This was the first luau that I've ever attended, which means I don't have a good perspective of what a good or bad luau is. That being said, in my opinion, it was worth my money. Good food, beautiful resort, open bar with decent drinks,...More

5 of us had VIP seating. We all had a blast. I've been to other luau's and this one was best so far. We vacation every December to one of the Hawaiian Islands, Maui is my favorite so far out of Big Island, Oahu, Kauai

Had a great time at this Luau, staying at the Grand Wailea, so walking to it was key. Check-in and seating takes some time, sho up at 4pm to check in, then come back about 5:05pm to get your table. Buffet was solid, nothing spectacular,...More

The show itself we were pleasantly surprised by, and as a local I have to say the food was pretty ono (delicious), especially the chow fun. But the reason I'm giving this a "very good" rating as opposed to "excellent" is because the check in...More

We got tickets at Costco there on Maui shortly before the day of the luau. Their tickets are discounted but no guarantee of availability.
