Old Lahaina Luau

Why We Love It -  This is the most popular luau on Maui. Typically sold out several weeks in advance. If there are no available dates, we recommend the Feast at Lele which is in fact our favorite luau. It's more intimate, you get table service (rather than a buffet) and it's right on the beach!

Enjoy a beautiful night of Hawaiian music, dance, food, and entertainment, oceanfront, under the stars!

The only luau on Maui showcasing strictly Hawaiian music, dance, and food. Enjoy learning about Hawaiian history and culture along the ocean's edge, and gather around the 'Imu' (earth oven) as the kalua pig is unearthed. At sunset, the evening's main entertainment begins. Our award-winning production tells the story of the Hawaiians, beginning with the history of the Polynesian migration, then to the ancient Hawaiian Hula, followed by the evolution of a more contemporary style Hula.

Aloha Greeting
You will be individually greeted with a fresh flower lei, tropical drink and a personalized souvenir program. Premium open bar is included through out the evening. A host will escort you to reserved seats and acquaint them with our Luau grounds. Professional photographers are available to capture the evening's memories (no obligation to purchase). 

Laulima & Imu Presentation

We were told by several people that this is one of the best Luaus and everyone was right! The property was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the show was spectacular! The performers were so talented and we loved how they wove in culture telling the story of Pele. Our server, Kai, was great! He was very friendly and attentive to everyone’s needs. I highly recommended this Luau, you will not be disappointed! Get there early if you want to park at the venue, if not, it’s just a short walk across the street (we got there an hour early and had no trouble finding a spot in the luau lot). The luau venue is about a 10/15 minute walk to the front street shops.

The last few trips this luau has been sold out so this year we booked a few months in advance. Was it worth the hype?? Yes!!! When You arrive there are fresh drinks, open bar with table service and also a fresh flower leigh greeting . There are lots of activities when you first arrive before the actual show starts Lawn bowling, sample dance classes, pics, beautiful sun set and live music , plus lots more. There is fresh sweet potatoes chips and dip plus banana bread before the main meal. The food was delicious and the coffee was some of the best I had while on the island. They bring a lovely desert tray as well. There is truly not a bad seat in the house. The show was amazing and tells the storys and history. If you have the chance please check this out.

We have travelled to Lahaina many times and never thought to book the Old Lahaina Luau sufficiently in time to get a reservation before it sold out—until this time. It did not disappoint. The food was great and plentiful, drinks flowed freely and the entertainment was top notch. Service was incredible. We have seen many Luaus over the years and this was definitely in the top one or two.
