The Maui Nui Luau' is situated on beachfront property on the award-winning Kaanapali beach at the foot of the famous 'Black Rock Cliff' diving point. Set
on the grounds of the Sheraton hotel at Kaanapali beach, this Maui luau offers the best of both worlds, with gorgeous Hawaiian beaches complementing the luau and nightly
entertainments which are sure to dazzle you.
Tihati Productions will stun you with their explosive night show. From the amazing 'Tahitian Princess Dance' to the 'Samoan Fire Knife Dance', this is an evening you will not forget.
Be sure to bring an empty stomach and a camera to capture this evening! Our buffet dinner includes several types of dishes created with locally grown produce. Our dishes are influenced by and infused with the flavors and essences of the many cultures and ethnicities making up the Hawaiian Islands. Try our salads, entrees, desserts, and also a table station where you can build one of two different styles of meals. At our unique build your own table you can choose to make your own sliders and sandwiches with all the ingredients. The other creating option at the build your own station is a more authentically local style dish known as the POKE BOWL. A Poke bowl is based with either a type of rice or lettuce and then layered with a type of Poke (pronounced poke-a). Poke which is raw fish like Ahi (Tuna) is diced in cubes and flavored with seaweed, lomolomi and your type of seasoning. If you would like to stay away from the raw meat options, you can also try a Poke bowl with any of our cooked meat options as well. The last part to a Poke Bowl is the seasonings and toppings. Don't be afraid to come explore our new 'build your own' table and make your own sandwich or bowl!
