Activity Details
The Setting: Located at the Grand Wailea Resort & Spa, one of Maui's top luxury resorts, your luau will take place at one of the resort's ocean side lawns, where you will enjoy the most beautiful atmosphere! You will be greeted with a fresh flower lei by a friendly wait-staff, who will take you to your table at the premium section of the luau grounds (rows 1 & 2, stage front & center); 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.

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.
