Property information

Blending with 4 acres of secluded native Hawaiian ʻōhiʻa tree forest, our tropical nirvana awaits you halfway between Hilo and Volcano National Park making it the perfect base for exploring the magical island of Hawai'i. 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

Volcano Retreat is located in the "Goldilocks Zone" or the perfect temperature. The retreat is located at an elevation of 1,500 ft above sea level, up the side of Kilauea Volcano. Year long day or night our temperatures stay between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. You will never be too hot or too cold.
