Owner description: Voted the Best of West Hawaii since 2000 , the Island Breeze Lu'au and is located on the shores of Kamakahonu Bay and the historic grounds of the Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. An evening filled with delicious food and authentic Island entertainment. Highlights include the re-enactment of the arrival of Kamehameha I aboard an outrigger canoe, the unearthing of the imu (underground oven), preliminary arts and crafts where you have a chance to meet the performers, a 22-dish buffet, an open bar and the finale of the Siva Afi - spectacular Samoan Fireknife dance.

“Gluten free options”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

As a person who does not choose to eaten gluten free as a lifestyle choice eating in any restaurant is a crapshoot. I was fearful to eat anything until speaking with someone in charge. I was grateful to the maitre' d Mike who provided me with a list of the GF items. On top of the amount of safe food items the entertainment was lively, colorful and informative. A great entertainment value for the price.

“Memorable Evening at Island Breeze Luau!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We enjoyed our evening at the Island Breeze Luau! The food was delicious and we appreciated that each dish was labeled so we knew what we were eating. (Some people have food allergies so this is very helpful.) The seating was handled in an organized manner. We had an opportunity to visit with those people sitting next to us before it was our turn to go to the buffet. The entertainment was excellent--so nice to see the dancers smiling and loving what they were doing. Having the ocean as a backdrop to the luau added much enjoyment to this beautiful evening. The Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel is awesome and we highly recommend the Island Breeze Luau!!! :)

“Good experience”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We are staying at the Courtyard and received a Marriott reward discount. The show was good, there was quality food, and the drinks were included. The only complaint is that it seemed short. We were seated around 5 and the show was over at 7.

“Great over 20 yrs ago, still great today!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I went to this luau with my parents in 1991. I took my wife there last week for New Year's Eve, and it was still great! The experience has changed some. You can get Polynesian tattoos (temporary), learn how to dance the hula, learn to spin poi balls, and other crafts before the meal is served. The food was great, the open bar was great, and all of the performers were great! The wife and I are planning to bring the kids for our next vacation to Hawai'i, and will definitely bring them to the luau!
