So this was my first trip to Hawaii, I pre-booked the tickets ahead of the holiday and was really excited about going to a luau and let me say, nothing disappointed me. There were a few drops of rain as we sat waiting for the evening to start and I was a little concerned that the event would be moved... More

First, let's understand what you can and cannot expect at a luau. You can expect a reasonably good meal served buffet style. You can expect authentic hula and Polynesian dance. You can expect to be seated at a large table with other tourists from around the world. You should not expect a gourmet meal or outstanding table service or all... More

We have been to every island and I have to say our family of 5 agreed that was quite possibly the best luau! The location was beautiful and even though it was warm, it was positioned perfectly for the breeze. We had a very nice pic taken upon arrival. The food was phenomenal in our opinion. They even had blended... More

Went with children and grandparents. A fun evening was had by all. Food better than typical buffet fare, but still buffet. Drinks included were just ok. Show was very good and well worth it

The show was great. It had a variety of costumes and acts including crowd participation and a fire dance. You get a complimentary lei when you arrive. The pre-luau festivities were a bit rushed. Do not pay extra to sit closer. In fact, you didn't have to pay at all. You could just stand on the side. The chairs and... More

I did my research months prior to going on vacay to Maui and was still undecided once we got there. This luau was recommended by our hotel concierge and I must say it hit the nail on the head when it came to everything we were looking for in a luau. Great show, great food and even got a great...

I wasn't sure what to expect from a Hawaiian luau, as this was my first trip to Hawaii. This luau was close to the condo I was staying and figured I would give it a try. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, and the show itself was very good and informative with the host describing the... More

I was in Maui with a wedding party of 10, and we all went to this luau and had a fabulous time. It was the first luau for all of us. At the beginning, the sun was super hot and bright. But we were able to get up and walk around in the shade until the sun started to set.... More

Four college roommates enjoyed celebrating 41 years of friendship at this wonderful luau. We all appreciated the island traditions presented through song and dance. We arrived at 4:30 and received complimentary parking and the early arrival also gave us a chance to sit in the shade. Everyone of us loved the beautiful ocean view and the chance to truly relax....

If you've ever been to a Polynesian luau before they are very similar regardless of where you go: flower leis, a bit of history, presentation of the pig, the buffet, history lesson, followed by Polynesian dancing and music. This one is no exception. The food and drinks were good for a large buffet and it had plenty of selections -... More
