If you call the concierge desk directly, they will take care of you. They gave us a kama'aina discount. We sat right by the stage and hit the buffet first. Drink station as well.
Hi can you direct me to how I can make a booking for November ?

Guests of the Island Breeze Luau will be amazed with a display of authentic Polynesian activities, cuisine, and performances.

Island Breeze Luau, located in right on the edge of the ocean of the King Kamehameha Hotel is rated the best lu'au on the Big Island by kama'aina (local residents)visitors and travel writers. The luau begins with a lei greeting and picture taking. An open bar, arts and crafts await you. The imu (traditional underground oven) ceremony, is also a part of the exciting beginning to your Island Breeze ohana (family). There are many ways to participate in the luau activities: weave a coconut frond, learn how to open a coconut, learn the art of hula, get a Polynesian tattoo, and take the time to meet and talk to some of the performers.
