As the sun begins to dip below the Hawaiian horizon, and the sky turns to a soft orange glow, begin an unforgettable evening on Kaanapali Beach with the Maui Nui Luau! Gasp in amazement as cliff divers plunge off of the towering Pu’ukeka’a, or Black Rock, into sea, and see for yourself why this luau at the Sheraton Maui is one of the most popular luau on Maui. Be greeted with a sweetly fragrant fresh flower lei and a refreshing tropical beverage as you make your way to the garden grounds, before sitting down for mouthwatering all-you-care-to-eat Polynesian buffet and an open bar. Witness incredible dances that will take you on a journey through the Pacific, and even see a thrilling Samoan fire knife dance.

What is a luau?: A luau is a celebration. A luau is a party. A luau is way for family and friends to come together to share the spirit of Aloha! There are two main parts that make up any good luau. One is having a lot of delicious food, and the other is great entertainment.

The food will often start to be prepared the day before, or even days before, and the menu can range from authentic Hawaiian cuisine like kalua pork (pulled pork), lomi lomi salmon (tomato, onion and salmon ceviche), and poi (mashed taro root), to dishes from other cultures like Chinese-style fried rice, Portuguese linguica, and Japanese teriyaki chicken.

Luau that are held at family homes, normally have simple entertainment like a few people playing their ukulele while friends and family jump up to dance hula. This style of performance is called "kanikapila" and is quite popular at parties in Hawaii. Larger luau will often have professional performers, and performances that showcase the traditions of a variety of Polynesian backgrounds. There is the fast shaking hips of the Tahitian ori, the gentle hand gestures of the Tongan tauʻolunga, the slapping of the Samoan fa'ataupati, and of course, the Hawaiian hula.
