Fodor's Review

Considered the best luau on Maui, it's certainly the most traditional. Immerse yourself in making kapa (bark cloth), weaving lauhala (coconut-palm fronds), and pounding poi at the various interactive stations. Sitting either at a table or on a lauhala mat, you can dine on Hawaiian cuisine such as pork laulau (wrapped with taro sprouts in ti leaves), ahi poke, lomilomi salmon, and haupia. At sunset, the historical journey touches on the arrival of the Polynesians, the influence of missionaries and, later, the advent of tourism. Talented performers will charm you with beautiful music, powerful chanting, and a variety of hula styles, from kahiko, the ancient way of communicating with the gods, to auana, the modern hula. You won't see fire dancers here, as they aren't considered traditional. This luau sells out regularly, so make reservations before your trip to Maui.
