Feast at Lele Luau - 5 Courses of Traditional Cuisine
“Lele” is the traditional name for the unique town of Lahaina in West Maui, where this upscale luau resides. They are proud to introduce to you the incredible concoction of a fine dining experience blended with a luau that is geared toward a more sophisticated crowd.
The Feast at Lele Luau is an ideal choice for romantic couples seeking a relaxing and decadent occasion. They have exquisitely redefined the traditional luau experience and enhanced this tourist-favorite activity by awakening ALL of your senses to the unique flare of island culture all at once, while making you feel like royalty.
They have ditched the boring and cumbersome buffet-style, traditional setting of luau, and present an expertly crafted five-course menu, brought to you by executive chef James McDonald. He has earned the most awards for Pacific-fusion, island-style cuisine than any other chef on Maui!
He even owns a farm on the island where the fresh ingredients are grown. The staff constantly strive to treat all their guests as though they’ve booked the VIP package:
They first set the dreamy scene with private tables, limited for just you and your party at each individual table, and lined them with clean, white linens. We are pleased to serve your party table-side. The best part: prepare to settle into your candlelit table that is remarkably set directly on the soft-sand beach, the perfect scene for a romantic dinner after a long day of adventuring throughout Maui!
You can sink your toes right into the sand while elegantly indulging and immersing yourself straight into the invigorating sights, sounds, smells, and gratifying tastes of native Polynesia. With the accessible ocean directly as your backdrop, the awe inspiring stage faces West, which means you have a front row seat to the most beautiful sunset in the World.
Because Lele is meant to keep the maximum attendance size small each evening, this makes their venue easily the most intimate luau on the island. It’s no surprise that visitors rate them one of the best, if not THE best luau in all of Maui best- they frequently sell out most evenings and recommend securing your reservations well in advance.
The cuisine is expertly prepared on site and each of the five mouthwatering courses are meant to satisfy even the most particular of palates. Their bar is top-notch and all of your beverages are included: feel free to choose from their selection of imported beer and wine or simply ask for your favorite tropical, blended drink.
Coinciding with each course is a paired performance. Both the food you are savoring and the presentation you are watching will touch on the spirit of a specific island culture: Hawaiian, New Zealand, Samoan, Tongan, and Tahitian.
The curated performances will showcase a vast variety of hula and fire-knife dances. Colorful costumes, chanting, singing, drumming and the unique sound of conch shells will liven up the evening.
the Feast at Lele Luau’s entire team will strive to make your experience with them a memory you’ll treasure for years to come. Mahalo!
