The Pacific Ocean is is the biggest feature of Earth, covering one-third of the globe, with more area than all of the Earth's land masses combined.
And smack dab in the middle of it is the Pacific hotspot -- a thin part of the earth's crust where volcanoes have been erupting since time immemorial, creating islands that are the most …
We stayed in kona and had a rental car. We circled the island , it took all day. We saw the waipio valley, we hiked to akaka falls then drove down to Hawaii volcanoes national park. We went inside a lava tube, drove and saw the lava fields and old craters. Then ...
... We saw the lava tubes and areas where this string of craters has spread lava that flowed down the mountain and across the road. There were petroglyps in one area. It is amazing to think this entire island chain was created by this process.
We drove on to Kailua -Kona through the coffee plantations and moved into the last of our time share units, The Kona Coast Resort. From here we were able to explore the dry northwest and the wet and ...
... route we stopped and I read out the information about what we were actually looking at. The short story of it is as follows... this is the home of Pele, the goddess of volcanoes. In 1959, the volcano erupted with such force it created such a huge amount of lava that it all flowed over the hilltops and filled this valley creating a huge lake of lava. So much lava poured in that it actually filled the valley by 440ft. This went on for 36 days so there are several different ...
... From so high up, we could see lava stretching out seemingly endlessly in front of us. It was amazing that so much lava could be produced in such a relatively short amount of time - about 60 years or so. Out in the distance along the coastline we could see a big plume of steam rising up into the air. My dad asked if this was the ocean entry, and she said it was. A few minutes late we were right by it. Since we weren't over any houses here, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kilauea Lodge Volcano
We stayed here for three nights July 2004, as our hotel for the volcano part of the trip. I definitely recommend staying in different hotels, one on the east side, and one on the west side if you have enough time. The drive from Volcanoe park to Kona is close to 2 hours.
Great place, would stay here again!!!
My husband and I stayed in the Honeymoon Deluxe room for 2 nights during our honeymoon and it was much better than we expected. We loved the wood-burning fireplace in the room and the four post bed with a beautiful green and gold pineapple quilt. Very cozy after a day of exploring the volcano. The room also had it's own balcony and a 2 person shower which was nice. There's also a nice, clean hot tub right outside. The breakfast was good, especially the sweetbread french toast. We also had dinner at the lodge, which was pretty good, but we enjoyed the Thai place down the street a little more. It was cheaper and they had huge portions.
Not to be missed
Not to be missed! Our family of four stayed quite comfortably in the Pi'i Mauna cottage, a short drive from the lodge. (Perfect for privacy for familes of for two couples. The two bedrooms were separated by an outdoor area with a hot tub. Also had a full kitchen, but who wants to take time to cook?) We had an excellent dinner (a 2+ hour, 5 course event), great breakfasts and outstaning service. We were glad we stayed here two nights to fully enjoy the area and accomodations. We will not stay anywhere else -- including Hilo -- on this side of the island.
One of the highlights of our trip. Nicely decorated, cozy, but spacious room. Great location so close to the park. Don't miss out on the three types of sweet bread French toast with coconut syrup for breakfast! Wish we had time to stay longer!
As Cozy As It Gets!!!
The rooms in this Lodge are as pretty as any I've enjoyed in the big resorts. They are very cozy, beds are comfy, LOVE the towel-warmers, and when it rains on your tin roof at night, you think you are in heaven (in the new bldg. with the six bedrooms)! The restaurant is excellent. They will pack your breakfast if you're in a hurry in the morning, and the owners are just lovely...... met Lorna when we were there. This Lodge is one of the reasons I can't wait to go back to the Big Island again!!! The only thing I would change is to somehow soundproof the walls a bit in this new building.......... They are pretty thin!
From the moment my wife and I checked in (for two nights on April 8th) we knew we had made the right decision to stay at the Kilauea Lodge because we were greeted with a warm welcome and a smile. My wife and I have travelled a fair amount throughout the Hawaiian Islands and we found the level of service, quality of food and overall value of the Kilauea Lodge much better than some of the 5 star hotels in Hawaii. The chef at the Kilauea Lodge's restaurant is phenomenal. The food and the service at the restaurant is first rate, we rank it right up there with places like The Orchid and Hapuna Bay. Our thanks to Koa, Tracey, & Haylee for making us feel quite at home. We strongly recommend reserving a room with a fire place. Our room was very nicely appointed and I'll take a fireplace over a TV any day! Our thanks to the owners Albert and Lorna Jeyte who we regretfully didn't get to meet. In our opinion the Kilauea Lodge is a destination unto itself. We look forward to staying with you again soon.
I must admit, I am not accustomed to Bed and Breakfast style of accomodations (and this is a B&B). We were there to spend more time in Volcanoes Nat'l Park and less time commuting from Kohala Coast, where we spent the balance of our trip. I was okay with the fact that there were no TV's or phones in our room. I was okay that the TV in the common room only played VHS tapes, and had no channels. The real show is a short drive and hike away.
We stayed at the lodge in June of 2003 and enjoyed it very much, mostly
I had a great (but short) 1 night stay at Kilauea Lodge. the meals were wonderful (dinner and breakfast), the room was very cosy and the setting was very convenient to Volcanos National Park. I found the price to be pretty reasonable given that it included breakfast.
the hot tub was nice too!
Great place to unwind
Just returned from an amazing two week vacation to Hawaii. On the big island, we stayed at Kilauea Lodge near the Volcano National Park. It was a wonderful, secluded location, and a great place to unwind after a long day of hiking in the park. The service was excellent, and the food in the restaurant was outstanding! Highly recommended!
