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. 

Highlights

  • 3.5-hour luau in Keauhou Bay, Big Island
  • Participate in preliminary activities that take place before dinner
  • Sip unlimited drinks including mai tais and tropical fruit punch
  • Taste a variety of delicious Polynesian dishes
  • See a spectacular Polynesian dance and music show
  • Learn about Hawaiian royals such as King Kamehana III and other legends from the Big Island

What You Can Expect

Haleo Luau on the Big Island

Haleo Luau Dancers

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.

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 was our first trip to Hawaii, needless to say we spent most our time sight-seeing. The locals were lovely and treated the tourist with courtesy and kindness.
Our hotel, Kona Seaside Hotel was beyond wonderful. The staff made us feel right at home and the entire place was immaculate. They were constantly cleaning and making sure everything was good. The hotel clients consisted of people from all over the world and we all agreed on how lovely everything was.
There was a 'chillaxing' open-air restaurant, Splasher's, on the hotel grounds that seemed to service mostly everyone in that area.This offered all types of food and the prices were very good.
Just across the street were 2 public beaches, unfortunately I can't swim that well so I didn't venture in beyond my knees.
What drew me to this island was the active volcano, I don't have the words to describe the wonder and magnificence of the area or the entire island for that matter.

This was an excellent Luau with activities for the whole family to participate in and enjoy. We got to try authentic Hawaiian foods and had lessons on Hawaiian activities. The hostess was fantastic with a warm demeanor! Family friendly entertainment and educational, fun setting! Unfortunately ours was moved inside because of the rain, but they still made it a wonderful experience!

This is my first luau so no basis of comparison. Food was very good, great variety. Entertainment was very good also, narration by Auntie was very interesting. Would I do it again -- I would do another luau but probably try a different one, just for fun! If you go-you'll enjoy this one.

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.....
