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 were visiting Kauai with my 3 year old and my parents. We enjoyed the Luau at Kilohana Plantation and my son loved the train ride which included feeding small pigs. We have also been to Smiths Garden Luau on a previous trip. Both are enjoyable.

We have been coming to Kauai for the last three years to get away from the cold in NV. This year we tried the Kilohana Plantation show. We skipped the meal and just did the show and what a nice surprise. Instead of sitting in the back of the room, they put all the "just show goers" right up front. While we didn't get dinner, they allow you to go to the bar for a free drink and if it is non-alcoholic, you can have as many as you can drink. The best show of its kind we have seen.

If you go on Friday night, right after the show go over to Gaylord's on the site and treat yourselves to a great piano player for an hour or more to finish off a great evening. The night we were there the man playing the piano was the music director from South Pacific. What a memory for music this man has, The piano was a little out of tune, but who cares it was a super evening.

Beautiful scenery. A few small boutiques and a beautiful pottery barn in the back. The pottery is beautiful and unique! Decided not to take the train tour but the dining is delicious and pretty view.

On our last day on Kauai, we rode the train around the plantation and walked through the house. It was fun and informative and I enjoyed feeding the kalua pigs.

We had checked out of our hotel and were visiting places that we had not seen before. We did the rum tasting which was fun, but there really was not to much to do.
