TURTLE HUT I
Now you've found your perfect vacation spot... 'Hale Honu' or 'Turtle Hut,' aptly named for the endangered hawksbill turtles nestling along our black sand beach, offers a tranquil haven to human travelers, too! Perched on a bluff with Mauna Loa Volcano as its background and the soft blue waters of the Pacific as its foreground, Sea Mountain welcomes visitors seeking 'Old Hawaii' at its best.
Volcano eruption update: Contrary to news media headlines, 99% of our magnificent Big Isle is SAFE, and not impacted by the recent eruptions of Kīlauea Volcano in the small neighborhood in Puna District. The eruption has paused entirely as of August 9. The Turtle Hut is located 45 miles from the eruption and is perfectly safe and secure for your visit!
Please browse through our former Guest Reviews Tab and you'll see we have earned more FIVE STAR ratings than any other listing in our resort, or our district! There are many reasons why:
The Turtle Hut has everything you're looking for in your 'dream' Hawaiian vacation: outstanding LOCATION, fantastic AMENITIES and surprising affordability for a top-rated resort in paradise! Recent resort upgrades include high speed internet and wi-Fi, premium and unlimited on-demand TV programming and local and long distance telephone.
Serene...peaceful...secluded...oasis...historic...natural.... are apt descriptors for this magnificent region. The Turtle Hut's location in the more secluded and peaceful section of the resort is an added asset, and its VIEW of the OCEAN is what brings our guests back, year after year. We are thrilled to have earned more than triple the number of FIVE STAR ratings from our guests than any other property in our resort, and we work hard to achieve that record.
We are ideally located between Kailua-Kona and Hilo, making day trips to either side of the island's attractions easy! We're also only a short half hour drive to Volcanoes National Park and its awesome eruption shows; a short hike takes you to Papakolea, our incredible GREEN Sands Beach, or tour nearby Kula Kai Caverns in Ocean View, South Point, Wood Valley? Hike the ancient Ala Kahakai Trail fronting our resort and beyond to discover petroglyphys and heiaus dating back to pre-contact times...The possibilities nearby are endless.
