“A one of a kind treasure.”

I have stayed at both of Jade's places in Hawaii and they are both awesome. The Lava Temple is ------ indescribably awesome.

There is a wild and raw beauty and an inherent elegance to this place, and it is sitting on the newest land in the world, still raw and black and.... intense.

At night, you can see the active volcano glowing red against the sky, and the stars are about as close and bright as anywhere in the world.

Jade is a perfect hostess, professional and warm. I'd recommend this place to anyone, especially if you are open to a more 'intense' experience.

“At home on the lava”

From the second that I inquired about staying with Jade, she was unbelievably helpful and pleasant to deal with. When I arrived at the property, I genuinely felt like I was coming home due to the warmth that radiates from Jade and her lovely home. I can honestly say that I slept better at her property than I have slept anywhere in longer than I can remember. The space and the location are incredible and make for a wonderful stay on their own and combine that with Jade and her wonderful nature make the Lava sanctuary an absolute can't miss while visiting the big island! I will be back again and I can't wait to enjoy the peace and serenity that the lava and the spaces that Jade has made bring and to have those wonderful nights' sleep that come with it as well!

Thank you so much for everything Jade!

“Best Place to Stay on the Big Island”
Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

I travel to the Big Island often and I must say the last visit was a little extraordinary. I attribute this to Jade Chen, who owns and manages the Lava Sanctuary in Kalapana. First of all, just staying in a place that sits on top of a lava field, surrounded by lush mountains, rich history, and stunning views of the starry sky, is surreal in itself. The lava temple was was one of the best accommodations we've stayed at on the island. The open, bali-styled structure, the cool breezes, large dining table, and eco-shower were just a few of the features we enjoyed. It's typically hard to get high speed internet and phone reception when you're this off-grid, but it was perfect here (I had to work while on vacation). But the best part of the experience was Jade herself. She was so welcoming and accommodating. She sent us a whole list of places to visit during our stay, checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed, and even invited us to a local event she was leading at the Kalani center!

Do yourself a favor and book your accommodations at Jade's Lava Sanctuary. The rates are so reasonable for everything you get (two-story loft, full-sized kitchen, tasteful eco-living, and an active volcano a short drive away).
