Traditional Kauai Luau

With four generations of Smith’s working in their luau to this day, this is the quintessential Hawaiian experience. The family holds down the most successful, traditional Kauai luau because they specialize in the authentic feast (pa’ina) and clearly represent traditional dance and music performance. There is a reason why Smith’s is the longest standing luau on Kauai, as it is a tried and true experience, with a heart of gold in the center.


Family Style Luau

Located in Wailua; the pinnacle of Kauai’s ancient royal capital and religious center, provides a stunning atmosphere with loads of tropical plants, trees, flowers and birds. Strolling along the banks of the Smith’s Wailua river tropical garden, you will witness the sheer beauty of the islands from a riverside view. This tropical garden is well renowned as a venue for large upscale events, such as Kauai’s yearly celebration ‘Taste of Hawaii’ as well as hosting lavish wedding ceremonies.


Tahitian Drumming

Also served at this delectable buffet is teriyaki beef, yummy fish, chicken, salads, desserts and of course every families favorite, Poi!  Enjoy endless food, mai-tai’s, beer and wine, while being entertained with live music by one of the Smith families talented musicians. Celebrate traditional song, chants and dance as you witness the beauty and grace of Hula, the power and energy of Tahitian Dance and a mesmerizing Samoan fire knife dancer. A very family friendly environment; perfect for children and comes complete with Pele’s erupting volcano! Share this traditional Kauai luau experience with family and loved ones.
