Fire knife dancers and passionate storytellers await at the Luau Kalamaku. Immerse yourself in the legends of ancient Hawaii and Polynesia, sip a refreshing Mai Tai, and enjoy a delectable buffet of delicious island cuisine at the historic Kilohana Plantation.

As you step onto the plantation's lush grounds, try your hand at traditional Hawaiian crafts and family-friendly games. When the conch shell sounds, gather around to watch the unearthing of the savory kalua pig in a time-honored imu ceremony. Hula dancers sway in traditional garb to the sounds of Tahitian drumbeats, setting the stage for the Polynesian revue to come.

While award-winning musicians take you on a journey of song and dance through the South Pacific, savor a buffet of specialties like lomi lomi salmon and a scrumptious pineapple upside-down cake. As the sun sinks down and dinner concludes, watch flaming poi ball twirlers bring Kauai's mythology to fiery life.

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

Well run at a good pace. Dancers were all very good.Food had a good taste but it sat on heaters for over 2 hours prior to being served.Pork was the only item that was not dried out or overcooked.

The show was okay, but I prefer a more traditional show with all the different dances. Typical luau food and drink. I expected hotel pickup, but bus was full and I had to drive.

We really enjoyed the Luau. The food was excellent. The Lyau was well organized. The show was nice. It would have been nice to have free activities and crafts available before the Luau started. They did have a lot of local artists and crafts available for sale however.
