If you only experience one thing in Hawaii, make sure you don’t miss this spectacular extravaganza. Graceful Hula dancers, fire poi balls, traditional fire knife dancing, lavish buffet of local delicacies, and a vivid storyteller come together for this once-in-a-lifetime authentic experience. We love our gatherings or “pa’inas” as they were called in days of old. And whether this is your first luau or not, we guarantee that our luau experience will be unique. Why can we say that?
Luau Kalamaku’s exclusive Gold Package includes premium seating so you can experience our theatrical show so close to the stage that you can feel the heat from our famous fire dancers!
Like other luaus, we feature ono Hawaiian food, a dramatic torch lighting and imu ceremony (the unearthing of pig from an underground oven), Tahitian rhythms, fantastic music, and traditional hula dancing…even the drums are crafted by the hands of our own drummers. This is where the similarity ends. Lu’au Kalamaku features a state-of-the-art media system and an interactive stage design that transports you to ancient Polynesia during the time of their remarkable migration to the Islands.
It is during the time of epic voyages between Hawaii and Tahiti, along one of the longest sea roads of Polynesia, that our journey takes place. Through laughter, fear, seduction and fire, a new legacy is created, born from the cherished seeds of their ancestors. Our theatrical luau culminates with a fantastic fire dream featuring fire poi balls and traditional fire knife dancing. In a climactic ending, Pele the fire goddess, her sister Hiiaka, Lohiau, the prince of Kauai, and the fire breathing Moo-dragon women pay homage to Kauai mythology.
While the incredible tale unfolds, you find yourself not merely watching a story– but in the heart of the story itself. Kalamaku, child of the new land, carries the fiery torch of one family’s future. Celebrate through story and song the primal rhythm of Kauai. Explore the depths of the family’s great effort as they seek the courage and vision that will carry them far over the horizon.
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.
Our theatrical luau will bring you to tears and have you jumping from your seats as the story our cast weaves brings you back to the original days of the Hawaiian people, culminating with a fantastic fire dream featuring fire poi balls and traditional fire knife dancing.
