If you’re in Wailea and have never been to a luau, you will enjoy the one at the Grand Wailea for the open bar and kalua pork if nothing else. The staff is friendly, the event is well-organized, and the food is better than passably...More

Our family decided to try the Grand Luau after hearing several folks recommend this one, and we could not have had a better experience. The Luau has a nice blend of Hawaiian history and culture without being overly “touristy.” There was a really good selection...More

This was a great experience. We bought our tickets at Costco so it was a pretty good deal. The Grand Wailea Resort was beautiful and the show was great! Definitely something to experience when you vacation in Maui!

Fairly good food considering the amount served. Kinda pricey, but touring in HI is pricey. Good dancers and MC. Bar Drinks were included, but muck lower quality than I expected. The pre-prepared alcohol drinks at the entrance table were terrible.

Excellent. Great food, super show, bar was quick and drinks generous. Highly recommended. Setting was beautiful. We upgraded to a table by the stage and was money well spent. Staff were very helpful.

Go for the experience. I had a four year old and was worth paying for premium seating as we could see so well she stayed in focus. Food and beverage isn’t fantastic but ok considering how many people they feed. Good overall experience

This was the first luau that I've ever attended, which means I don't have a good perspective of what a good or bad luau is. That being said, in my opinion, it was worth my money. Good food, beautiful resort, open bar with decent drinks,...More

I feel foolish, yes the Carnival ships use Kahului therefore the luau is only a 30 minute or so drive away

We got tickets at Costco there on Maui shortly before the day of the luau. Their tickets are discounted but no guarantee of availability.
