Old Lahaina Lu‘au

Strictly Hawaiian

The Old Lahaina Lu‘au is Maui’s most Hawaiian. It takes place on its own grounds near Mala Wharf, a place that seems isolated in the South Pacific. But it’s just across the road from a bustling mall near the center of Lahaina. It seems intimate, even though as many as 440 guests will enjoy the sunset view, dinner and show with you. Maui visitors consistently rate it the island’s top lu‘au in Maui News and other polls.

The lavish buffet runs to about 20 traditional dishes, plus drinks and dessert. You’ll even find pork two ways, roasted in the underground imu or laulau, wrapped in a leaf. Vegetarians will be happy with several choices. Old Lahaina Lu‘au belongs to the same group the runs Star Noodle and Aloha Mixed Plate so the food will be tops.

The entertainment dramatizes Hawaiian history from settlement to the present day. It begins with the arrival of the Polynesians to Hawai‘i. Singers and dancers perform the old-style kahiko hula  to chants and the gourd drum. Then performers trace the influence of missionaries, King David Kalakaua, immigrants and even tourists.

Seating is reserved in order of reservation. You may choose to sit on cushions at a low table near the front, or at a regular table.
