The Luau Kalamaku at Kilohana Plantation completely exceeded my expectations. I was expecting the typical luau – a mediocre buffet and an endless supply of Mai Tai’s. Not the case. Upon arrival guests are greeted with aloha by the beautiful hostesses. Tiki torches are lit, the landscape beautifully manicured and full of tropical flowers, and historic Kilohana estate lies in the background. Music is playing and just outside the venue are vendors offering local goods and fun games for the keiki.
As I approached the bar I expected my choices to be Mai Tai or virgin Mai Tai. I was wrong! The drink offerings are extensive, ranging from beer and wine to Blue Hawaiians to guava juice and their specialty, the “Sneaky Tiki.”
Once seated, you’ll see there isn’t a bad seat in the house. The servers bring salad and taro rolls around to start followed by the blessing and Imu ceremony (unveiling of the sacred pig). Once at the buffet I was pleasantly surprised. I’m gluten and corn intolerant so I expected to eat rice and salad but they even have the buffet items labeled – several options being gluten free! The food tasted great and was presented beautifully.
As far as the show goes, it is like no other. It is Kauai’s version of Cirque du Soleil. The story told is one of how the Polynesians reached Hawaii, with song and dance and a bit of theatrical performances mixed in. The dancers are all spectacular (and beautiful!), the costumes very original and the fire dancers best on island. I would highly recommend this show to anyone!
