There’s something authentic about a 'luau' along an ancient coastline of kings, and at Haleo Luau on Keauhou Bay, you'll feast on a traditional Hawaiian buffet as you listen to crashing surf, and revel in the excitement of a Polynesian show held beneath a blanket of stars. Before the meal, pick up some moves at the hula demonstration by the luau’s talented performers, or simply enjoy the ocean views looking west towards a fiery sunset. Throughout the show, this Keauhou luau details stories from right along this coast, and tells the tales of the ancient kings who once inhabited this shore.

Departure Point

Haleo Luau, Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay 78-128 Ehukai Street, Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii, HI 96740

Departure Time

5:30 PM
Upon your arrival at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay, you’ll be shown to your table and given a shell lei as part of your welcoming greeting. From the expansive gardens outside the hotel, drink in views of the Pacific Ocean and hear the rustle of palms, as you casually sip on a tropical drink and enjoy the afternoon activities.

When it’s time to eat, the luau buffet includes a filling arrangement of traditional Hawaiian cuisine, from ahi poke to kalua pork or pineapple-soy glazed beef.  Try the poi and eat like locals — using only two fingers — and cap off the meal with a delicious helping of Kona coffee chocolate cake. 

After dinner, take a journey back in time to the days of ancient kings, who lived, vacationed and were born on this coast and ruled from its rocky shores. In 1825, King Kamehameha III was born here in Keauhou Bay, and part of the show is devoted to honoring the historic Hawaiian monarch. You’ll also here tales of surfing the waves of nearby He’eia Bay, as well re-live the Battle of Kuamo’o that took place in Northern Kona. At the end of the night, stare in wonder as Polynesian fire dancers twirl rhythmically with the drums, and enjoy the live music, hula and song of this Big Island luau on the coast.

Covid. A reason to price gouge
, Jan 2021
Not sure why we got half the luau and paid full price. The few people that was there, was great. But was not even half a show and only 2.5 hr long. Not 3.
Must do experience!
, Feb 2020
Food was amazing, show was outstanding, and having the rainbow before sunset was absolutely spectacular!! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Truly a must do when visiting the island.
Lovely evening

The luau was lovely and we really enjoyed ourselves once settled. They do a wonderful job. However, Viator didn’t tell them we had paid for a Skip the Line so it was awkward as the venue didn’t plan for seating for us. They accommodated us so good on them but Viator... not good enough!
Slightly Disappointed
, Jan 2020
I was expecting to skip the line and I did not get to at all. I cannot really judge this because the way the seating was set up I could not see with everyone putting up phones to tape. I found that this was not laid out well for everyone to enjoy this event. I felt the island dancing was beautiful from what I could see but could not see much. I will not do this one again.
Great Luau!

My friend and I had a great time at the luau. The dancing was great and the food was wonderful! The drinks were free, but the Mai Tai that I got was pretty flavorless. Also, prepare yourself for sitting out in the direct sun until the sun goes down. We were also eaten alive by mosquitoes, so I advise spraying some bug spray before heading out. Overall, I had a great time, and would heartily recommend this event.

I have attended Luau's previously and this was a big disappointment. As soon as we got through registration, they offered us a flower lei for 10 or a rock necklace for free. In my past experience the lie was for free. When we eventually got to the food, it was poor although you could have as much as you wanted, but who wants more of this! I was hoping the entertainment would make me feel better, but we had only 3 ladies and 3 men dancers. My guess is only 1 of the ladies were actually a native although they were all very pretty. And I don't believe they ever did a traditional hula dance. So the 3 hour celebration ended after 2 hours and 20 minutes, which was long enough.

Just touristy enough, just culturally respectful enough. No pig ceremony, but not particularly missed. MC Auntie Tutu was warm and funny and kept things moving, musicians are very talented, and the dancers are really excellent.

This luau would have been great except that it rained and the organizers did not seem at all prepared. They handed out towels to be used for cover and later found two tents for people to stand under. Eventually the rain stopped and there was a (good) performance but not the stated 3.5 hours.

It was a very short performance and was not value for money.....
