We did this as a bucket list type item during our week long trip to Kona. $400 could have been spent better going to a decent restaurant and enjoying the island charm without the cattle call buffet and cheesy show. The food was fine, the drinks were poor, the show was not anything to remember. Buffet line with pork, beef... More

The food as quite good for a buffet type of venue. We have been to this one twice now and would... More

My wife and I's first luau and we had a wonderful experience. The food was phenomenal, even the poi!. We also enjoyed the ambiance and performance of the dancers; we especially liked how multiple Polynesian islands were represented, not just Hawaii.

We didn't know which luau to book as there are a number of them with good reviews. We reserved this one last minute and were not disappointed. The food was well done and the performances were very entertaining. They had some fun events while they were seating people including games and hula dance lessons. There was an upgrade that you...

Description
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.
