Hyatt Kaanapali Luau – Regular Seating
The Hyatt Kaanapali Luau, also known as the Drums of the Pacific, is the only luau on Maui that offers a free child. With 2 paying adults you can get 1 free child for general seating.
The Hyatt Kaanapali Luau is the best resort luau in Kaanapali. The Sunset Terrace provides the backdrop for the wonderful Maui luau. With a recent upgrade to the luau grounds, the Drums of the Pacific has created a spacious seating arrangement that is comfortable and great views of the show. Luaus on Maui are a cultural activity that shares in the history of Hawaii. With so many influences shaping the culture of Hawaii, a luau provides a great opportunity to understand how the Hawaiian people became who they are. Thousands of years ago the islands that make up the Polynesia came together as one in Hawaii. From Tahiti, Samoa, New Zealand, Cook Islands and elsewhere in the South Pacific are the ancestral roots of Hawaii. It is from here that our story unfolds. Ancient Hawaii didn’t have a written language. History was told through stories that became the origins of hula dancing. Through the graceful movement of the hula dancer the myths, legends, and history of Hawaii were told for thousands of years.
The Hyatt Regency Hotel presents the Drums of the Pacific, an exciting journey through the history of the culture of Hawaii. As the sun sets and the beat of the drum signals the beginning of a festive night of entertainment with a show that includes dances from all the major Islands representing the Polynesian culture. Your evening will be enchanting as the story of Hawaii is relived through song and dance.
The Drums of the Pacific has added an additional Samoan fire-knife dancer closing out an outstanding show in dramatic fashion.
Standard seating at the Hyatt Kaanapali Luau is also known as regular seating. These tables are the 3rd row and back. The stage is elevated which allows for an unobstructed view of the stage. A portion of the area designated for the standard seating style is also elevated. The luau grounds is only about 60 feet deep. The dinner order for the buffet is also called after the preferred seating. But, one child free per two paying adults. As all luau menus, the Hyatt Luau features all the staples from ancient Hawaii with a variety of tasty treats that delight your senses.

Show was great. The food was excellent and they had something there for everyone. This is for all the Polynesian island so if you’re looking for a traditional Hawaiian one you will only get a small taste.
Food was good. Show was fun. Music was excellent.
Food was little selection, low quality, no flavor, cold, and I could taste the freezer burn on the mixed vegetables. The drinks were mostly juice, tiny pinch of alcohol. The show was ok, not authentic though. People pay $150 per person for this luau and the quality is so poor it's shameful. I feel duped.
Show is good. High energy performances by the male dancers. Waiting time to get in is very long. Foods are OK but not spectacular.
Parking directions in and out of Hyatt Regency need improvement.
We really enjoyed the show. Food was just okay....we expected better. We got there early but didn't know we were supposed to get in line so if you get there early, get in line and you will get to sit closer to the front. Kid friendly.
