Feast at LeLe

Feast at Lele – #1 Luau on Maui

This is the most expensive luau on Maui and worth every penny!  If you only have time to enjoy one luau this is the one you should visit.

The first thing you should do is to set up and account with Tom Barefoot by clicking here – costs nothing to join. To learn more about Tom Barefoot Tours click here.

Visiting Maui without taking in a luau should be illegal – you can’t spend all that money to fly to Maui and stay at a fantastic resort and not go to a luau!  Period.  The luau has turned into the last vestiges of Hawaiian culture.  ALL the best luaus are sold out way way in advance of the luau.  You can not wait until you are on Maui to book them – they are sold out by then – you’ve been warned!

Many folks see crazy cheap prices for all kinds of luaus – I can assure you that is exactly what you will get – cheap luaus that will disappoint you.  I’ve been to many luaus and the expensive ones are 10 times better than the cheap ones.  There is NO such thing as an “excellent cheap luau” – they are just cheap and a waste of your money and time.

As you probably know, the only place on the planet you can truly attend a luau is in Hawaii, and arguably, the very best luaus to be found in the state are on Maui, so if your going to do a luau, you should do it right here. The other thing that I should mention at this point is that if your going to decide to book a luau on Maui, you should probably consider doing it right now or as soon as you possibly can, long before you actually arrive on vacation, because some of our very best luaus (not all but some of them) actually are sold out weeks and even months in advance. I know it seems incredible, but it is the absolute truth. Even if the luau is not sold out, the sooner we make a booking for you the better the seating arrangement will be for you and your family when you attend.

Open Bar: the two recommended luaus have a 3-hour open bar – drink yourself silly with premium drinks.  Ask for all the top brands of liquor for your drinks.  Just about any other luau give you one (1) free drink as you enter then opens a bar tab for you to pay at the end.

Premium seating: sign up early and you will get premium seating at these two fine luaus.  Many other luaus want big bucks for you to get a premium seat.  These two fine luaus assign seats based upon when the tickets are purchased – the earlier the better the seat!

20% Tip/Gratuity: these two fine luaus have the gratuity built into the ticket price.  All the other luaus don’t and that amounts to 15% – 20% more of a charge.

Total Cost: Buy a cheaper luau then add in the bar tab plus the 20% tip plus the premium seating and they will cost way way more than these two luaus which are the best on Maui and perhaps all the Hawaiian islands.

Feast at LeLe

Situated along the beach in historic Lahaina Town, just 10 minutes from the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. Guest are greeted with a fresh flower lei and a mai tai. A sit down, five course dinner featuring cuisine of Hawaii, New Zealand, Tahiti, Samoa and Dessert as well as a premium open bar are included throughout the evening. Each course is accompanied by dramatic Polynesian entertainment from each island, that combines modern interpretations of the traditional song, dance and cuisine of four Pacific Islands.

The Feast at Lele is certainly one of the best luaus you will find in the state of Hawaii. This luau is very personalized, holding only about 150 persons, and the demand for these seats is often very great. This is one of the very few luaus you will find that seats your individual group at its very own table and has table service instead of a buffet. The food is served at your table to coordinate with the South Pacific culture that is appearing as entertainment on stage. Each serving then will accentuate specialty dishes available in that specific culture. You will do a cultural round-robin of the Pacific island nations and experience each one at a time. Everything is about personalization at this luau from your drinks to the fresh flower lei you receive when you first arrive, to the seating and to the delicious dinner. If you don’t mind spending a little extra to experience some of the very best, then the Feast at Lele may just be for you.

The tables are set up right on the sand beach and you can drink all the tropical drinks you can think of in 3 hours.  Many luaus don’t include an unlimited 3-hour open bar – this one does.  Tipping is built into the price – so for other luaus you need to add in 20% more for the tip – not this one.
