If there’s one iconic thing to do in Hawaii, it’s got to be going to a luau right? Would you believe I’ve only ever been to one luau before and it was back before my blogging days so I figured my latest trip to Kauai was high time for another one!
After doing some research, I decided to attend the Smith Family Luau because it was highly recommended as the best luau in Kauai and I also liked that it’s a family ran business (the Smith Family has been in business since 1946). Also, the luau’s setting (it’s hosted in a 30+ acre tropical garden) looks EXACTLY like Elvis’ Blue Hawaii (it was actually filmed right up the road at the Coco Palms Resort) and I’m not going to lie, that was a major selling point!
Before I get into the details of how the evening progressed, I’ll just tell you that the Smith Family Luau is completely charming. While it’s a modern operation, the setting and atmosphere will have you reminiscing of Hawaii in the 1960s. It feels very vintage, so wear your best aloha attire and get ready to step back in time.
