While Maui is considered to be magical most days of the year, there’s something special about ringing in the New Year in tropical Hawaiian paradise. Whether you want to say aloha to 2019 with your toes in the sand or FaceTime your relatives in Canada to brag about the lack of freezing weather, there’s rarely a better time of year to celebrate on the stunning shores of The Valley Isle.
This year, Maui has plenty on offer to make your New Year’s Eve one to remember. We look forward to celebrating with you all, and be sure to clean up any trash around you caused by firework debris. Mahalo!

Maui Chef’s Table – The Mill House, Waikapu
If six (or more) courses of farm-to-table cuisine on a tropical plantation sounds like a glorious way to celebrate the beginning of a new year, you’re not alone. Reserve your spot at this year’s annual NYE Maui Chef’s Table celebration at The Mill House, located in a scenic and convenient central location. At $225 per person, award-winning Executive Chef Jeff Scheer’s innovative dishes, not to mention the romantic ambience and handcrafted cocktails, are worth every penny.
