A private rooms with a queen size bed in the main lodge. It is a corner room, with a desk, good size closet and a sliding glass door that opens to a covered walkway. The walkway leads down, past the dinning deck (with 6 hammocks) and to the 3 common, shared bathrooms. You can also buy daily yoga classes or meals in the main lodge. The rooms come with lock boxes, so just bring a pad lock.
This space truly is a 'yoga oasis' on the Big Island of Hawaii!! A magical space hiding in rainforest, with communal kitchen, hammocks, library, option for cooked breakfasts, and the most amazing optional 2-hour morning yoga class provided by a powerful teacher with so much experience and a desire to test you and challenge you. Relaxing. Quiet. Tranquil. Welcoming. Forraging chookies exploring around! Also the option for traditional Thai massage if you want that experience! The masseur knows his stuff I assure you! You do need a car from Hilo just to get there, but also if you want to use the space as a base for other travels and adventures! And challenging to find at night (no signage allowed)! They were able to connect me with a great fisherman/yoga teacher/boat tour operator who took me out via a boat to within metres of Goddess Pele spewing new lava into the ocean. Magical. Amazing. Close to warm ponds. Nearby small town for other food options. Local markets. 'Alternative'-friendly if that's your need. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I'll definitely be going back! And next time for a longer stay. Thank you Star, Hayward, (and Matthew and Eugene!)
I remember some of the first words upon arrival were, "what a strange and magical place!" The frogs were just starting to chirp and it sounded other-worldly and so cool! This place is a unique. It runs on solar power and you can tell there is a lot of love and energy put into the creation of this place. The rooms in the lodge are clean, simple, well situated and private. The common areas (extra-large screened in dining room with hammocks and indoor living room with sofas and tons of books available to read) are huge, comfortable, and welcoming. The shared bathrooms are clean and charming. The daily yoga class I took at 8 a.m. from Star was a fantastic way to start the day and appeared open to all levels of practice. The yoga studio is covered and protected but screened/open to nature. The sounds of birds, frogs, rain and morning sun permeate the studio and the yoga floor itself is specially constructed to be springy. Eventually I moved down to the Cedar Tag cabin for variety. Because I didn't book the cabin online, I am unable to review it on this site. But all of the cabins are unique and are also worth a peek!
This is a great spot to relax. The room and bathroom were very clean. They have a laptop you can use which was great for me as I was travelling without mine. There are a few other folks living here but I did not see too many of them. I did not get a chance to take a yoga class. This is a special and unique place. Thank you, Star.
