5/5 Excellent

We were in Honolulu and made a last minute decision to visit Hilo and the park. we were lucky enough to find a room at Kulaniapia falls. my expectations were more than exceeded. if you are after a peaceful, away from everything, meditation-friendly, genuine down-to-earth staff, and full relaxation this is the place. it's certainly not cheap but once you see the amount of work the owner put into this place and the quality of the lodges you will understand why. we had the chance to experience the chef's dinner. it was a lovely starry night, with lots of frogs singing, the waterfall noise in the background and alice the cat walking around. unforgettable to say the least. the volcano park is just 30 minutes away. I will be back for sure.

Such a beautiful place to stay in Hilo! It was so nice sleeping to the sound of the falls and the staff were fantastic. The chef onsite was also fantastic for an intimate and delicious dinner made from local produce. Would definitely come back here if we visit the big island again.

As soon as we arrived and started to check in we were presented with demands for payments/charges that were not disclosed at the time of booking. A $10/pp/night ‘amenity’ fee and a $500 holding charge for any services/dinners or damages! Despite us politely declining the amenity charges and ‘The Inn’ agreeing to waive them and reduce the holding charge after making us sign another form we later discovered they’d charged the amenity fee to our credit card anyway! The room smelt damp, was very humid with no air con and had limited wardrobe storage. We also had to take our footware off to enter the breakfast area and walk on slippery floors with hot drinks!

We had an amazing time! The property is located about 12 min from Hilo and is absolutely beautiful. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. My 11 and 13 year olds played down in the waterfall for hours on the kayak and paddle board. They didn’t want to leave. We will be back!
