Christmas Eve Luau on Maui 2020

Te Au Moana Luau is oceanside at the Wailea Marriott

Spend your Christmas Eve on Maui at a wonderful Hawaiian Luau at the Beautiful Marriott resort in Wailea.

What To Expect

As you arrive at the beautiful Wailea Beach Marriott, you will find free parking in the garage or you can valet park for $5. For those of you with limited mobility issues, we can request a cart to take you down to the Beach Front Lu’au grounds, an approximate 5-minute walk from your car.

Guests arriving for the Christmas Eve Te Au Moana Lu’au are greeted with a fresh flower Lei!

One of the things we like about Te Au Moana Lu’au is their arrival policy, most Hawaiian Lu’aus on Maui have nice long lines about 500-600 people deep. Not Te Au Moana Luau at the Wailea Beach Resort! As you arrive, they check you in and let you find your seats with the help of ushers in cute Hawaiian attire.

Once you have found your table, go take photos with the Hula Dancers down by the Ocean.

Bar Service

Wander over to the Bar and order a drink. You can choose anything from Beer and Wine to Tropical drinks such as a Mai Tai, Blue Hawaii and the Lava Flow.

As you stroll about the Lu’au grounds, there are several Cultural Demonstrations to watch.  A favorite is the Coconut Husking Demonstration and the Imu  (un-earthing the cooked Pig from the underground oven) Ceremony.

Ladies can get in line for a fresh Orchid for their Hair; married ladies wear fresh Flowers in their hair on the left side and we single ladies wear flowers on the right side.  All ages get a kick out of getting a “fake” Polynesian “Tattoo.

There is a lively band next to the stage and ocean, playing Hawaiian Music all throughout the evening.

For anyone who wants to watch, the Te Au Moana Lu’au is (currently) the only Lu’au on Maui that ‘debones the Pig’ right there in front of you! Take as many photos and videos as you like.  Once the Pig is taken to the Buffet,  each table will be called to the Dinner Buffet.
