Boasted as the best luau on Hawaii's Big Island, this luau is steeped in a tradition that runs deep in native culture. Hosted on the historical grounds of King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel, this truly is a 'feast fit for a king'. In times past, it was restricted to the indigenous Hawaiian population as it was the grounds for the king's residence. An ancient Heiau (or temple), this local's haunt
is hallowed ground.
Held at King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel, this production fully absorbs its namesake into the show. Watch as the Royal Court of King Kamehameha I arrives. His arrival greeted by a Court Conch Herald and a Court Chanter. Follow his procession into the luau grounds to experience a luau that truly deserves Hawaii's Ali'i (or royal) title.
Come and experience first-hand the luau that is fit for kings and guests alike!
