As of September 15, 2021, all guests 12 years and older must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated since the luau is held within a restaurant setting. This means that 2 weeks must have passed since the last dose in a 2 dose vaccine series or since the one dose vaccine was administered. Photo identification matching proof of vaccination will be required from each guest. Acceptable forms of proof include completed vaccination cards in original, photocopied or digital form, or the new Hawaii SMART Health digital health pass. Unlike on Oahu, however, a negative COVID test will not be an option for entering restaurants on Maui.

Face masks covering the nose and mouth are required for all guests 2 years of age and older while indoors. While seated and consuming food or beverages, all are welcome to remove the face mask.
Thermal temperature check is required by all guests 2 years of age and older. If your temperature shows in the "red zone," you and your party will not be permitted entry.
