Check out this assortment of awesome Maui luaus!
You should experience your luau either on the first or second to last day of your vacation. “Why is that?” you may ask. Well, Maui luaus back in the day were gatherings to celebrate many things. Today’s local luau is commonly to celebrate a baby’s first birthday, and it is big fun! Hotel, or “free standing,” Maui luaus are a celebration of the food, song and dance of all the Polynesian islands.
We recommend your luau take place on your first or second to last day to help you understand and feel the aloha spirit. Aloha has many meanings, but the three most common are “hello,” “goodbye,” and “love.” So let Mother Maui and her people greet you with aloha or bid you a fond aloha on your day before departing. Maui never truly says goodbye. You will always be yearning for your return to the Valley Isle, and there is a Mauian phrase that simply states the reason why: Maui no ka oi! Maui is the best!
So, how do you know which of the Maui luaus is the best? First, ask yourselves a couple of questions: are we a romantic couple, a multi-generational family, or are we simply a party group? Do we have children in our party? There is a perfect luau for each type of group! Also, you may want to consider where you are staying on the island if you are looking for a luau close to your accommodations. If you have a special occasion to celebrate, always let your activity specialist know so it can be noted in your reservations.
Below is a list of our most popular Maui luaus. All of them provide an incredible experience, and it is a good idea to consider more than price when selecting your luau. We have added short explanations to help you determine which celebration is best for you. All of the luaus include a big dinner feast, a wide assortment of beverages and of course, the beautiful and dynamic song and dance of Polynesia!
