Luau at the Kilohana Plantation with an amazing and different theatrical performance. Enough activities to keep the guests occupied before the luau and show. One is greeted with a garland of fresh lei and your choice of tropical libations. Dinner buffet include the typical Hawaiian specialties; could not expect any better when serving a hundred of guests.

Every country and every culture has them. The tourists overpay and pile in, lured by the promise of an enriching cultural experience and that always alluring tourist bait, A BUFFET! Well I had been to one of these on another island and another year, but our friends wanted to do it and I was dragged kicking and screaming. Lo and... More

This was a shore excursion from NCL cruise for us and very "hyped" on the cruise. We were disappointed, especially for the price. Save your money and check out one of the other, higher reviewed luaus on your own. The venue is a "theatre in the round" approach with two huge buffets on the side and the stage in the... More

The story, the dancing, the entertainment and the fire was all pretty amazing. We really thought the fire show portion was incredible. Definitely something to do once. Don't miss out, at least cross this off your bucket list. Beautiful property. Food isn't amazing, but the experience and performance it completely worth it. VERY glad we went (we brought our 17...

Wow! What an experience. Do yourself the favor of paying a little extra to sit up front. The luau is a bit expensive but you will feel that it was worth every penny after the show and getting to eat so much food. We honestly would have gone twice during our stay had we known beforehand what wonderful memories were... More

We went for the show only, and it was amazing. Extremely talented performers here, and a real warm, family atmosphere. Highly recommend hitting this up if you're in for a Luau. For whatever it's worth, the buffet looked amazing! Everyone looked like they were having a great time.

Before we the show started, we were a bit disappointed. The pre-show entertainment was not very entertaining. We thought we would leave right after the show started. But then the show started. When the show started, It was really good. The dancers were crazy good. They could sing and dance really well. The show had a good story line and... More

We decided to do the plantation owners package which meant we ate at Gaylords for the meal and then walked over to the performance. The show was very nice. Seemed like more of a traditional type with an actual storyline. We enjoyed the show very much. If we could do it again we would have stayed with the luau buffet... More

Daughter's mother-in-law says it was much better than one she attended in Honolulu. I am unable to compare except with that on a cruise ship. The food was plentiful and tasty. I enjoyed the theatrics of the play. Happy we purchased the luau experience.

We booked this luau through Norwegian Cruise Lines since it was the only luau available! The train ride was fun, and the entire evening was really run like a well-oiled machine. We enjoyed the food, but the desserts definitely had much to be desired. The show was very well-done, but the price for the entire evening was a bit high... More
