Recreate a magical environment is never easy. The location, the small pond and the Asian garden style create a special atmosphere. Unfortunately, if you evaluate everything, and mainly the structure we see that it is dated, but all very nice. The bathroom makes you live a dream, while the balcony makes you immediately aware of the mediocrity of the structure.... More

Stayed overnight in the Garden Room. Surprised at its privacy and spaciousness. It felt like a small apartment. There was a little alcove area that had a mini kitchen and dining area of sorts. Microwave. Mini fridge. Sink. Dinner ware. Cutlery. Coffee maker and mugs. Drinking glasses, including wine glasses and a corkscrew. The bathroom was huge with a large... More

My last few nights on the Big Island were spent in the "Bamboo Room." It was everything I could have imagined - and more! It had state-of-the-art furnishings/appliances & novel "bamboo-themed" touches throughout. The shower for 2 was amazing! The expansive windows looking out over the koi pond & gardens held a magical view and the 24 hr. jacuzzi perched... More

While this is no Four Seasons, it was perfect for our Volcano visit. We stayed in the Bamboo Room. The remodel work is nice and the room is spacious. We got up at 3:30 AM to visit the crater so being close was invaluable. Additionally, the Chalet's grounds are quiet and peaceful.

Our two night stay was at the Hale House, Malia Room, not the main lodge. Hale House is sort of isolated and kind of in the middle of nowhere. We wanted to stay in the area so we could explore Volcano National Park so we only needed a place to sleep. That is exactly what we got. The Malia room... More

My wife and I were greeted with tropical foliage and a gurgling koi pond. Lush path winded through the grounds. We rented the Garden Room and we struck by its charm and luxury for such a remote location. Great garden patio/lanai. We would've stayed two nights but it was already booked. Love this place. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed two nights in April 2015 in the Bamboo room, having found it on Tripadvisor. It was perfect for what we needed. I think we may have had the nicest room although we didn't see them all. The room is new and actually not listed on their website. They were in the process of creating a newer room that... More

I stayed at the Volcano Hale one of 3 properties owned by Chalet Kilauea. It seems that the room you stay in can greatly affect your experience due to noise level. The room I stayed in was Hala room which was upstairs and facing the street. The room itself was small, the doorway was a little cramped, but for one... More

Our room was wonderful and has a very comfortable bed and pillows. Only issue was that the door to the lanai had a window....that would let in early morning sun! So we had to cover it with a towel so we would not be woken too early. Also....we never saw fruit at the reception! Only tea and coffee. The hotel... More
