Relaxing and Very Well Run

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.

First, the three piece band was great. Smooth sound and great singing from pre-dinner through the whole show. If this band sold a CD or had it to download on iTunes, I would buy it. They're that good! Instruction/lessons on the roasting of the pig and hula dancing was cool. Dinner was good. The luau show itself was entertaining and... More

Didn't know what to expect however after the food and show I was really impressed. The buffet was filling and tasted great. The food presentation was outstanding. All the desserts were delicious. The show came after and I must say the performances were breathtaking. The interaction with the audience was a nice touch too. The surroundings was beautiful and had... More

What a beautiful setting! The grounds of the Grand Wailea are just stunning! Yes you do need to get there ealy to check in but then you can go and walk around and enjoy the beauty of the hotel or the beaches (got to see sea turtles swimming around in the water). Really not that big of a deal to... More

If you have children the VIP seating (up front) is worth the extra cost. They will be able to see better what's going on on stage. It is also worth getting there early to get your choice of tables. I was there at a little after 3, was first in line, but the line quickly started to form right after... More

We decided to attend this luau while we were staying in Kihei. We got discount tickets at Costco to save some money. The "process" of getting a table number and then lining up to wait for the gates to open was a little off-putting, but I guess they have to do crowd control somehow? The food was pretty good considering... More
