Show with a view
Nicole_B, Apr 2024
The fireshow was my personal favorite! Performers were lively and just very energetic! The food was delicious has variety for everyone's taste.
Highly recommended Luau
Courtnei_C, Apr 2024
Unfortunately our luau was changed from outdoor to indoor due to the weather. However, the luau was amazing, the performers put on a very lively show and we were thoroughly entertained between each set. The food options were great and the bartenders kept the drinks flowing. At the end, the rain had subsided and we were able to see the fireshow too!
Not worth the money
Sarah_Z, Apr 2024
It rained throughout the entire luau. Instead of moving us inside they continued to serve dinner, dessert and have the show with us all getting wet and cold. The experience was miserable and the tour guide stated unless they moved it inside no refundable. I paid for preferred seating and could not see the cliff diving portion at all. Skip this while in Maui.
Great time and great food
John_A, Mar 2024
So much fun! We learned so much about Maui and had fun together on our anniversary. The fire show at the end was remarkable.
Beautiful fun show with great food and service.
Christopher_K, Mar 2024
The show was incredible as was the food and service. The only problem we had was the booking said parking was free and the luau staff even validated our parking ticket but leaving the parking garage of the hotel they tried to tell us we needed to pay $2.00. Granted, not a huge amount but just based on principle we told them it was advertised as free parking and we would not pay. Seemed a bit like a scam.
Amazing time
Prathik_K, Mar 2024
The maui nui luau was a wonderful experience. The performances were fantastic and was very well organized

Michael_B, Mar 2024
The food and music are both great. I wish I could say the same for the drinks, but they are SO watered down it’s ridiculous. Definitely bring your own booze to this party.
