First the pluses: Musicians and dancers and costumes were excellent, as far as I can judge. And the food that we got was jummy. It‘s open air at the shore. Though I don‘t know what would have happened, had it rained... The hula lesson was...More

A wonderful experience. We had a great time. Very organized, good food, wonderful show. We would recommend this show. Loved the water entry of the performers. There was lots to do for the kids including hula lessons. They really made us feel like family.

These people know how to put on a show, and the hotel does a great job in putting on a feast. For a night you'll never forget, take in this show by one of the top groups anywhere.

If you call the concierge desk directly, they will take care of you. They gave us a kama'aina discount. We sat right by the stage and hit the buffet first. Drink station as well.

Guests of the Island Breeze Luau will be amazed with a display of authentic Polynesian activities, cuisine, and performances. Island Breeze Luau, located in right on the edge of the ocean of the King Kamehameha Hotel is rated the best lu'au on the Big Island by kama'aina (local residents)visitors and travel writers. The luau begins with a lei greeting and picture taking. An open bar, arts and crafts await you. The imu (traditional underground oven) ceremony, is also a part of the exciting beginning to your Island Breeze ohana (family). There are many ways to participate in the luau activities: weave a coconut frond, learn how to open a coconut, learn the art of hula, get a Polynesian tattoo, and take the time to meet and talk to some of the performers.
