Depending on what all they would like to do, see and eat, guests will have an exceptional selection of venues to enjoy some live Hawaiian entertainment. Read through our list of the 10 Best Maui Luaus below, and welcome to the warm and friendly shores of Maui Nui.
Old Lahaina Luau
Right in the heart of Historic Lahaina Town, the Old Lahaina Luau is one of the most popular luaus in all of Maui. It’s very authentic, and it has been operating since 1996. Visitors can often book Maui activity packages that will include discounted tickets to the Old Lahaina Luau.
The Feast at Mokapu at Andaz
The Feast at Mokapu is the most luxurious luau on Maui. It takes place at the Andaz Maui in Wailea, on the Southside of the island. The Feast at Mokapu is Maui’s newest luau and is the best choice for those staying in Wailea and Kihei, with its easy access and valet parking.
Feast at Lele
The Feast at Lele Luau takes place in West Maui. In the ancient Hawaiian language, Lele means “cruel sun” and it used to be the name for Lahaina. This is an especially unique luau to enjoy while in Maui because it is held at an oceanfront location that was once reserved for Hawaiian royalty. Unlike a more traditional luau meal, Feast at Lele provides private tables for guests instead of communal tables.
Myths of Maui Luau
The Myths of Maui Luau is held right on the oceanfront at the Royal Lahaina Resort. This is such a beautiful Maui luau show. It tells the ancient Hawaiian stories and folklore that come specifically from the cultural history of the Island of Maui. It also showcases aspects of more Polynesian cultures from places like Tahiti, New Zealand, and Tonga. This Maui luau has been happening here since the early 1970s.
Drums of the Pacific Luau
The Drums of the Pacific Luau is held at the Hyatt Regency Resort in Ka’anapali. This is a fantastic luau and it has earned a reputation for the best fire dancing performance out of all the luaus on Maui. The entertainment takes place on a beautiful stone stage and it feels a bit more like a theatrical performance than a traditional luau.
Maui Nui Luau
The Maui Nui Luau takes place at The Sheraton Maui Resort at Black Rock. The evening starts off with the blow of a conch shell and an exciting cliff dive from Black Rock. The setting offers some gorgeous views of the coastline and outer islands, and the overall luau experience is just amazing.
Wailele Polynesian Luau
The Wailele Polynesian Luau is located at the Westin Maui Resort & Spa in Ka’anapali. Guests can book either general or premium seating but either way, the feast is just delicious. It is held outdoors in a lush garden setting, where guests will enjoy live music and performances that highlight some of Hawaii’s demi-gods like Pele, the fire goddess.
Te Au Moana Luau
The Te Au Moana Luau is held at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort in South Maui. In the ancient Hawaiian language, Te Au Moana means “the ocean tide.” This Maui luau is an homage to all of the Polynesian cultures that are tied together throughout Oceania.
A Grand Wailea Luau
A Grand Wailea Luau takes place in South Maui at the Grand Wailea Resort & Spa. This is one of the most fun and incredible luau shows in Maui, hands down. With all of the opulence and outstanding service for which the Grand Wailea is known, guests are sure to enjoy a well-produced show and a fabulous luau feast. The setting is just so picturesque and inviting, and guests will love the beautiful views of the South Maui sunset.
