Kauai’s Magical Luau
On the laid-back island of Kauai, everything is a bit more relaxed, a bit quieter, and a little bit more, well, magical. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Luau Kalamaku is one of the most special luau experiences you could wish for.
Situated at the Kilohana Plantation, the Luau Kalamaku takes you away into a world of exotic flavors, graceful dances and thrilling rhythms. Join the celebration as the torches are lit in a ceremony of light. One of the highlights for both your eyes, your cultural education, and your taste buds is the preparation of the imu, a traditional fire pit used to bake a whole pig, together with local vegetables and side dishes. Lava rocks line the pit and keep the heat going for hours, producing juicy, tender meat with a subtle flavor.
Exquisite Food for All Palates
Enjoy storytelling, island music, and graceful dancing as the buffet is served. Alongside the kalua pig, the daily fresh caught fish is a mouthwatering treat. And not only carnivores get their fill. The buffet includes a variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, such as vegetable Chow Mein and Thai Curry Ratatouille. These dishes reflect the eclectic quality of Hawaiian cuisine, combining Asian, European, and Polynesian styles to produce unique new flavors. Fresh salads, vegetables, and tropical fruits make for a colorful plate to please all the senses. Of course there’s rice, poi, mashed purple sweet potatoes, and other staple foods that make for a happy, full belly. But make sure you leave room for dessert! Pineapple upside down cake and haupia, a delicious pudding made from coconut cream, are just two of the sweet options to end your meal.
An Unforgettable Show
After dinner you’re invited into another world as the award-winning show unfolds before you. This production is unlike any other in Hawaii, and tells an ancient story based on local folklore. Ancient as the tale may be, the Luau Kalamaku crew employ state-of-the-art stage equipment using a combination of media to captivate your senses.
The thrilling story about the voyages from Tahiti to Kauai includes a goddess, a prince, and a fire-breathing dragon. Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t include fire knife and flaming poi ball dances. Thrill to the extraordinary skill and traditional moves that will send chills through your body.
To more fully appreciate the beauty of the area, you can add a train ride through the plantation to your. This 40 minute ride takes you through the gentle landscapes of Kauai and shows a face of the Islands as they used to be. Be sure to stop by the artisan market for some unique local souvenirs.
