Volcano House is Open

An old-fashioned hotel with a killer view! The Halema’uma’u crater is no longer glowing red, but the recent landscape changes are fascinating post-eruption. The hotel is very safe, no worries about the lava. In fact, there's no hot lava anywhere on the island right now. But you can drive to the new Black Sand Beach at Issac Hale, and people are surfing there!

Simply perfect, rustic & beautiful

Everything you need is right there! Perfect access to the volcano, food, and entertainment. The Hawaiian spirit and hospitality is on front and center. It's obvious the local community and park caretakers love and appreciate the land.

Great lunch & outstanding view!

My husband and I stopped at Volcano House on a whim. It was a clear day and you could see right into the Kilauea caldera while dining. I had a ginger shrimp with jasmine rice in a sweet and sour broth. My husband had the Hawaiian sampler which was beautifully presented in a bento box with poke, poi, fish, and haupia. The service was very attentive as well.
