Description

from Haleo Luau
Island Breeze Productions presents Haleo each Monday and Friday 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.

"Haleo Luau"
February, 2018
Every Luau says they are the best. I read reviews on them all and decided on the Luau at the Sheraton Resort in Kona since we were staying there and the reviews were great! Not disappointed. My 2 daughters weren't too excited when I told them we were going to a luau but quickly changed their minds once we got there. Hawaii weather was great, food was fantastic, setting was great and the entertainment was a 10+. A must to see when you are on the Big Island.

Tip: Bring your appetite there are so many choices. The pulled pork from the pig roasted all day was the best that I have ever eaten!!!

We have gone to over a dozen luaus spanning a couple of decades. We went to the Haleo Luau at the Sheraton at Keauhou Bay last night. I almost did not book a luau based on some past reviews of a number of different luaus around Kona. We have been to every luau at every major hotel on the big island in the last decade. This is a COMPLETELY new show. New dances, new stories, new host and with the exception of a couple of old cast members everything is fresh and new including costumes. The food was excellent and in the spirit of Hawaiian cuisine. Plenty of variety for those on a specific kind of diet. Parking is NO problem. You pick up a ticket when you enter the parking lot so the gate will open and once the show is complete the gates were wide open and we were out of there in a flash. The band played for 2 hours. Yes, we got a lei that we kept after getting our picture. No pressure to keep the picture if you do not want it. I can't speak to the cash bar which remained open till the end of the show after your one free May Tai to start the evening. Checkin was a breeze and there is not a bad seat with kids and parents invited to sit on mats inches from the stage. Every cast member had big smiles all night and stayed around after the show to chat. The pre-dinner games were fun and we did several. This is one show we look forward to seeing next year! Excellent Luau. Mahalo!!!!

We spent our 10 year Anniversary in Hawaii. A Luau was suggested and we decided that would be a great anniversary dinner and show. It turned out amazing! The show was great, Auntie Tutu was hilarious and the Mai Tai supply was endless!

Was warned not to expect too much from the food but was pleasantly surprised. Staff calls you table by table to the buffet which moves quickly and is constantly being restocked so they never run out of anything. Dishes are labeled if Gluten Free. Lots to choose from. The GF Teriyaki Beef was amazing and such a treat! My vegan daughter got a special plate delivered to pur table. Desserts and coffee were plentiful. Show was great but it started to rain so we left a little early but performers were so professional. Well worth the price!

"Great First Luau!"

This was my first time in Hawaii and my very first luau and I was so impressed with everything! Honestly, 5 stars just for the special precautions with my vegan diet. The staff was super attentive and they made me my own plates of food and dessert. The performers were awesome and the MC was great at storytelling. Some of the reviews complain that there was too much storytelling, but I thought it was the perfect amount. I walked out of the luau with so much knowledge about Hawaiian culture when I previously had none. The seats were really good despite the fact that I showed up late, and it seemed like there were plenty of places to stand and watch if your seats weren't good for viewing the stage. I was so happy that there wasn't a whole dead pig there too. The only thing that could have made this better would have been flower leis instead of the seashell necklaces. I picked my own flowers from the trees around the luau but I thought we would be given flower necklaces upon arriving.

Reviewed November 27, 2018
So maybe I was under the wrong impression. I thought Luaus were fun and entertaining. This was a complete snooze fest. The Lei they give u is wack.... they try to sell u a flower lei. The welcome drink was ok.... the chips on the table to hold u over were cool. Open bar was cool.... Show was Zzzzzzzzz. Music sounded redundant, dancers wernt bad but boring.Very low energy. There were I think 2-3 high energy performances MAX!! I wanted to fall asleep. Food was ok.... need chicken options. No live on site roasted pig which was a good thing.... desserts were cool. My expectations were way too high. I really thought this was going to be the highlight of my trip.... NOT!
