Old Lahaina Luau
Visit a top Maui luau and one of the best in all of Hawaii. At nearly 100 percent capacity year round, Maui’s Old Lahaina Luau is hugely popular and for a reason. The Old Lahaina Luau staff take great pride in presenting a truly authentic Hawaiian luau - an evening of traditional Hawaiian cuisine, music, cultural dances and island crafts. Celebrate Hawaii’s rich island culture in a rustic setting reminiscent of an old Hawaiian fishing village.
Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly welcomed with a Hawaiian lei. Pre-dinner activities include arts & crafts demonstrations as well as the traditional imu ceremony, in which the kalua pua'a (roast pig) is taken out of the underground oven. Following these cultural presentations is the delicious luau buffet dinner, which features a wide variety of delicacies (see menu below). After dinner, sit back, relax and watch a spectacular Polynesian show featuring music and dances from the Hawaiian Islands and greater Polynesia.
This is a very popular luau and tickets often sell out weeks in advance. Also, all seats are reserved and prioritized by the date a reservation is confirmed. Guests may choose from traditional Hawaiian mat seating or regular conventional tables and chairs. Please confirm your seating style at the time of reservation, as it is difficult to change after all guests have arrived.
