SMITH’S TROPICAL PARADISE IN THE WAILUA RIVER VALLEY
This lush 30-acre botanical and cultural garden provides an idyllic escape to enjoy Mother Nature’s creations. The garden is centrally located on the east side of Kauai, known as “The Coconut Coast,” within the Wailua Marina State Park.
Take your time and wander over a mile of meandering pathways surrounded by tropical splendor. You’ll explore the quiet, serene atmosphere of this paradise where peacocks and many other birds thrive in the lush surroundings.
View over twenty types of fruit in the Tropical Orchard including breadfruit, star fruit, jackfruit, macadamia nuts and soursop. Wander the Bamboo and Fruit forests or enjoy the colorful attraction of the Flower Wheel and Flowering Tropicals areas. Set amidst this natural backdrop are replicas of Polynesian and Filipino huts. The Japanese-themed garden island is a popular location for those who choose to get married in the gardens.
Over 50 years ago, Grandpa Smith started this family business in this sacred Wailua River Valley. They created This tropical paradise to celebrate the Hawaiian spirit of aloha that he loved and lived by. Today, four generations of the Smith family continue to honor that tradition with the most famous of Hawaiian celebrations, the luau. Come 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’ll 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 this luau, they 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.
