The good: The location of the Grand Wailea (and the adjacent beach) is AMAZING! The luau is just off the beach, separated only by a row of bushes. The food gives diners a taste of Hawaii and it's rich culture (haupia, steak, pina coladas). There...More

Our family really enjoyed this Luau! Richard, our server, was great. Drinks were brought to us quickly (no standing in a long bar line). Food delicious, setting was gorgeous and right next to us at The Grand Wailea.

The luau was great! Food was good, entertainment was awesome! We got premium seating which got us a table up front. You won't regret it!

No, I asked about a discount but none were available to my knowledge. Only discount was "buying tickets from COSTCO."
Has anyone used the Mauihawaiiluau. com to book a luau? I was trying to book the one at Grand Wailea for April 21 and their website says there are no seats left. When I go to this website it says there is and it's cheaper. Trying to figure out if this website is the real deal?

We got tickets at Costco there on Maui shortly before the day of the luau. Their tickets are discounted but no guarantee of availability.

not sure, but seemed out of place. I didn't know that when Polynesians came to the island they did acrobatics in the trees, lol
