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. Known for their children’s buffet bar you can be assured that your kids will eat and you will be amazed at the immense variety of delicious food.

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.
Lots of people at the show seemed to enjoy it but I would assume it was their first time attending such an event. We paid to upgrade to VIP, with that we got seated first. As the Luau was only 1/4-1/2 sold out that wasn’t much of an upgrade. There was no other benefit that we saw. In fact, the souvenir photo background was actually worse if you were VIP as you were standing in front of the wooden sign and the “regular” ticket got a beautiful sunset backdrop. The buffet had a very small selection of food, not the pork cooked that evening, beef, chicken, rice, green salad with 2 dressings, corn, a couple “salads”, a potato, noodles, rolls, poi, and 3 desserts; none of it being delicious. The open bar was nice and free flowing but as a non drinker that really provided no great benefit. On to the show, which lasted less than an hour with all of the breaks. There were two stages, one upfront (great for VIP) and the other across the venue (can’t hardly see from VIP seats). The costumes were as cheap and mediocre as the production. The only positive thing I would say was the staff was very friendly. Ending thought: not worth the price of admission keep looking if you want a good show with good food.
The luau itself was good. I guess I just picture in my head that a luau would be on the beach. The food was really good. They had steak, chicken, pork, and traditional Hawaiian food. It was all you could drink included in the price so that was good. The fire part of the show was the best part and that was at the end. All and all it was a good show, I just wish it would have been on the beach like I had pictured it in my head. That is why I gave it 4 stars.
Was expecting more with pulling the pig out of the hole. Wasn't real. Entertainment was weak. Food was good. Suggest a different venue. Our last one was on The Big Island. The Big Island rocks. Been setting here for 20 minutes waiting for the "show". Way too disappointed. I originally rated it 2 stars but now have changed it to 1.
A fun Maui luau. Nothing blew us away, but we enjoyed the music, dance & fire show. The food was buffet style and all-you-can-drink of prepared drinks. The drinks were bottom shelf cocktails, but understandable for the amount of guests & price. Service was slow, again due to the amount of guests. We had to book this luau last minute (3 days prior) so this luau will not be a first choice next time, but still a lot of fun!
I booked this luau on Christmas Day because all of the other luaus were full. I went there with an mind opened. The food was ok for buffet food. The entertainment was lacking the WOW factor. Nothing against the entertainers but other luaus I have seen in Maui were better. The management of the luau might need to invest in better costumes to help with the WOW factor tourist are paying for.
