– Puka Hale
This page is preserved as an archive of pre-volcano Hedonisia Hawaii.
We are planning and preparing to return to our land and hope you can help us. We seek support to to help rebuild Hedonisia Hawaii after its destruction in the Kilauea volcanic eruption. Anyone can make a contribution, no matter how small. If you can’t donate simply post a little about our story on Social Media.
The Puka Hale (crater hut) is located at the farthest corner of the property and is ideal for those who like privacy.
As an eco-hostel we are always trying to reuse and recycle with our projects and this is one of our own custom creations!
To make it an eco-friendly lodging creation, we used local bamboo and Strawberry Guava wood to create a rustic eco-shack. Except for the screws and the roof everything is reused or locally sourced.
When we describe Puka Hale as unique, we mean unique! This jungle shack is one of the world’s only eco-hostel lodgings located right at the bottom of our volcanic crater! Yes, it’s true! We have a dormant volcanic crater right on the property! However, it has not been active for at least 250 years!
Puka Hale is the most private spot on the property. Ideal for couples!
Warning! Not for the faint hearted!This is the most remote lodging on the property so it is not for those who are physically challenged in any way as it requires a 100 foot descent on a winding path into the crater. The hut itself is located at the far side of the crater so we only recommend reserving it if you are a fit adult.
You will either love it for its solitude and uniqueness or hate it because it’s so far away from the eco-toilet and the rest of the community! The choice is yours!
The Puka Hale is also available under the: – Fair-Trade Volunteer Program – Sustainable Community Manager Internship While we cannot guarantee you will stay in this lodging space if you are in the above programs, we do try to honor volunteer and Intern requests based on availability, work ethic and how well participants ‘fit’ into the Hedonisia community.
