The Grand Luau at Honua’ula takes place at The Grand Wailea Hotel on the beautiful south shore of Maui. This luau is one of few that takes table reservations so you can avoid the long wait in line. Instead, arrive early to check in before the grounds open and then take some time to explore the gorgeous grounds of this stunning hotel. Return after the line has dissipated to be escorted to your table by a seating captain.
Once inside, you will be greeted with lei and then you can take photos with the cast members, grab a mai tai, learn to hula, and check out the traditional imu ceremony. When the buffet opens, you can fill your plate with delectable Hawaiian dishes like Lomilomi salmon, shoyu chicken, macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi and teriyaki sirloin steak. Don’t hesitate to try some poke and make sure you get some kalua pig after watching the Hawaiians pull it out of the ground in the imu ceremony. Poi is an important part of Hawaiian culture and, although you may only try it once, it might surprise you. Here’s a tip: it goes really well with the lomilomi salmon. Don’t forget to save room for dessert. This may be the only place you’ll find guava mousse or traditional Hawaiian haupia (coconut pudding). If neither of those appeal to you, try the pineapple upside down cake or chocolate brownie.
With a full and happy belly, sit back and enjoy the show. The Honua’ula luau takes you back to old Hawaii and the stories of seafaring Polynesians and the Gods and Goddesses who informed and guided their lives. From Pele, the Goddess of fire who created these lands from the belly of the Earth to Kananaka, the mermaid of Maui who swooned near the surfers, trying to catch them for her own pleasure, these chants and dances paint a picture and evoke a feeling of a magical time and place, at Honua’ula.
