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 also one of our favorite luaus located right down the street.
COVID Update -  We are open! Contactless payment and checkin, outdoor open air seating, private tables, and food plated and delivered to your table are the major safety changes. Masks are required when not seated. Traditional Mats are available for a party of 4 or more. Currently we are sold out until December for Traditional Mats.

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. 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.

“The Old Lahaina Luau has reinvented itself authentically in a genre rife with cliché. At sunset, guests sit at tables or on lauhala fiber mats on the ground in front of a grass-mound stage. The program offers intelligent narration and excellent ancient hula. The food is authentic Hawaiian and delicious.”

Activity Maui tip: Traditional seating is a great option for kids! The grass next to the table is perfect for them to dance along and also easy for them to stretch out for a nap. Note that due to COVID, preference is given to larger reservations (4 or more) since these tables can accommodate 8 guests and are no longer shared. Also, traditional seating is currently sold out through August 2021. We can get you on the waitlist for traditional seating and confirm tables and chairs. Let us know if that works for when you complete your booking.

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.

The entertainment was wonderful. The food and drinks are beyond bad. Drinks are watery, and lack taste. Food was horrendous. Even if it's an authentic menu,...
