Luau Kalamaku with Plantation Owner's Dinner and Champagne Reception

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Treat yourself and your special someone to a memorable night of gourmet island cuisine and a luau extravaganza. Depending on the transport option selected, you’ll either be picked up at your hotel or make your own way to the historic Kilohana Plantation, where you’ll be greeted with a flower lei and glass of sparkling wine. Settle in among the elegant surroundings at Gaylord’s Restaurant and enjoy a four-course meal of fresh Hawaiian fare. (See Itinerary below for a sample menu.)

    After dinner, you’ll have time to wander the historic plantation home, which has been lovingly repurposed as a boutique shopping and dining destination. Browse unique galleries and shops, visit the Koloa Rum Company, or stop in at the atmospheric Mango Bar for a tropical cocktail if you like (own expense). 

    Follow torch-lit paths to the state-of-the-art Luau Pavilion and take your premier seat for some of the best views in the house. Sit back and relax as the talented performers of Luau Kalamaku interpret the history of the first Tahitian voyage to the Hawaiian Islands. Flame twirlers, knife dancers and traditional Polynesian hula dancers bring this epic tale to life with a mesmerizing production, accompanied by traditional drummers and other musicians.

    If you choose an option including round-trip transport, you’ll be delivered back to the door of your hotel at the end of the evening.

    We had booked through the office then they realized that we were on the Pride of America so they cancelled and said we had to book through the ship per their agreement with NCL. Significantly higher charge and the dinner was predetermined instead of getting to order from the

    The show was very good. The costumes, the dancers the story were good. I was very disappointed in the plantation owners dinner though. Gaylords was beautiful and the food was ok, not great, but our server Dava was awful. It was clear that she didnt want to waste time with us

    We had the premier meal (as opposed to the buffet). The food was good, but not great. The fron row seating was worth the extra expense

    If you have 8 yrs old children and enjoy tourist crap this is great. If you have been to the Maui Old Lahaina Luau or have any respect for Hawaiian luau, culture, or dance STAY AWAY. The Plantation dinner was meh and the luau so bad we left early. Think bad cruise ship or theme

    Tasty meal at Gaylords made from plantation grown ingredients. Included champagne and Mai Tais. Very professional Hula show telling the story of the first migration from Tahiti to Kuaui.
