The last time we were at this Luau was ten years ago. The food quality is just as good now as it was then. The pig is cooked in the ground as per the traditional method. My only disappointment was with some of the show. Ten years ago, the show was purely traditional Hula telling the story of the Hawaiian Islands through the dance. This time I was sorry to see they have gone somewhat touristy like the hotel luaus with the grass skirts and coconut shell bikini tops for part of the show. That being said, it is still a worthwhile experience.
Fantastic evening, if you can get in...make your reservations 6 weeks before you arrive in Maui.
Out of all the luaus I've been to, this one tops them all! The food was absolutely amazing. I loved all the authenticity that the crew provided and made everyone feel like family.
The experience was a great since it was my first time in Hawai'i. Food was great and so full of flavor. Best customer service and such a lively atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back the next time.
Atmosphere, service, entertainment, food and the drinks! A fun Hawaiian evening everyone should experience when you visit Maui!
The cost of this Luau is justified by the perfect food, a guy who calls himself Dano, although his real name begins with a K, and the cocktails which were the best I had anywhere while on Maui. Of course the stage production is very professional and entertaining. I had many, many cocktails and wish to apologize to the lovely dancers that let me have a photo with them and for answering my questions about coconuts.
