I got to spend a couple of nights at Absolute Paradise, and would say the name was fitting. Didier could not have been a more gracious host. He was very helpful in providing recommendations and directions and helping make sure my time was well spent. The B&B is clean, well kept, and comfortable, and I think the rooms are nicer... More

When I visit a B&B, the host makes the whole difference. In this case, Didier is the person you want to meet, particularly when this is your first time on the Big island. He is so knowledgable about his own neighborhood but also the rest of the island. He makes you discover and refer you to the very best people... More

Absolute Paradise B&B is nice for those who want to get away from it all. It's clean and casual (clothing-optional pool and hot tub). The nearby black-sand beach is also clothing-optional. Keep in mind that the B&B is in a secluded area, so you will have to drive for everything except the aforementioned beach. Breakfast was self-serve and simple -... More

Absolute Paradise was the perfect place to stay for the relaxed, sun-filled holiday that I wanted. Didier is very helpful with local knowledge and information and provides very large comfortable rooms to stay in. The B&B was lovely and clean, private and quiet. It was perfect for lazing nude by the pool or in the hot tub of an evening.... More

Everything about this B&B is excellent. Practical location. Restaurant 4 miles away at the END of the road. LAVA field. Great Black Sand Beach no more then 15 minutes away by car. Parks no more the 30 miniutes away with hot water natural pools. 12 miles from a funny little country Hawian village where you can find excellent restaurants. Didier... More

There wasn't much activity when I went but it's a nice place with a wonderful host. Real close to the nude beach and many attractions. I'd definitely go again. I'd say to try the local food and bar down the street. It is a great place in southern part of island which is more green and lush and away from... More

We stayed back in Feb 2013 and loved the place. Yes it is in a remote area, perfect for relaxing, yes you have to drive about 20 minutes to the local restaurants but that was fine. The beach it is near is amazing with stunning crushed volcanic black sand. The room was simple but very reasonable for the price you... More

My partner and I just returned from another Great stay at Absolute Paradise. The owner, Didier treats everyone as if they are friends or family. We split our stay between the Pool Room and the Trade Winds Room. Both rooms are very large with plenty of closet space and chest of drawers to put everything away. The two rooms share... More
