Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay: Volcano Men’s Retreat is unique among the offerings on the Hawaiian Islands. Our property is nestled among eight acres of our private Ohia forest. This peaceful and intimate retreat is a Polynesian inspired design, but with all the amenities you have come to expect in a high end resort. Enjoy the tranquility of our property and the privacy afforded by having your own personal bungalow. Mingle with other quests in our common lounge and dining areas or in our 6-man spa, or choose to remain secluded on your own private porch while enjoying the sights and sounds of our tropical island. Our 4 identical octagonal bungalows feature 16-foot high exposed bamboo ceilings and beams, a king-sized pillow-top bed with crisp 1800 thread-count Egyptian linens, flat-screen TV and fireplace, a mini-frig, robes and slippers, a modern private bathroom with walk-in shower, and a wrap-around lanai with private seating and dining areas. Unlike other inns, retreats, and B&Bs in the area, we do not require a minimum stay of any kind. Everything is inclusive with your private bungalow, including complimentary wifi, beach chairs and umbrellas, morning coffee service on your private lanai, and the most amazing fresh and hot breakfast. There are NO HIDDEN FEES, such as resort fees, parking fees, cleaning fees, towel fees, internet/wifi fees, or destination fees. If you need to check-in early or check-out late, no problem and NO EXTRA FEES. Volcano Men’s Retreat was built by your hosts, Robert and Scott. Planning and construction took over 2 years with the retreat being completed in October 2016. The mission of the retreat was to build a place that we could never find in our travels to the Islands over many years. We wanted to create a beautiful clothing-optional bed & breakfast for men. We wanted the structures to be beautiful and high quality and the property to be peaceful and secluded. So after two years working with the best materials and craftsmen on the island, Volcano Men’s Retreat was born. Robert and Scott pooled their many years of experience in management and engineering to provide for our guests what we ourselves could never find. Our dream and hope is: Build it and they will come. Volcano Men’s Retreat is located in the “Goldilocks Zone” or the perfect temperature. The retreat is located at an elevation of 1,500 ft above sea level, up the side of Kilauea Volcano. Year-long day or night our temperatures stay between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. You will never be too hot or too cold. The retreat is located in an Ohia rain-forest, which means you will be surrounded by the most beautiful trees, foliage, and birds. It is a rare natural environment, which guests find very soothing and relaxing. The retreat’s location is perfect. Use us as a base camp for exploration of this unique island. Experience all the beauty the island has to offer, and then return to your quiet oasis for a cocktail and soak in the spa.
