Description

Fire knife dancers and engaging storytellers await at the Luau Kalamaku, where you can immerse yourself in the legends of ancient Hawaii. Take a train ride around the historic Kilohana Plantation to see the grounds, sip a refreshing Mai Tai, and enjoy a delectable buffet of delicious island cuisine.

Arrive at the 105-acre (42-ha) working Kilohana Plantation and start your evening with a ride on a train with railway cars that are reproductions of models used during the time of Kalākaua, Hawaii's last reigning king. A local guide narrates as you chug along, so you can learn about the history of Kauai's early plantation days as you see where fruits and vegetables like papaya, bananas, and mangoes are grown. Hop off partway through to meet farm animals like pigs, goats, sheep, cattle, and horses before looping back to the luau grounds.

Try your hand at traditional Hawaiian crafts and fun, family-friendly games. When you hear the conch shell sound, gather around as the savory kalua pig is unearthed in a time-honored imu ceremony. Hula dancers sway in traditional dress to the sounds of Tahitian drumbeats, and award-winning musicians take you on a journey of song and dance through the South Pacific. Savor a buffet of island fare like lomi lomi salmon and pineapple upside-down cake, and, once the sun sets, watch flaming poi ball twirlers bring Kauai's mythology to fiery life.

  • Kauai fresh green salad with papaya seed dressing or balsamic vinaigrette

Having been to a couple of other luaus this one was not really what I expected. The dancers were very good but with the venue being so huge and hundreds of people there the whole show had a atmosphere of a cruise ship rather then a natural luau

I read other reviews about the dinner so with kids I went with the buffet. It was great when you have pickey eaters. They got to try all the foods in smaller portions and what they did like they were able to get more. The train ride was great. Be aware there is no air conditioning. And the show was just great. Be aware there is no air conditioner. For the package you got a lot to do than other shows. Still pricey, pick a package that works for you. And be aware there is no air conditioner.
