Upon your arrival…
Valet parking is included in your luau package, so please don’t forget to present your valet ticket for validation at the luau when you 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 within the Premium-VIP tier of the luau, which has the two first rows of tables. Seating is assigned on a “first-come, first-served” basis, but don’t worry, you’ll be seated in the VIP section! If you’re really picky as far as where you are going to sit, you may want to arrive as early as 4 pm in order to choose your table with the check-in staff. You won’t need to stick around after that, as your seats will be reserved, so instead, you may walk around the beautiful resort grounds or head straight down to 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, get started on your favorite beverage, and go explore the grounds! Don’t forget your camera, as you will have plenty of opportunities to take some awesome pictures. You will get to visit with local artists, join the cast and kids as they play Hawaiian lawn games, 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. With your Grand Wailea Luau VIP package, you’ll have priority at the buffet. There you will find all sorts of delicious Hawaiian dishes! Here in Hawaii, we don’t eat until we are full, we eat until we are tired, so come hungry! You’ll find several salads, entrees, and desserts. Come back as often as you’d like!
The Grand Wailea Luau is an exquisite production and features a bonus acrobatics segment not offered by any other luau on Maui. Your Polynesian revue will take you on a journey of stories and legends 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!
