What You Can Expect

Luau Kalamaku with Plantation Owner's Dinner and Champagne Reception

Kalamaku Luau on Kauai

Begin your evening at Kauai’s elegant Kilohana Plantation with a lei greeting and a Champagne toast to celebrate this special night. Then, you’ll sit down for a delightful four-course meal at Gaylord’s Restaurant (menu can be found in the Itinerary section below).

After you’ve had your fill of several island specialties, you’ll have the chance to shop at the wonderful galleries and boutiques inside the plantation home. Browse unique artwork and hand-crafted Hawaiian products before taking a torch-lit walk to the Luau Pavilion.

Be mesmerized as hula dancers, fire ball twirlers and traditional Polynesian fire knife dancers paint a vivid story of the journey of the first Tahitian voyagers to the Hawaiian Islands. Learn of their hardship, drama and finally triumph as you sit back, relax and become immersed in the state-of-the-art media system and stage design.

Food was great, the Champagne was bottomless which was unexpected, then the stars of the Luau, walked us into the show where we had front row seats. The show was spectacular !

Was a nice evening. Had a nice meal at the restaurant and then were escorted over to the Luau by a couple of the dancers. Had reserved tables - the best seats in the house. If you are going to do this Luau, look at booking this tour. Well worth it. When you arrive, go directly to the Plantation Owners house and check in. Don't stand in the lines with the rest of the tourists as you will be sent to the house.

The dinner and luau were awesome, so glad we did the Plantation Owner's dinner rather than the normal luau dinner. We ended up at a table right next to the stage for the show. The entire evening was great, especially the mai tai's in the bar and during dinner, the best on the entire trip.

Fun good show

Truly a wonderful experience from start to finish. Picked up at the hotel in the north and an hour later we were there. As we'd pre-booked, we queued and were then directed to a separate entrance where we were quickly shown to our table and sparkling wine. The 4 course meal was wonderful. If you want copious amounts of food and alcohol, go for the other option. If you want higher quality, this is for you.
Once we'd had our meal, we were shown to our front row seats.
A few drinks from the bar, an excellent show and when complete, back on the coach for the return leg.

Not one to drive yourself. :-)

Amazing night, wonderful dinner, fascinating show!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Having the private dinner at the plantation house was incredible-- great service and great food. Then getting escorted by torch bearers to the front table and the luau performance was perfect-- couldn't ask for a better view! Been to many luaus before-- but this by far was the best.

We attended Christmas Eve. The entire family had a wonderful time from beginning to end. We started with a lei greeting, pictures in the garden, and an intimate and quiet family dinner at the plantation. Then we were escorted to and from front row seats at the fabulous show. Couldn't have arranged a better evening. Best luau experience on the island and we've attended them all over the years we've been coming!
