We had a wonderful evening at this Luau!!! We showed up at 4:00 pm as recommended. We walked through the gorgeous grounds to the luau site. There was a line to check in but it was manageable. After checking in we walked around the hotel and looked in the shops. This hotel is absolutely breathtaking. We were back to the... More

Went there yesterday and can't imagine why anyone on earth should give them a bad review. But: there a few things you should KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: 1. BE THERE AT 3:30 pm and wait in line to check in - if you really are at the rope at 3:30 you will belong to the first people to check in... More

It was such a great luau. The whole family which included five kids from ages 18 to 8, really enjoyed themselves. The food was good, drinks were flowing, and the entertainment was delightful.

The only problem with this luau is the check in logistically it's a mess which is clearly expressed in the many negative reviews referencing the check in process but once the show starts you forget the aggravation. TIPS You do not need to show up at the suggested 4pm check-in. We saw people show up at 4:45 and checked in... More

I attended the Grand Luau at Wailea with a group of nine. We all had such an amazing time! The Grand Wailea resort is gorgeous! The landscaping, gardens and pools are elaborately decorated and beautifully designed! One of the best parts of the Luau, which we did not realize until about 1/3 of the way in- Open bar!! The bartenders... More

Very authentic and well done both on the food, amazing traditional cooked pig, and the entertainment is first rate. The premium seating is well worth the little extra expense.

We got our pictures taken with a young Polynesian warrior to start the evening's fun, then settled in for cocktails and the brilliant sunset: it's Wailea, VERY WARM in the afternoon, which is why you are HERE, In Hawaii! And not shoveling snow in Arizona? 2015 had started with crazy weather across the mainland U.S., and you are at the... More

My large family group of 11 just returned from the Grand Wailea Luau. Unfortunately, it was a lesser evening....especially considering the price was $100 per person. The location is lovely, the bar was decent, but the buffet was less than stellar. They were running four buffets for the 5-600 people there this evening, which is a great idea as long... More

This was a really fun experience for the whole family. Lots of fun things to do for the kids and the food and drinks were good as well. We booked the premium seating and arrived early to get a front table. This was very worth it as we right in front and had a great view of the show.
