Luau Kalamaku & Train Ride

Duration: 3.5 hours Location: Lihue
Luau Kalamaku & Train Ride

If you only experience one thing in Hawaii, make sure you don't miss this spectacular extravaganza.

Graceful Hula dancers, fire poi ball twirlers, traditional fire knife dancing, lavish buffet of local delicacies and a vivid storyteller come together for this once-in-a-lifetime authentic experience.

The Show:
Like other luaus, Kalamaku features ono Hawaiian food, a dramatic torch lighting and imu ceremony, Tahitian rhythms, Hawaiian games, fantastic music, and traditional hula dancing…even the drums are crafted by the hands of Kalamaku’s own drummers. This is where the similarity ends. Lu’au Kalamaku features a state-of-the-art media system and an interactive stage design which transports you to ancient Polynesia during the time of their remarkable migration to the Islands.

It is during the time of epic voyages between Hawaii and Tahiti, along one of the longest sea roads of Polynesia, that our journey takes place. Through laughter, fear, seduction and fire, a new legacy is created, born from the cherished seeds of their ancestors. Our theatrical luau culminates with a fantastic fire dream featuring fire poi balls and traditional fire knife dancing. In a climactic ending, Pele the fire goddess, her sister Hiiaka, Lohiau the prince of Kauai, and the fire breathing Moo-dragon women pay homage to Kauai mythology.

Round trip transportation is available. Call for pricing and availability to add to your reservation.
