Sponsored by Tihati Productions the Marriott Te Au Moana Luau at the Wailea Marriott Resort has reinvented itself. With a combination of ambiance, an outstanding show and extensive buffet the Marriott Te Au Moana Luau is the perfect choice for a luau in Maui.
Considered a Polynesian Revue, the Marriott Te Au Moana Luau takes you on a journey through time sharing the legends of Hawaii and the South Pacific. From ancient hula to the modern era of Hula dancing the show is flawless. Each graceful movement, the beautiful costumes, the chant with the beat of the Palau Drum weaves a story from the culture of Hawaii.
Most critics believe the best luaus on Maui are in either Lahaina or Kaanapali. They probably haven’t attended this Maui luau. If you are staying in Kihei or Wailea, it makes sense to avoid the long drive to the west side for a luau when the Te Au Moana is minutes away from where you are staying.
As the sun arks in the late afternoon, the sun’s reflection off the water is bright. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses, you will need them until the sun sets below the horizon line.
Premium seating is also called Upgrade seating. The second row of tables and back is considered standard seating. They are great seats. The Wailea Marriott luau is the only luau where standard seating is as good as the premium seating. Why waste the cash on a seating upgrade when the Premium seats are just as good?
