Activity Details

The Setting: Located at the Grand Wailea Resort & Spa, one of Maui's top luxury resorts, your Honua'ula luau will take place at one of the resort's ocean front lawns, where you will enjoy the most beautiful sunset views ever! You will be greeted with a shell lei by a friendly wait-staff, who will take you to your table, where you'll be in comfort in an uncrowded setting. You may walk up to any of the bars or get your drinks served to you at your table. Once settled in, you may roam around and visit with local Hawaiian artists showcasing their work, have a professional photographer take your picture at sunset (available for purchase after the show) and take in the awesome views of your special Maui evening.
Also available: Grand Wailea Luau Premium Seating where you'll get seated at center stage, rows 1 and 2.

The Show: Your Polynesian review will take you back in time, when Hawaii was discovered by the mighty seafaring Polynesians. The show features segments portraying the history and the legends of Hawaii, featured through the dance of hula, acrobatics and more!  Legends such as Pele, the goddess of fire, the mermaid of Maui, Kananaka and the love story legend of Naulu. The evening culminates with the exciting and 2-time World knife-fire dancer champion, who will take your breath away with his incredible abilities.

Additional Information

Valet parking is the only option for a cost of $25 per car. There are two lots available for your convenience; the closest to your luau being at the Group Lobby, 2nd entrance if you are coming from the north (Kihei side), and 1st for those coming from the south (Makena). Please be sure to take your valet parking ticket to the luau check-in for validation.

Seating is first come, first served for both Standard and Premium sections. Although the Grand Wailea Luau is a fairly small setting, we recommend those who are particular about where they want to sit to arrive as early as 4 pm (5 pm during peak summer months) in order to choose a table at check-in. The luau check-in staff will show you the seating chart and you'll get to choose your table (not the actual chairs); afterwords you may take a walk around the beautiful Grand Wailea Resort & Spa grounds or stop by the Molokini Bistro Restaurant, located beach/pool side and have a cocktail while you wait (discount beverage coupons available at the luau check-in desk). You may return to the luau grounds at 5 pm (6 pm during peak summer months) and take your seats for the incredible evening ahead of you!
