An Inexpensive Maui Luau You Should See
Nothing says Hawaii like a luau. Thankfully, Maui has many luaus to choose from. Here we share the least expensive Maui luau.
Maui Is Not Cheap
Maui has certainly never been considered a budget-friendly tourist destination, thanks in large part to its isolated location (and thus high airfare costs), food and drink options, expensive accommodations, and general higher-than-average cost of everyday goods and services.
A top contender alongside Australia and New Zealand in terms of the world’s most expensive travel destinations, it’s no wonder Maui’s 2+ million annual visitors – as well as its roughly 165,000 resident population – is always looking for creative ways to stretch their savings a little further.
There Are Ways To Save On Maui
Although we thankfully have plenty of outdoor activities, beaches, hiking trails, and natural beauty to enjoy for free anytime we like, the majority of visitors also want to participate in at least a few of the island’s top recommended activity offerings, especially after making the effort to travel all the way to the world’s most isolated population center. From snorkeling excursions to Molokini Crater to romantic sunset cruises along the coast, Upcountry farm and winery tours, sunrise excursions to Haleakala Volcano, and much more, one of the longest-running and most popular activities in the Aloha State remains attending a traditional Hawaiian luau.
Often set in a scenic oceanfront location with a direct view of the sunset, luaus on Maui are almost always a guaranteed way to enjoy a fun outdoor experience in paradise with every member of your family or travel group, whether you’ve come to Maui for your honeymoon, on a tropical holiday getaway with the family, an exotic trip with your friend group or even an adventurous solo mission.
An Inexpensive Maui Luau
Fortunately, we have cut out the hard work for you and scoured the best deals on the island to find the most inexpensive – and yet still high quality – luau on The Valley Isle. Maui’s longest-running luau, The Royal Lahaina Luau also happens to be its most budget-friendly option at around $185 per adult. Located at the Royal Lahaina Resort in West Maui, its beachfront location faces the stunning Kaʻanapali Beach, previously voted America’s Best Beach and a favorite among snorkelers, cliff divers, and those seeking sun, sand, and blissful tropical vibes on the shores of Maui.
Guests will receive an aloha shell lei greeting, as well as a welcome mai tai cocktail, and be treated to an open bar throughout the evening, featuring standard island cocktails along with an assortment of local beers, wines, soft drinks, fruit punch, and coffee/tea. Even better, because all seats at this popular Maui luau are pre-assigned, there is no need to arrive early (just an incentive to book earlier).
Sit back, watch the sunset, and take advantage of the all-you-can-eat buffet showcasing authentic Hawaiian cuisine. Take pleasure in watching the beautiful hula dancers, thrilling fire-knife dance, and cultural performances of Hawaii, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Samoa, and learn more about the history of Polynesia through music, dance, and storytelling.
