Smoked pork was good. That’s about it. Not with the money. Total trap. We paid for VIP and were seated in the front corner with speakers in my ear and covering the stage. So not VIP or with the hundreds spent on this.

The staff was very accommodating for our large group. Food was the best luau food we have had. The dancers and fire show was very good. The servers made sure our glasses were never empty.

Very tacky, it's a total tourist cheesiness... not an authentic setting. Super artificial... Be ready for waiting a lot... Not worth all the money you pay per ticket. I have much more to say but will not waste my time. Mad at myself for not...More

If you’re on a budget then I wouldn’t spend it on a luau. There were over 500 people there so you may end up away from the stage since seating is random. The food and drinks were decent, the wait staff did the best they...More

Not sure I would do it again. This luau was suggested by the concierge at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua. He said it was the “best” one. So we took his suggestion and booked general seating for 5 of us. (3 adults, 2-6yr olds). We were...More

We had a fantastic time at this luau. The food was really good given how many people they serve for the event. The service was great and the staff was very friendly. As for the show, it was pretty remarkable. The dancing and the fire...More

We were told that this is one of the better luaus on Maui.......really? Prices for the general seating were steep and we upped the ante by paying extra for VIP seating. Yes, it did get us right in front of the stage........other than that, no...More

Not worth $140 per person. They have you get there at 5 but the show doesn’t start until 7:30 and only lasts an hour. Most of the time was spent trying to sell you things. Food was mediocre at best.

It is close to the beach but you can not see the water when you sit at the tables. It is all open air but there is a hedge around the venue.
