The Polynesian production at the Island Breeze luau has been voted 'best in west Hawaii,' and when you spend an evening at the King Kamehameha Kona Beach Hotel, it’s easy to see why this Big Island luau is one of the most popular in town.

Held on the shores of Kamakahonu Bay. The luau is set near Ahu’ena — King Kamehameha’s former estate — and provides visitors with a backdrop of paddlers, boaters, and Hualalai volcano. When it’s time to eat before the show, choose from a 22-dish buffet that will satisfy even the biggest eaters, and enjoy the drinks at the open bar as the sun disappears on the horizon. During the royal procession, sit back and watch as King Kamehameha arrives in an outrigger canoe and performers offer an oli, or chant, while others blow on the conch.

Over the course of the fiery Polynesian revue, you’ll travel across the Pacific Ocean from Fiji to Aotearoa, and hear dances, chants, stories, and tales from Tonga, Hawaii, and Samoa.

Performance was great but the food could have been better. I was expecting more flavor & it wasn't there. The pork was dry.
Great time

The luau was so much fun! Very informative. The food was just outstanding! Would definitely go back and will suggest this luau to anyone traveling to the big island!
The different dances from the regions
, Feb 2020
There were fun things for the kids to do before it started: clay tattoos, a game to play rolling wooden pucks between sticks out of the ground, learn the hula. The drinks were ok, food was good. The show was great for the size of their crew. It was less interactive than others I have been to. The smaller kids fell asleep, the 14/10 year old made it but were a bit done by the end. If you are looking for a well done, no gimmicks luau this is a good one to choose.

Luau was very nice and food was good. Viator's customer service prior was terrible. Never got back to me regarding transportation that is advertised as being included.
Fun show for a 1st timer

Very fun show. Food was okay but at least it had an open bar! If you’ve never been to a luau before you can’t go wrong with this one... if you have been to a luau before then this isn’t going to be anything new...

I have been twice to this luau. Consistent show each time. The food is good and the buffet line is well organized. Love that it is located outside and with an ocean view. Definitely worth seeing.
Nicely presented.

I like the incorporation of hula dance groups with dancers from children to adults at the beginning of the Luau. My view of the stage is perfect but it is crowded for that showing. I think most guests expect the dinner buffet to be extraordinary and not knowing that it is a "traditional" Hawaiian food feast. In my opinion the food in selection and tastes are satisfactory. Remember it is a traditional feast!

Although it was raining and had to be held indoors, it was worth it. Excellent entertainment. Kudos to the staff and management!
