Being our first time to Muai, we wanted to experience a luau during our stay. We stayed at the Hyatt and it was very convenient to attend this luau on resort property. It was a great show with Hawaiian history incorporated. It seems expensive, but for an all you can eat buffet, open bar, and quality entertainment, it's really a... More

I visited this luau for the sole reason that I have been to the Old Lahaina Luau for 5 years straight and thought I wanted to see something different. The luau is fine enough, but it is so complicated to get in with so many different lines you have to go through. I much prefer the Old Lahaina where you... More

Although this may not have been the most authentic of the luau options, it was really entertaining and great for our kids as well. We had a mix-up with our reservation and they really went above and beyond to take care of us even though it was not their fault. The view was great and we all enjoyed the huge... More

This was my families 1st Luau. My family absoultely loved it. The entire Luau was great. Food and drinks were plentiful. Everyone was very nice. We sat in the preffered section and had a great view of all the performances. My two sons loved the fire dance at the end. It was a bit pricy, but we had a great... More

This was our first luau eve, so I don't have anything to compare it to. We went for the VIP seating and after the usual ores how picture, were given a flower or but lei, for females and males, for a souvenir as well as to indicate our lofty status. The next tables back all had a grass type lei,... More

The luau was really nice but the food was a huge disappointment. I expected a lot more for the money we spent.

Food was OK, the drinks were free and kept coming even the budget quality alcohol ones. The entertainment was really good. All those on stage really seem to be into it. The band and dancers were all flawless. I know they probably have done it countless times but they didn't seem to show it. The emcee was kinda cheesy but... More

We stayed up the road at the Ritz in Kapalua for our honeymoon. The concierge recommended the Hyatt Luau as the best in the area. He convinced us to go with the preferred seating which is in the middle. We paid $145 however, which I now see on their website is for the VIP section. So I'm not sure if... More

It's a Polynesian dinner show like you find at Disney World, not a luau. If you go with that in mind, you probably won't be disappointed. The food was decent, not great, but not bad. (actually Disney's Polynesian dinner show has better food). The entertainment was good. Although you can't see the beach from where you are sitting you can... More
