Beautiful location and easy to watch the Royal Court come in from the water. There were several activites for kids prior to the performances. All the food was excellent and the staff was very helpful in describing some local eats. Fun pictures with dancers also.

A good overview of Polynesian culture and dancing from the various islands. The procession of the Royal Court is beautiful and very appropriate to the location. The food was tasty and there was a variety of vegetables and fruit to choose from.Set by the ocean with a sunset. Ta Da

The Island Breeze Luau was great! The show was really enjoyable, and I liked their commentator. Some of the dancers were really skilled, and it was fun to watch. They also had fire dancers at the end, and that is always impressive. The food was pretty good - the kona coffee glazed chicken was delicious, and the cucumber dish was... More

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.
