Who visits Maui without experiencing an authentic Hawai’ian Lu’au? You can’t go wrong with our top three picks:
Old Lahaina Lu’au
The Old Lahaina Lu’au offers an evening of traditional Hawaiian cuisine, music, cultural dances and demonstrations. This highly popular Lu’au has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the most popular attractions on Maui.
You will experience a genuine reflection of Hawaii’s rich history while enjoying an ocean view and sunset. A bountiful buffet of regional cuisine, with a premium open bar included throughout the evening. Guests are individually greeted with fresh flower lei, tropical drink and a personalized souvenir program. During the first hour, guests can learn about Hawaiian history and culture while they relax along the ocean’s edge.
Feast of Lele
Lele is the ancient name for Lahaina, and this is the beach where the royal family of Maui would feast and entertain. The Feast at Lele showcases the food, music and dance of four Pacific Island nations, Hawaii, Tahiti, Tonga and Samoa. You will enjoy a five-course gourmet meal, with Polynesian entertainment produced by the Old Lahaina Lu’au team. The feast at Lele has already garnered many positive reviews including prestigious, Travel and Leisure Magazine, which said “This is the most fabulous cooking on Maui”. Every table is intimate and the venue offers a panoramic view of West Maui sunsets.
The Migrations Lu’au Show at Sugar Beach features traveling performers and minstrels. The troupe performs in many locations on Maui, but for one night a month at Sugar Beach, you can be their special guest for an outstanding Maui Lu’au show.
Migrations Lu’au is Maui’s most intimate interactive Lu’au experience. With an audience of no more than 50 guests per night, the Lu’au Show at Sugar Beach is a dramatic departure from other Lu’au shows that can host several hundred people a night.
During the course of the evening, you will be served a sumptuous, locally sourced, Pacific Rim-Hawai’ian fusion cuisine that is a sophisticated upgrade to the usual Hawai’ian buffet served at many Lu’au shows. You will create your own custom head lei from an assortment of flowers, vines, shells and other traditional elements, and experience authentic Hawai’ian dance, stories and traditions.
