Maui Luau - The Best Luaus in Maui
When booking a Hawaiian Luau for your stay on Maui, book in advance. Tourism makes up the majority of the Islands economy, and approximately 3 million tourists visit annually. The Island itself is gorgeous, and whether your staying on the West or South you will have a wonderful time at any Luau. The Island is 727 square miles. With a population of 117,644 it is the third-most populous of the Hawaiian islands. Given the Island's size, it is important to book a Luau near your accommodations. If you are on the North end, they do sometimes have a Luau at the Ritz Carlton, however your best bet is driving or taking a quick cab to the Luau options on the West side (a 20 minute ride).
Luaus On the West side of Maui
Old Lahaina Luau
One of our favorites. The Old Lahaina Luau is open 7 days a week. In October to March doors open at 5:30pm, and from April to September open at 6:00pm. The Luau setting is oceanfront and located on North side of Front Street in Lahaina (an easy drive if you are on the north end). The price is $95.83 for adults, children ages 12 and under are $61.46. The price includes a buffet, open bar, a Polynesian Show, taxes, and Orchid Lei Greeting. When booking, you will have two seating options – sitting on a traditional Hawaiian mat with a low table (the benefit is these seats are closer to the stage). The second seating option is sitting at conventional tables with chairs. To book a reservation call: 1-808-667-1998 (or) Toll Free: 1-800-248-5828
The Feast at Lele
This is my personal favorite. It's a smaller setting and feels a bit more personal. The Luau is open 7 days a week. In October to March doors open at 5:30; from April to September doors open at 6:00. The location is beautiful, you sit oceanfront. The Luau is in Lahaina on the South side of Front Street. The cost is $110 for adults, children ages 2-12 are $80 plus taxes. While on the higher end, it's worth the few extra dollars. Instead of buffet style, this Luau has gourmet table service, open bar, a Polynesian Show and an Orchid Lei Greeting.
