Kilauea Lodge Overview

Located in Hawaii’s Volcano Village, the Kilauea Lodge promises a vacation experience like no other. The historic Kilauea Lodge is surrounded by acres of beautiful tropical gardens and native forest, making it the perfect backdrop for your Hawaii getaway.

Originally built as a YMCA camp back in the 1930s, the lodge’s proximity to the national park makes it a popular choice for out-of-town visitors. Most visitors to Volcano Village, Hawaii book a day of adventure and exploration at Volcanoes National Park. Hiking and stargazing are two of the most popular activities that tourists take part in the national park. Other attractions for first-time guests include checking out nearby Volcano Winery Tasting Room and the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens.

The lodge offers so many different experiences – from renting a room in the lodge to booking an exclusive vacation rental cottage or unwinding in a hot tub – it all depends on what tickles your fancy. The cottage includes a quaint little gas fireplace, a living room, a full kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom with a shower. The clean and cozy rooms feature an island-inspired decor theme that add enough nuance without going overboard. The lodge’s garden gazebo has been the backdrop of many weddings, especially of those adventure-prone travelers looking for love in the rain forest.

The Kilauea Lodge’s kitchen serves up a world-famous full breakfast, complimentary with every room rental, complete with an exotic fruit platter. Repeat visitors can not help praising the friendly staff, whose attention-to-detail and warm attitude embodies the true ‘Aloha’ attitude.
