We have been to 3 or 4 different luau's in Maui. This one has been the best. Traditional dancing and fire show are greatly demonstrated. The food is great and the drinks are reasonably priced. The price includes complimentary mai-tai and Blue Hawaiian drinks. The seating is just fine (and no real need to pay for "VIP" seating unless you... More

Very nice Luau. Excellent Food, Very nice show. Good drinks with bar open all evening. A few local native vendors with native made items - not chinese imports. One of the better Luau's I've been too. Would go again.

We had great seats and price by booking thru expedia activities. You are guaranteed a section to sit in but show up early to receive the best seats in that section. The food was buffet style and loved the pink/gauva rolls.The show was very entertaining and loved the fire dancers! The bar was not crowded and the drinks were good.

This luau was recommended by locals and it was the right choice for our family. We were seated easily and after a brief show opening with giving thanks to the pig we were fed buffet style under Thatch roofed structures. During the short lull before the full show began I enjoyed talking to a carver's wife about the meaning of... More

So the wait to get in was about half hour but not a problem. Yes it does matter if you are front of line as front of line seated first and closer to main stage. Food was ok at best could use a lot of improvement. Pork dry and a lot of food cold. Liked chicken, salad, sweet potato, pineapple... More

My wife, our 2 daughters, mother in law, and aunt went to enjoy a great Luau while vacationing on Maui. We had a wonderful time. I could nit pick it apart, but all in all, for the price we paid (I HIGHLY recommend you do some checking ohanafun was cheapest), which was quite inexpensive, we got a great show at... More

Loved everything about this luau and we paid a decent price on hawaiidiscount.com. The food was delicious, the drinks were great, service was perfect, and the entertainment was wonderful. Our whole family had a great time.

This luau is a authentic luau with the pig being cook in the ground with banana leaves. The food was very tasty with the exception of the poy. It just was not for me. All of your drinks both beer and mixed cocktails are included. (You do need to tip) The dancers were fabulous! This luau is a mixture of... More
