This show is incredible from start to finish! The music, dancing, singing, and theatrics are unparalleled and what you would expect to see at a 5 star hotel in Las Vegas! In addition to enjoying an excellent musical you will also learn the history of Maui from the time that navigators from Tahiti arrived up through today's efforts at reclaiming much of the history and culture of 2,000 years. My favorite part was the unbelievable performance by the gymnastic dancer in the waterfall and moon scenes. There isn't a bad seat in the house including the cheapest seats so don't spend the extra $ to sit upfront so that's not necessary. You can even see better the higher up you go.

The show Ulalena tells the story of Hawaiian people and where they come from, truly amazing. It was so beautiful to watch their dancing, acting, music and singing. It was happy, and funny but sad and dark at parts, it was such a spectacular show. We did the VIP seats and meet and greet package, pretty cool, you get great seats and it's really interesting to meet some of the cast and to ask them questions.

Would definitely recommend going!!

Great historical musical of Hawaii.
Fantastic dancing and music. The musicians are unbelievable. The whole family (including teens) enjoyed the show. One tip: if you get a chance they have discount cards at Costco 30% savings and you can also add a dinner to the package Lehina grill or Ruth Chris at a great price (especially by paying with the Ulalena cards from Costco)

This live performance was recommended by our concierge and she was right on. The performers are first rate, all of the music is live and the story well presented. The players interaction with the audience and the fact that some of the performance takes place within the seating area add to the experience. Make sure you stay afterward as the cast interact with the audience and answer questions. The show can be combined with a pre-performance dinner for which we chose Koa's. The pleasant dining area extends out over the surf and the food was great. With or without dinner, Ulalena is a "must see" attraction.

A nice alternative to a luau for an evening of Hawaiian cultural entertainment. We took our kids, ages 10 and 15, and they both enjoyed the show as well. Great music, some impressive singing, impressive theatrics and acrobatics a la scaled down Disney's Lion King musical and Cirque de Soleil. Save yourself some money and buy Standard Seating seats. They are are the top of the theater along the side, but it's a small theater and we had no trouble seeing. Even better is if you are seated along the right-hand side of the theater (facing the stage) is that you can take in the musicians at work along the side balcony.
