Most critics believe the best luaus on Maui are in either Lahaina or Kaanapali. They probably haven’t attended this Maui luau. If you are staying in Kihei or Wailea, it makes sense to avoid the long drive to the west side for a luau when the Te Au Moana is minutes away from where you are staying.
As the sun arks in the late afternoon, the sun’s reflection off the water is bright. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses, you will need them until the sun sets below the horizon line.
Regular seating is also called standard seating. The second row of tables and back is considered standard seating. They are great seats. The Wailea Marriott luau is the only luau where standard seating is as good as the premium seating. Why waste the cash on a seating upgrade when the regular seats are just as good?
The menu at the Marriott Te Au Moana Luau has all your favorites that live up to the standards you would expect from the Marriott Hotel.

Located in the Marriott Resort, in Maui. Selected premium seating package and was seated right by stage. It was worth the upgrade and you should book early. Great experience of Luau, traditional dress, activities, food and dances. The lineup was quite long to get in but they offered refreshments and were very organized ushering everyone in. There were crafts kiosks to purchase many different items and you received a beautiful lei or wooden turtle necklace as well as a picture with one of the dancers in traditional outfits.
You received an opportunity to participate in a few activities before the luau began. When the luau pig was unearthed you could go watch but they paraded the pig around the front and up the center aisle so it was best to stay in your seat and wait for this to get a great view. Premium seating were first to be served, a great plus because there are around 60 tables with 8 people seated. Don't worry because there was so much food and unlimited drinks as well as a desert plate that you do not leave hungry. The show was great and worth the visit. Amazing pic of the sunset. Highly recommend!!
The luau was a little cheesy but still really fun! All the side salads were very tasty and seemed authentic - Lot of choices to eat. Dancers we're cool and the MC was fun, beautiful sunset!
Loved every moment of our luau experience. Worth every penny. Great food, and the entertainment was great. Drinks were pretty good. We also got lucky with an awesome sunset. It was the cherry on top.
This was my first Luau so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It was easy to access via the Marriott, and the tables have a great view of the ocean, as well as the sunset. Open bar (bar rail drinks, don't come here expecting much) buffet-style Hawaiian cuisine, and great performances. There is ample food so you won't go hungry. The Emcee was extremely friendly and took the time to speak to me about recommendations she had for the rest of my visit to Maui.
Something about it just lacked authenticity, but that was to be expected. After all, this is a tourist area.
I paid a bit extra for the premium seating, which gives you a seat in one of the first two rows of tables. Overall, it was a fun atmosphere, but it lost a star because I would have been much more satisfied if the tickets were less expensive. I don't believe it was worth the $140US or so.
A “not to miss” luau at the Marriott. We paid extra for the reserved seats and it was well worth it. We were warmly greeted with beautiful flower leis and showed to our seats. After introducing ourselves to the other folk Les at the table and visiting the bar, the event started. We throughly enjoyed the food and the entertainment by theses amazing artist and dancers. The evening ended on a high note after the fires dancers ended their portion of the performance. We had heard from others that this was the best luau on the island and we both agree!
