This luau show is definitely worth the price of admission! What makes this beautiful show unique among luau shows is that the dance and music performance embrace the Hawaiian culture. Although also beautiful, many luau performances at other locations embrace the Polynesian history/culture. While the food and drink at this luau is average, our server was very friendly and courteous.... More

We enjoyed the luau. The show was cool, and the setting is quite beautiful. The food was decent, but not as good as we'd expected. The kalua pig was very cool though, and we saw them taking the cooked pig out of the ground to serve it. We sat in the premium seats, which is about 15$ more then regular,... More

Absolutely stunning location at the Waldorf Astoria on the beach in Wallea, HI. Wonderful people, food, experience. They were organized. It was gorgeous and perfect really. They even came up to me mid luau and gave me a Lei as I had wanted one. I will say the pork was a little on the bland side but I truly enjoyed... More

The Luau at the Grand Wailea hotel was very entertaining. The dances were all beautiful and a pleasure to watch. Although we purchased tickets in advance we had to check in and stand in the hot sun for quite sometime before we were allowed to enter and take our seats. The food was typical luau fare and tasted pretty good.... More

Due to the popularity of the show the hotel put on an extra Luau on a Tuesday and we managed to get very good premium seats. We were told it was first come first served but seat were already allocated. We had to go early to check in and collect wristbands after which you are able to have some free... More

Check-in was really easy and yes, you check-in and come back to wait on line to get in. It's not that bad. It's a pretty hotel and you can walk around a bit. The mai tais were okay and the lines for the bar weren't long. They also had table service which was nice. There were some craft tables set... More

If you want badly organised evening at a high price with average food and a predictable show then this is for you - otherwise avoid

Great show! I felt the food could be better. The show was pretty awesome! The kids even got to learn to dance and the show didn't disappoint. They even got one member from the audience involved in one part of the fire show. The food was ok at best.

I and others of my family weren't expecting much at the Grand Luau. However we were all commenting afterward that it was much, much better than any of us anticipated. The food was very good. The lines for food were well managed and moved quickly. The show had talented male and female dancers with well choreographed routines. While the fire... More

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
