Grand Wailea Luau – Premium Seating
$140.00 BOOK NOW
The Grand Wailea Luau is a thoughtful presentation of the legends of Maui. The mermaid of Maui, Karnataka, swooned near the surfers and tried to capture them for fun. The dance of Naulu is a love story – the goddess of the clouds could only visit her lover Kanaloa in the uplands that embraced the clouds of Ulupalakua. These stories of ancient Hawaii create an exciting evening of traditional chant and hula that bring the history of Maui to life. Enjoy an evening of magical enchantment at Honua’ula and discover the culture, history, and legends Hawaii. The Honua’ula Luau begins this fun-filled evening with ancient Hawaiian games and crafts from local artisans, a photo opportunity, and the Imu Ceremony. As the sun sets, the magic of Maui comes alive with the dances that portray the legends, myths, and stories of ancient Hawaii. With colorful costumes, the beat of the Pau Drum, your evening journeys to the past. The Grand Wailea Luau is a presentation of the history of Maui. The only dance not associated with the island of Maui is the Samoan fire knife dance. All the other dances tell the story of Maui.
The show moves through the demi-god Maui with the creation of Maui and spiritually of Haleakala. The Grand Wailea Luau includes aerials to the right of the stage. Since Ulalena came to Maui, everyone believes aerials are the in thing. Well, that’s okay as a little magic in a luau is wonderful. And Maui is filled with magic.
When the Honua’ula Luau was at the Wailea Marriott it was considered the best luau on the south side. The luau earned many awards for their show. The tradition continues at the Grand Wailea as the Honua’ula Luau has redesigned the show with a fresh look.
These are the best seats. The stage is rather low to the ground, so to ensure the best viewing of the show, premium seating is the best selection. As with the standard seating the tables extended beyond the sides of the stage so you should arrive early to get the best seats.

We got the discount standard passes from Costco.
We liked that it was something that we had not been to before and was "cool" according to my 14 year old son.
Food quality was above average in our opinion though we don't really have a lot to compare to but in general it was above average. The open bar was somewhat limited but free liquor is always a good thing!
The setup was nice, though, I would have liked to have known that I didn't have to be there with the entire party to "check-in" to get a nice table assignment so, if you do go, and stay nearby nearby, have one person from your party get there about 30 minutes early, get your table assignment, then come back when the tables actually open.
Otherwise, enjoy Maui!
Top notch! The food and drinks were good and there's a decent show while you're eating. The show after dinner is where it's really at though. Great story telling and beautiful music.
I'd like to know the name of the song for the rain cloud over Haleakala, I may have had some sand in my eye during that part ;)
I personally thought the show was disappointing. It was an okay performance but after reading reviews, I was expecting more. The highlight was the singular fire dancer at the end. He did give a really good performance but that was 15 minutes of the show. I would not recommend this show and I will not return to this luau.
if you want more detail-
the food was really good. As someone who doesn’t eat pork, there was still plenty for me to eat. The chicken and rice were the highlights in my opinion. They also had poke, which I didn’t try but my husband and others at our table raved about it. The drinks were also very good, and trust me a few are needed for this.
I was a bit annoyed that at one point the narrator forgot her lines and just stopped talking mid-story and left the stage. I get that it’s embarrassing, and I feel for her, but the story is half the show!
Also, the brochure is quite misleading. There were no dancers on stilts. There was no 4-man knife fire dance. There were however 4 men putting out fires with their butts. That was pretty funny but not what’s advertised.
Basically everyone gave a good show but nothing was exceptional. Nobody seemed to really master their performance.
Definitely worth doing a luau the first time in Hawaii! We got the vouchers through Costco and I feel like that discount made it worth it. It was fun watching the performances and learning about traditions, language, and stories about Hawaii all while watching the sunset. All you can drink/eat was awesome too.
It was a really nice show. At the beginning they have a couple demonstrations, including a henna tattoo stand and learning to play the ukulele. I didn't like the henna station, they just stamp you with either a turtle or flower shaped design. The staff was very friendly. The buffet was great too, so much variety.
