The atmosphere was like a high school reunion in a gym. The service was mediocre. The show lacked entertainment until the firedancer. T he stage in the ballroom was small and lightening blocked the view. Too many gaps between hulas. Sorry I thought it was going to be handled better even though it was brought inside.

Run by Grand Wailea resort, so food and service are very good. Show is good, too. Just inside of beach with beautiful views. Bar line is too long, but otherwise a worthy luau if you have not dined at a luau before.

Some of the folks in our party had never attended a luau and some of the other luaus were already booked. So, I didn't have great expectations and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was (this is my 4th or 5th luau). They do get off to a slow start. It's also a little silly that you have to... More

Horrible customer service, they are nothing but false advertisement. Show is cancelled frequently "due to weather conditions" even though the tickets clearly state "in case of inclement weather, the Luau and Show will be held indoors" We booked this Luau with the certainty that there would be a show regardless of the weather. Got to the show only to find... More

We found this Luau from Costco which sold adult tickets for $80 ($25 discount). Children under 5-12 was discounted 25% from Costco but was confusing about if we needed to purchase ticket from Costco or not. Just in case we bought one but returned the xtra one. The 25% discount for our 1 child was paid via CC by calling... More

I guess it's nice to see if this is your first time to Hawaii. My wife and 4 year old son enjoyed it. I wouldn't see it again. The food was ok, open bar was good. Buy your tickets at Costco for 24% off adults ($80). Kids 5 and under are free. Free valet parking the resort is really nice.... More

You have to go to at least 1 Luau whilst in Hawaii. We really enjoyed this one and enjoyed the food drinks and entertainment. Touristy yes - but then that is what you would expect.

Wasn't sure what to expect for our first live Luau. Being from Jersey, our only visual of a luau is from tv (Brady Bunch in Hawaii comes to mind...guess I just dated myself). The staff was very pleasant and Island friendly. The 9 act show was entertaining and informative. Love learning the history of other cultures. The food was ok,... More

This is our Third Luau on Maui. We choose this luau because it was close to our Kihei condo and the price was reasonable for a family of four. The parking situation was a bit confusing at first, we drove around trying to find the parking lot, even after asking two different people(seem like they were unsure). Eventually we pulled... More
