When you step through the gates at the Old Lāhainā Lūʻau, you’re swept into a well-preserved epicenter of Hawaiian culture, storytelling, and feasting with a breathtaking ocean view. This isn’t just any Hawaiian Lūʻau, it’s the best one the islands have to offer. Join us for an evening that shares the Hawaiian culture through hospitality, food, and entertainment.
The Old Lāhainā Lūʻau has been a favorite of worldwide visitors for a reason; you’re treated like ʻohana, or family. Even during this trying time, the staff has come together to continue bringing aloha to visitors who are looking for the most authentic Hawaiian Lūʻau Maui has to offer. A few things have changed since the days before this pandemic.
After arriving with your loved ones, you are greeted with the gift of a fresh orchid lei, a flower necklace, to celebrate this exciting evening. Then, you’re escorted to your own private table, either raised, or a traditional mat style on the floor.
Learn what makes this the best Hawaiian Lūʻau across all of the islands. Get serenaded by local musicians playing island melodies on the ‘ukulele. Take a seat, order a drink, and settle in for an evening of entertainment, Hawaiian culture, bright clothing, and oh, so much food. We have a rule that nobody goes hungry at the Hawaiian Lūʻau Maui visitors rank at the top of their list.
The stunning west side of Maui offers the best Hawaiian sunset view. Take epic photos and enjoy oranges, reds, and pinks with silhouettes of palm trees dancing in the tropical breeze as the sun settles in for the night. Watch the sun sink into the ocean as the tiki torches are lit and the food and drink service begins. Out of all the places to attend a Hawaiian Lūʻau, Lāhainā, Maui does not disappoint.
Due to current guidelines, the buffet option has been replaced with a taste of EVERYTHING delivered right to your table. This authentic Hawaiian Lūʻau starts with crispy kalo (taro) and sweet potato chips and flavorful kalo hummus to dip them in. For a sweet palate cleanser, try the silky coconut haupia and sweet kūlolo.
Next, enjoy a fresh local greens salad with a breadbasket and honey-guava butter to slather it with. Diving in for an ono taste of Hawaiian food, you’ll get a sample of the kālua pig roasted underground in an imu among hot stones, lau lau (bundles of pork and taro leaves), fresh ʻahi poke, and salty lomilomi salmon that goes perfectly with freshly pounded poi
The food keeps coming with the main courses—samples of steak, chicken, fish, and veggies with an island twist. A sweet potato mash and poi round out the meal at the Hawaiian Lūʻau with the most generous servings.
After some unmatched entertainment and storytelling, enjoy coffee and/or tea with Mango Coconut Chocolate Bombe & Macadamia Coconut Crunch with Mango Anglaise.
Drinks are free-flowing throughout the night for guests 21+. Special meal requests for vegetarian and/or Vegan options are available with 24 hour advanced notice.
Feel the beat of the pahu, the Hawaiian drums, through your body as the stage entertainment begins and the story of Hawaii is told through dance. This musical and mystical performance begins with early migration to the islands. The story continues with ancient hula and chants to communicate with the gods in the heavens. The next intricate dance tells of the missionaries and celebrates the influential King Kalākaua. The final dance is inspired by the new waves of tourism and immigrants to the Hawaiian islands. The costumes in each dance are detailed, beautiful, and accentuate the graceful movements of the best hula dancers on Maui. Old Lāhainā Lūʻau is known for having some of the most talented entertainers on the island.
You’ll feel a sense of fullness after attending the Old Lāhainā Lūʻau, and that’s not just your ʻōpū, or belly. The overall ambiance of this event will leave you more knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture, the food, and the cultural traditions. Grab a delicious banana bread snack on the way out and reflect on the incredible story that is Hawaiʻi. Make sure to take photos throughout the night to share the memory of this authentic Hawaiian Lūʻau Maui style with friends and family. This is definitely a memorable evening to share and experience again and again.
