Begin your Luau Kalamaku experience with a true taste of Kauai. Whether it’s an intimate party of two or a celebration for up to 20, enjoy a specialized dinner at Gaylord’s Restaurant at Kilohana.
Under the direction of Chef de Cuisine, you will delight in a unique menu featuring meats, fish and produce, including fruits and vegetables from Kilohana Plantation’s 60-acre orchard and agricultural park.
Join us as the Kauai skies darken and our cast takes the stage to tell the amazing story of the epic voyage between Hawaii and Tahiti along one of the longest sea roads of Polynesia. Through these ancient voyagers’ laughter, fear, seduction, and fire, a new legacy is created, born from the cherished seeds of their ancestors, culminating with a fantastic fire dream featuring fire poi balls and traditional fire knife dancing.
