Don’t waste your money

Have been to many luaus in Hawaii; this one was average at best and not worth the money. We found the entertainment somewhat limited; food was good but when the main course was delivered it was luke warm. Service was OK but not great.

Great fire acrbats and traditional Hawaiian dances

Fir a change the beef we had wasn’t bad for the first time else Hawaiian beef seems to be much more chewy rubbery
Chicken and Mahi Mahi were great
Deserts were really good too
Overall a memorable experience

First luau so I don't have anything to compare to, but the experience was truly amazing! Open bar, shell leis, so much food (served family style), learn to hula and amazing show! All of this at a gorgeous Waldorf resort with the gorgeous ocean and sunset in the background. An experience I will never forget!

Great Experience!
Dec 2019 • Family
We went to the Luau in December 23rd and had a great experience! In total there were 16 of us ranging in age from 80 to 4 years old. We all bought our tickets in Costco, 11 from the Canadian site and 5 from the US site. Making the reservation for all 16 people was not a problem at all despite all the confirmation codes. You have to call and book, you cannot enter the codes online. The person I spoke to was efficient and got us all booked very quickly.

We got to the resort an hour early and the Luau staff there was quick and efficient and we were able to secure our tables (3rd row) quickly and wander the hotel grounds.

The entertainment was great and the food was fantastic! I’ve been to both the Old Lahaina Luau and The Feast at Lele. The food here was better then the feast at Lele by far. There is less history and more entertainment value in the show here, but we didn’t care because we had to keep 5 teenagers, a 7 year old and 4 year old’s attention! The Hula lesson on stage was a great touch!

Overcrowded!
Dec 2019
Attended New Years Eve luau and found it very overcrowded. Not worth the money at all to be sitting with hordes of people, and trying to watch a luau with 700+ people! It’s obvious the hotel cares about quantity of people versus quality of the experience!

Great value and the best Luau if you are in Kihei or staying in the South
Dec 2019 • Family
Bought our tickets at Costco and were very happy with everything. Did not have the VIP seating and still had a great table. Food and show were both fantastic, lovely setting, great grounds. Family of four, with teenagers all had a great time. Highly recommended going, especially if you are in Kihei or Wailea

Worth the Visit.
Dec 2019
We were visiting Hawaii for the first time and my Wife wanted to go to a Luau. This was at a really beautiful venue. The staff were very nice and after getting seated and drinks we were able to see an absolutely beautiful sunset.

The band was excellent, with songs from Hawaii as well as others. When we got to go up to the buffet tables I was somewhat disappointed in the food. It reminded me of a typical hotel buffet for the holidays or a convention. Nothing was really bad, but nothing was that great either.

The show however was first class. Great singing, dancing and twirling of flaming items. We all enjoyed the show and it made for a fun and entertaining evening.

Highly recommended

We arrived late at 6:00. No problem. Got a back table but the view was still good of the stage. In December the weather is comfortable. I chose a Mai Tau and Pina Colada. Other drink options were available. All good. The food was really good and the service also was very good. Plenty of it! Large grounds at the gorgeous Waldorf Historia. And fantastic sunset!. Some local vendors selling neat stuff. The dancers and musicians and MC was all professional. Don't miss the final fire dance! WOW!

Best Luau on Maui
Dec 2019 • Family
From start to finish loved it all! The food was delicious, the drinks tasted great and we never ending, the dancers were delightful to watch and extremely engaging. We brought to kids and they enjoyed every minute especially getting on stage to join in the hula fun. I loved the dancer on silks in the trees. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying on the island especially if you are at the hotel. Best suggestion get their before 4 if you have standard seating and you will get a great table and can come back with the rest of your party after 5 to be seated with minimal wait time. 5 stars from me for this event!

Honest review from a young couple
Nov 2019 • Couples
Here is our honest review.

After paying a lot of money you check in and are told to wait in line in the sweating heat for 30 minutes (you want to come early so you get good seats) if you didn’t pay the extra money for vip. Which you already paid a lot and makes you feel inferior. They try to sell you more after you already paid so much.

Once you get in the service is nice and the people are great. The food and drinks were great and if you are lucky the people at your table will be fun and friendly. The show was not worth the hype as there was an hour of dancing and not much explanation of Hawaiian culture.

Overall the experice was a 2/5 star as the food and service was good but the show and the part where you feel inferior is not a pleasant feeling.

Don’t waste your money As there are many better luaus.
It's only good if you are staying here so you can just go back to your room.

Hope this helps and make sure to book well in advance as the not so great luaus are the only ones available to book last minute.
