Full description
Luau Kalamaku is an unforgettable experience and a “must see” for any visitor. The twice-weekly extravaganza has welcomed guests since 2007, offering great views from every seat.

Following dinner, the cast takes the stage for the 45-minute main show to tell the amazing story of the ancient Hawaiian legend of Kalamakū (“child of the new land); the epic voyage taken by islanders between Tahiti and Kauaʻi along one of the longest sea roads of Polynesia. Through laughter, fear, seduction and fire, a new legacy is created, born from the cherished seeds of their ancestors.

The evening begins with craft and cultural demonstrations, and Hawaiian games, followed by the traditional imu ceremony. Guests are treated to delicious traditional local cuisine, while hula dancers and musicians entertain. The show culminates with a fantastic fire dream featuring fire poi balls and traditional fire knife dancing.
