This was our third stay at Kilauea Lodge. We find it is quite nice and also has a great dining opportunity.
The lodge is easy enough to find, but it does require a key turn. At $215/nt. our room #10 is not cheap, but this is Volcano. Our room is upstairs (no elevator), and proves difficult for me this trip, given my hip issue. This building's units share a common "living room", but each unit is individually secured by a key lock. The unit is not new, but is well maintained. The bed is excellent. It has Robes, extra blankets, heat, and plenty of towels. No A/c, but several windows can be opened. There is plenty of storage in the unit for longer stays, lots of open space and good lighting. The water pressure is good, with near instant hot water. Lots of special touches await you. The views are of the gardens. The grounds include a hot tub, gazebo and garden walks. The rate includes a full table service breakfast from the menu, including coffee and juice!
Part of the reason to stay here is the "special nature" of the place. Sort of hard to write. My wife's birthday was yesterday, but we waited to celebrate it tonight in the Lodge's Restaurant. When we went to dinner, our table, with balloons awaited us. The menu acknowledged Leslie's birthday, for all to see. Dinner was followed by a birthday desert and a serenading by the staff. Starters run $5-10. Dessert is $6.75. About 10 Entrees are on the menu ranging from $22-38. A couple specials were also offered, with a serious increase in price. Each entrée came with a suggested wine paring. A split plate charge is $10. I had the prime rib, which was about 9 ounces, more that I usually eat. Leslie had the Seafood platter on a bed of spaghetti. It had shrimp, scallops, peppers, mushrooms to name a couple of the inclusions. Wines ran from $30-75. Our dinner ran about $120, a price we almost never pay, but we glad to in this case. This is not hash house, they do serious cooking here!
This stay is a bit of a splurge, but it is a great place to stay and puts you right near all the attractions in the Park after breakfast. Unfortunately, the Government shutdown limited this most wonder experience, and we headed to Hilo after breakfast.
