Sustainable Community Rainforest Retreat in Puna Hawaii



Hedo Photo History

Avocado Tent

Hedonisia Hawaii is a sustainable community located in the volcanic rainforests of Puna, in East Hawaii.

We offer affordable "green lodgings" for "ecotourists", backpackers and travelers who wish to experience a more down to earth and natural Hawaii than the concrete developed hotel tourism of Waikiki or Kona.

We continually experiment with ecofriendly practices at our little community in Hawaii which makes us deliberately different from "normal" tourist resorts

Having only ten bed-spaces on 3.72 acres of land prevents us from becoming over-crowded. Our maximum population is 8 - 16 people which allows Guests and Volunteers quiet, privacy and space to enjoy our little piece of Hawaii paradise.

At Hedonisia, the Community Facilities are all designed for the tropical environment we live in. Common facilities include a Solar Private Garden Shower, Geothermal electricity, Eco- Laundry, Free Landline Telephone, Wifi and our well photographed Eco-Toilet-with-a-Garden View! It's jungle style but hardly roughing it! On the property we also have a nature-trail you can explore that descends into our own volcanic crater.

If you only wish to stay at Hedonisia Eco-Hostel for a few nights and know your dates of travel you can go directly to the Hedonisia Quick Email Inquiry Form to request a price quote and availability info.

C) Fair-Trade Volunteer Program in Hawaii!

Volunteer in Hawaii to enjoy a discounted eco-vacation! We offer a fair-trade volunteer for lodgings program. This allows working vacations for those who wish to enjoy a longer stay in Hawaii at a lower cost at a sustainable community in the Hawai'an rainforest!

D) Sustainable Community Management Internship

We offer a residential hands-on apprentice manager program at the Hedonisia Hawaii Community. This apprenticeship is perfect for artists, writers, computer workers, and other creative activities who would like work that requires them to stay at 'home!' or for those who are thinking of leaving the rat race and moving to a Hawai'ian island Paradise!

Our location is very convenient for both eco-tourists and volunteers alike. We are close to many major attractions of Puna and East Hawaii such as Ahalanui Warm Ponds, Kehena Black Sand beach, Volcano's National Park, and many others. The quaint and colorful "hippie" village of Pahoa is only 4 miles away and so is the ocean!

Wishing you much aloha on your journey to Hawaii!
