For a beachfront luau in Maui, you can't beat Drums of the Pacific. The mai tai's are endless, and so is the buffet, while the hospitality makes you feel like you’re not just watching the show but a part of the show!

"Fantastic Luau Evening"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Great evening all around. Attended with wife and 15 year old daughter, they both loved the evening. We purchased the VIP tickets (which are a little pricey but worth the extra). As VIPs you get seated first (right in front of the stage) and you get to go to the Luau Buffett first. The food was great, traditional Luau, pork, chicken and fish plus plenty of other items to accompany these. As VIPs they bring you your free drinks throughout the evening. The main entertainment starts around 7pm and is excellent. Sat at the front you not only have a great view for pictures/video but can also feel the heat from the fire dance!! On our night weather was fantastic (make sure you take sunglasses as it can be right in your face initially). The family had a great evening. Highly recommended

This was an evening to remember. Along with a great meal we got first class entertainment and also an insight into the history of Hawaii. The preparation and cooking for the luau was explained we saw the removal of the pig from the roasting pit and then enjoyed eating it along with many other local dishes. There was a side table with food small children enjoy so all were catered to. The entertainment that followed was superb including the opportunity to try the hula dance. There was an open bar for about 2 1\2hours and the serving staff were really good. I recommend this Luau to all.

We really enjoyed the Drums of the Pacific. Our kids wanted to a luau and we picked this one because of availability and location. We also had a local guide recommend it. The show itself was very good. Some numbers were better than others, but our kids enjoyed the whole thing. The food was good and the drinks plentiful. We felt well served. Would recommend this to a family. They kept on time and paced the evening well. A very good time.

We loved this luau. It was very entertaining and the service was excellent. They also kept the drinks coming but they had very little alcohol content. My daughter and I especially liked the fire dancers. Food was great, too!
