Decided to try a luau while visiting Maui. There are many shows to choose from, all within the same price range of $90-125. We picked the one offered at the grand wailea resort for a few reasons: 1) it was close to where we were staying, 2) it was in a nice setting (on a grassy area beside the hotel,... More

This was not my first luau but it was definitely the best. It is worth getting the upgraded/premium seating. We were right in front of the stage and had amazing seats for all the performances. Loved that it took place outside and beachfront. With the premium seating/price you get a flower lei instead of the typical shell lei. So if... More

I didn't know what to expect as I had heard mixed reviews about luaus. We got a great price on this one through Costco travel. The food and drinks were delicious and the setting was breath taking! The Grand Wailua is worth seeing on its own. My family, 3 teens and a 2 year old were very entertained as well... More

We bought well-priced tickets from Costco. The bad first - you had to stand around twice in the tropical sun for seating; tables are released for buffet lines, which can be a burden on families tired from standing in line. There is a two-tiered system with hotel guests and those like us who paid just for this, which meant that... More

This was a beautiful luau. I think everyone should go to at least one. It was a gorgeous day and the resort is just beautiful. There are a lot of walking paths. There is quite a distant from where you park your car until line for the luau so be ready to walk (it does appear wheelchair accessible though!) The... More

This was a great choice for a luau. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and the hotel grounds have many walking paths with lush tropical foliage and koi ponds. The luau performers are fantastic. The fire dancers are amazing. The food was delicious. They had an open bar with good liquor, not the cheap stuff! Great time for all!

Our family enjoyed the show, dinner and the open bar. Kathy our server was nice and accommodating. The only problem we ran into was finding the luau itself. The hotel needs more directional signs because the three hotel staff we asked (valet and two pool staff) didn't know where the luau grounds were. Except for this, it was a good... More

I called ahead and asked about my options for gluten and dairy free food. They said the chefs would make me a meal and serve it to me as the rest of my family got buffet food. The meal was absolutely amazing. The steak was delicious and the mousse tasted almost like it wasn't dairy free! The performance was amazing.... More

Talented singers, dancers and performers in a gorgeous setting. The show is on a large lawn adjacent to the beach. It begins at sunset and there is a delicious meal including roast pork, salads and poi. Great desserts with coconut cake as a favorite. After dark, the fire tripling and native dancing begin. Audience participation is encouraged. It's a lot... More
