Our communal kitchen is also available for your use, and less than a mile away is a variety of great restaurants.

Interaction with guests

We are a tropical wellness retreat center and sustainable farm, so there will be various people (staff, interns, outside community members - visiting for classes, workshops, and events) on property. Though, due to the large amount of land that we have, you can be as private or social as you'd like.

Other things to note

Hawaiian Sanctuary provides experiential education in the areas of wellness, Hawaiian culture, sustainable planting classes, yoga, social dynamics/communication, and much more!

We bring local experts to teach us about returning to the land, growing our food and re-connecting to ourselves, each other, and the earth. Please visit our website "Hawaiian Sanctuary" to view our events calendar. There are both paid and complimentary class options available to our guests.

Relax in style with us. This vacation will deliver community style living with a private retreat experience. Nestle in our sanctuary close to town, yet worlds away from life as you know it!

The Hawaiian Sanctuary is a very unique permaculture farm in the jungle. The staff were very friendly and the accommodations well kept. We loved the Permaculture class held on Thursday, Yoga classes and access to the gym. There was hardly anyone staying there when we were there so we had the outdoor living area to ourselves at night and loved it. The frogs and sounds of the jungle were awesome. We were pretty cold at night, however so I'd ask for an extra blanket if you're staying in the Winter.

My second visit to Hawaiian Sanctuary! I love living on a permaculture farm and being able to walk the beautiful and spacious and serene grounds and eat food grown in the garden and pick fruits from the groves. What keeps me coming back is the wonderful selection of classes and offerings--yoga in the morning, drop-in classes on permaculture and even farm-to-bar chocolates and local lecturers on Hawaiin culture and amazing drumming classes and film nights. What an warm and welcoming community of locals and interns--having locals share tips and advice of the surrounding area was super helpful. I love this place!

A huge yoga studio and equally large workout room surrounded by all kinds of plants and banana trees. Walking among the buildings are family of peacocks and couple of friendly cats. If you're coffee drinking, head into nearby Pahoa for your morning coffee and great organic breakfast. In addition to Pahoa, you're short drive to black sand beaches, Volcano NP, and waterfront town of Hilo.

This place was a true sanctuary!! Everything was so chill!! I loved doing yoga in the mornings and having smoothies and yummy lunches! The hot tub sauna was so nice and put me right to bed! The land is so beautiful and is close to the town so even tho you feel far off in the jungle you are not isolated. I had the best ever colonic with Tera Ann! She is so sweet and present! I enjoyed my time and would come back for more!

This place likes a Alice wonderland. Yoga classes eventually open everyday with the fresh air in the morning. Healthy vegetarian food will supply in the morning at 8:30am. The stuffs are very kind and nice to help me when I get in trouble. Love you all. I must be there when I come again.

I felt like I was staying with friends and Family. The retreat was absolutely beautiful. My room was very clean and modern. The hot tub and sauna that looks out into the jungle was so relaxing. My meals that were prepared for me was wonderful and so healthy. There was so many different delicious fruits and vegetables that I have never had in my life. I gained a better understanding of what peri culture is. I also took my first Yoga class. The instructors are great. My vacation would not have been so great and I would have not got to see so many different parts of the island without the wonderful staff at Hawaiian Sanctuary

Welcoming hosts, great activities (yoga, belly dancing, classes), good food, and a beautiful property just outside town, make the Sanctuary a great place to call home while on the Big Island. People from the surrounding area come here for yoga and other events, creating a true sense of community. Facilities are excellent, with an expansive kitchen and dining area, communal lounge areas, and a very nice hot tub!
