Perfect ending to our vacation. The local artisans and games for the younger kids were a great way to start the night out. The food was simply amazing! The kaula pig was to die for! And the show – we sat up front (so worth the upcharge, btw) – just outstanding. Beautiful storytelling to match the dancing. Would definitely do this luau again!

We just want to let you all know how much we enjoyed the Luau on Friday April 24th. The show and the food were amazing. MUCH SUPERIOR to Maui. :) Note: Mai Tai’s and Blue Hawaiians SO GOOD.
Will highly recommend.

This was our second luau in Kauai over the past 4 years and by far the best. Each guest receives a lei, and local artisans sell their wares. You can tour the historic plantation before the show begins and there are a couple of games for the kids to play. We skipped the train ride and enjoyed free flowing Blue Hawaiians and Mai Tai’s. The Imu pig was delicious. And the dancing was unbelievable. My daughters were mesmerized by the fire dancers and enjoyed the story of the evening’s show. Splendid!
