As you arrive…
Your luau offers complimentary valet parking with validation from the luau, so please don’t forget to present your valet ticket for validation at the luau check-in. This is a very large property, so be ready for a 10-minute walk to the luau grounds. Upon check-in you’ll have the opportunity to choose your table. The check-in staff will be available from 4 pm. Seating is assigned on a “first come, first served” basis, so the sooner you arrive, the better your seats will be! You won’t need to hang out and wait around; instead, you can walk around the beautiful resort grounds or even relax at the Molokini Bistro Restaurant and enjoy your favorite beverage before returning to the luau grounds by 5 pm. Along with your table tickets, you will receive discount coupons should you decide to enjoy a drink before entering the luau.
Once at your table…
Find your seats, start sipping on your favorite beverage and go explore! You’ll notice the beautiful surroundings, allowing for awesome picture opportunities. As you walk around you’ll get to visit with local artisans, play Hawaiian lawn games (kids’ favorite!) and witness the unveiling of the Kalua Pua’a (Kalua Pig), cooked the traditional Hawaiian way, in the Imu (pit). Your waiters will be coming around taking drink orders or you’re welcome to walk up to any of the bars to get your own beverages.
Dinner is served…
Soon after you return to your table, you’ll be invited to the buffet where you’ll find all sorts of delicious Hawaiian dishes. Come with an empty stomach so you can do as we do it here in Hawaii… We don’t eat until we are full, but until we are tired! You’ll find several salads, entrees and desserts. Come back as often as you’d like!
The Grand Wailea Luau features a bonus acrobatics segment not offered by any other luau on Maui. You’ll be taken on a journey of legends and stories told through beautiful hula, exciting drumming and exotic dances of Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand and will culminate with an awesome Samoa fire-knife dance performance!
