Hawaiian Lu’aus byIsland Breeze Productions
Experience an authentic Hawaiian lu’au at the newly renovated, oceanfront lu’au grounds of Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. Offered by Hawaii’s premier Polynesian production company, Island Breeze, our lu’aus take place on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights. You’ll enjoy a torch-lit evening of tasty Hawaiian cuisine and drinks, a display of authentic Polynesian activities, and stunning performances.
A Memorable Kona Lu’au
Your Island Breeze Lu’au begins with a lei greeting and picture taking. Next, enjoy a drink from the open bar and participate in one of the many arts and crafts activities, including weaving coconut fronds, learning how to open a coconut, learning the art of hula, and getting a Polynesian tattoo. You can also take the time to meet and talk to some of the performers.
Later in the evening, the Court Conch Herald and Court Chanter will announce the arrival of The Royal Court. During this time, you’ll enjoy an elaborate lu’au buffet with traditional Hawaiian cuisine – including Kalua Pua'a (succulent pork cooked in an underground oven), poi (an ancient Hawaiian staple food made from taro), and haupia (coconut pudding) – that will give you a true taste of the Islands. The open bar will be open from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to serve you complimentary drinks like Mai Tai cocktails, wine, beer, sodas, and non-alcoholic fruit punch.
The finale of the evening is the spectacular Island Breeze Polynesian Revue with Fijian and Maori dances of war, the graceful Hawaiian hula, and the courageous Samoan Fire knife dancer. This astonishing demonstration of bravery and skill is certainly a highlight of the evening.
