What You Can Expect

Luau Kalamaku with Plantation Owner's Dinner and Champagne Reception

Kalamaku Luau on Kauai

Treat yourself and your special someone to a memorable night of gourmet island cuisine and a luau extravaganza. Depending on the transport option selected, you’ll either be picked up at your hotel or make your own way to the historic Kilohana Plantation, where you’ll be greeted with a flower lei and glass of sparkling wine. Settle in among the elegant surroundings at Gaylord’s Restaurant and enjoy a four-course meal of fresh Hawaiian fare. (See Itinerary below for a sample menu.)

After dinner, you’ll have time to wander the historic plantation home, which has been lovingly repurposed as a boutique shopping and dining destination. Browse unique galleries and shops, visit the Koloa Rum Company, or stop in at the atmospheric Mango Bar for a tropical cocktail if you like (own expense). 

Follow torch-lit paths to the state-of-the-art Luau Pavilion and take your premier seat for some of the best views in the house. Sit back and relax as the talented performers of Luau Kalamaku interpret the history of the first Tahitian voyage to the Hawaiian Islands. Flame twirlers, knife dancers and traditional Polynesian hula dancers bring this epic tale to life with a mesmerizing production, accompanied by traditional drummers and other musicians.

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.

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. :-)

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!
