Kalani Honua Culture Center & Retreat.

Southeast of Hilo in a remote area of the Puna District, Kalani Honua is a 20-acre cultural arts center with eight rooms to let overnight or up to a week. The rooms are in eight-sided, cedar-clad lodges (pictured on page 54); you sleep on single cots, two to four to a room, and share kitchen and bath facilities.

You may be sharing the whole retreat (though not your lodge) with groups of children who come to summer camp. Lodging costs $25 per room per night for up to three people, $30 for four. A Hawaiian crafts gift store is open 10 to 5 Mondays through Saturdays; a swimming pool, sauna, and hot tub are available. Take your own food; there are no restaurants or markets nearby.

To reach Kalani Honua from Kilauea Crater, head south on Chain of Craters Road to State 130. Go east through Kalapana; when State 130 bends north, stay on the narrow State 137 for 5 miles; look for signs on your left. From Hilo, go southeast on State 11 and State 130 through Pahoa to the State 137 turn-off east of Kalapana, then head east 5 miles to the retreat.
