An important part of Hawaii life is celebrating special occasions together with family and friends at a luau – a grand celebration of food, music and culture. Luau are often held to celebrate family milestones – a baby’s first birthday, a graduation from high school, or a wedding.
Welcoming honored guests is another reason to hold a luau, and visitors are welcomed to luau on Kauai every week. There are a variety of luau venues around the island, including the Aulii Luau at the Sheraton Kauai Resort and Spa and the Grand Hyatt Kauai Luau at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort, both on the South Shore. You’ll also find the Smith Family Garden Luau in Kapaa and the Luau Kalamaku in the historic Kilohana Plantation.
You’ll dine on kalua pig cooked in an imu (earth oven), haupia (coconut pudding) and poi (Hawaiian taro starch), among many other delightful dishes. Then you can settle in under the stars, listen to live music and watch skilled hula performances that tell stories of the islands. For a colorful, interactive experience of our culture, there’s nothing quite like an authentic luau – a must-have experience for any visit to Kauai.
