Volcano Retreat has been constructed of the highest quality LEED-certified materials with a Polynesian and bamboo infused style, making it one of the most unique properties on the island. All of our on-site infrastructure systems have been designed to minimize our impact on the fragile Hawai'i environment, while not compromising on your luxurious experience. Enjoy a day of discovery, then return to the tranquil island paradise. Savor cocktails in our outdoor spa, let us schedule a relaxing massage, or just soak up the serenity of the jungle while napping in the hammock. All the indulgence and minimum footprint. It's the aloha way.

Neighbourhood information
