Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Treat yourself and your special someone to a memorable night of gourmet island cuisine and a luau extravaganza. Depending on the transport option selected, you’ll either be picked up at your hotel or make your own way to the historic Kilohana Plantation, where you’ll be greeted with a flower lei and glass of sparkling wine. Settle in among the elegant surroundings at Gaylord’s Restaurant and enjoy a four-course meal of fresh Hawaiian fare. (See Itinerary below for a sample menu.)

After dinner, you’ll have time to wander the historic plantation home, which has been lovingly repurposed as a boutique shopping and dining destination. Browse unique galleries and shops, visit the Koloa Rum Company, or stop in at the atmospheric Mango Bar for a tropical cocktail if you like (own expense). 

Follow torch-lit paths to the state-of-the-art Luau Pavilion and take your premier seat for some of the best views in the house. Sit back and relax as the talented performers of Luau Kalamaku interpret the history of the first Tahitian voyage to the Hawaiian Islands. Flame twirlers, knife dancers and traditional Polynesian hula dancers bring this epic tale to life with a mesmerizing production, accompanied by traditional drummers and other musicians.

If you choose an option including round-trip transport, you’ll be delivered back to the door of your hotel at the end of the evening.

Great Dinner With Enthusiastic Performance
, Dec 2021
We had a top-shelf dining experience followed by an enthusiastic and well-performed luau. Dinner was very good and the service of our waiter, Jeff, was extremely attentive. The torch bearer escort from the restaurant to the luau was much less impressive than what was expected. Though our "reserved seating" at the luau was at the very perimeter of the venue, we found the performers to be very talented and enjoyable to watch.
Lively Luau

The show was excellent. We enjoyed the storyline, the music and the costumes. 🎶 I would definitely recommend this to family and friends.

The gal who drove the bus was extremely kind, knowledgeable and funny. The property was absolutely gorgeous. The food was tasty and full of flavor from the appetizer to the dessert. I ate my husbands dessert too! The folks delivering our meal were kind and patient as we’ve never done a “fancy” dinner. The story told in the luau was AMAZING! The folks telling the story were phenomenal! You could actually feel the story by their body language. Overall, it was worth every penny. I plan to do it again when we visit another time.
Experience that truly sucked
, Oct 2021
My wife tripped on the uneven concrete pads in the courtyard. She fractured her hip and spent the whole vacation in the hospital. I would hope this hazard has been repaired before it happens again. We were also not given or offered a refund. The manager reached out by phone and was nice for what that’s worth.

We are very sorry to hear this. Mahalo.
Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Love the beautiful grounds and Quiet Elegant Dinner. The food was fantastic and presented beautiful. The show was more than expected, very colorful, but also informative.
Lies, lies, lies and more lies. False promises!!

I cancelled the Luau Kalamaku with Plantation Owner's and Champagne Reception about 2 weeks after I signed up for it but the person I called to cancel said I would get the cancellation number sent to my e-mail the same day but never did. I kept calling but never got any cancellation number sent to me & put on hold severals times for hrs. I never went to your Luau. I kept calling but never got anywhere but on hold or hung up on. The people I spoke to were hard to understand and was told by them they were Asian. I was told when I bought this Luau that I would get fully refunded because I cancelled so soon. I did not go to the Luau & could not get anyone on the phone or receive any E-mail sent to me which I gave them so they would send me cancellation number. Please refund me because I did not go to the Luau & cancelled the Luau early & was told I would not be billed until I went to the Luau but found out you took the money way before the Luau. I will not recommend this to anyone & would like to have this refunded to me if it has not already been refunded. Communication was very, very bad. I was falsely promised & ignored.

We are responding from Luau Kalamaku and are very sorry to hear about your frustration. You most likely spoke directly to TripAdvisor/Viator to cancel your booking. Please reach out to Viator once again to initiate your refund as they have collected your initial payment. Mahalo!
What a Surprise!!
, Sep 2021
We had no idea we were not doing the Laua Dinner (buffet style) but doing a four course dinner at the Gaylord, then the Laua show. The Dinner was absolutely wonderful and all the Staff at the Gaylord were exceptional! I would highly recommend this for anyone.

Plantation Onwers Option

The meal and drinks at Gaylords were absolutely great and the server was very professional and friendly. The luau show was spectacular very colorful and well produced. The cocktails in the luau arena were so so. We opted with the plantation owners option and our seats were in front of the stage. Overall very fun experience.
