To make the essentials of bed and breakfast accessible, we offer budget travelers a bunk in a welcoming room shared by up to three guests sometimes from four corners of the earth. This is a big step above your typical hostel. Comfy twin mattresses sit on sturdy wood frames in this native space that opens via French doors onto the communal walkway a short distance from the lanai where a tropical breakfast awaits. The bathroom with shower and outdoor kitchen area that are shared with the other rooms are just around the corner. WiFi is accessible from the comfort of your room with closet space and ample room to put your backpack.
We would prefer that the room is booked on same sex basis, however group bookings and guest approval will be considered.
The Rainbow Retreat Center is located three from the village of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii. A buffer of dense jungle surrounds this 10-acre oasis of comfort and privacy. Your sense of seclusion is complemented by the realization that you have everything you need right here.
With temperatures hovering at 80 degrees all year round, you'll love the ever-available outdoor swimming pool. If you're assuming a pool isn't a critical feature when you're surrounded by the ocean – think again. Do you really want to drive to the coast every time you want to cool off and swim? We don't. Dips in the pool are available 24 hours a day – and a clothing optional swim under the stars is quite a treat.
Rooms are decked out with Hawaiian décor and feature vintage and locally made furnishings. Each suite has amenities for making it easy to cook, sleep comfortably and play heartily.
Breakfast is sourced locally and includes fresh, organically grown fruit. A typical breakfast features fresh local fruit in a papaya boat along with granola and yogurt. Depending on availability, breakfast may also include mangos, guavas, avacados, breadfruit, tangerines, oranges, pineapple, lilikoi, rambatan, lychee and a variety of bananas.
