Star was a wonderful Host. We arrived late the first night and she had left us a wonderful map of how to get to our cabin and other helpful information. The cabin was fantastic with screens for windows. In the mornings around 7 the sun would cast light on the bed and you can lay there listening to the birds chirping. To get to the cabin you walk 300ft through a small orchard away from the main building. I definitely advise staying here.
We enjoyed our stay. It was a very nice open air jungalow. Loved the claw foot tub! Was very peaceful and quiet, didn't see another person the whole time, which we really liked! although if you wanted to see people that was an option as the main house was just a short walk away. Was a great little get away on a beautiful property.
We stayed with Star at the Yoga Oasis and enjoyed our time very much! Be aware that this is a rainforest and the frogs and insects are loud at night... After a while you get used to it and it becomes background noise. The cabin was well furnished and the Indonesian touches throughout were really something! We had a great time and would come again.
Lastly, there are mosquitoes, but if you take precautions and close the doors after you when entering the cabin you shouldn't have any problem with them.
I stayed at both the Cedar Cabin and Coconut Cabin. This is my second trip here. Very peaceful and relaxing. The Coconut cabin is very spacious with a larger outdoor kitchen and really cool bathroom off the back of the cabin. Ideal for people who want a little more space but similar amenities and vibe as Cedar cabin. At the time of my visit Coconut cabin had one of the newer electrical systems which allowed me to recharge my phone and computer in the cabin. This was cool. The huge bath house bathtub and outdoor shower were great. Very private. Slept so well and had an awesome yoga class in the morning. Great place!
We had an awesome stay at Yoga Oasis in the Cedar Taj Cabin. It is a private jungle retreat but still has plenty of comfort including solar powered electricity, a fancy bath with hot water, and a little single burner kitchen. I think the biggest problem is leaving. As the other reviewers have pointed out, this is not a hotel resort where you will sit by the pool with your cocktail. This is a place to experience nature, mingle with others in the area, enjoy the nearby beaches, and take some amazing yoga classes (if you choose). We were only able to go to one yoga class, but it was truly the best class I have ever had. Before going, we were worried that it would be far away from things and we wouldn't get to see much of the big island. This isn't a problem. It is a few miles to the most beautiful black sand beaches, snorkeling, and cute town. Hilo is only 40min away and the lava flow and volcano national park are 1hr or less. On the Yoga Oasis website there is a pdf of the nearby things to check out. It is the rainforest, so there are mosquitos and loud frogs (FYI these were also in the nice hotel in Hilo our last night). So, bring your ear plugs and bug spray. Also, while a 4 wheel drive car was useful for Wai'po valley, it wasn't necessary to stay here. We parked the car 100ft from the cabin still on the gravel road and just walked the short distance to the cabin.
Staying at this place is an amazing experience. Although it's hard to tell from the photos, the entire three room cabin is open to the air, the windows are covered by mesh screens. We loved feeling so connected with the rain forest, listening to the thundering sound of the nighttime rains on the roof, the chorus of frogs at night, and watching the birds while taking a bath. The air is warm but there is lots of circulation so we never felt too hot. The ornate wooden doors and brightly colored silk scarves kind of make you feel like some kind of pasha.
The kitchen is adequate, with one burner, dishes, and some basic spices. We cooked simple meals every day. There was also the option to go to the main house and use additional burners and a large refrigerator. Since the cabin only has a cooler, it was tougher to keep things cold but we managed.
Although we did not come for the yoga I enjoyed it so much! Being from San Francisco, the home of yoga snobbery, I've never felt that drawn to yoga retreats, but the teachers were down to earth, warm, and made you feel welcome even if you can't touch your toes! A wonderful two hour class happens every morning for just $10. We also had Lomi lomi healing work/massage sessions with Carl that were quite life changing.
The vibe at this place is friendly and we met and truly enjoyed the company of the other travelers there. One word of advice after seeing their rooms (the ones connected to the house), is go for the cabins. At about $20 more per night there is no questions they are a much better deal than small rooms which are unremarkable and stuffy. Star was great, she communicated well and always got back to us about our questions.
