Volcano House Hotel

Volcano House Hotel

There is a list of activities that come to mind when visitors make plans to visit the Hawaiian Islands. Surfing, snorkeling, pineapple plantation touring, Kona coffee tasting, luau dining, and visiting the Big Island's famed Kilauea Volcano. Kilauea is a mysterious beast that lures visitors from all over the world to its steaming crater but keeps them at an arm's length due to its fierce and temperamental nature. Even with the bevy of boat, hiking, and helicopter tours available Kilauea seems like a gamble to many - you never know when it's going to put on a show. Looking for the best way to hedge your bets with Kilauea? Spend a few nights with her.

The reopening of the Volcano House Hotel is one of the greatest things to happen to tourism on the Big Island. Steep in history this piping hot accommodation attraction is sure to fill to capacity for many years to come as long as Pele (Hawaiian Goddess of Fire that resides in spirit in the region) permits.

As far as locations go the Volcano House Hotel, with its rugged landscape and a close proximity (as in ridiculously close) view of Halema‘uma‘u Crater at the summit of Kilauea, offers the perfect departure for those that have already explored the Big Island's beach front hotels and resorts.

The renovations that reopened the Volcano House Hotel opted out of post modern contemporary design in favor of true island interior and architectural accents. If one was to close their eyes on the Mainland to open them suddenly within a suite at the Volcano House Hotel they would instantly know they were in Hawaii - exactly as it should be. The Aloha service too conveys what people come to these islands for in the first place.

Even though the fire breathing natural landscape of the region demands you leave the comforts of the accommodation to explore with wanderlust you'll return each evening ecstatic to join other guests within the walls of The Rim for fine, but far from pretentious, Hawaiian dining as the sun sets and Kilauea takes over with its own orange, red, and yellow hues. The experience of enjoying the Hilo Coffee-rubbed Lamb or the White Pineapple Wrapped Opakapaka while sipping a sparkling Hula O Maui as Kilauea glows outside of the expansive windows is proverbially incomparable.

Pay homage to Pele for prompting the eruptions that shaped the beveled edges and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands by entering her embrace within the comforts of her warm bosom at the Volcano House Hotel.
