The Island Breeze Luau is the best show on the Big Island. You can go for a lot of adventure around Hawai'i, but good food and a musical full of history you can only have with them.

This was our first luau and we absolutely loved it! The performance was so well done. We were with friends who had been to a luau before and they felt that this one was far more professional that their previous experience. The band was very impressive! Beautiful harmonies, talented musicians. The food was very good. It was fun to try... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids, aged 10-1) loved this event! We had a great time learning about Hawaiian traditions and culture, and seeing all the beautiful dances and costumes from the different islands. The staff were great, and they really took a lot of care to make it fun for each person. We got to chat... More

This was my first luau and it was great! The food was very good, and the show was awesome! I liked how they honored all of the Polynesian Islands. The dances were fun and entertaining. The fire show was a lot of fun! So much talent! We had a wonderful time and would recommend this luau to all!

The luau was great and the food was fantastic. Even the Mai Tais at the open bar were great. We paid extra for the close seating and early service, and it was well worth it.

This was my 3rd Luau over the years but my 1st in The Big Island. I really like the feeling of intimacy. It was not a mega luau like I have done in the past. The theme of this Luau is "Ohana" family and it felt that way to me. The show was great and the food was tasty. It... More

My friends and were told that this was one of the best luaus on the island...if this was one of the best, I'd really hate to see the worst. I will say that the food was fantastic, but not worth the price tag for just the food. The open bar was ONE man in a hut serving over 100 people...yep,... More
