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.
Seated in our first-row around the stage, guests are seated cross-legged on cushions and dine from a low table.

There are luaus everywhere you turn in Hawaii. The majority feature warriors who twirl fire and frightening men with long tongues who circulate throughout the crowd scaring the pants (or skirts) off guests. Unfortunately, these features, while Polynesian, are NOT HAWAIIAN! The Old Lahaina Luau - while sometime criticized for "no fire" is the most authentic Hawaiian luau a visitor...
We had experienced a luau during a previous visit to the islands - but not to the standards of the excellent Old Lahaina Luau. The meal and service were above and beyond and the setting sublime - right on the ocean toward the North end of Lahaina. There was a marvelous focus on Hawaiian history and culture from beginning to end, from the food preparation to the entertainment - which was impressive and lovely. Perfect for the whole family.
This luau is actually worth going to. The show tells the history and myth of Hawaii through traditional hula dancing. The dancers are extremely talented. It's not just a few people shaking their junk at you. They actually are serious hula dancers. They have an "open bar" and the food is decent. I would not say the food is the reason you go but at least it's good and there are plenty of choices. The give you a flower for your hair, a lei, and a mini banana bread to take home. We had a 13 year old and a four year old at our table and both were very into the performance. My one complaint is the wood carving artisans were hawking their wares in a real hard sell fashion. That was uncomfortable. That and you'll have to drive home with all the drunks from the "open bar".
Amazing show! Try to get in a little early as they have some small activities before the food and show. The food was really good. I enjoyed the chicken long rice. The guava butter with the bread rolls were awesome. It's a buffet and a show! Also make sure to get reservations early, like months in advance before your trip to Maui.
Spectacular show! Learn about the history of Hawaii through the art of Hula. Let these amazing storytellers share their history through song and dance. The hospitality and welcome you receive upon arrival sets the tone for your evening of food and entertainment. Food is served buffet style, after the ceremony to remove the whole roasted pig from the ground. You will enjoy traditional Hawaiian foods, and your choice of beverages are available upon request to the attentive staff. Be prepared to spend at least a couple of hours to fully enjoy the food and show.
Spectacular show, Delicious drinks and amazingly prepared Food! All you want from a great luau! The people were warm and welcoming! After you have been greeted with the welcome drink and a Lei, they take you to your seating for the night. Our server was funny and helpful. He kept checking on us and ofcourse asked if we need anymore drinks. Our table tried so many drinks but our server was amazingly energetic to serve us. We have an amazing evening!
An experience of a lifetime! Our children and grandchildren joined us on our trip to Maui. We were told this was the most authentic Luau and it sure was! The Hawaiian dancers told the history which was awesome. The food was delicious and the drinks were yummy. Everything was included in the price to attend. Best time during our 10 days in Lahaina 😊
Very nice place. Server Ridge was AWESOME. Story line was good. Took a bit to get things moving. They could improve with some entertainment while people are being seated. Otherwise, fun stop.
When my wife booked our Hawaiian trip, the only thing I asked for is that I experience a pig roast of some kind, and she totally delivered. But the luau is...
One of the best buffets I've had yet! The food was delicious and there was so much selection. I loved the leaf wrapped pork, poke, chicken noodle, taro...
This Luau was completely awesome. The atmosphere was great and service was top notch. Upon your arrival you are greeted with a lea and a Mai Tai (non...
