What is a Hawaiian luau?
An authentic Hawaiian luau is a party or celebration that brings together family and friends, and you can experience this Hawaiian hospitality and island spirit with one of the many luau available on Maui. All of the top Maui luaus feature either an all-you-can-eat buffet or plated dinner service featuring a wide variety of traditional Hawaiian and Polynesian dishes, unique Pan-Pacific island cuisine, and variety of local favorites.

Depending on the Maui luau, there are a variety of drinks to enjoy. Sip on a rum-based Mai Tai as you watch the sunset, have a coconut and pineapple filled Pina Colada, or try some wine or beer from a local winery and brewery. There are also many non-alcoholic drinks like virgin Lava Flows, refreshing soft drinks, and tropical fruit juices.

Luau attendees will also enjoy some of the best performances at a Maui luau show which will showcase the rich culture of Hawaii, including traditional Polynesian dances like the Hawaiian hula, Tahitian ori, and the thrilling Samoan fire knife dance. Local performers who have been dancing for years will tell stories with their hands and their hips, as they gracefully perform to the sound of the ukulele and Polynesian drums.

What to Expect & Know Before You Go
  • Maui luaus are some of the most popular activities on the island, and it is highly recommended that you make your reservations two to four weeks in advance. Some luaus like the Old Lahaina Luau and the Feast at Lele are so popular that they are normally sold out two to three months in advance so be sure to book your Maui luau tickets as soon as you start planning your visit to Hawaii.
  • Aloha shirts, Hawaiian-print dresses, and casual resort attire are the perfect things to wear to a luau. Flower hair clips and lauhala hats are wonderful accessories too.
  • Most luaus on Maui are held in areas with sand and grass, and for your safety high heel shoes are not recommended.
  • Many of the Maui luaus offer pre-show Hawaiian and Polynesian activities, so you will want to show up on time or a little early so you can participate. Activities often include hula lessons, temporary tattoo art, playing Hawaiian instruments and dance implements, and more.
  • Read over the different packages available at each luau since Maui luau packages will have different prices, inclusions, and seating assignments.
  • If you are celebrating a special occasion, let us know ahead of time and we will inform the luau. Depending on the luau, you could receive a small gift, get a shout out from the MC, and more.
  • Guests with dietary restrictions should carefully go over menu details to make sure that there is food that you will be able to enjoy.
  • If you are planning on having alcoholic beverages at the luau, consider booking a luau that is near where you are staying so you can easily utilize a taxi or rideshare service.

How to Get to a Maui Luau
Although no Maui luaus offer transportation, all of the luaus are located in areas that are easily accessible by car, or depending on where you are staying, by walking as well.

You should be aware of where your luau is located when booking so you can be aware of how long the travel time will be. For instance, Lahaina and Kaanapali are only 10 to 15 minutes away from each other by car, but Wailea is approximately an hour away from both Lahaina and Kaanapali.
