The Te Au Moana Luau has resumed operating luaus on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, .

Reserve Now!!! The ocean’s tide links the generations of Hawaiians and Polynesians together, and Te Au Moana (the ocean’s tide) is an extraordinary luau experience presenting those cultures in food, song, and dance. The Polynesians have great knowledge of the earth and ocean and its life giving elements. Their expert skill in fishing, gathering, gift giving, romance, and tapa making are brilliantly demonstrated and shared at Maui’s newest luau experience.

Te Au Moana is resuming operations and taking MANY steps to protect the safety and health of luau attendees. All tables will be COMPLETELY PRIVATE for just your party, and tables will be socially distanced from one another. Since it is just your party at the table, the meal will be served in three courses and presented to the table “Family Style.” Due to the limited capacity of the luau, the minimum table charge is two paying guests.

After dinner you’ll discover the fascinating stories of the Pacific through song and dance presented by Tihati Productions, Hawaii’s premier entertainment company. The show will take you on a journey throughout Polynesia, and culminate with a spectacular Samoan Fire Knife dance.

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 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.
