Smith's Tropical Paradise Luau
KAUAI Activities - Over 50 years ago, a grandpa started this Kauai Luau family business in this sacred Wailua River Valley and created a tropical paradise to celebrate the Hawaiian spirit of aloha that he loved and lived by. Today, four generations of the Smith's family continue to honor that tradition with the most famous of Hawaiian celebrations, the luau. Come and share the traditions of our island home and become part of our ohana.
Of course, the heart of any luau is the pa'ina, the feast, and we'll make sure you don't go hungry. Kalua pig roasted in the earthen imu oven. Cousin Gary's secret recipe for teriyaki beef. Ono mahimahi and tasty chicken adobo. Our family bowl of poi (which Grandma insists you try). We'lll even get some of you up on stage to try some hula moves as dinner winds down.
Food may be the heart of a luau, but music is the soul. Our Hawaiian ancestors preserved their history by passing down songs and chants called mele. At our luau, we celebrate these traditions, as well as the songs and dances from other cultures that live in our tropical paradise. The lyrical sway of the Hawaiian hula, the colorful precision of the Tahitian drum dances and the fiery emotion of the Samoan fire knife dance all speak deeply of the people who have come to call Hawaii home. We proudly share this rhythm of aloha with you.
