After making your own way to the Sheraton Keauhou Resort on Keauhou Bay, your hosts greet you with a shell lei and show you to your table, which is situated in the spacious gardens outside the hotel. Take in views of the ocean, framed by palm trees, as you sip a drink participate in preliminary activities.
The luau dinner buffetincludes a variety of Hawaiian-style dishes featuring fresh seafood, meat and vegetable dishes that shine with tropical flavors. Try specialties such as Hawaiian ahi poke, salted island fish, kalua pork and pineapple-soy glazed beef, then top it off with mouth-watering desserts like Kona coffee chocolate cake and pineapple upside-down cake.
At the end of your meal, sit back and be transported by a spectacular Polynesian show. A variety of dancers perform traditional hula, fire dancing and other feats accompanied by excellent live music and singing. During the performance, you hear stories of the battle of Kuamo’o, the birth of the Hawaiian King Kamehameha III and surfing tales from He'eia Bay. It's an excellent introduction to Hawaiian culture and history and a memorable finale to your luau.

I have attended Luau's previously and this was a big disappointment. As soon as we got through registration, they offered us a flower lei for 10 or a rock necklace for free. In my past experience the lie was for free. When we eventually got to the food, it was poor although you could have as much as you wanted, but who wants more of this!
I was hoping the entertainment would make me feel better, but we had only 3 ladies and 3 men dancers. My guess is only 1 of the ladies were actually a native although they were all very pretty. And I don't believe they ever did a traditional hula dance.
So the 3 hour celebration ended after 2 hours and 20 minutes, which was long enough.
Just touristy enough, just culturally respectful enough. No pig ceremony, but not particularly missed. MC Auntie Tutu was warm and funny and kept things moving, musicians are very talented, and the dancers are really excellent.
This luau would have been great except that it rained and the organizers did not seem at all prepared. They handed out towels to be used for cover and later found two tents for people to stand under. Eventually the rain stopped and there was a (good) performance but not the stated 3.5 hours.
This was our first trip to Hawaii, needless to say we spent most our time sight-seeing. The locals were lovely and treated the tourist with courtesy and kindness.
Our hotel, Kona Seaside Hotel was beyond wonderful. The staff made us feel right at home and the entire place was immaculate. They were constantly cleaning and making sure everything was good. The hotel clients consisted of people from all over the world and we all agreed on how lovely everything was.
There was a 'chillaxing' open-air restaurant, Splasher's, on the hotel grounds that seemed to service mostly everyone in that area.This offered all types of food and the prices were very good.
Just across the street were 2 public beaches, unfortunately I can't swim that well so I didn't venture in beyond my knees.
What drew me to this island was the active volcano, I don't have the words to describe the wonder and magnificence of the area or the entire island for that matter.
This is my first luau so no basis of comparison. Food was very good, great variety. Entertainment was very good also, narration by Auntie was very interesting. Would I do it again -- I would do another luau but probably try a different one, just for fun! If you go-you'll enjoy this one.
This was an excellent Luau with activities for the whole family to participate in and enjoy. We got to try authentic Hawaiian foods and had lessons on Hawaiian activities. The hostess was fantastic with a warm demeanor! Family friendly entertainment and educational, fun setting! Unfortunately ours was moved inside because of the rain, but they still made it a wonderful experience!
Aunty Tutu was the best hostess we could have asked for made for a very homie atmosphere during the Luau
Not a single complaint the entire Luau was wonderful from beginning to end. Especially loved that the food was well catered to keep from running out and the service was fantastic. All the performers were wonderful as well. Thank you for a wonderful time.
