Reviews from Wailea Nights Luau in Wailea, Maui, Hawaii
“I’ve been to many luaus large and small over the years and this was the best one. Although very organized and well-run, it also felt authentic like you were at a Hawaiian family party. This luau is smaller than the big resort luaus, making it more intimate and less Disney-esque. I shamefully gorged on the food – 5 different kinds of meat or fish on my plate – and all were excellent. Drinks are included (best Mai Tai in a long time!).
The performers were enthusiastic and talented. The lead musician is actually going on The Voice this week (no kidding!). I liked how the performances and stories were Maui-focused vs others. The kids loved getting on stage to learn hula and taking photos with the performers afterwards. And everyone loved the fire dancing at the end. 10/10 recommend next time you’re on Maui.”Russell S., February 2024
“Amazing, amazing, amazing!!!!! If you want to see the culture and experience true hospitality in a more intimate experience, this is the perfect luau! Me and my husband enjoyed every minute of it! The food was delicious, and the hosts were amazing, the drinks were amazing, the show was amazing. Loved that it was small, felt like we really got to appreciate everything a lot more. Definitely worth every penny.
We got to have an amazing sunset 🌅 as well. Thank y’all for an amazing experience and one of our highlights here in Maui! When we come back with my family we will be back.”Jesse G., February 2024
“My family really enjoyed the luau. It is a smaller more intimate venue with the show close. The dancers were outstanding – especially the fire dance on the lawn beside the deck. The music was outstanding with Grammy nominated musicians. Food was great with a broad selection of typical Hawaiian luau fare.”Pam S., January 2024
