We are at a cool 4,000ft  (1,220 M) elevation on top of the active Kīlauea Volcano.

Conservancy Statement:

As an “eco-friendly” accommodation, ecology and sustainability is very important to us at Volcano Inn, not to mention we are dependent on the rain-forest for our water. We supplement with solar energy as much as possible and we ask that you please be mindful during your stay in the jungle. You will notice signs asking you to conserve water (this also includes linens/beds if you are in a room with more beds than occupants, as this creates unnecessary laundry) in addition we feature power saving mechanisms in several of our rooms, thank you in advance for contributing to our efforts to conserve resources.
