Guidebook Reviews

Fodor's Guidebook:

Luaus are a major attraction. You get what you pay for, and many of the best book weeks or months in advance, so reserve early. Plan your luau night early on in your trip to help you get into the Hawaiian spirit.

Simply breathtaking backdrop. The tasty family-style dinner serves a a three-course dinner that includes variety of local staples and desserts, as well as an open bar. The performance concludes with a jaw-dropping solo fire-knife dance.

Moon Guidebook:

Attending a luau is like going to dinner theater. It’s a good opportunity to try a lot of local foods at once. If you really enjoy a good Broadway show, then you might enjoy a luau, and kids seem to love them.

The Marriott luau has a highly entertaining performance, and the backdrop of the setting sun creates a panorama you would expect from a luau in paradise.

Maui Revealed Guidebook:

A luau can be a blast, and, if your time allows for one, they are highly recommended. The better ones are at the higher price end, and you should book them in advance.

Beautiful setting; the stage is between you and the ocean
