Smoking hot views at Volcano HouseHawaii Island, USA

Waking up to a golden sunrise at a beachside hotel? How pedestrian. At this Hawaiian address you might spy an amber glow on the horizon at any hour; only it’s not the sun’s rays in the distance. You, my friend, are watching lava spew from one of earth’s most active volcanoes. Situated on the rim of Ki-lauea Caldera, Volcano House is the only hotel in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The property first opened in 1846 as a simple, one-room shelter, but it’s since undergone a multimillion-dollar refurb and added 32 more substantial rooms. With natural wonders on your doorstep the hoteliers have opted to keep things simple. While there’s free wi-fi and an in-room coffee brewer, forget about TVs – there’s a nature documentary happening right outside your window.


  • Wi-fi
