What You Can Expect

Luau Kalamaku and Buffet Dinner

Buffet Dinner

Your journey begins in the early evening at Kauai’s Kilohana Plantation with craft demonstrations and Hawaiian games. You’ll have the option to ride on the Kauai Plantation Railway (additional cost), the first new railroad built in Kauai in nearly 100 years.

Then, witness a traditional imu ceremony, where one of your main courses (pork) is unearthed from an underground oven. You can also order some yummy tropical drinks at the bar (own expense).

You’ll then be treated to a scrumptious buffet dinner of lomi-lomi salmon, pork, ono and teriyaki chicken with vegetables and salads. Top it off with some fresh tropical fruit and dessert.

After dinner, head to your seats in the Luau Pavilion and watch a colorful performance of traditional Polynesian dancers, fire twirlers and knife dancers. Watch as they paint a vivid story of the journey of the first Tahitian voyagers to the Hawaiian Islands, displaying their hardship, drama and finally triumph. Sit back, relax and become immersed in the state-of-the-art media system and stage design.

At the end of the show, you’ll have the opportunity to take photos with the cast!

This Luau it's a good one, rain or shine as its underneath a hughe tarp. The food was typical Hawaiian Luau food, and it was good. The show was very entertaining and well put together. Tour is definately worth it.

It was awesome, the plantation is beautiful, the food and drinks outstanding but the entertainment was a highlight of our trip. This luau was worth every penny!!!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

We very much enjoyed the experience of this Luau. The dancing was just wonderful --- I've studied classical dance all of my life and thought that the hulas were exquisite. We were so relaxed and enjoying ourselves so much that we left that evening without taking a bag of souvenirs with us --- we accidentally left the bag under our table. The next day we returned to the facility and recovered our bag --- we certainly did not expect to ever see those items again! We went to the luau the last evening of our trip to Hawaii and it was a highlight of our experience.
