The Full Story

Lava Pond Lodge is a Contemporary Craftsman Cottage designed by renowned Canadian architect John Robinson and built by Paul Baillie & Sons of Kea'au Hawaii. It was specially adapted for tropical rainforest living. Guests will delight in the soaring 20' Great Room ceiling, hardwood floors, lava rock fireplace, and Craftsman accents.

OUR AMMENITIES:

BREAKFAST


Be sure to bring an appetite! The complimentary all-you-can-eat breakfast is a gourmet delight of local tropical goodies featuring local ingredients you'd never find in a hotel. And if you appreciate a cup of good coffee or tea like I do, you'll get to sample some unique flavors of Hawaii with 100% Hawaiian Coffee. Breakfast is served at 8 AM. Coffee or tea is available at 7:30 AM. Grab a cup and pick your spot at the breakfast table.

WHAT TO BRING:

Volcano is situated at 3800' elevation in a unique native rainforest and experiences cool evenings. A light jacket, sweater or sweatshirt is appropriate. You may borrow a flashlight for night time lava viewing. Due to the elevation, you may also want sunscreen and a hat, especially if you plan to do some hiking. There are scenic vistas everywhere and only a couple general stores with short hours and limited supplies.

In keeping with Hawaiian custom, we ask that you remove your shoes in the house. 

GIFT SHOP:

We have a small gift shop onsite. We sell a variety of sunscreens, chap sticks, hand salves, Hawaiian moisture wicking quick dry beach towels, and rain ponchos, among other items.
