Pricing & Availability


Experience the tastes and sights of Hawaiian culture and history with the Wailele Polynesian Luau at the oceanfront Westin Maui in Ka’anapali. You’ll enjoy an all-you-can-eat feast of Hawaiian cuisine, an open bar, emceed entertainment with laugh-out-loud audience participation, and authentic performances with vibrant costumes from Hawaii, Fiji, Tahiti, New Zealand and Samoa culminating in the exciting fire-knife dance. All of this takes place in an open-air pavilion adjacent to the beach and with a backdrop of cascading waterfalls among palm trees and tiki torches.

2019 DATES: At this time, the only way to book a 2019 date is to choose a date in 2018 and make a note at checkout what 2019 date you want to book (Sundays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays, except Jan 1), and you will be confirmed for that date via email. A benefit of this way is that you can lock in 2018 prices before a potential 2019 price increase. Otherwise, you could check back in October and book then once the 2019 schedule has been officially released.

Guidebook Reviews

Maui Revealed Guidebook:

A luau can be a blast, and, if your time allows for one, they are highly recommended. The better ones are at the higher price end, and you should book them in advance.

Westin Luau’s food is good, the lit palm trees behind the stage provide an alluring backdrop, they have the best open bar, and they have a great fire knife finale.

Fodor's Guidebook:

Luaus are a major attraction. You get what you pay for, and many of the best book weeks or months in advance, so reserve early. Plan your luau night early on in your trip to help you get into the Hawaiian spirit.

Moon Guidebook:

Attending a luau is like going to dinner theater. It’s a good opportunity to try a lot of local foods at once. If you really enjoy a good Broadway show, then you might enjoy a luau, and kids seem to love them.

Of the numerous luaus in Ka’anapali, the best show is at the Westin Maui. The fire dancers here are the best, and the food is above average.
