This is a great experience and very professional. We took the bus from the North Shore to the Pono Kai which is a hotel in Kapaa. There is a shuttle from Smith's that picks up at the hotel and we were off...
The luau has 3 parts, a tour of the grounds which was interesting to me because I have a background in medicine and being able to ID Hawaiin plants is interesting. The grounds are well maintained and there are a couple of places to get away with your wife or girlfriend and enjoy whats around you.
The second part is food and open bar. There is no wait and these people have the whole experience down to a science. The food is great, the Mai Tais are good, the people working like the job and its awesome. It is a tourist event but still great. We drank and ate too much so I was glad I took the bus from the Northshore.
The third part was the cultural dance. Whats interesting is Smiths plays homage to all the cultures that are on Hawaii. So different cultures are represented in the show. It was a warm night, the plumeria were blooming and I am very happy with my experience.
Our shuttle driver was "aunt Patty" and she was incredible. Thank you Patty.
Our dinner host was "aunt Nancy" and she was also incredible. She took the flowers out of her hair and pinned them on my date. It was great!!!
