Island Breeze Luau
Taking place in the heart of Kailua-Kona at King Kamehameha the Great's former estate, the Island Breeze Luau invites you to an evening of celebrating Hawaiian culture. Enjoy a lavish island-style buffet dinner, cultural presentations and a fantastic Polynesian show with music and dances from Hawaii as well as greater Polynesia.
Your evening begins with a warm welcome and the opportunity to watch or participate in hula & story telling. Witness the arrival of the Royal Court. Following these cultural presentations is the luau feast, featuring kalua pork, fresh fish, grilled beef and island produce, as well as an open bar. After dinner, enjoy "He 'Ohana Kakou" – Island Breeze's newest production.
