What’s the difference between each Maui Luau?

All of our Maui luaus are impressive and leave long-lasting valuable memories, though there are quite a few similarities between them including show type, food/drink service, music, VIP seating,  pre-show activities ocean views, and ceremonies.  That being said, we’ve listed some crucial differences to help you choose the best Maui luau for you and your family.

  • Location – All Maui luaus are on the south or west side of Maui. You’ll want to choose one close to where you’re staying.
  • Price – Maui luaus range from $185-$280/seat before taxes/fees. Most luaus stay around $200 after everything, with the exception of the Andaz, Marriott, and Grand Wailea Luaus.
  • Styles – Each Maui luau has a special reason to visit.  Ex. The Grand Luau prides itself on having a Maui-style show.  The Andaz Luau does table service and showcases their chef’s skills.

What does VIP seating at a Maui Luau consist of?  

VIP seating or Premium seats allow guests to enter a little earlier, some offer upgraded leis, and all give VIPs tables within the first 2 rows of tables next to the stage.
