Overbooked Event
Prabhat_L, Mar 2023
They over booked the event. The table we were assigned was too far back and I couldn't see anything. We were also the last table for the buffet and most of the food was gone by the time we got there.
Great Luau

I thoroughly enjoyed the finale which us where the guys were doing the fire dance. The food was really good and the event was well organized. I would definitely recommend thus luau.
Not worth it!
Kristy_B, Mar 2023
We felt that this experience was overrated and much too expensive . Slow moving program, boring, talent appeared to be amateurish. Not a good experience.
The pig was to die for!
Rickie_M, Mar 2023
The luau was an amazing experience and the food was fantastic! Best pulled pork I've ever had! It was a really fun family experience.

Jesus_O, Mar 2023
Food was great. Entry could be more efficient. Emcee was great as was show! Stage should be higher for better visibility. Sound check would help, audio not clear.
Great night
Mike_W, Mar 2023
The whole night was great from the people who were at our table to the food and the show was awesome. I really enjoyed that they included the audience in the show.
Great Luau!
CRISTINA_H, Mar 2023
If you appreciate culture and art this Luau is the place for you! The entire event from start to finish was a wonderful experience. The events and activities were amazing. The food was delicious. Of course, the host and the performers really made the whole experience feel truly authentic. A must-do experience in Maui!
Not a great luau
Adrienne_L, Mar 2023
I was not impressed with this luau. The performers were good, but they need a larger stage. The rest of it was not great. There were a million people and I struggled to see anything because of all the heads in the way. The majority of the people were seated very far from the stage. The food was also not that great, and the meat was particularly dry. The buffet line went fast, and they kept the food refilled well, but the desserts were limited in variety and of poor quality. The vegetarian option was also sad (tofu, mushroom, and quinoa drenched in oil). The drinks line was very long, so if you don't want to wait, you can drink coffee, tea, iced tea, Blue Hawaiian, or water. I'd skip this luau and try to go to one with fewer spectators.
Loved it!
Alice_A, Mar 2023
Food and entertainment were great! Need more bathrooms! The emcee did a great job of getting everyone involved in the fun.
Alessa_R, Mar 2023
AMAZING!! Even indoors it was incredible & the food was delicious!!! Loved every minute of it and would do it again 🤩
A must see
Barbara_K, Mar 2023
We were moved in doors because it rained all day and night. Which was fine the music, dancers and emcee, were excellent. The Buffet was so good no room for dessert, would see it again.
Rain played spoilsport
Harshad_P, Mar 2023
It turned out to be rainy so the event was cancelled halfway. We had fun chatting with other folks at our table and tried to make the most out of the rainy evening. The eventis held in open grounds so be prepared for direct exposure to weather elements.
Highlight of trip

The stories of the Hawaiian culture, the food , the dances, the amazing scenery were all memorable on our last night in Maui after being here for 1 week. A great way to ending our awesome trip here in Maui!

This luau was amazing. The host explained the culture and dances very well. The dancers, male and female, were exceptional. They included the audience and made it so much fun. An event that will be remembered forever.
