Te Au Moana (the ocean’s tide) at Wailea Marriott Luau presents the culture of Hawaiians and Polynesians in food, song, and dance. The ocean’s tide links together the generations of the two cultures. Polynesians have immense knowledge of the earth, ocean and their life giving elements. Wailea Marriott Luau masterfully demonstrates and shares the Polynesian’s expert skill in fishing, gift giving, gathering, romance, and tapa making.

Upon arriving at the luau, each guest receives a fresh flower lei or a wooden fishhook necklace. As you stroll through the grounds, experience Hawaiian games, flower crafting, artisans displaying works of tapa cloth and wood carving, and more. Before dinner, watch the kalua pig is dug up from an underground oven, which is known as the Imu Ceremony.

The evening’s buffet includes imu baked kalua pork, grilled teriyaki steaks, shoyu chicken, sauteed fresh island fish, stir fry vegetables, Hawaiian sweet potatoes, poi, and a variety of salads (Kula greens, tropical fruit compote, and salads with an Asian flair). Also included is an open bar for beer, wine, Mai Tais, and other mixed drinks. Don’t forget about the desert bar!

Feast as the peaceful ocean serenades you…Dance as the stars glisten in the Maui night sky…Discover as the song and dance brings the stories of the Pacific to life. Te Au Moana at Wailea Marriott Luau is presented by Tihati Productions, Hawaii’s premier entertainment company.

CWailea Marriott Luauruise Ship Passengers

NCL Pride of America cruise ship passengers who come into Kahului are not able to do this luau because it is not held on Sunday nights. This luau isn’t practical for Lahaina cruise ship passengers due to the distance from the harbor. There are other luau options that are much closer in West Maui.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

A luau is a must-do event for the first-time Hawaii visitor. Personally, I never get tired of good food, open bar, sunset views, and Hawaiian music and dance.

The most important thing about attending a luau is WHERE YOU SIT!!! You are much better off sitting up front at the second best luau than sitting in the back at the best luau. Read that again and let it sink in! If you are ordering a few weeks before your vacation, go with PREMIER reserved seating at one of the luaus that offer that option. It is really nice to be able to walk in the luau grounds a few minutes before the show starts knowing that you’ll be able to sit in the first few rows of tables and not get stuck way in the back!

This luau offers premium seating upgrade, which we think is very much worth the price. BUT YOU HAVE TO RESERVE IT prior to your arrival, so make your reservation NOW!

The Wailea Marriott Luau is located right along the ocean and feature expansive ocean views. This luau faces the ocean when you are looking at the stage. Te Au Moana at the Marriott is a more traditional luau show featuring live musical accompaniment.

Another South Maui Luau option is  Grand Wailea Luau. If you are interested in West Maui Luaus, we suggest Royal Lahaina Luau, The Westin Wailele Polynesian Luau, Hyatt Luau, and Sheraton Kanaapali Sunset Luau.
