Island Breeze Luau
Celebrating more than 25 years at the King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach hotel, Island Breeze is Kona’s favorite luau. Awarded “Best of West Hawaii” since 2000, the internationally recognized cast has traveled the world sharing the aloha of the islands including performances at the Olympic Games and festivals on every continent.
The Island Breeze Luau is a cultural experience that shouldn't be missed. Enjoy a breathtaking combination of oceanfront dining and the beachfront of historic Kamakahonu Bay and Ahu Ena, Kamehameha the Great's former estate in Kailua-Kona. Guests of the Island Breeze Luau enjoy a backdrop of passing fishing boats, outrigger canoes, and the lights of Kona and Mount Hualalai. This is one of Hawaii’s best activities and an amazing luau.
Considered a “Royal Hawaiian Experience”, the luau features a 22 dish buffet brimming with delicious fish, meat and fresh Big Island produce. Local favorites include lomi lomi salmon, lau lau, poke and delicious Kalua pig cooked to perfection in an imu located right on the lu’au grounds. The luau meal is complimented by an open bar.
Once seated, guests are invited to participate in Polynesian arts and crafts demonstrations, meet performers they will see on stage later in the evening and watch the Royal Court procession (representing King Kamehameha I and his court).
Highlighting the evening is the spectacular Polynesian Revue. Guests will be captivated watching the dancers from throughout Polynesia celebrate their love for the islands. The favorites include the graceful Hawaiian hula, exciting Tahitian otea and the dangerous and fascinating Samoan fireknife dance.
Held under the stars on the historic grounds of the Marriott Courtyard King Kamehamehama’s Kona Beach Hotel. The hotel is located adjacent to the pier on Kailua Bay, on Palani Road in Kailua-Kona. It is within walking distance of many visitor accommodations. The luau is easily accessible from the Kohala Coast Resort to the north and the Keauhou Beach Resort to the south.
