Hawaiian Luau on Kauai

The cultural journey begins with craft demonstrations and Hawaiian games, followed by the traditional imu ceremony. Guests are treated to a sumptuous buffet, while hula dancers and musicians entertain. Following dinner, the 45-minute main show begins as dancers take the stage to share the ancient Hawaiian legend of Kalamakū (child of the new land) and the Polynesians’ amazing and dangerous journey from Tahiti to Kauai.

Luau Kalamaku & Kauai Plantation Train Ride offers guests a chance to step back into time. The railway ride takes you through Kilohana’s 105-acre historic plantation. Your conductor guides you as you pass historic plantation homes, travel through a low land forest, and view endless fruit fields of pineapple, papaya, banana, sugarcane, and taro (used for the poi at their luaus).

Then, disembark to feed their herd of wild pigs, goats, and sheep, and see their cattle, horses, clydesdales, and donkeys. The train departs at 5:30 p.m. from the depot, and upon your return you have plenty of time to see the Imu Ceremony, experience the arts, crafts, games, and carriage ride, and visit Kilohana’s Historic Mansion with its unique Shops & Galleries.
