terrace on August 28.

The upgraded buffet begins with an assortment of chilled items such as sushi rolls, ahi poke, lomi lomi salmon, ginger and shoyu-marinated tofu, peel ‘n eat shrimp, a salad bar with a variety of toppings, and tropical fruits.


Hot items include rosemary salt crusted prime rib with au jus and horseradish, steamed crab legs, huli huli chicken, kalua pork, seared Korean-style beef, grilled mahi mahi, vegetables, Okinawan sweet potato and steamed rice.




Dessert selections include tropical fruits with haupia, coconut mousse with macadamia nuts, passion fruit cake, chocolate banana bread pudding and a build-your-own sundae bar.

“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,” a Tihati-produced show which enjoyed a long, successful run in the Ainahau Showroom for nearly three decades.

“It feels like a homecoming for all of us at Tiahti Productions,” said Afatia Thompson, president, Tihati Productions.

“Our ohana feels very at home at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani and the Ainahau Showroom and we look forward to telling the great stories of our islands in a place we call home.”

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.
