Owner description: Built in the 1930's, Kilohana Plantation is a historic landmark and premier visitor attraction offering visitors and locals a glimpse into Kauai's past combined with assorted island-style activities, dining and shopping. Ride on our Kauai Plantation Railway, winding its way through the plantation's working farms and orchards. Learn about Kauai's history, enjoy the beautiful views and stop to feed the pigs! Take the afternoon to stroll the grounds and explore the 16,000 sq. foot plantation home. Stop in at Koloa Rum Co. for a rum tasting or for a full "Rum & Dining Experience." Visit the various artisan shops located around the grounds and both upstairs and downstairs in the home. Established in 1986, Gaylord's restaurant is a Kauai tradition. Set in the courtyard of the estate, it offers fresh, island-inspired food and beverages for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Make lunch a part of your fun afternoon on the estate or make reservations for a romantic dinner. Memorable by day, unforgettable by night. Or check out Happy Hour in the new Mahiko Lounge. Luau Kalamaku is Kauai's only theatrical luau telling the story of the original Tahitian voyage to the Hawaiian islands. An interactive experience, it offers all the exciting luau features including an imu ceremony, torch lighting, Polynesian knife dance and of course traditional music & hula. Choose one or all of the features that Kilohana Plantation has to offer. Open daily, you'll love the chance to see a piece of Kauai's history while experiencing the best of the island today!

We attended a wonderful Luau. The food, for a buffet, was very good and efficiently presented. The show was fantastic.

The train ride around the property was fun and there is a chance to feed the goats and wild pigs. The main house is great. Our lunch was very good and the service was super.

As said go for the show not the food. The show as great - food was ok. Our concierge at our hotel told us if you want a great show go here if you want great food and an ok show go to Smith's. So glad we went for the show! Take the train ride too!

We booked this luau for our two families - with kids ranging in age from 5 to 14. While the food was typical luau food, and just mediocre, the performance was spectacular, and not too long. We also took the train around the plantation at the beginning of the luau, and that was a real treat. My DH and I love seeing and learning about all the different fruits, herbs and plants that were grown on the plantation. It was very enjoyable and a nice way to start the evening.

The buffet was well stocked, and feeding 300 people was smooth, but the food was just okay. Aside from the Kahlua pork, nothing stood out. I also recommend getting the beer as the drinks were not great.

However, I would definitely recommend this to a friend. This was better than any of the other luaus I have been to.
