FROM   $255 /night $1275 TOTAL PER PERSON


5 nights in Pahoa, Hawaii
Thu Feb 04 - Tue Feb 09, 2016


Experience a peaceful, sacred place for your meditation, yoga, and healing in Hawaii at this amazing vegetarian spiritual retreat center open to all paths & people. Kirpal Meditation and Ecological Center is a half mile from the ocean on the eastern tip of the Big Island of Hawaii, approximately seven miles from the small village of Pahoa.

The 10-acre ocean-view property is blessed with average daytime temperatures of 85° F year-round, and 65° F at night, with cool, fragrant trade winds, surrounding tropical flora, including old growth mangoes, nearby swimming, surfing and snorkeling in the ocean and natural volcanically heated thermal oceanside pools.

This property was once a papaya farm and is now newly planted with sour sop, jack fruit, pomegranate, rollinia, variety of bananas, figs, passion fruit, mamey sapote, avocados, papayas, sugar cane, coconut, lilikoi and guava. There are also loquat, cacao, macadamia nut, cashew nut, noni, starfruit, breadfruit, tangelos, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, pomelos and more.

The octagonal Balinese meditation pavilion is set among shade-trees with an expansive view of the ocean. The island wildlife is all around us – a variety of birds by day and at night there’s the pleasant chirping of Coqui frogs – and there are no snakes. Natural wonders include Volcanoes National Park, lava and crater viewing, volcanically heated warm ponds and steam vents (as outdoor saunas) and other wonders of the lush tropics.

This was an amazing trip. Everything was great. The volunteer's were very helpful, the food was amazing, the yoga was perfect for stressed muscles. They gave amazing facts about the land and area where we stayed. They provided recommendations on where to go for amazing sites and great memories. Such a great trip. You typically need a vacation from your vacation. Definitely not this one. So perfect!
