Experience the spirit of aloha on luau grounds set within lush Smith's Gardens in the sacred Wailua River Valley, a true tropical paradise on east Kauai. Savor a delicious meal of island-style favorites, and then discover the music and dance of Polynesia during a performance that concludes with a thrilling fire knife finale.

Make your way to Smith's Garden, an oasis near the Wailua River in an area once reserved for Hawaiian royalty. You're greeted with a beautiful shell lei and then given some time to explore the verdant, 30-acre (12-ha) gardens, either on foot or with a narrated tram tour.

Next, follow your nose to the location of the imu ceremony, as members of the Smith family unearth a slow-roasted kalua pig from an underground oven. Lyrical Hawaiian music plays as you head to the bar for a Mai Tai, and continues as you fill your plate with island specialties like lomi lomi salmon, fresh-caught mahi mahi, and beef teriyaki.

After your last bite of decadent tropical dessert, the lights fade, the torches are lit, and rhythmic drums set the stage for a celebration of the song and dance of Polynesia and beyond. Marvel at the skill of graceful hula dancers and the percussive movements of Tahitian drum dancers, admire the colorful dress from around the South Pacific, and prepare to be amazed by the daring precision of Samoan fire knife dancers that bring the even to a thrilling close against the backdrop of an erupting volcano.

  • Green salad with papaya seed and guava dressings
