  • luaugirls
The Smith Family welcomes you to join them for an unforgettable night of food, music and dance. Come to the Smiths' beautiful tropical garden in Wailua River Valley, near the famous Wailua Fern Grotto, and take part in a "must-do" attraction in Kauai! Witness the traditional imu ceremony, in which cooked pigs are removed from an underground oven. The luau feast begins shortly after, featuring a menu of Hawaiian and local island cuisine. The main attraction of the night comes with the Rhythm of Aloha show, a pageant including performances of Hawaiian hula dancing, Tahitian drum dance, and spectacular Samoan fire knife dancing.
Value Combo! Be sure to book our exclusive cruise & luau combo with Wailua River Cruise to Fern Grotto for a complete experience. You will enjoy the 3:30pm cruise first so when you return from the boat cruise, you can check in to your luau right away!
