Sadly the Kona Village was damaged in the tsunami that hit the Big Island from Japan in spring 2011 and is closed until further notice. (as of Aug 2011).
This is reputed to be the best luau on the island. The setting is very nice. To get good seats you need to get there early and do not sit at the back in the raised section, I doubt you will see much from there.
Once it starts to get dark, the evening starts, you see the ovens used for cooking and the process is explained to you. This is very interesting. Shortly after that the food is served. The food is Ok, no complaints but nothing special. The pork and turkey are very tender and moist but lacking in flavour. The other foods and desserts are pretty standard buffet fare.
The show is the good part. We saw the show featuring dances from all the polynesian islands and thoroughly enjoyed it. The fire dance is the spectacular ending to the show and is impressive.
