Enjoying a traditional Hawaii luau is one of the best ways to experience the true Hawaiian culture. “The Myths of Maui” is one of the oldest luaus on Maui, and the show is offered nightly at the luxurious Royal Lahaina Resort.

As another amazing sunset materializes over the deep blue Pacific Ocean off of Kaanapali’s tropical coastline, Maui’s best oceanfront location comes alive with music and fine food.

In the ocean-side Luau Gardens at the Royal Lahaina Resort, “The Myths of Maui” is an unforgettable luau spectacle.

You will experience an amazing celebration of traditional Hawaiian festivities, mouth watering island cuisine, tropical beverages and of course …. an entertaining luau show.

“The Myths of Maui” is one of the largest luaus on Maui with a capacity of approximately 500 guests.

As you arrive, guests are greeted with a shell lei by your hosts. Soon after you are seated, an assortment of tropical cocktails such as Mai Tai’s and Blue Hawaiians are served.  The delicious drinks are unlimited throughout the luau show. There is an open bar to find a wide variety of cocktails, beer, wine, soda or fruit punch, anytime during the show.

One of the special moments is the Imu Ceremony or uncovering of the traditional roast “Kalua Puaa” (pig) pork from the underground “Imu” oven. The Imu Ceremony is incredible as the large crowd shows their approval,  prior to enjoying the evening’s main dish.

The luau is an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner so be sure to bring your big appetite. There is a lot of great food and it is all quite delicious.

In addition to the main course of pig, the buffet also offers traditional foods like fresh island fish, Kalua turkey, teriyaki steaks, Hawaiian sweet potatoes, poi, taro, lomi lomi salmon and guava bread, coconut cream cake, and tasty haupia (Hawaiian pudding).

The master of ceremonies is terrific. He brings the perfect blend of humor and in-depth knowledge of Hawaiian culture.

Once the show begins, it’s your time to enjoy the experience as the talented cast of dancers, singers, musicians, and drummers present a magical journey through the South Pacific islands of Hawaii, Samoa and Tahiti.

Watching the beauty of the hula dance is priceless. The hula is the traditional local dance, telling the many stories of Hawaiian legends.

After a fast-paced journey of entertainment, the evening culminates with the exciting Samoan “fire knife” dance.
