Not a day goes by without someone asking “which is the best lua’u on Maui?”
Food is always a deeply personal subject, and while it’s my job to give you advice about Maui restaurants, this is one of the areas where I feel most tentative in being categorical.
Depending upon your personality and several other factors, our answer changes. In fact we dedicate an entire section of the Top Maui Tips chapter in our book Top Maui Restaurants to whether or not you should attend a luau or perhaps one of the other excellent Maui entertainment options (Ulalena comes to mind).
So without copying and pasting an entire chapter into this post, I’ll cut to the chase: our two recommendations follow.
Each is a completely different experience, and I would say that if you loved one you might actually not love the other. So choose wisely:
Should you go to a luau at your hotel? Maybe … if you just want to fall into bed afterward (or into the pool) and avoid driving or paying for cab fare.
Have you been to our two lua’us? Review them on their official pages on this website and let other readers know what you think:
