We've done many luaus in our many trips to the islands. We had read good reviews on this one so we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed. We opted for the Plantation Owners package. It is a little more expensive but your...More

Excellent Show production, it was not the normal show you see of the island dances of those who settled Hawaii but rather one of the legions of the people - the Fire Goddess. The cast, dance and stage lighting made this an exceptional show. We...More

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fantastic show. Story/plot that moves you through the show is heartwarming and engaging. Very talented cast and band who engaged the crowd through the entire show. Food & drink were very good. Lots of pre-show activities on the grounds: shopping, Koloa Rum tasting (must...More

This is not a traditional Luau in the sense of having a pig buried in the ground and then eaten. This is a large commerical facility that can seat up to 800? with covered roof (it rains frequently of course!) and buffet style serving. I...More

Even though it is not traditional Luau experience, Luau Kalamaku is best stage production of Luau with great lighting and sound effects. I have been to other Luau but nothing compares to this.

Gaylord VIP dinner with escort to the Luau was pretty cool. Flower and shell leis, great food and unlimited champagne, premium seating was well worth it. Avoid the chaos of the buffet and the wackos.

This was my second luau, the first was the Old Lahaina Luau on Maui which I highly recommend. Luau Kalamaku felt less friendly. The wait staff were not personable and seemed hurried. The food was tasty and plentiful. The show was theatrical as were the...More

We did not find the entertainment to be really loud and we sat in the front row next to the stage. There were lots of young children present who appeared to enjoy the show. I believe the show was over by 9pm.
