The Island Breeze Luau is held at the scenic and historic location of King Kameahameha’s Kona residence. This luau features the beach arrival of the Royal Court, demonstrations of coconut husking, a traditional luau buffet and full open bar. The show includes dances from all over the islands of Polynesia and concludes with a fire knife dance. This luau is conveniently located in downtown Kailua-Kona right next to the harbor on the ocean side of the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha’s Beach Hotel.

Premium reserved seating is now available at this luau. This upgrade fee gets you a prefered check-in line, reserved up-front seating and preferential buffet service (which means you get to eat first!) This upgrade is well worth it … it is nice to know that you are able to walk in just before the luau starts knowing you will be sitting near the front!

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Which luau to attend on the Big Island? Well, things are getting pretty interesting in the luau scene on the Big Island.

For those who are staying in Kailua-Kona town or one of the condo properties along Ali’i Drive and you don’t relish the idea of an hour drive to and from your luau, you might want to attend the Island Breeze Luau which is held at the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha’s Beach Hotel near the pier at the Kailua-Kona Harbor. This luau offers a feeling of authenticity due to its incredibly historic location. The beach side arrival by canoe of the luau’s Royal Court is very unique and makes for great photos. This luau has been voted the “Best Luau on the Big Island” by the readers of West Hawaii Today for seven years in a row. We really appreciate the reserved seating upgrade; for those of you who are reading this a few weeks or more before your arrival you should grab some of these reserved up front seats while you have the chance!

For guests who are staying in Waikoloa, Mauna Lani, or Hapuna, we recommend the Hawaii Loa Luau.   A good Wednesday night choice with the luau at the Waikoloa Marriott.  If you are staying north of the airport, you don’t want to drive all the way into town when the best luau choices are close by. If you aren’t up for the drive, get reserved seating at the Island Breeze Luau.
