Kaanapali Maui Nui Luau – Premium Seating
$132.00 BOOK NOWBest Price Guarantee
Your Kaanapali Maui Nui Luau begins with a Polynesian greeting followed by an escort to your table. In the tradition of Hawaiian culture, ancient games from the past are laid out on the grounds and you can test your skills. There are several to enjoy. Poi balls and the spear throwing are the most popular. The Kaanapali Maui Nui Luau is located center court in the beautiful Sheraton Maui Hotel & Spa. The Maui Nui Luau has the best sunsets of any luau in Kaanapali. With a low hedgerow separating the luau grounds from the beach path the Sheraton Luau has an open space concept creating an ambience that is fresh and alluring. With the echo of the Conch Shell the torches are lit and the cliff divers at Black Rock signal the opening ceremonies with the arrival of your host for the evening. Under the direction of Barry Kim an evening of magic unfolds as the hula dancers tell the story of Hawaii from the ancient pre-contact era to modern hula. Your journey through the history of Hawaii is both magical and entertaining. Kaanapali Maui Nui Luau is a Polynesian Revue with hula dancing spanning all the island chains that represent the culture of Polynesia. Attired in authentic handmade costumes from each island group the hula dancers weave a story of magic surrounding the myths, legends, and history of how Hawaii came to be. The Samoan fire-knife dance is a dramatic conclusion to the show. Seating arrangements at the Sheraton Luau are different than any other luau in Kaanapali. Moving away from the traditional regimental (long tables) style seating, the Sheraton has round tables. Each table can seat 9 guests. Regardless of the seating style, seats are first come, first serve. You want to sit facing the stage. In order to secure these seats, you should arrive early. You may wait in line a little longer, but the tradeoff is well worth the wait.
Long ago, when Kaanapali was young, the Sheraton was the only luau in Kaanapali. The beach was wider, there were oceanfront properties that were still vacant, and the Whaler was brand spanking new. My how times have changed. Through the years the Sheraton has been one of the top luaus in Maui.
Premium seating is the first row of tables. There are only about 5 rows of tables. Although the luau grounds are deep, this luau is the smallest in Kaanapali in terms of the overall guest count.
The menu at the Maui Nui Luau is simple, yet diverse. The quality lives up to the standard you would expect from the Sheraton Hotel. Below is a sample of what you can expect to see on the buffet tables.

Awesome food... the fish, the steak, even the bread, and salad.. We loved the smaller size of guests. The fire dancer was phenomenal. This is our third try of Luaus in Maui, and by far our favorite one. Just for the food alone, it will be hard to try a different one next time.
The food was delicious and the entertainment that we got to see was really good, unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, but this isn't why I'm giving two stars. I'm giving two stars because they didn't have out ponchos until it had already been raining for 20 minutes at least so by the time we got them we were cold and drenched. Then, they called the show off like 5 minutes after we put the ponchos on and the rain stopped no less than 5 minutes later on our way back to our room. We were definitely disappointed, especially because we paid $150/person for a not so once-in-a-lifetime experience. Oh, and we didn't get any sort of refund for them calling off the show so make sure you look at all your luau options before booking one.
We have been to several luaus on Maui (Drums of the Pacific, the one at the Hyatt, Feast at Lele, and the Grand Wailea) and this was one of our favorites. Fun activities for kids, good food, entertaining show, and you can’t beat the setting! It was nice that everyone go real flower leis. No complaints— great night!
Good entertainment and food. Beautiful beachside venue. Fun activities for kids before show starts.
I guess you have to do a luau when in Maui, but at 250 for 2 people, I would have expected a bit more. The leis were pretty and there were a few different activities to do. The fire spinning was cool and the hulas were beautiful. The food was plentiful, mostly good. The area is not covered, so be prepared to be hot for a good hour until the sun goes down (or until you eat). The first show we scheduled got rained on, but luckily they rescheduled us and the second show stayed dry!
