Luau Maka'iwa - Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort

This Kauai Luau is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Kauai luaus Hawaii page for other open luaus on Kauai.

Experience Kauai's most exciting and authentic luau! Fronting the ancient royal surfing grounds on Kauai’s beautiful east shore, Luau Maka'iwa invites you to experience a memorable evening celebrating a beloved Hawaiian tradition. Much more than a big feast, a Hawaiian luau is a celebration of local island culture, as well as life, family and friendship.

Witness the impressive torch lighting ceremony and listen to stories of ancient Hawaiian legends that are told through song and dance. Luau Maka'iwa takes you on a musical journey of the Hawaiian Islands as well as greater Polynesia. One of the luau show's highlights are the mesmerizing hula kahiko (ancient hula) dances performed under the direction of one of Hawaii's best kumu hula (hula masters) – Leilani Rivera Low.

Another highlight of the evening is the sumptuous luau buffet dinner featuring a wide variety of delicacies, as well as Mai Tai and other tropical cocktails, beer and wine (open bar available until show starts).
