Named Kauai’s “Best Luau Show” by Lonely Planet, Luau Kalamaku is a theater-in-the-round dinner show with a state-of-the-art media system and stunning costume design. This reimagined luau also features a Hawaiian buffet, artisan marketplace, and imu unveiling ceremony.

Luau Kalamaku is located on the historic 104-acre Kilohana Plantation. Before luau festivities kick off, guests are encouraged to arrive early and explore the plantation grounds, on-site artisan market, or climb aboard Kilohana Plantation’s 2.5-mile railway line. The celebration begins with a traditional imu unveiling ceremony, followed by a succulent Hawaiian buffet, where locally-loved dishes like poi, kalua pork, teriyaki chicken, and fresh fish make appearances.

Fire and folklore are focal points during this dynamic show. Pyrotechnics, eye-catching costumes, and Pacific cultural dances are knit into the luau’s heartfelt storyline— which chronicles the first Hawaiian people’s migration to the islands.

Pretty good, worth it.

The luau itself was pretty good, not great but not bad either. The food was decent and the show was fun. The food was tasty, with traditional Hawaiian favorites like luau pig and poi. The entertainment was a little long winded for me, but the hula dancers and fire dancing was really good. Overall, I had a good time and would recommend this luau to most tourists in Kauai.

Whatup, y'all? Straight from Nashville to Kauai, I'm reporting from beautiful Kauai, where I'm attending the Kalamaku luau for my first time. So far, it's the perfect setting for a night of fun and and music. Hoping they let us dance too. I'll report back soon. Cheers!

Good but not the best

It's no secret that Luau Kalamaku is one of the most popular luaus on Kauai. The food is delicious, the drinks are quickly made, and the entertainment is top-notch. But is it the best? Personally, i think the Aulii luau is better. But they're all good.

all around awesome

Well, let me tell you. First off, the setting is simply beautiful. The Kilohana Plantation is stunning and the perfect spot to explore before feasting on traditional Hawaiian cuisine. And the show is filled with uber-talented island folk. From hula dancers to local band, you're sure to be entertained from start to finish. Just don't ask them to play Tiny Bubbles!

What I think sets Luau Kalamaku apart from other luaus is the staff. They truly go out of their way to make sure your experience feels special/unique. So if you're looking for an amazing luau experience, I recommend the Luau Kalamaku!
