“The most extreme Fire-Knife performance on Maui!”The exhilarating Wailele Polynesian Luau has been designed to bring traditional and authentic dances, songs and colorful costumes to visitors of this beautiful island, Maui. Here, guests will embark on a vibrant and exciting journey to the Polynesian Islands where dance was considered a form of vivacious entertainment and as a means of telling stories. Located at the Westin Maui Resort and Spa among lush tropical greenery and flowing waterfalls, the breathtaking sunset forms the perfect backdrop for an evening of entertainment and a delicious Hawaiian meal. The full show is complemented by a four course meal presented family style to each table, just like in the olden days. An open bar offers a free flow of drinks including a signature Mai Tai and other tropical drinks, wines, locally brewed beers, sodas and fruit juices. Local crafters offer interactive arts and culture for guests to enjoy including a poi ball demonstration, tiki carving, hand made jewelry and henna tattoo. The show itself boasts Fijian and Maori Chief choreographed dances from Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand and Samoa. The evening concludes with the most extreme fire knife performance on Maui, featuring 5 native dancers led by Chief Tavita, a third generation fire knife dancer. It is a breath taking evening that is truly a magical moment in paradise!

We have been to Maui and Hawaii before but never went to a Luau. This one is at the Westin Hotel and we had a wonderful time. The show was great and the host was really funny. The food was really good!! and the drinks were flowing! He got regular seating and had a good view even though the house... More

As another reviewer pointed out, this luau is not worth the entry fee unless you plan on drinking heavily. The dancers were good and the fire show after dark was of course the highlight (in fact one of the dancers caught his shorts on fire during the show ... interesting to watch). The food was just OK. In particular we... More

Traveling with a 21 month old who loves to be wild, sing & dance-this is the spot. She loved the show & kept herself right at the edge of the stage the whole time! We loved the food, service show & drinks. It was such an enjoyable evening I'd definitely do it on my next trip. We did the old... More

Very disappointed in the changes this laua has made. First of all don’t waste the extra 25$ per person on premium seating. You basically get to come in 10-15 minutes earlier to have a house made drink. So an extra 100$ for four for 4 well drinks in plastic cups. We were here 4 years ago at Christmas and loved... More

We went to this luau with our kids. They loved it. There was a wide variety of food, deserts and drinks. They had fun drinks for the kids. Our waitress made sure we always had a drink in our hand. They took pictures of our family. They also had local vendors set-up. I was able to purchase handmade jewelry and... More

We had priority seating but we're one table back from the back and had a poor view. We too went New Years eve and given the previous review it was obvious we had a bad view as I missed half of what they saw. We did not get priority for meals and actually was pushed around by people trying to... More

We have been to several luaus during our many trips to Hawaii. We tried to get into Old Lahaina for New Years Eve but it was sold out, so our hotel recommended this one. If you pay the premium to sit up front, then you'll be ok but if not it is really hard to see anything the way they... More
