Attended the Smith Family Luau again this trip. We were not disappointed in anything. The tram ride through the 30 acre gardens was refreshing. Watching our grands feed cracked corn to the peacocks, birds and chickens was a treat. Imu ceremony was excellent, well explained...More

Food was absolutely amazing. The staff were incredible. Super friendly and made you feel like family. My daughter has an ear ache so they drove me to the closets store to get medicine for her. It’s a beautiful garden and we had a blast.

The food is yummy, the garden is beautiful and the show is fun. What more can you ask for! We took our 16 year old son and even he enjoyed himself (anyone with a teenager understands that statement lol).

I was very excited about attending my first luau in Hawaii and while this place had beautiful grounds, it (in my opinion) wasn’t worth the money I paid ($150 CAD/person) This price included bus transport from our cruise ship (Norwegian Cruise Lines), buffet dinner with...More

Its really an excellent show. I had been to other Luaus not put on by the Smith Family and the Smith Family one is far superior.
