This is so far our best experience in Hawaii. The snorkeling in the nearby tide pools is the best - even better than Molokini in Maui and it does not cost you a cent! You cannot do the boat trip to watch the lava flow as there's been no flow into the ocean for a year now. We took the... More

The Hale Moana B&B gardens designed and tended by the owner Petra, are like a beautiful mini botanical garden. I enjoyed a wonderful start to the day by strolling the grounds with a cup of coffee. Petra, our host, was very gracious and provided excellent recommendations for activities and meals.

So I'm a little late with this review but I still feel it can help others. I stayed here in September 2013. First it was easy to find from HILO airport. Also right near Pahoa town which is nice for restaurants, food etc. The room I stayed in was a studio, which was very cozy, quaint, clean, beautifully decorated and... More

It was kind of hard to find, but now I know why. This place is excellent. The residence is in the wild, surrounded by Hawaiian forest. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat. Beautiful gardens, lawn, trees, you name it. The sound of nature at night, wow, I have not slept this good in years. Breakfast, well lets just... More

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in October. This B&B is nice, clean, comfortable, quite, and we felt spoiled by the owner. There are lots of things to see and to do quite close. I would definitely recommend it to every nature lover.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Hale Moana and found it to be very relaxing. I loved hearing the tree frogs every night and looking at the gorgeous grounds during the day. The orchids were amazing, I had no idea they come in so many different colors! Petra was awesome, she provided us with lots of useful information... More

This B&B is very laid back, comfortable, surrounded by an amazing garden and landscaping, and in a great location for exploring the Puna area. Petra (pee-tra), the host, is also very welcoming and helpful, taking time each morning to chat with the guests, offer advice on exploring the area, and just overall ensuring all is well not only with the...
