Description

from Haleo Luau
Island Breeze Productions presents Haleo each Monday evening in the incomparable oceanfront setting at Sheraton Keauhou Bay's Bay View Lawn.

Haleo, the “voice of life,” celebrates the history of Keauhou and the heart of those who came from this land. The talented dancers and musicians of Island Breeze Productions invite you to join them on a journey to the past and experience a special time in Hawaiian history.

Held on the oceanfront of the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa, this luau brings you back to a time that is remembered and cherished. From the birth of Kamehameha III to surfing tales of He’eia Bay to the battle of Kuamo’o, performers share the stories of ancient Hawaii through language, culture, music and dance. Keauhou translated into English means “new era.” The area is significant for being the playground of Hawaii’s royalty, ali’i.

Meet the dancers before the show and “talk story.” Enjoy live dinner music under the Hala trees on the southern shores of Keauhou Bay and indulge in a Hawaiian feast that’s so unique it can only be found in paradise.

"Small Luau"

This luau was a bit different than others we have been too. It's a much smaller and intimate experience. The food was good and the performance was very professional. The stories the MC told were very interesting and captivating:) If you are staying at the Sheraton there is a discount despite what the concierge might tell you (you have to pay the day of at check in to receive this discount, about $20 off a person). Not sure how this luau compares to others on the big island but if you're staying at the Sheraton I think the convenience makes this a great find.

This is a very interactive experience. The narrator, Auntie Tutu (really!), is excellent and gives a lot of information about the islands and history. They include teaching some Hawaiian games, a hula lesson, and temporary Hawaiian ratios. The music was awesome, with a master slack key guitarist, great vocals, and 'ukuleles. On the negative side, the food was spotty: the Kalua pork was average, while we had high expectations. There was, however, plenty to eat (AYCE) and an open bar.

"Great food, entertainment a little lacking"

There was some good and some bad with this lu’au. It is rated as the best lu’au on the Big Island, but the lu’au in Maui was better. I will provide some references comparing the two la’uas because those are the two I am familiar with. The good: Food here is very good and was better than the show in Maui. They provide a buffet style, rather than family style, so you have to go and get your food. The food is extremely tasty and they provide whatever you might think of at a lu’au, and more! No, there is no whole roasting pig, but their pulled pork makes up for that. Also, drinks are very good and made to taste. Again, it is a bar, so you must go get your own drinks, rather than having a server bring them to you. The bar is an open cash bar, that is included in the price of the lu’au. I tipped the bartender quite a bit in the beginning and she made my drinks very boozy the entire rest of the night. The bad: The entertainment was just okay. Auntie Tutu makes this show. She does a great job of keeping everyone entertained and keeping active. They do a few games and activities to keep people entertained in the beginning of the show. It kind of feels like an old person activities board, rather than a lu’au. With that being said, Auntie Tutu is super charming and keeps the show going. The biggest problem with the show is after the food. The fire knife dancer (not plural, there is only one) was good. He dropped early on in the show, but did a good job recovering. However, it seemed like most of the entertainment was before food, and once the food happened, it was fire knife dancer and done. Still a good show, just not up to par with the lu’au in Maui.

We have attended many luaus. The food here is excellent and there is a large selection of dishes. However, the entertainment, leadership, and ambience is one of the worst. We were slightly disappointed with Haleo Luau. Also there is a lot of just waiting around.
