The Feast at Lele: A Luxury Maui Luau

The Feast at Lele takes a luau to a new level. Instead of standing in line at a buffet, you are served 4 different courses representing 4 different cultures with dances reflecting those cultures. Good food, great performers, great service. The portions are not stingy - there was plenty of food.

Wife, daughter, son-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed our experiences at the Feast of Lele. The meals (and the mini-shows that accompanied each one) represent four polynesian cultures, including Hawaii. Each meal includes a sampler of foods from each culture, although our two servers explained that we could get 'seconds' if we desired - which we did a few times. What a culinary adventure - so many different foods, tastes, textures, and colors! There was something tasty in each meal for each of us - a pretty amazing result in our family.

The mini-shows (10+ minutes each) were colorful, very well done and enjoyable. The players were clearly having a great time, and providing one as well.

Service was close to impeccable. Each party has its own table. Each table has two servers, shared with other tables. For us, eye contact with either one of our servers brought an immediate and friendly response. Mixed drinks/beer flowed freely; the Feast also had a zinfandel that kept us happy all evening!

Did I mention that we really liked this experience? We did! Tho' it is not a luau, the Feast at Lele (which we learned is the Hawaiian name for Lahaina) was a hugely positive find for us. Hope it is for you, too!

Mom, sis, wife and I went to the Feast At Lele off the Pride of America cruise on 2/10, first night in Maui. Rented a mini van(there were 6 family members on the cruise 2 chose not to go) and took the drive. Left Kahului about 4:15 and arrived early, thought they checked in at 5:30pm, but during the Winter check-in is at 6pm. Had time to check some Front Street shops and got a few deals there. Ushered in by enthusiastic staff and handed drinks right away. Not watered down, very tasty beverages right off and throughout the entire evening. Randy was our server and was there when we needed him and not intruding when we did not.Made some great drink suggestions as well. It is a full evening as you travel from island culture to island culture and a corresponding meal for each. Kalua pork was our favorite. Moist and very flavorful. No problem with not seeing them unearth the pig. This was not the "traditional" luau per se. The hostess was beautiful and her voice a calming narration, while the sun was setting made for a beautiful evening. Our least favorite was the spearfish, could have used more mango salsa. The dancers were very enthusiastic and performed well. The fire spinning Chief finale was the way to finish the show. I drove slowly back to the port with fond memories, a full belly and enough booze to drive safely and comfortably back.Unfortunately we did miss the Polynesian night at the ship, but the food and the show we would not trade in for a minute. We were never rushed and the food came out at a pace where we could enjoy all that was offered.

I've been to luau's before but this was AMAZING! The food, the service and the entertainment was far more than I could have ever anticipated! The dancers brought tears of joy to my Grandparents eyes, we all (7 of us) enjoyed this so so much!

Most luaus are cattle calls where you eat at buffets and there are tons of people. The great thing about the Feast at Lele is that it is a sit-down affair with wait staff bringing you the various courses which are tied to the theme of each section of the luau. THe food is nice, you get to try varying types of Hawaiian and other Polynesian dishes. The venue is literally right on the beach so you get to watch the sun go down while sipping mai tais or your drink of choice. My 4-year son LOVED the show. He still talks about the Fire dance 6 months later!
