The Myths of Maui – Royal Lahaina Luau
The Royal Lahaina Luau is on everyone’s shortlist of best luaus on Maui. With a beachside setting at the Royal Lahaina Resort in Kaanapali, this luau features the largest buffet menu, renowned fire-knife dancers as well as a special kid’s menu and a child-friendly rate. These are just a few of the amenities that separate the Royal Lahaina Luau from all other luaus in Maui. Join us for an evening of myths, legends, and tradition with a Polynesian Revue that spans the different cultures of Hawaii with dances from the islands that represent ancient Polynesia. The Royal Lahaina Luau is also known as “The Myths & Legends Show” and was the first Maui luau to introduce multiple fire-knife dancers to its show. The Royal Lahaina Luau is the longest running Maui luau. The show has evolved over the years as most luau shows do and is generally considered the best luau on the island by many. You can take home the memories with a souvenir photo that is taken when you enter the luau. There are local craftsmen’s offering handmade jewelry; traditional statue carving, local attire and much more that make great gifts. With a live Imu Ceremony and an audience participation with the lovely hula dancers, your evening under the stars will be long remembered after you return home. The exciting conclusion to your evening of entertainment is 7 fire dancers with some twirling poi balls igniting the night with circles of fire!
VIP Seating – Treat Yourself
The best seating is VIP. This is the first row of seats directly in front of the stage. The VIP section tables are spaced a little further apart providing a little more room to move around. It also gives you early entry into the luau grounds.
Royal Lahaina Luau Menu
The buffet is legendary. It’s the largest buffet out of any luau and the only one that caters to children. Even during the challenging years for the visitor industry, the Royal Lahaina Resort has never removed selections from the buffet line as other Maui luaus have done.

Tip of the Day:
The only seats you don’t want at the Royal Lahaina Luau are the seats along the hedgerow that separates the luau grounds from the beach as they are too angled for good views of the stage.
We went to this luau 5 years ago and it was fantastic and used this luau to compare others but the today it was disappointing. The value was good and the show and dancers were good but some thing just didn't make sense.
The first thing that didn't make sense was the starting time. The sunset was at 5:50 pm but they don't open the gates until 6. The luau is right on the beach which would be great to watch the sunset and take photos. Why have the west facing beach for the luau if you don't open until after sunset?
Once they allow you inside and show you to your table the buffet was already in progress. The food was good and plenty. The next thing that didn't make sense was after you ate they then had the ceremony to bring the pig out of the pit. This makes me wonder how old was the pork I ate?
The show was your typical luau show. The dancers are talented and perform a nice show however it seemed a little rushed and shorter than others I have seen. They advertise this show as a fire show so I expected a little longer fire dance. It was nice to see them include the women dancers into the fire dancing.
It is difficult to recommend this show because of the start time and the little things that didn't make sense but if you're staying in west Maui and don't want a long drive it is a good option.
Great experience, we loved the story telling and all of the dancing. Gave it 4 stars opposed to 5 because the fire poi was short lived. We would have loved to see more than 6-10 minutes of the fire spinning. Otherwise the show was fantastic, food was great as well the pork was unbelievably juicy and good.
We were a large group and we all really enjoyed this luau. The food and drinks were excellent and the seating was very comfortable. The show was very well done and interesting from the beginning to the end. I don't understand why this show has received some of the negative reviews that I have read on various sites. I feel really lucky that we were able to book this luau at the last minute.
The performers were amazing: their energy, skills, and always smiling attitude made for a wonderful show. I particularly liked the story of the various island traditions and their unique dances. The fire dance was a spectacular finale. The food quality was average which is normal for any buffet, as well there was lots of variety so no excuses for leaving hungry. We signed up for the VIP tickets and while we did benefit an early buffet and free drinks (and sadly I was DD so didn't drink alcohol), the food lines went quickly for everyone and I didnt see too much value for the extra VIP charge (definitely worth is for the regular admission). When in Hawaii, one must do a luau and this is as good as any.
It was our first luau but overall we were satisfied with the food and the entertainment. Also the staff was very friendly and helpful. The drinks were flowing up until show time. Desserts could have been a little better. The view next to the ocean was great as well.
