As soon as we got to Kauai, we started asking around for the best luau on the island. 100% of the locals said the Smith Tropical Paradise Luau was the best, so we booked it! The night we went, rainbows lined the sky. There was a slight mist but it stopped as soon as we got to the plantation. Peacocks welcomed us right at the entrance, and as soon as we walked through they took us for a motorized tour of the gardens. They raised the pig and called the horns for dinner. First was cocktail hour with mai tais and the open bar. Then we feasted! The food was AMAZING: pulled pork, and teriyaki beef, salad, Okinawan potatoes, garlic cake and pineapple cake -just to name some. The show after FLOORED us. Poor Rob was still a little drugged out from our Na Pali coast tour, and kept falling asleep during all the hula dancing. But Pam and I were bright-eyed and entertained the whole time. They brought a different dance in from each heritage that had come to Hawaii those years ago. It was magical. Highly recommend this luau to any of you going to Kauai!
