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.

We thoroughly enjoyed the luau here. The food was very good, pork, steak and chicken. The pork was moist and flavorful, the steak tender and well seasoned. The most impressive was the Ahi Poke, The show was amazing, not like a night club act as we have seen previously, but a story of Hawaii told in reverence. Very enjoyable.

A bit expensive but a wonderful value. The food is everything that I thought a Luau would be. Pig cooked in the ground with a large variety of excellent traditional foods. Open bar, live Hawaiian music, a show depicting the historical events of the islands and traditional crafts and dances being demonstrated. Don't miss it! Our friends have tried others and eventually given several recommendations for Old Lahaina. The entire staff could not have been better! Would do it again no question!

We had an awesome time at this luau! We recommend getting there early to take some pics and walk around. The pictures are only $20 each and they give you a digital copy which is nice. For the luau they went through the history of Hawaii and how the hula has evolved so that was very unique. The food was absolutely fantastic... our favorites were the ahi tuna poke, pork, and banana bread. The chef even came around and asked how the food was. The couples dance celebrating honeymooners and anniversaries was very thoughtful and special to us. Our sever was “special k” he was attentive, quick, and very welcoming. A great experience all around. Thank you for being part of our honeymoon!
