Marriott New Year’s Eve Luau

The New Year’s Eve luau at the Marriott Wailea is an enchanting celebration that merges Hawaiian tradition with festive flair. Against the backdrop of Wailea’s pristine beaches and lush landscapes, guests are treated to an unforgettable evening of cultural performances, live music, and delectable island cuisine. The rhythmic beat of Polynesian drums fills the air, while hula dancers mesmerize with their graceful movements. Meanwhile, the aroma of roasted pig and tropical fruits tantalizes taste buds, promising a feast fit for royalty. With fireworks illuminating the night sky at midnight, the Marriott Wailea’s New Year’s Eve luau is a magical start to the year, leaving guests with cherished memories of Hawaiian hospitality and aloha spirit.


Located on the south Maui shores of the Wailea Marriott, guests will have the opportunity to sit back and appreciate tales of Hawaii’s Polynesian ancestors through pre-show activities like flower crafting and bookmark making, as well as luau entertainment like storytelling, a traditional Hawaiian imu ceremony, mesmerizing musical and dance performances, and tapa making, gift giving, fishing and gathering skill demonstrations.

A three course meal is included, with Hawaiian menu item options such as kalua pig, shoyu chicken, Hawaiian fried rice, lomi lomi salad, Molokai sweet potatoes, mac salad, grilled teriyaki steaks, seafood pasta, stir fried veggies, Kula greens, pineapple coleslaw, poi and locally-loved sweets like coconut haupia. Classic tropical cocktails are also offered on the open bar throughout the evening, and fire knife dancing is included.

What's the different between Standard, Premium, and the new Ohana Seating?

Since COVID, The Marriott Luau only offers one kind of seating, Ohana Seating. You’ll have your own private table for your party, and will be served 3-courses family-style. If things go back to how they were before COVID-19, tickets will be offered as standard or premium.

With premium seating your table will be in the first 2 rows, right up next to the stage. You’re also allowed to enter earlier than the standard guests. If you’re dead set on being in the first row, it’s best to come a bit early.

Check-in Time: Table assignments are given at 5pm (4:30pm from September 3rd-December 31st).

Check-in Location: On the Luau grounds at the Marriott Wailea Luau. 3700 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, HI 96753

Parking: Free self parking in the structure or valet parking for $40/vehicle.

COVID-19: ALL COVID restrictions have ended as of March 26, 2022.

Definitely check out Te Au Moana at the Marriott. The location was stunning, and the sunset views were epic. This is my 3rd time! I should have a punch card

Worth the Coin

My big splurge was the Marriott Luau in Maui and I was absolutely delighted by the whole experience. The event was held at a stunning outdoor venue that had gorgeous views of the ocean. It was worth the cash.

I have had the pleasure of attending multiple Luaus at the Marriott over the years and they always exceeded my expectations.
