THE BEST OF HAWAII - Jacelyn Fujii
The Old Lahaina has limited seating. All seats are reserved so. . . please make your reservations as far in advance as possible. Make your reservations as early as possible for the best seating.
The Old Lahiana Luau is in Lahiana Town about a fifty minute drive from the Kihei Coast. This luau does not have hotel shuttle service, fire dance or premium up front reserved seating. This is one of the most successful luaus on Maui. Unfortunately, some of the success has weakened the quality of the staff and the luau. Reviews are becoming mixed. One posting on Yahoo indicates a new trend for this luau.
"Bad choice Right from the wait in the parking lot the staff was pushy and rude. The food was average and the show was slow. Many people left before it was over. This was the worst Laua I've been to in Maui". by A Yahoo! User from California 01/12/05.
"2006 rates are outrageous. Asking a family with two children under four years old to pay around $62.00 per child is way out of our budget. Old Lahaina has turned into a rich man's luau". User from Bay Area, 09/4/05

The Old Lahaina Lu'au takes great pride in presenting an authentic evening of traditional Hawaiian food, music and dance. Visitor and resident alike will appreciate an evening that reflects with taste and tradition the rich culture and history of the Hawaiian islands.
The unique setting for the luau was once the royal compound of the great kings of Hawaii. Guests relax under stately palms with a three island sunset view and the sailboats of the Lahaina roadstead as a backdrop.
This very spot was once reserved for Hawaiian royalty and their guests. Aloha Greeting: Guests are individually greeted with a fresh flower led, a tropical drink, and a souvenir program, and are escorted to their reserved seats. Professional photographers are available for photos (no obligation to purchase), as lei making and crafts are demonstrated. Imu Presentation: Guests may gather around as the Kalua pig is unearthed from the "imu", our traditional Hawaiian oven built at the water's edge.
We invite interested visitors to stop by the beach between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. to witness the heating of the special lava rocks and the burying of the pig on luau mornings.
The Feast (Paine Ahi Ahi): Hosts and Hostesses are available to explain and assist guests in our buffet line. The bountiful buffet includes Kialua roast pork, Pulehu (grilled) sirloin steaks & chicken, mahi mahi, sweet potato, rice, a variety of salads & fresh fruits, banana bread and Hawaiian specialties such as poke, haupia, chicken long rice, and lomi lomi salmon. Dessert is served at the table. Every attempt has been made to make this a memorable evening for everyone. During dinner music is provided by our band, Nalu, along with our beautiful hula dancers.
Entertainment: As the sun sets, it is time to start the evening's main entertainment. Our multi-talented ensemble will take our guests on a musical journey from "Old Hawaii" to the present time. We are proud to present Hula as it was meant to be performed, with love and reverence. The program is informative as well as entertaining. We begin with Kahiko (ancient) hula accompanied by chanting and ancient style instruments. As each era in Hawaiian history is touched upon, the guests will experience the mood and story of the times. Imaginative costumes, lively hula and beautiful song combine to create an evening filled with the magic and spirit of Aloha. E Komo Mai...
