Fodor's Expert Review Old Lahaina Luau

Maui Themed Entertainment Fodor's Choice

Considered the best luau on Maui, it's certainly the most traditional. Before the show starts, immerse yourself in Hawaiian culture through interactive stations, and witness a traditional imu (underground oven) being unearthed. Sitting either at a table or on a lauhala (mat made of leaves), you can dine on Hawaiian cuisine such as pork laulau (wrapped with taro sprouts in ti leaves), ahi poke (raw ahi salad), lomilomi salmon (traditional Hawaiian diced side dish), 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... READ MORE
