Island Breeze Luau - King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel
Held under the stars on the historic grounds of King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel, located in the heart of Kailua-Kona, the Island Breeze Luau invites you to experience a traditional Hawaiian luau celebration that includes a delicious buffet dinner and an authentic Polynesian show.
Your evening begins with a warm lei greeting and a chance to watch and participate in traditional arts & crafts. Witness the "Kalua'ana o ka Pua'a", the uncovering of the imu (underground oven) to reveal the roast pig. Island Breeze is also the only Hawaiian luau that features the arrival of the Royal Court aboard an outrigger canoe.
The luau activities are followed by a lavish Hawaiian buffet dinner which features a variety of delicacies, including kalua pork, fresh island fish, grilled beef and island produce, as well as an open bar. After dinner, it’s showtime! Sit back, relax and enjoy "He 'Ohana Kakou," an exciting Polynesian revue featuring music and dances from Hawaii and other Polynesian islands.
