Luau Kalamaku

Duration: 3 hours Location: Lihue

If you only experience one thing in Hawaii, make sure you don't miss Luau Kalamaku!

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. Luau Kalamaku is an unforgettable experience that is a “must-see” for any visitor to Kauai.

Your cultural journey begins with craft demonstrations and Hawaiian games followed by the traditional Imu Ceremony. While enjoying your sumptuous buffet, hula dancers and musicians will delight you with an exciting luau show. The skies are darken and lights dim as dancers take the stage to share an ancient Hawaiian legend. The legend, Kalamaku, expresses the Polynesians’ amazing and dangerous journey from Tahiti to Kauai.

Come early and stroll the Plantation’s grounds. Shop, take a train ride or a horse-drawn carriage ride, then sit back for a spectacular Hawaiian show. To book Luau Kalamaku & Train Ride together click here.

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