Outstanding - treated as part of the family
Posted Dec 31, 2016
I spend five nights in the “Wild Ginger” room in the “Lava Pond Lodge” in December 2016. The whole stay could be described using simply one word. Fantastic!! I felt like home and being integrated in the family. The housekeepers Regina and Darius are gorgeous. You could expect a great breakfast with fresh fruits and special items every day and on top of that good chats disclosing many secrets of the island regardless if you need information about tours, sightseeing, restaurants or want to now facts about big island. The room is well equipped (fire place, large bathroom, large closet, TV and entertainment system as well as access to a fridge with complementary beverages). The atmosphere is very welcoming and even expected difficulties with late arriving (I arrived late, after 9:00 pm) were no problem at all. I could completely recommend the lodge. Besides you will be located close to the “Volcano National park” offering great hikes, museums and astonishing sceneries. Furthermore, Hilo and great nature sceneries (lush rain forest with spectacular waterfalls, old plantation land, and different natural beaches (black or even one green sand beach) are in the vicinity.
