Fodor's Review

The village is dramatically ensconced at the base of a steep, long, winding road right down to the Wailua River. In the days of King Kaumualii, it made the perfect hideout to tuck away his war canoes in this crook of the river. Today, there's a replica Hawaiian village in place of war canoes—numerous thatched-roof structures and abundant plant life along with traditional Hawaiian games. Yet, the lack of human activity here makes it seem abandoned, which may be why Hollywood

found it an appealing location for the movie Outbreak. Visitors can rent canoes for the day and paddle up to the Fern Grotto or Secret Falls.

Needs new management

I went here for the canoe ride to the Fern Grotto. I called a day ahead and they said to come by around 9:15am. We showed up and they said that they no longer take canoe rides to the Fern Grotto. (Did they change their policy overnight?!) The staff acted as if they didn't know what they were doing. Pretty grounds with peacocks and chickens but overall, a terrible company!
