What's not to enjoy? A heartfelt, nicely executed show celebrating Hawaiian culture; performed by young and talented performers. And, it's free. Stroll the mall, have a meal and/or beverage, before and/or after the show; and one can have a great and affordable time. A great way to spend a Monday or Thursday evening.

I've been to the top three Hula Luaus on the island. This event is number one for a reason. Held at the Shops of Mauna Lani resort shopping area, this event is held, for free, every Monday and Thursday. Have an early dinner at one of the restaurants then wait for the show to start at 7:00pm. At a Luau,... More

Really fun set of hula and fire dancing. No story and not a big production - just dancing and singing with a nice backing band. The show runs about 45 minutes - a little more hawaiian culture than some of the big Luau shows. Highly recommend.

Not quite a hula show.... more of a sampler of the Polynesian people. Excellent fire dancing. Not as polished as many other shows, but one with skilled performers, and a heart-felt honesty. And it's free ! You can't go wrong.

This was great entertainment in the shopping centre - Mondays and Thursdays. I'd highly recommend. Lovely nights entertainment - you wonder how they can move so many body parts at once!

We had been to a luau on our last trip to Hawaii and didn't want to spend the money again. We found this on trip advisor and it was a 5 minute drive from the Fairmont. We loved it. We got the same show as we had at the prior luau and the price was certainly right!

We decided to go watch the performance after reading other reviews. For the cost of performance (Free). This is a very good show. The MC was very delightful. The entertainers are young but very entertaining. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting to go and see for yourself.

We saw this show twice and were glad we did. The first time we saw the show, it seemed off. Maybe they were having a bad day which can happen. We came back later in the week as we were doing some shopping and saw the show again ... A totally different show! We had expected to see the same... More
