A trip to Hawaii wouldn't be complete with a Hawaiian Luau. Every island has their own and this one told the story of a family being separated as the father journeys toward Kauai. I really enjoyed the luau and the food was what you would...More

This is a very large Luau but probably the best in the Hawaii islands. The food is very good and the entertainment is really exceptional. All of the dancers are from Kauai and are very good.

Went to this luau on Kauai and was not disappointed. Drinks were good and food was especially tasty. We had a wonderful show with music and dancing especially the fire dancing. This particular luau was rated very high on tripadvisor.

After over 10 trips to Hawai'i I decided to give one a try and I'm so glad I chose this one! The setting was wonderful and we rode the narrow gauge railway around the stunning property (with a hilarious bonus chicken race included) before dinner....More

This is one of the best Luau's that I have been to. The food was great, the drinks were good and the show was a great story with wonderful dancing and the fire dance was spectacular.

Went about 7pm for show only and had an elevated table by bar. Had a full view of stage and entrance areas of performers. Music and dancing as the story is being told throughout the performance. We all enjoyed the show.
