We wanted to book our vacation to this retreat, but they put us through nightmare! We travel a lot around the globe, but we have never seen such rude and non-reliable bunch of people. They promised us one thing and one price, but as we said we booked the tickets they raised the price, cut down on services, and said... More

Hayworth & Remi made us feel very welcome. We texted them upon landing & dinner was ready when we arrived (yummy, fresh vegetarian food for $20). It was a very peaceful place with lovely grounds. Chickens & wild (baby) pigs on site as well. Bring earplugs as the coqui frogs are super noisy! Not recommended to stay overnight if you... More

My family (8 of us) spent 5 nights at Yoga Oasis (because I love yoga!) & we stayed in the Buddha House. We were all blown away by the tranquil feel of the house and the beautiful Eastern furnishings and touches. Everyone's highlights were the outdoor shower & sleeping with amazing sounds of the jungle/nature. Last but not least, our... More

Was there as part of a group. It was like going back to camp. Place is solar powered so it is possible that a drain during the day might mean no internet at night - the solitude from electronics is healthy!! Yoga classes were unlike anything I have ever attended. Had a private yoga massage - another first and am... More

The place is within one of the last "pure" pieces of forest from the region, great place to rest and hear some "nature" sounds at night. Also, they have Yoga classes everyday from 8am to 10am, the teacher - Hayward - is one of the best I had the pleasure to take classes with.

This place may not be for everybody... but the yoga is first class! Star & Eugene are both excellent and patient teachers. And if you want to get away from the glitz of Kona and have a feeling for the what Hawaii is all about, Yoga Oasis is that place! I would also recommend it as a great couples get... More

This place is unkempt, badly managed and really out there. Rooms are small and bathroom is open and towels are smelly and sheets are same. Rooms not cleaned even after second day, only towels changed. No breakfast provided, no meals nothing. Only the yoga is good, two hours in the morning.

We went to the yoga oasis after completing a backpacking trip in Volcanoes National Park so we splurged and stayed in one of the cabins. They were simplistic, original and kept out most of the wildlife but the best part was the yoga and breakfast afterwards. This place it a great stay if you want to feel energized and feed... More

We recently returned from our visit to Pahoa and Yoga Oasis. It was a perfect fit for us. We loved the rainforest setting. The pine cabin was comfortable but thanks to the excellent excursion guide that can be downloaded from thier website we were out exploring each day following the excellent Yoga class and delicious breakfast. and did not return...

Star is an amazing teacher and the Yoga Studio is as good as it gets. Imagine waking up each morning in a Hawaiian Rainforest and starting your day in a sun filled Yoga studio with natural sunshine and the ocean breeze. Very close to the best Mexican and Thai food on the Big Island (in Pahoa) and some really amazing... More
