The entertainment was exceptional! This Luau had an incredible story teller/ nerrator that also sang beautifully. The dancers all preformed beautifully and the amazing cirque du soliel style acrobat and fire dancer were incredible.

Our family of 7 and extended family (another 7) purchased tickets at Costco online in advance - a HUGE price savings. My dad has a heart condition and it was a LONG walk from where you valet park, which we didn't expect. It's also not covered so it's hot until the sun sets. We were quickly shown our tables and...

The setting at the Walea was great. A. Equitable evening with a gorgeous sunset. The food and drinks were great. It was nice to have other meat choices. We had a great table by the stage was so great for the performances. I would rate the performances and dances some of the best I've seen. The fire guy was excellent.... More

The ticket price at Costco for this Luau is around $80 and includes the tax and will also save you 25% off the price o children's tickets. You have to call and reserve your seats. Also know that a member of your party should be there for the 4-4:30pm table assignment line-up. they let people in at 5pm but the... More

The show itself was great, kept everyone entertained, always somewhere new to look! The show was a good length of time as well (not to long). The food was good and the service was ok.

We went to the hotel directly to book and found that the adult ticket was $110 and the children's tickets were $60. Someone then advised me that Costco in Maui sells them; so we went to Costco and paid $79.99 for adult ticket and $42 for the kids' ticket. Costco only sells the adult ticket but there is a phone...

The program was great, the food not so, but still okay. Pay the few dollars extra for prime seats. We sat right up front and had a great time. Bring a jacket, though, sometimes the breeze gets cool.

Great outdoor venue and well preformed Luau Story. The open bar is included with your ticket. The food was well presented and prepared and proper temperature in the large four row buffet serving area. The food was the best tasting we have experienced at a Luau, well done! Want a great Luau experience, this is the one! Only downside, they... More

While we don't have anything to compare to -- this luau was terrific. We have a lot of food allergies, so we just assumed we would't do well with the buffet, but wanted the show/experience. On arrival, we let the staff know about our allergies, and they took care of it & brought us incredible meals, including an AMAZING banana... More

We've been to this show a few times over the years and my husband now will only go for the show even though the price includes food. The show is lovely with the traditional dancers, as well as a special surprise in the trees. I don't want to say what it is and spoil it, so if you haven't read... More
