As Lu’aus go.... this was a good night out.

Yes it was big (about 500 people) but the setting was good, the numbers were well managed and both... read more

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the Drums of the Pacific Lu'au. The food is served buffet style. They offer a nice selection of local dishes (Kalua pork, poi, poke, and taro leaf w/ coconut milk) as well as "general" options like green salad, pasta salad, seasonal veggies, etc. The dessert bar also featured local ingredients, including macadamia nuts, coconut, and pineapple. There is an open bar, and each table is assigned a server.

I thought the show was spectacular, demonstrating how the native people told stories through dance and body movements. Everything was well choreographed and flowed smoothly. My favorite part was by far the fire dancers. It was simply awe-inspiring. There were also segments that invited audience members to go on stage and learn dances, which I thought was cool.

While we reserved preferred seating, I don't think there was a bad seat. Those in the far back were elevated, allowing an unobstructed view. Also, I recommend taking a sweater, as the location is right off the beach and it gets quite cool as the night progresses.

Four of us went to the show tonight. And it was great. The MC named Paul was a great story teller and had a good Hawaii 1970 vibe. He really made the show enjoyable. The girls were amazing with their hips going a 100 Miles an hour wow. And the guys did an amazing job with the fire sequence. Now we have become food snobs or as we like to be called foodies. The food was fresh and they had so many selections. This is a must go. You can not go to Maui and no immerse yourself in the culture and the history of the island people.

The location for the Luau at the Hyatt is right beside the beach (although you can not see the beach once seated due to a large wall), in a courtyard type arrangement. When you arrive you stand in a long line for quite some (If you bought the general seating) time until they allow you to start entering.
There are decent drinks for adults, and watery juice for the kids. The seating is well organized so there really is no bad seat in the house.
The food was amazing. This is by far the very best part of the Luau. The chef is amazing and all the choices were fresh and well prepared and tasty.
The entertainment was ok. The dancers performed well but it all seemed pretty much the same and the MC had a commercial feel - like you would find on a cruise ship. Asking the crowd to cheer when he called out where they were from, and taking a lot of time to go over any celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries, honeymoons etc.. and having the people stand up in a generic way.
We were there on Christmas Day hoping for a very special Hawaiian Christmas, but it was not even mentioned that it was Christmas and was treated like any other day.
Go for the food, but there is better entertainment elsewhere on Maui.

Big disappointment. We felt it was tacky and commercialized. Didn't feel authentic at all. Food was OK. Definitely not worth the hundreds of dollars spent on it. We paid extra for the New Year's Eve show. We were seated by the kitchen and near the joke of a kids buffet. The kitchen was noisy and we did not have a great view at all. Our waitress was great and the drinks just kept coming (if that's what you're into) The dancers were talented but the whole show lacked something. Well, actually we didn't stay for the whole show. We drove back to Kihei in time to watch all the fireworks across the bay at the lookout point. Honestly...SAVE YOUR MONEY and do something else on the island. On the plus side the Hyatt Hotel was cool to walk through, but you can do that for free!

The venue for this fabulous luau was breathtaking! We sat outside under the stars right next to the beach at the Hyatt. We were there on Christmas Day and the food was wonderful and they had a wide variety to pick from. They even made chicken tenders for our son. It featured an open bar and the entertainment was good as well! Would recommend this luau in Maui!
