Overview

At Wailele Polynesian Luau dinner show, guests will embark on an exciting journey to the Polynesian Islands where dance was considered not just as a form of entertainment, but as a means of telling stories. Recognized for providing an award-winning experience, the luau is held oceanfront at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa and features dances and songs from old and modern Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand (Maori), Tonga and Samoa. Highlights include the story of Pele (Goddess of Fire), Hi'ilave Hula Awana dedicated to Wailele (meaning waterfalls) and Maui's most extreme fire knife dance finale called "Siva Afi". The unforgettable evening of fun, culture and entertainment is complemented by a traditional dinner served buffer style and selection of beverages.

The Luau at the Westin was a fantastic show to see. The food was good and the dancers and the Luau was something you would not want to miss.

We saw the Wailele Polynesian Luau last year and thought it was just ok. Then we had a chance to see it again this year, and I must say, the improvements they made to this Luau has bumped it up to our favorite one on...More

I’m sure every luau on Maui is tired of being compared to the Old Lahaina Luau, but it’s unavoidable. Waiele was nice and had really great performers, but it is distant “also ran” to Old Lahaina. What makes this less than spectacular is that there’s...More

The tables are round. The problem is that some are far away from the performers and have obstructed views.
