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.

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 Wailea Marriott Luau is located right along the ocean and features expansive ocean views as the ocean itself is the backdrop of the main stage. Te Au Moana at the Marriott is a more traditional luau show featuring live musical accompaniment, and we appreciate the live music emphasis rather than the use of taped soundtracks. It makes a difference in the feeling of the authenticity.
