Go for the show, expect when feeding hundreds of people that the food will just be okay. Decent drinks, but the show makes it special.

The best feature of this very expensive experience was the bus ride from Princeville to the Kilohana plantation near Lihue. On arrival we first took the Railway tour which was interesting but were returned late to the Luau site and missed the Imu Ceremony. On...More

The show was beautiful, the food was good. But it was so hot inside the dining/seating area. It wasn’t hot outside but there is no airflow. Ceiling fans would make this place fantastic!!

We went to this Luau show but skipped the dinner. The drinks can improve but the performance was very good and entertaining. The location at an old plantation inside a large tent is a good way to go. The weather does not impact the show...More

Great setting for an evening, with easy parking. The grounds were beautiful and were wonderful to walk around before dinner. There were a handful of vendors on site, but we didn’t see anything that we hadn’t seen already when shopping. The luau was very large...More

As part of our Hawaiian experience couldn't leave Hawaii without attending a LUAU and this one didn't disappoint. The train ride was short and pleasant you get to feed live animals before you head back to enjoy the luau. They start you off with two...More

Overall Okay. Stifling hot. This could be easily fixed with fans, but they have none. Bartender was very rude. Did not appreciate her. Only place I’ve ever been where a husband could not get a drink for his wife. They need to post their rules...More

We did not find the entertainment to be really loud and we sat in the front row next to the stage. There were lots of young children present who appeared to enjoy the show. I believe the show was over by 9pm.
