Due to recent events in Lahaina, Our original Luau was cancelled. This particular event was our second choice after doing some research.
The location in Marriot was just outstanding, excellent Landscape and perfect Sunset background. Check in was smooth, received our fresh Lei's and we were escorted to our table (#5) to be exact, first row, center stage.
Our hostess for the show was magnificent, she was full of life, love and she made us feel the emotions of why were there. We are her family, her Ohana.
Food was great, all courses. All you can drink and open bar. good MaiTai's and craft beers.
Here is the main part... The show was everything we expected and then more. Fire dance, Maori Kapa Haka was also shown, It was magnificent and spectacular. Some companies don't include them. The dancers, the live musicians, the costumes it was perfect. Beautiful, Beautiful and Beautiful. The female Hostess was the perfect icing on the cake. She narrated everything flawlessly. Combine, the sound, the chants, the voices, the movements and the Sunset. Heaven came to Maui and stayed for a few hours. We were mesmerized by the perfection.
A few tips: So many choices out there, do your research. Get there EARLY. Why? There's Valet parking, we did self parking, not much parking left so we parked next to the Mall. It's FREE. There's a good 5-10 minutes walk from the Mall parking to Hotel Lobby, and another good 15 mins from the lobby to the event location. Walkway is spectacular with the Ocean View, Take your Photos now while its still Sunny. You'll see when you get there. Marriott itself has a very photogenic location. After the show, the performers will have a photo opportunity. Go for it.
As you leave, take your time walking back to the Hotel lobby, If the night is clear, enjoy the precious moments.
We opted for the Premium seating. Mahalo and I hope this helps you.
