“Ridiculous seats behind the scenery - probably a nice show but we couldn't see it!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

+ great and beautiful location with nice attractions
+ food was good for a buffet

- very poor seating at the very right end
-we saw the show from behind and could only guess how beautiful it would have been if we had been able to see the faces of the artists
-no clear instruction when the buffet could be approached for the 2nd time

make sure you are seated not at the very end of the right or left side! Otherwise you pay a lot of money for just seeing the back of the people performing!

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014 via mobile

This was a lovely evening out. We were almost immediately offered mai tais and seated upon arrival. Parking was easy as well. The grounds are beautiful, and they have several cultural activities prior to dinner. Dinner is buffet style with a nice variety of food (plenty of vegetarian options as well). The drinks were also great, and all mixed drinks can be made non alcoholic. Staff was very friendly and efficient and show was good. Highly recommend.

“Must do family Luau!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

We made day-of reservations (lucky for us there was a last minute cancellation) and sat in the back row table/chairs and had a wonderful time. The table seat a max of 8 so we just had 1 other family of 4 with us. Be sure to get there on time (545pm) to enjoy the pre-show activities with your kids and see the sunset. The server we had was attentive, had fun with the kids and suggested our table to move our chairs up to the brick wall for better views during the show. Another server grabbed pillows and put our kids on the floor near the stage - everyone really enjoyed the show. The food was great - there was plenty of it and a lot of variety for everyone. The show was authentic and beautiful to watch. We had a wonderful evening - it's a must do for a family.

“A Must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

They put on such an amazing show! They tell the history of the islands. The performers are amazing and the food is fantastic! before the show begins you can walk around and see different island traditions and you can watch the pig being taken out of the pit. The food is just amazing. Call ahead of time and ask for traditional seating I always reserve early for front seats.

“Nice night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

We were in Maui for our daughters wedding and wanted something extra for us and the small wedding party. For a $100 each person you get a virgin Mai Tai or a alcohol one upon arrival. The wait staff explains the Open Bar and the great Hawaiian food in the buffet. The grounds a beautifully landscaped with different Hawaiian cultural activities going on. Would definitely recommend this luau to anybody visiting Maui.
