Gilligan’s Island Luau: Offering Value and a Culinary, Cultural Experience


Gilligan’s Island Luau is one of the most affordable luaus on Maui. It is not ocean front but, it does have an ocean sunset view, views of Haleakala and the surrounding golf course. It is a smaller, more intimate venue and seats less than half the audience of the resort luaus. They strive to provide a more authentic, ohana (family) type experience in keeping with Hawaiian tradition and culture.

You are invited to enjoy an authentic polynesian luau with panoramic ocean views in Kihei, Hawaii at the Maui Nui Golf Club. Gilligan’s Island Luau provides a delightful array of beverages and a sumptuous Hawaiian buffet that will transport your taste buds to the heart of the Pacific.


Indulge in a variety of refreshing beverages, including tropical drinks, well drinks, red or white house wine, beer, sodas, orange, pineapple juice, and coffee or iced tea. The luau ensures there’s something for everyone, allowing you to sip on your favorite tropical concoctions or enjoy a classic beverage of your choice.

Full Hawaiian Buffet Style Dinner

Prepare your palate for a feast fit for island royalty. The buffet-style dinner features a mouthwatering selection that includes traditional Hawaiian Kalua Pork, Teriyaki Chicken, Panko-crusted Mahi Mahi with Lemon dill cream sauce, and much more. Vegetarians and those with specific dietary needs can rejoice, as there’s also Hummus with vegetable crudités, Lomi Lomi Salmon, Mixed Vegetables, Mac Salad, Poi, White Rice, Molokai Sweet Potato, Green Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette dressing, and Hawaiian Sweet Rolls with honey butter. The luau takes special care to accommodate gluten-free requests when noted in your reservation.


Cap off your culinary journey with delightful desserts, including fresh pineapple cubes, freshly baked white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and a tempting variety of pies and/or cheesecake. Satisfy your sweet tooth as you bask in the tropical evening atmosphere.
