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

Summary: The show was very good and entertaining. The food was disappointing, the drinks week, but the overall atmosphere delightful. The Good: The show was well-done. The setting right on the beach was romantic and beautiful. The Bad: The food was average at best. It was removed before you could have a second helping. The drinks were good but weak.... More

This was my least favourite thing we did on the island. We didn't have kids and I think if you had kids this might be more fun. It's pretty expensive given the quality of food and drinks. Food is not good at all but if you know that going into the night then it's not as bad. If you have... More

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...
