This was our first lu'au and we had a great time. The costumes of the dancers were beautiful and the dancing was great. The food was good, not great. The drinks seemed a bit watered down, but since they were unlimited it didn't matter.

A complete waste of our money and our last night in Maui. We paid extra for preferred seating and the experience wasn't worth a dime. It was a rainy night and the luau was moved inside. The sound system was so bad that we couldn't...More

A lu'au really makes it feel like a vacation to Hawai'i. The venue is close to the water so you can take pictures and wander around in the area before the Lu'au. Once seated, you can watch the beautiful sunsets that Maui has to offer...More
