Some say the best Maui luau is the best luau in the world. For my family, there is one luau that outshines them all on Maui...The Old Lahaina Luau!
When Kim and I made our first trip to the island, we planned well ahead of time. One of the long term plans was making sure we had the BEST Maui luau experience we could have. To make sure we got in during our visit, we got our reservations 7 MONTHS in advance.
Why so far in advance??
Because Old Lahaina Luau sells out every night of every week of every year. It has do so for years!! So the ONLY reservations I have about suggesting this truly spectacular event (because that's what it is) is to make your plans early and make your reservations as soon as you know you'll be visiting Maui!

There are several luaus that are performed in a variety of locations in Maui. And if you are discerning and wish to experiment and try them, I encourage you to do so. But if you are looking to go to just one....go to the best Maui luau: Give Old Lahaina Luau a chance. You won't be disappointed.
Wait a minute! Don't go yet!
