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.
Right in the heart of Lahaina, the Old Lahaina Luau, which will reopen in February 2024, 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pride of Maui’s Sunset Luau Dinner Cruise is an excellent way to maximize your vacation time while you are here on Maui.
Obviously, attending a luau on Maui is one of the most popular things to do in all of Hawaii. When you pair that with a sunset dinner cruise aboard a spacious and stable catamaran, you can take part in more than one incredible Maui activity at the same time. What’s more, when you book a Sunset Luau Cruise during Maui’s Winter months (roughly December-March), you will have the chance to see some whales during Maui’s most magical hours.
