Voted the Best of West Hawaii since 2000 , the Island Breeze Lu'au and is located on the shores of Kamakahonu Bay and the historic grounds of the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. An evening filled with delicious food and authentic Island entertainment. Highlights include the re-enactment of the arrival of Kamehameha I aboard an outrigger canoe, the unearthing of the imu (underground oven), preliminary arts and crafts where you have a chance to meet the performers, a 22-dish buffet, an open bar and the finale of the Siva Afi - spectacular Samoan Fireknife dance.

after reading the reviews, we expected more. entertainment mixes new style contemporary hawaiian and some traditional music and dance. we would have preferred more traditional and less contemporary.the ocean side setting is nice! the trader vic's mai tais were adequate.miller lite and jug wine was drinkable. the kahlua pig was cold and dry-if you put some of the bbq chicken...

This was my third visit to this luau. I had looked forward to the show, some of the food, and a good Mai Tai from the bartender. Instead, for my 100.00 per adult, I arrived to a new bartender making the drinks with some kind of sour mix instead of good ingredients, barely warm food, and a truncated presentation. No... More

We booked the Island Breeze Luau after seeing reviews on TripAdvisor and when we booked our hotel. We were supposed to attend the Tuesday evening show but had to rebook last minute. They were very accommodating when I called and was able to rebook for Thursday evening. We arrived at the entrance to the luau at 5 pm but got... More

This is by far the best luau we have attended, small setting, interaction prior to the show, great seats (get there early, but there really aren't any bad seats), great food, open bar, no line ups, and the dancers were amazing, Their entry via boat was an added bonus, costumes were amazing, as was the fire dancer. We enjoyed having... More

The dancers were very professional, costumes were bright, colorful and well made. Very good show, interesting and well done. If you are just a couple, you will be seated with another couple or group. Food was fine, roast pig was a bit dry but tasty. I would definitely recommend.

This was a pretty typical luau but had a better setup than most. The pre-show area was well organized and the drinks were easy to get...no long lines. We went for the Christmas show. The food was typical luau fare but they had turkey. The meat was pretty dry but the rest of the food was good. Overall, I would... More

We enjoyed the luau. It was nice to have some entertainment during dinner. We had two little ones to entertain. The 8 month old was intensely watching everything and the 3 year old enjoyed the dancing. (both girls) Food was very good. The fire was our favorite part!!! Worth going to!!

The Island Breeze Luau was a great way to introduce our two Spainish friends to Hawaiian and Polynesian Culture. The dancers and musician enthusiastically convey their love of Hawaiian culture. The dancers manage to do a long and varied routine very well. The "Chief's" fire dance towards to the end of the show is memorable for his enthusiastic embrace of... More
