This was our first Hawaiian Luau so maybe by comparison it was okay. The first major disappointment was no flowered Leis to wear.....not enough even for sale. Sad at these prices. The best part without a doubt were the entertainers......outstanding! The open bar had nice variety but even after many drinks did not know if they really had liquor in... More

If price were half OR food better, I'd give this 8.5/10. At $100 Can a person, 7/10. Food was just ok. Was super salty for surf n turf meat, as well as all the entrees but the rice and fried fish. Nothing was delish, even the desserts. I'm no food snob. I love my MD, Opa etc, even tho I... More

There are lots of Luau experiences to choose from when visiting Maui...and over the years we've enjoyed many of them. But if you're going to go to only one in a lifetime, experience the magic of The Grand Luau at Honua'ula, located on the grounds of the Grand Wailea Hotel. We Had a great time! Our seats gave us a...

I was told in advance that there would be gluten free options, including the roast pig, and other meats. This included 3 courses. This would even be served directly to me. Great! When I got to the luau, I was given a gigantic slab of tofu, and a pile of vegetables. I guess gluten free now means vegetarian. Seeing as... More

What's not to like about this Luau? Good performances, good food, beautiful setting and friendly staff. We were sat at a table with another family and they were very nice people. The buffet was well stocked and rapidly restocked as people went through it. We bought our admission from Costco a few days before and this saved quite a bit... More

The property itself is beautiful. Our kids spent the hour we waited in line walking around the property. The luau was very nice. The food and drinks were good,... More

We booked this Luau in advance to make sure we had room for our party of nine. Unfortunately, it was raining and the resort moved the Luau inside the conference center. It really loses its effect inside. You feel like you are in a low end conference at an award diner. The entire event was transformed from what could have... More
