The Polynesian Cultural Center will reopen on Jan. 18 following a nearly 10-month closure due to Covid-19, the center announced this week.

It will reopen with limited hours and new Covid-related health and safety guidelines.

“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, in a statement. “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.”

The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of Hawaii’s major visitor attractions. In 2019 they brought in over 1.2 million customers. About 90% of them being visitors from outside the islands.

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 “HA: Breath of Life.”
