Come here for the show. It is original with local pergormers. Like so many of these productions, the food leaves something to be desired. We really enjoyed the facility and grounds, as well as the area arts and crafts that were in the gift shops...More

This was my first luau - the after dinner show was incredible, the food and service was good. I would suggest an upgrade of the service ware including the plastic cups as well as beat up plates. All in all an interesting experience, with the...More

The food was good, but we were blown away by the theatrics and storytelling at the Luau. An open bar always helps too!

This was probably one of the most memorable things that we did while in Kauai. The food was delicious and the entertainment was unforgettable! They interact with the audience and even give you the opportunity to get on the center stage and learn the Hula....More

Honestly, I felt a little dirty going to this show where a people's culture was being exploited for tourists. That is, until I discovered this is really not their culture. Traditionally the dancing was an aggressive dance only done by men before battle. The dancing...More

This is a wonderful luau. I recommend arriving early to enjoy the live music and crafters / shops. There can be long lines to check in but they are well organized and move fast. The plantation is beautifully maintained and the luau is held in...More
