My family will be visiting the BI (Kona) on March 4-18. I have 2 daughters age 9 and 6 that have there hearts set on going to a luau. They want to see fire dancers and hula dancers just like in the movie LILO AND STITCH. My husband and I are interested in a luau that would serve authentic and good food. I have been told that there are no more authentic luaus! Any suggestions.

I would agree with choosing the one at the Royal Kona Resort - good entertainment and food. I especially lovge the fact that the background to the show are the waves crashing on the lava rocks - really nice to see and hear at night.

If this does not work out there is also one at the King Kamehameha.

I went a few years ago to the Island Breeze luau at the King Kam hotel. I liked it.

Some people on this board will disagree, I think ... but the show was great fun, and we had good seats. (Yes, they have the fire dancers -- and this was my favorite part :)

As for the food, it's okay. I don't particularly care for lau lau, chicken long rice, lomi salmon, poi and other things that are sometimes served at luaus. You may not, either, as it is quite different from what I eat on a regular basis. But it's interesting :).

Kona Village is supposed to have the best luau ... they also have fire dancers, I think. Costs about $20 more/person than King Kam.
