The Polynesian Cultural Center Ready to Welcome Back Guests Safely

Posted in: Culture & History, Things to Do

With a brand-new year comes new beginnings and, at long last, a time to welcome our guests back safely to our One Place Like No Other.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is looking forward to opening its doors to visitors again beginning January 18, while fully implementing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) health guidelines for the safety of both its employees and guests. During this initial reopening phase, the Center will be open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday from 4 p.m. The Center’s adjoining Hukilau Marketplace will be open from noon through 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  

The Polynesian Cultural Center will reopen committed to carrying out regular sanitization of all highly touched areas, commonly used spaces and other surfaces throughout all of its facilities and public areas. Self-use sanitizing stations will also be made available throughout the Center for guests to use.

“As we take this first step in the process of fully reopening the Polynesian Cultural Center, the health and well-being of our guests, employee ‘ohana and our local community will always be our top priority,” said Alfred Grace, Polynesian Cultural Center president. “It’s why we are asking all of our visitors to follow CDC guidelines upon arrival, including the wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distance while at the Center.” 

Added Grace, “We are extremely excited to begin welcoming back our guests to the Polynesian Cultural Center after being closed since the beginning of the pandemic. We’re also very much looking forward to again serving our local community and visitors as we, along with other attractions statewide, reopen our doors.”

During the Center’s initial weeks of reopening, interactive guest experiences with its employee ‘ohana will be limited, though still fun and definitely memorable. These activities will include visits to the Center’s Samoan Village, an extended format of the Center’s new “Ali‘i Lū‘au featuring ‘Onipa‘a, A Tribute to Queen Lili‘uokalani,” a new canoe excursion exploring the Center’s lagoon and villages, and the Center’s award-winning evening show “HĀ: Breath of Life.”
