Attraction details
Owner description: At Wailele Polynesian Luau dinner show, guests will embark on an exciting journey to the Polynesian Islands where dance was considered not just as a form of entertainment, but as a means of telling stories. Recognized for providing an award-winning experience, the luau is held oceanfront at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa and features dances and songs from old and modern Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand (Maori), Tonga and Samoa. Highlights include the story of Pele (Goddess of Fire), Hi'ilave Hula Awana dedicated to Wailele (meaning waterfalls) and Maui's most extreme fire knife dance finale called "Siva Afi". The unforgettable evening of fun, culture and entertainment is complemented by a traditional dinner served buffer style and selection of beverages.

We purchased premium seating and would recommend to others! Definitely worth the extra $20 per person. We took the shuttle from the Westin villas, so did not have to worry about parking. Pre-mixed drinks were yummy but mostly juice, but you have the option to order mixed drinks instead. People start to line up early, so definitely plan to be standing in line for 30 minutes for best seats.

Enjoyed the show, very entertaining from the beginning to the end. The fire dancers are the best. We have 2 kids in our group and they never got bored at all.

1st time going to the Wailele Luau and it was such a great show! I've gone to other luaus on Maui, but this one was amazing with their end of show fire knife dance display! It is so amazing! Like none other! Food was ono and service was great. You don't need to pay for premium seating because our seats in the back could see everything and we were close to the food and restrooms. It's actually better to sit near the back because we got the bigger view of the show. We got our photo taken with dancers before the show started and it was a good keepsake. They have local art and native jewelry for sale also. Thank you Westin Maui and Wailele Luau for a memorable night with our family visiting from out of town. Aloha!!

We took the shuttle from the Westin. The show ended and we had to wait an hour for the shuttle to pick us up. Another negative about the Westin.

It was a great evening. The food was very good, the dances very good and the MC, a Fijian Don Rickles, was very enjoyable. Definitely recommend this Luau for anyone!
