This is unlike any other luau I’ve ever experienced. The service was elevated to that of fine dining. The food was unbelievable and even better than expected. Native performers present high quality traditional songs and stories. The Andaz is a beautiful site that must be experienced at sunset! If you’re looking for an upscale luau for adults & teen that appreciate farm to table food this is a must!

As always, We had an absolute fantastic day whale watching! Couldn’t have asked for better weather, attentive informative guides and a whale experience we’ll never forget! We were blessed with quite the show of active breaching whales! We brought a friend with us to Maui and she is in heaven from the experience. Thank you so much!

This was an awesome experience. Great hosts and delicious food. We were lucky enough to see the whales and they gave us a show. The sunset was beautiful. It was a great memory on our trip. Would highly recommend!!

Fantastic crew, very knowledgeable, and super helpful. Great pricing on soft drinks and bar. Saw dozens of whales and enjoyed every minute.

Our tour Guides were awesome! Using a scooter for snorkeling made it a lot more fun! We did the morning tour and the water was perfect!
