The luau is held in a beautiful oceanfront setting near the historic Kamakahonu Bay and Ahu’ena, King Kamehameha’s former estate in Kailua-Kona. Guests of the Island Breeze Luau will enjoy a backdrop of passing boats, outrigger canoes, Mt Hualalai and the twinkling lights of Kona. During the show, enjoy a 22-dish buffet, open bar, Polynesian arts and crafts demonstrations and a Royal Court procession. A highlight of the evening is the spectacular Polynesian Revue, consisting of cultural dances from around the islands.
Watch as a symbolic King Kamehameha I arrives by canoe, his arrival signaled by a Court Conch Herald and a Court Chanter. Follow his procession into the royal grounds to experience a luau that truly deserves Hawaii's royal title. Be amazed by other performances including Fijian and Maori dances of war, graceful Hawaiian hulas and daring Samoan fire-knife dancing.

The luau was very entertaining the whole family enjoyed it. The dancing, the songs and the food was fantastic. There was plenty to eat and drink for all ages, and there was never a lack of entertainment from start to finish.

We loved the variety of buffet items and the show was spectacular. This was our first luau and we opted to pay extra to have preferred seating close to the stage, Our table was also the first to go to the buffet. The chairs were also nicer and more comfortable than the other seats. This upgrade cost like $36 for both of us but we felt it was worth it. The hotel is very nice too.
