Loved how unique this luau is! It was a great culture experience, with each of the 5 courses having a different country cuisine and paired with a dance from that country. The staff was attentive and welcoming and the dancers were awesome. The food was good, and you can't beat unlimited booze. A bonus, was that the course were served family style for the table, instead of the typical buffet line. Really led to a more intimate experience. I would recommend this luau if your in Maui.
I've refrained from reviewing Lele for so many years because I like the "intimate" setting there and don't want to lose it (and advertise too much). The one "con" I'll share at the end. But after 25 years of going to Maui (twice a year - cause of our timeshare) I might as well share why it's the best. #1 it's tight and more intimate along the gentle lapping of the light waves at that part of town #2 you have multiple "private" servers for each table sitting. #3 the dancers are definitely of a higher professional caliber than the others (and likely get paid better). #4 (and most important in many ways) is that before the show (or after) you're right smack downtown Lahaina and don't need to go back to your car - - you merely stroll on the Lahaina Front St. and snoop in and out of the local vendors & bars and "live" music and art galleries. Adds to the ambiance. If you go to the others, you're either hemmed in by Tour busses that "bus 'em in" afterward (read: Old Lahaina) or you're stuck at the Luau "hotel resort" sponsoring the activity -- and in my opinion the whole name of the game while you're there is to get "away from the hotel" environment -- not get further into it. #5 the quality and amount of food is much better than the "cattle calls" of all the other Luaus, which are all more like college "buffets" or smorgasbords. So if you want a "quality" experience -- this is the place to be. They charge probably $15 or $20 more a person - - but if you want to save the 15-bucks? sure go to the college chow-line or buffet style (even if they say it's "private" . . it'll have a buffet, or college co-ed dining room feeling. The one Con of Lele??? Don't ask me why, but as many servers as Lele has? It seems it takes a bit of time to get a drink -- every single year we remind them of this (longer than usual even than for a restaurant.) But we still keep going there for the experience.
Absolutely the very best experience. 5 courses of gourmet regional Hawaiian food paired with the regional show. Served family style it is excellent food; more than you could eat. Open bar more than you can drink. Our best experience on the islands. Don’t miss this one!
My friends recommended this luau and even hosted their wedding guests there for dinner. It also got a good write up in my guidebook so I figured it was...
I've told my friends I am done with luau's in Hawaii. For the past 4 times that I've been to Oahu I have gone to Paradise Cove all 4 times! But they...
Do not listen to the bad reviews! I have honestly been to many luaus on Kauai, Oahu and Maui over many years. This is the absolute best luau you will go to...
