Feast at Lele
(West Maui: Lahaina, Kaanapali, Napili, Kapalua)
The evening begins with a fresh flower lei greeting & possibly the best mai tai in all Hawaii.
For groups of 10 or more, a 15 % gratuity is included in the price.
Does not qualify for $5 OFF due to FAL policy.
The Lahaina beach setting allows an optimal view of the manta rays & surfers frolicking in the bay at sunset. This is a sit-down, 5-course dinner at your private table featuring Hawaiian, New Zealand, Tahitian & Samoan cuisine, then dessert. Each course is accompanied by Polynesian entertainment from that island, including the famous fireknife dance. The open bar includes tropical cocktails with umbrellas, mixed drinks, beers, and wines, but you won’t lift a finger with tableside service.
