We have attended this Luau, and the Luau Kalamaku. Both were memorable experiences. The Smith's Luau seating for dinner was very well attended (this was in July 2017). You then move to another area for the show. The Kalamaku (in June 2011) you remained in...More

Family run luau. Excellent food and service. My husband and I enjoyed the music during dinner and the show afterward. You felt like you were with family. We will definitely return some time in the future.

This was our first time to the Smith luau. I have to say I really appreciate it the show and the food was great. I suppose that if I had to do another luau in the future I would likely choose to do one that...More

First you start with a tram ride around the plantation then you can freely walk around while waiting for the IMU ceremony to start. Dinner seating is open seating unless you are a party of 6 or larger so I advise you to find your...More

I believe we ( party of four) took a cab from the boat. I'm not positive, but I think it was around $30 dollars. Since we shared the cost, I don't recall if that was round trip, but I'm pretty sure it was for one way. Cabs... More
