We loved staying in the rainforest room. My husband and I have travelled around the world and stayed in over 50+ hotel rooms. Chalet Kilauea's hotel room was the most unique room we ever stayed in. There are windows around the room that look into the property's lush rainforest. The room is decorated with stone all around the room and... More

I don't know where to start with this review....so here goes. Very dated place set in a beautiful yet bad area. We arrived, got checked in and headed to our bungalow. We pulled up to our unit to be met with 2 people coming from the back of the property. Take this for what its worth......she had no teeth and... More

Thank you for using TripAdvisor to bring this to our attention. We regret that the manager on duty was not contacted at 4am to either reassure safety concerns or move these guests from the bungalow to a comparable room at the main building proper. Although the bungalow is located on the same 2 acre parcel, on purpose it is located... More

This is more like a motel in a great location near the Volcano Naional Park. The tropical grounds enhance the ambiance.The 3 rating is because the rooms need updating and have an uneven floor and stairs which are slightly hazardous. Despite this I would highly recommend this accommodation.

Fantastic rain forest setting with wonderful amenities in the rooms! Each room is very unique with great views of the outside plant life. This place is one of the most peaceful and quiet settings that we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Highly Recommend !!!

Volcano is a place where you don't find the big luxurious hotels. And this is just how the place is. Remote and somehow mysterious. And it's more or less in the middle of the jungle. The Chalet Kilauea is just a nice and cozy place in this somehow unusual world. 6 units with enough space for just a peaceful night.... More

Service was excellent. Room is fantastic. Location great. What else might one need?! We booked a cheaper room first, but then got upgraded to bamboo room. I think we spent about hour hour admiring the room. Windows were so clear that it looked like we actually were (well our room) in the hawaii tropical woods.

We were looking forward to some peace and quiet in a B&B setting and the Lodge delivered. Our room was clean, a bit quirky, but very pleasant. A bit romantic I might add. The staff was very helpful in a number of ways and helped to get us acclimated quickly

Wow, what a place. We stayed in a room at the hotel and it was wonderful. I loved the garden with the koi pond, the bathroom and the bed was so comfy. Wi-Fi worked fine. Staff was nice and helpful. Check-in/check-out seamless. The hotels location was excellent for hiking and sightseeing in the Volcano National Park.
