The Old Lahaina Luau offers 2 types of seating; Tables with ‘traditional matt/pillows style seating’ (guaranteed front row seats!) or tables with chairs. You choose your seats when you make your Luau Reservations, which should be even before you buy your Airline Tickets to Hawaii! Old Lahaina is smart….they are not ‘first come, first served’; Old Lahaina seating policy is ‘first reservation = best seats’ in the tables and chairs section! Which is 1 reason Old Lahaina Luau can sell out 2-4 weeks out!
During the first hour, sip on a Maui Mai Ta or order a free Blue Hawaii drink and go wander the lush luau gardens.
As you stroll around the lush luau gardens, there will be several photo opportunities. Professional photographers are also on hand to take professional photos. I always recommend letting the photographers take your picture, as it is a great way to get a good family or romantic photo.
The tropical Oceanside setting, the long Outrigger Hawaiian Canoes, and the ‘Hale” – a Hawaiian Hut make for fun backdrops to your Hawaiian Photo.
As you wander around you will notice many Hawaiian flowers and plants such as the Ti-plant (used in the Lau Lau, Lu’au and other Hawaiian Dishes), Taro (for Poi!) as well as Hawaiian Flowers like Red Ginger, Bird of Paradise, Plumeria and more…
A few years ago the Old Lahaina Luau added in some INTERACTIVE Hawaiian cultural demonstrations! Adults and children alike can now try some of the Hula Instruments, learn to Dance the Hula or try the Ukulele (small Hawaiian guitar).
Just before dinner time, when everyone has entered the Luau grounds, I recommend making your way over to the traditional Imu (underground Oven) for the unearthing of the cooked ‘kalua’ Pig. (The Pig is put into the underground oven daily at 7:00 AM.; you are welcome to watch! Simply show up before that time and walk towards the back of the parking lot of the Old Lahaina Luau)
Why do we like the Old Lahaina Luau so much? Atmosphere, Atmosphere, Atmosphere! With some of the best Hawaiian Luau dancers in Hawaii!
Upon sunset, the evening’s main entertainment begins. Old Lahaina Luaus’ award-winning Hula Show tells the story of the ancient Hawaiians. The choreographers of Old Lahaina Luau dancers present the Hula as it was meant to be Performed, with the respect and honor of their Hawaiian Ancestors.
Beginning with the history of the Polynesian Migration to the Hawaiian Island; then to the ancient Hawaiian Hula, followed by the evolution to a more contemporary style of Hula.
~ Oteÿa- The Hula show 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 hula implements and is performed with respect for the ancestors.
~ Missionaries and the Merrie Monarch- The missionaries brought many changes. They present Hula depicting this era as well as celebrating King Kalakaua.
~Auana– The modern Hula was influenced by immigrants and tourism. Hula dancers tell their stories through their graceful moves, subtle eyes and lovely hula hand.
All this is a fancy way of saying the Old Lahaina Luau has the most dancers on stage at any given time, fabulous authentic costumes and attractive Hula dancers, both male and female! There is a bit of story/legend telling about Hawaiian Goddesses’ and handsome young warriors to fun Hula dances.
And yes as the years go by, Old Lahaina Luau has added in a bit of Tahiti at the end of the show. The Tahitian Hula dance is considered to be one of the most sensual hula dances of them all, with the swinging of the hips and the pulsing rhythm of the ancient Drums, which combine to create a titillating dance performance! (No Fire Knife Dancer at the Old Lahaina Luau, as it is a Samoan Dance)
