It was our 5th luau and we couldn't stop ourselves from comparing our experience at each one. The grounds was beautiful and the staff was friendly and everyone seemed to have a good time. The building was spacious but I thought that the stage was small, even though it was in the center of the room it was difficult to... More

We had a lot of fun at this Luau. We went on the off season, so there wasn't as crowded. They can hold a lot of people, but the stage is in the middle and it has a great layout. The grounds were beautiful! My kids loved the 40 min train ride. The real flowered leis were a nice touch.... More

This luau is the best choice on the island. My wife and I were debating between this and the Smith family luau. On our first day in Hawaii we ended up winning tickets to Smith family luau. The entertainment was amazing, the food was delicious, and did I mention the entertainment. Very friendly staff and beautiful surroundings doing an awesome... More

For a real Hawaiian custom, this was truly AWESOME! The show was spectacular, the staff was very attentive and caring, the food was wonderful as well. Our only plan when we went to Hawaii, was to see a true luau, and we were not disappointed. When and if we make it back to Kauai, we will definitely make it back... More

The show was very beautiful, the food great and the people, staff and dancers were very nice and attentive to the guests. The stage was in the center of the dinning area and everyone had a good view. I would suggest they add more girl hula dancing before the show but they did have some and it was very nice.... More

We were not sure we even wanted to go to a Luau but when we finally decided to go, we liked the sound of the ad that said it was a theatrical luau. It was a delicious dinner and beautiful show. A love story on several levels. We also were wary about the size of the theater but it was... More

The dancing, food, and drinks were not memorable. It also felt like there were too many people there for the size of the space. Next time we will go to a luau at the hyatt.

We were very glad we included this event in our trip! The history lesson of Hawaii was told so beautifully. We did the train ride before the luau and enjoyed the lessons of the plantation as well. The whole evening was very enjoyable, the buffet was even vegan friendly! I definitely recommend that you add this to your trip.

This is a production not to be missed. I've been to luaus before, but this one was amazing. It was beautiful and very moving. The performers really gave it their all. The fire dancers were absolutely incredible. The food was quite good and the drinks were plentiful.
