Beginning with the history of the Polynesian migration, then to the ancient Hawaiian Hula, followed by the evolution to a more contemporary style Hula.
    ~ Ote'a- Our program begins with the early migration of the Polynesians across the Pacific to the new islands of Hawaii.
    ~ Kahiko- The ancient Hula was a way of communicating with the Gods. It is accompanied by chanting, and traditional implements and is performed with respect for our ancestors.

    Reviews From Maui to New York City

    Best Lu'au. Once again, five-time winner Old Lahaina Lu'au danced the hula past the other
    contenders. Guests relax under stately palms with views of boats and neighboring islands as a
    backdrop. Tiki torches light the way, thatched roofs take one back in time, and you may even sit
    on the ground on mats for traditional luau dining. The Old Lahaina Lu'au takes great pride in
    presenting an authentic evening of traditional Hawaiian food, music, dance and crafts. The
    evening reflects with taste and tradition the rich culture and history of the Hawaiian Islands.

    Hawaii Magazine, Best of Hawaii, Reader;s Survey

    Its authenticity, intimacy, hospitality, cultural integrity, and sheer romantic beauty have made
    this Maui's top Lu'au. Old Lahaina Lu'au staff, location, educational acuity, and quality of food
    and entertainment make it a Lu'au to which visitors return time and time again. Flickering
    torches, surreal sunsets, old milo and coconut trees, cultural sensitivity, romance and genuine
    hospitality these are the elements we can count on with the Old Lahaina Lu'au.
    Frommer's Guide to Maui

    This is the best Lu'au you'll find in Maui. It's small, personal, and authentic. It feels like an old
    seaside village. In addition to fresh fish and grilled steak, you'll get all-you-can-eat traditional
    Lu'au fare. Then there's the entertainment, featuring a musical journey from old Hawaii to the
    present with hula dancing, chanting, and singing.
    Fodor's Maui and Lanai

    This is our favorite Lu'au in all of Hawaii. Everything about it comes together just right, and it's
    as authentic as they come. The Lu'au feast and traditional entertainment both serve as a
    wonderful introduction to real island culture, and they're both terrific. Don't mistake this for a
    deadly dull history lesson its riveting entertainment and the performers are first-rate. The food
    is excellently prepared and well labeled (so you know what you're eating).
    Complete Idiot's Travel Guide to Hawaii

    The Old Lahaina Lu'au has reinvented itself authentically in a genre rife with cliche. At sunset,
    guests sit at tables or on lauhala fiber mats on the ground in front of a grass-mound stage. The
    program offers intelligent narration and excellent ancient hula. The food is authentic Hawaiian,
    and delicious.
