I loved this activity! Going to a luau is a must while visiting Kauai! This is the only beach front luau and it was awesome to have the waves crashing in the background. The dancers were amazing and I loved the variety of all the dances. The narrator was an excellent story teller and kept the performance moving. The fire chief was definitely neat to watch. I loved the crowd interaction between teaching the hula for may birthdays and special celebrations then half way through the performance they did another crowd interaction piece. The food was SO Tasty!!! The appetizers were great and the dinner was AMAZING. The Kauai pork was delicious, but I think my favorite main course was the beef. The staff was attentive and brought drinks pretty regularly and if not you could just walk up to the bar and grab some. The luau ended around 8:30, so very kid friendly still. If you are willing to spend the extra money I suggest purchasing the premier tickets, because you get front row seats and fresh lei's.

We tried this luau because of some unfavorable comments about OTHER luaus left in the guestbook at our rented condo. We had a wonderful time - the food was pretty good, better than expected at a big luau. The entertainment was excellent! The waitpersons were very friendly and fast, generous with offers of mai tais or blue hawaiians or juices, and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Best Luau EVER!!!! Food was great, but the performances were spectacular on this beautiful beach. My favorite was the fire chief. His performance kept me on the edge of my seat. You definitely want to get premier tickets- fresh lei's and front row seating. So glad we picked this luau.

It was Monday evening and the last day if March in 2014. We weren't sure if we would get to see the luau on the beach due to rains earlier in the day. We lucked out! Yea! Our party of seven all enjoyed the food, service, and entertainment. Our two year old granddaughter was mesmerized by it all! They included the crowd a lot for participation and so that made it more fun for the kids! We have been to three previous luaus and this by far was the best! It was in a more intimate surrounding that we didn't feel like we were being shuttled through like cattle. its definitely worth the premium seats as they give you priority seating and dining! The Sheraton has a lovely beach that shouldn't be missed. The view on the ocean was ideal for this luau! Thanks to the Sheraton for haring their property and for the Aulii Luau company for providing top notch entertainment and service! We had a blast! Our picture of
our family even turned out great!

We have been to several Luau on Kauai, and this Aulii Luau was the BEST! From the moment we arrived, we were in Paradise. The checkin line fronts the ocean, and during the wait the staff offered us an assortment of exotic cocktails and non alcoholic juices as we watched the waves crashing on the broad sandy beach. Once we entered the intimate lawn area, we enjoyed complimentary appetizers and more tasty beverages. I'm not usually big on Luau fare, but the food and its presentation at the Sheraton were unsurpassed. There was something for everyone, and I found myself enjoying the meal very much. The show, with the backdrop of the sun setting on the Pacific, was well narrated and and really well done! Our two young boys watched the fire dancer touch the torch with his tongue just feet away, and we were not even in the preferred seating area! Memorable.The entertainment was top-notch and really enjoyed by all ages in our group. Thank you, Sheraton Kauai, for reinventing your Luau as the best ever! Do not miss this one!
