The B&B, nearby village and national park is a must-stay destination.
A Native Hawaiian Rain Forest
The bed & breakfast retreat is nestled under a lush canopy of giant tree ferns and lofty Ohia trees in a native Hawaiian rain forest, 3800 feet above the sea, on the slopes of Kilauea Volcano. Each retreat accommodation is set into the misty mossy surroundings with deep respect for its wild natural beauty, and emerges as a living part of the primal landscape. The magical rain forest setting offers world travelers an intimate getaway, a peaceful retreat and an active adventure in a place of great natural beauty.
Kilauea Volcano - See the glow in the park after dark!View the nighttime glow of active lava at the summit of Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, ten minutes from Volcano Rainforest Retreat B&B. Witness the 2018 1600ft collapse of Kilauea Caldera and the ongoing recreation of new land at the summit crater. The trails in the park are open and visitors can safely walk along the crater rim day and night. A few miles from Volcano Rainforest Retreat B&B, hike, bike or drive the magnificent landscape at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Hawaiian Islands’ most visited natural attraction. Explore primal rain forest, lava tubes, desert trails, ancient petroglyphs, old lava flows and new land where the lava once entered the sea from one of the most active volcanoes on earth. Experience ‘aloha aina', love of the land, and the enduring spirit of the Hawaiian people and their culture.
