Exceeded our expectations...we were looking for authenticity, personalized service and a little history. The buffet had so many options, it was easy to find something to eat if you were not into the traditional luau fare. We were serviced at our table before and after the main course, and never once waited in line for drinks. The dancers were amazing... More

This was a great experience! It is expensive but worth it. The drinks were unlimited...my favorite was the lava flow. The food was amazing! Plan to go through the line twice or fill your plate high. Try as much as you can there are a lot of foods that I had never tried before and enjoyed it all! The dessert... More

This luau was very nice. We had our own table and food was brought to us as well as delicious drinks. The food was unique and I did not care for some of it as it was unusual,but the others I was with thought it was amazing. It was easy to find something in each course to eat. The dancers... More

This luau location is much smaller than the Polynesian cultural center one on Oahu. However, they offer more personalized service and the staff are really friendly. The buffet offers a lot of options and food is quite decent though a bit salty overall.

We were very impressed with the organization of this event. Absolutely beautiful show and the sunset couldn't have been more beautiful. But I must say that the food could be a lot better. I lacked flavor and the lines for drinks take so long that we only had two drinks.

We made day-of reservations (lucky for us there was a last minute cancellation) and sat in the back row table/chairs and had a wonderful time. The table seat a max of 8 so we just had 1 other family of 4 with us. Be sure to get there on time (545pm) to enjoy the pre-show activities with your kids and... More

They put on such an amazing show! They tell the history of the islands. The performers are amazing and the food is fantastic! before the show begins you can walk around and see different island traditions and you can watch the pig being taken out of the pit. The food is just amazing. Call ahead of time and ask for... More

We were in Maui for our daughters wedding and wanted something extra for us and the small wedding party. For a $100 each person you get a virgin Mai Tai or a alcohol one upon arrival. The wait staff explains the Open Bar and the great Hawaiian food in the buffet. The grounds a beautifully landscaped with different Hawaiian cultural... More

It was a great evening. Located right behind the Lahaina Cannery Mall (which has a Safeway and Long's Drugstore). The highlight is the show. The dancers were beautiful and you can tell that they truly enjoy what they do....heart and soul into the performances. We made reservations a few months on-line prior to our arrival so we (two of us)... More
