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

My husband and I have been to several luaus, but our children and grandchildren were with us for Christmas this year so we booked the Grand Luau for our Christmas dinner. 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

This Luau is educational and entertaining. The food is pretty good too, and the open bar is even better! It's family style seating so you likely will sit with people you've never met, but everyone was friendly. The Grand Wailea is an amazing hotel and the luau is during the sunset-a wonderful evening! Tip: If you are a Costco member,... More

This was our first luau, and we had a really great time. The venue is beautiful and the food and drinks were very good. We were staying in Kihei so it was only a $15 cab ride (including tip) in order to get to the luau (which I recommend doing with the open bar). The show was also pretty good... More

We purchased tickets to the Grand Wailea Luau, and I have to say it's one of the better organized Luau's on the island. The one in Lahaina was rumoured to be the best, but gosh, we drove by one evening and saw the longest line-up of random people from all over, and turned around to go back to our resort... More
