If you're fortunate enough to be in Maui, as my wife and I were, you have to do this Luau! There's heaps out there but this had the distinct difference in the that it presented all of Polynesian culture, from Hawaii, Tonga to even the Haka of New Zealand (which was the highlight). The food was spot on and had... More

It had rained that night and should have been canceled but instead was held inside. It was more like attending a wedding or theatre show than being at a Lu'au. At the end, we all had to go outside for a 5 minute fire show. People were really mad because not everyone could see - especially if you are short.... More

I find it interesting that most of the 5 star ratings are from people who have only 1 review and it happens to be this place.... OUTRAGEOUS! 3 hours I'll never get back. Drinks - Awful and watered down. Wine was undrinkable. Food - Worst than bad. The fish was so dry it was like a sponge sucking up any... More

A very rich and entertaining performance of Historic Polynesian Folklore set to song, dance and music presented with the delicious, traditional, Hawaiian Luau cuisine. Constant entertainment, beautiful costumes (and the dancers wearing them too), enthusiastic, pulse pounding drums and spectacular and daring fire dancers. Truly a fantastic luau and our waiter, Joe, was very attentive and welcoming, we felt right... More

I went to the Lu'au with my family while vacationing in Maui and I have to say it was the highlight of my vacation! There is always to be expected a great performance of native Hawaiian dances, but what surprised me most was they rich history that was told about the islands and the dances themselves. The food was fantastic... More

We had our rehearsal dinner for about 30-40 guests at the Drums of the Pacific Luau and it is one of my favorite memories of our wedding week! With their recently renovated grounds, there is a raised section in the back that provides a great spot for large parties with a great view even though you're in the back. It... More

While vacationing in Maui we signed up for the Lu'au because of course that's expected when visiting. I expected to be entertained but was really surprised and delighted at the depth and background history given as the story unfolded. The service was impeccable , the food delicious and the desserts scrumptious! I highly recommend this l experience!
