Dinner was exquisite and show definitely conveyed the story and ended with the fire torches!!! loved it!!!
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!
Dinner at Gaylord's was awesome !! And the special treatment we got with the preferred seating made this a very memorable
Great evening. Very enjoyable. Food and service at Goylord's is awesome. Performance was excellent. Will definitely do this trip again when we return to Kauai.
The dinner at Gaylord's was very good. Portions appropriate and food quality good. The show was amazing as was the escort from Gaylord's to the show...stars of the show. Pick-up was prompt and driver a great guide. We were disappointed by misrepresentation on beverages. We received a glass of sparkling wine and then a beverage of choice when arriving at the show at 7:15. The bar closes at 7:30 p.m. I feel Gaylord's should have provided a free beverage or two considering the high price of the upgrade. The wine we purchased for the table was very pricey.
We paid for the upgraded dinner. I wish we had just eaten the traditional meal at the Luau because I feel we missed an important part of the experience. The champagne dinner was delicious and the service was great, however. The show was wonderful and our seats were next to the stage.
Excellent story line in the Luau, food was great ... a bit pricy but worth the experience
