This tree house next to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii was designed and built by Roderick Romero, a famed tree house builder known as the "Architect of the Skies."

Access to the first level is over lava boulders set into the side of the lava tube and up a ship's ladder.

Guests may eat at the indoor window table or out under the covered lanai at a teak table.

Location + Surroundings

This tree house hotel in Hawaii is located in the rain forest that extends into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which surrounds the Thurston Lava Tube, making it an ideal spot for glamping in Hawaii. The tree house itself is built in trees that rise out of an ancient lava tube. Guests are above mid-canopy with birds flying both above and below. Read More

This tree house hotel in Hawaii is less than five miles from the gate to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Inside the park, Kilauea volcano has been erupting for decades. Currently, there is a lava lake that has formed in an interior crater at Halema'uma'u, about a ten-minute drive from the tree house hotel. From the Kilauea overlook, guests can see this eruption, and sometimes hear and feel it. For more information on the eruption, please visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park website. There, guests will find information about upcoming programs as well as eruption updates.

Both inside the park and in the village there are galleries and activities. The village has several restaurants, so cooking in the tree house is not a necessity. The famous Punalu'u Black Sand beach is about a half hour's drive in one direction, and Hilo, with its astronomy center, beaches, restaurants, shops and cultural activities, is a half-hour drive in the other direction.

Additional Information

Should guests be coming from Kona, the drive either across the island or down the western coast is wonderful. It takes two hours and 30 minutes approximately (either way without stops), but glampers will wish to allow for stops, as there is much to see, do, and experience. The closer airport is Hilo.

This listing is for two adults. Guests can contact the host if they would like to book for more than two adults. Read more
