For a unique Big Island B&B lodging experience secluded deep in the Volcano rainforest, stay in our small romantic hexagon cedar sanctuary, embraced by lush tree ferns and ethereal mist. Step into an intimate Japanese country style interior with low tables, indigo bedding and floor cushions. Shoji doors open to a small toilet room with cozy robes and bath towels. Relax on sitting chairs by the gas fireplace or rest on the queen bed gazing through floor to ceiling glass windows and savor enchanting forest views. In the filtered morning light, enjoy the small kitchen nook and delight in a private breakfast provided the night before.
Become one with nature in the private bathhouse with outdoor shower and handcrafted o’furo (traditional Japanese hot tub). Soak in the Volcano experience of the primal and sacred. Perfect for couples or singles who enjoy small, intimate places and the uniqueness of showering outside in the native forest. Available for solitary meditation retreats in seclusion.
