As you arrive…
You’ll be greeted with warm aloha, one of their beautiful specialty leis made with fresh flowers or wood-carved necklaces (when fresh leis are unavailable). You’ll be taken to your table, and your waiters will start the drink service. You’ll notice the beautiful grounds, the short distance to the beach, the incredible ocean views, and the famous Kaanapali Black Rock. Guests in the General Seating will be seated on a first-come-first-served basis, while Premium Seating guests will have their seats pre-reserved on either the first or second row of tables.
Let the celebration begin…
Before dinner service begins, you will have ample time to walk around the grounds, visit local artists, take pictures by the beach overlooking the Black Rock, and witness the traditional Imu Ceremony as the Kalua Pua’a (Kalua Pig) is unveiled. You will also get a unique opportunity to witness the lighting of the torches by a Hawaiian warrior who will end his task by diving off the top of the Black Rock at sunset. So, don’t forget your camera!
It’s Kau Kau time!
It’s time to eat… or in pidgin Hawaiian, it’s “Kaukau time”!! The Maui Nui Luau at Black Rock is hosted by the Sheraton Maui, which has some of the best chefs on the island, so you can be confident you will find plenty of delicious treats at their traditional Hawaiian buffet, featuring all sorts of salads, hot or cold entrees, and of course mouthwatering desserts. Don’t forget your waiters will be coming by to refresh your drinks, so relax and enjoy your Hawaiian feast!
We saved the best for last!
Throughout their show, the Maui Nui Luau will tell you the story of Maui, our beautiful island paradise named after the Hawaiian demigod Maui, who, legend says, lifted the heavens from the earth so men could walk tall. He slowed the sun’s path and discovered the secret of fire. You will also be in awe of the caliber of dancers, live musicians, and singers as they perform traditional dances of our sister Polynesian islands of Samoa, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Samoa. The grand finale will feature a breathtaking fire-knife dance that will blow your socks off!
