For over fifty years the Smith Family Garden Luau as been hosting visitors on the island of Kaua’i, celebrating the spirit of Aloha.
Located within the Smith’s Tropical Paradise in the Wailua Marina State Park on the east side of the island, on grounds once reserved for Hawaiian royalty. Your evening begins as you receive your shell lei and you either take a narrated tram tour or a leisurely stroll around the 30-acre garden, but be advised the last tram tour departs at 530pm.
As with all luaus the main part of a luau for most is the feast, and you will not be disappointed, but for those that can’t wait for the music and tradidtional show they are in for a treat as well with Hawaiian hula, Tahitian drum dances and popular Samoan fire knife dance.
** Great location for destination weddings

Old Lahaina Luau – a Traditional Hula and feast – winner year after year for many awards including Best Luau and Best of Maui.
Located oceanfront at 1251 Front Street, Lahaina, Maui the location and layout of the traditional luau grounds around a circular performance platform affords everyone a great view. This Luau sells out nightly, so reservations in advance are a must. Also a great location for destination weddings
Guest are greated with a flower lei greeting, tropical drink and personalized souvenir program, then escorted to your table and familiarized with the Luau grounds. The feast a wonderful buffet and premium open bar, at sunset the entertainment begins, the Hula is performed with respect and honor to ancient Hawaii – telling the story from Polynesian migration, the relationship of the Missionaries and the Merry Monarch (King Kalakaua) up to the more contemporty Hula.
Feast of LeLe is not your average luau, as the sun begins to set over the romantic, intimate oceanfront setting –The perfect luau for foodies.
Excellent food is served plated and served as courses, as opposed to buffet style of most other luaus throughout the islands. Another feature that I like is the layout of the tables as opposed to long tables that are found at many luaus. Attention paid to every detail of the evening.
I strongly suggest you book far in advance because it is likely to be sold out if you wait till you arrive on island.
‘AHA’AINA – A Royal Celebration-held oceanfront at the Royal Hawaiian Resort on O’ahu– pays homage to Helumoa , the legendary playground of Hawaiian Royalty.
Waikiki’s only oceanfront sit-down vignette dinner show is a culinary journey through history -before there was a luau, there was Aha’Aina-(translates to gathering for a meal) a feast of food, mele(song)and hula.
Sit-down dinner service, open bar and spectacular entertainment ( the royal family costumes are gorgeous, loved the inclusion of the United States military in the timeline of the history of O’ahu as well)
Another great luau for foodies- Held on Monday night only, so suggest you book before arriving to the island.
