Te Au Moana, or "Ocean Tide", is a celebration of the wonderful culture which makes Hawaii so incredibly amazing and unique. Not only will you enjoy a delicious meal, you will be able to try a variety of different cultural activities and experience a world-renowned Tihati Production.

As you enter the luau, you will be greeted with a Hawaiian Lei and a Welcome Drink. With the sounds of live Hawaiian music in the background, you can make your way around the luau grounds and see the various crafters and artisans from all around Polynesia and you can see how authentic "poi", a mashed taro root which is the staple of the Hawaiian diet, is made, view various floral crafts, coconut husking, learn the basics of hula and see "kapa" printing as well.

Once the sun begins to dip beneath the horizon, it will be time to enjoy the mouthwatering All-You-Can-Eat Luau Buffet and the well-stocked Open Bar. Then just sit back and watch the spectacular Polynesian Show filled with the songs and dances of all of the different countries and islands. This will be an evening that you will not soon forget!

"Te Au Moana Luau"
May 2018
Seen this luau over the years. It’s at a beautiful location with a gorgeous sunset. The luau is great, but not as amazing as it had been in the past. They had a coconut tree climber and a beautiful tree dancer before and all that is gone. The food was ok. I was with children, and they were not too happy with the food. Overall, it was a nice 4 hours spent and if it’s your 1st time you’ll love it.

"Fantastic Luau"
April 2018
We had a great time at the Te Au Moana Luau. The Buffet was very well stocked and a good Quality and variety, More than I could fit on a plate, Second helpings were welcomed though. The Show was good and very enjoyable. Our regular seating was very close to the stage with barely a few feet between us and the "premium". Most important, the drinks were great and free flowing all evening, think the most we queued was 1 minute. Over all a great night, and we have done a good few Luau's before.

Tip: Get there early to get best seats even if not premium.

"Our Maui Adventure"
July 2017
This was by far better than we expected. A little disappointed that we did pay for preferred seating & when the best part that I was really looking forward to, the Fire performance was done in the back & I couldn't see anything because we were in the front...But other than that the Food was Fabulous and the People were very Inviting & Friendly...
