It was a very well organized dinner and luau. Everyone had an amazing time. The staff was very friendly and polite.

This luau is a little different in that it has a storyline--instead of moving from one type of dance to another between historical narration. Although a "traditional" luau is good, this was great. The history of the island is still presented, but through a good story that makes it more alive (at least to me). The food is good too.... More

Our family had the pleasure of attending this wonderful luau. It was offered as an excursion on NCL. This was one of the high lights of our cruise. We enjoyed everything about it!! It is first class all the way. We met such wonderful people. The show was perfect as well as the food. The grounds are stunning!

We've spent the better part of our vacation in the North Shore, but for the luau we journeyed south. Our tour bus arrived on time and off we went to about 6 or 7 other resorts to pick up other travelers. I'd recommend driving if you are staying in the North Shore, the drive down is about 45 minutes, unless... More

This is my third trip to Kauai - and each time we've gone to a different Lu'au. But THIS one was the BEST! The entire experience was great. When going in, you immediately can head right to the bar for a drink - then mill around with local artists (beautiful things - especially the photos - breathtaking!). All during the... More

They say it's an all you can eat buffet, but watch out. If you stop to chew, they ask you if you are done. If you set your fork down they take it! And you better hurry if you want seconds the cover everything up. Then they tell you to for get dessert because the show is about to start.... More

After three trips to Hawaii, it was time for our first luau. After much deliberation, we decided on the Kalamaku Luau at the Kilohana Plantation as sounding like the best suited to our tastes. We were not disappointed. The food, while not the star of the show, was better than most buffets I have experienced -- even the poi. The... More

Vegas style. The round stage-in-the-middle of the 1000-seat- theatre makes every seat a good one. The story line is one of a father, remembering a time of struggle, recalling a decision and a journey to the new land. The contemporary and not-so-traditional luau items were tastier, healthier, and more appetizing - Lomi Lomi with tofu; roasted chicken; and table-set green... More

Both the food and show were pretty good overall when you consider the amount of people. Food was good considering it was buffet. Desserts were kind of boring, but still tasted good. The show was non traditional, but that was ok. Neat to see another version of it. Liked it better than Smiths.

The luau show was very good, although the sound system was poorly set up and you couldn't understand the story being told. When we went to sit outside the pavilion, we could hear just fine, but inside was bad. The dancers were really great. The food, however was just a regular buffet with a few choices, but not very good.... More
