Kevin's Activity Tips:
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!
The Royal Lahaina is now assigning ALL seats in advance ... even those in the general admission setting. We used to tell general admission people to get to the luau early to get the best general admission seats they could. That doesn't apply now. It doesn't matter what time you arrive at your luau ... your seat has already been assigned. What does matter is WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR RESERVATION. The further in advance your reservation is made the better your seats are going to be, so reserve your luau seats now!!!
The Myths of Maui Luau at Royal Lahaina resort is a good choice (and affordable) for families ... at least in the general seating section. VIP seats do get a little pricier as the upgrade fee applies to all seats, even to infants 5 and under who would be completely free in general admission. This luau has a little more of a "local flavor" and they've done quite a grand finale with their Samoan fire dance at the end of the show. In addition to the main double fire knife dancer they also have two other kane with single fire knifes and several wahine twirling fire poi balls. It's a great photo op at the end of your evening!
