Luau Kalamaku with Plantation Owner's Dinner and Champagne Reception

    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.

    This was one of our favorite things to do. The delicious meal was served in the serene Plantation surrounded by a beautiful garden. The show was a very entertaining story explaining the beautiful Hawaiian culture.

    I don’t remember the prices but we did the Plantation Owner’s dinner because it guaranteed our seating in the front row at the luau. It was great seating and our granddaughter even got to dance with one of the performers.
