Gorgeous and Well-Appointed Bali Temple offers 160 degree Ocean Views and a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful Hawaii experience that will leave you fully rejuvenated.
Bali Temple is truly a unique and special place to land in Hawaii, and is known for its dramatic setting, beautiful architecture and luxuriously well-appointed amenities.
Bali Temple is located right on the 1993 lava flow which has created 160 degree expansive Pacific Ocean whitewater views for your enjoyment. There is a private black sand beach a few hundred yards away to enjoy year round sunrises and sunsets and watch the humpback whales breaching during the winter months.
Bali Temple was completely remodeled in 2007 and enjoys a fully equipped modern kitchen, double vanity sinks, 6’ spa bathtub, granite, gorgeous Mahogany wood trim accents, expansive picture windows looking out to the ocean, large mirrors, a covered lanai, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, 100% cotton bedding, and thick bath towels.
There are many spectacular sites to visit during your stay: visit Kehena Beach, a gorgeous black sand beach where you may be lucky to swim and snorkel with wild spinner dolphins, and your (non) clothing is optional. Snorkel in the tide pools of Kapoho. Check out the numerous Volcano Touring activities such as: Volcano National Park, Lava Tree State Park, Lava Boat Tours, Lava Hikes, and the Geothermal Heated Hot Ponds. Experience an abundance of shopping for the true tastes of Hawaii with its abundant selections of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, flowers, and unique gift items at either Maku'u Market in Pahoa (Saturday), S.P.A.C.E. Market in Seaview (Saturday morning), the Kaimu Market (Wednesday night, and ½ mile away from Bali Temple!) complete with Hawaiian music, and the Hilo Farmer's Market (Wednesday and Saturday). Acquaint yourself with the Island flora with a tour at the Botanical Gardens, sightsee and explore numerous waterfalls, Whale Watch from the lanai, indulge yourself with fine Dining, and dance it all off at Ecstatic Dance on Sundays at Kalani, and then the Drum Circle on Sunday afternoon at Kehena Beach. There are numerous Yoga Classes, Pilates Classes, and massage therapists ready to treat you!
Dining options from Bali Temple are numerous: Right in the neighborhood is an authentic Ava Bar, serving up the local and relaxing Kava beverage, with the Kalapana Village Café is right next door, open til 9pm. Kalani Honua is 4 miles down the Red Road for delicious meals too. 8 miles up the road is Pahoa Town, with numerous options in Italian, Thai, Sushi, Mexican, Kaleo’s Bar and Grill, coffee shops, etc. Hilo is 30 miles for many more choices.
When my visitors depart Bali Temple, they feel refreshed, invigorated, and much more vibrant then when they arrived. The air along our coastline has been measured to be the cleanest in the United States! The lush greenery and scenic coastline areas are inspiring.
I look forward to your visit at Bali Temple…see you soon!
I fell in love with Kalapana/Kehena 20 minutes after my arrival! I have been all over the state, and have found no other place to be so close to the ways of old Hawaiian Living… the people of this community are happy and friendly and the way of life is still relaxed and laid back. There is as much of a social life in the Lower Puna area as any big city!
I fell in love with this property in ’06 and purchased it with the idea of creating a sanctuary to grow old in. Prior to my ownership, this property was a part of a Buddist’s Meditation Center and it was direct oceanfront. In the 1990 lava flow, the property was preserved as the lava swept along the shoreline, taking out the beaches and forming new ones. This newly created land now belongs to the state. There is approximately 200’ of lava between Bali Temple and the Pacific Ocean!
I saw myself living at this property forever, so I renovated it for 2 years in the style I wished to live, and it shows!
Living on an active volcano on the 2nd largest mountain on the planet (next to Mauna Kea, the other volcano of Big Island) has its benefits…there is a magnetic energy here that many feel to be “Supercharged”, lending itself to the dynamic and creative spirits of our community members.
Rachaelle purchased this house in 2006
Kaimu enjoys the best weather on the island, according to most Hawaiians. More Hawaiians lived here then in any other location!
Balmy nights, and 45' of rain each year, with sunshine filled days. No air conditioning or heating is needed; I fell in love with Kalapana/Kehena 20 minutes after my arrival! I have been all over the state, and have found no other place to be so close to the ways of old Hawaiian Living… the people of this community are happy and friendly and the way of life is still relaxed and laid back. There is as much of a social life in the Lower Puna area as any big city!
A natural setting as dramatic as that which Bali Temple enjoys is rare. The energy of the active volcano, whose lava flows just 10 or so miles away, is truly invigorating.
Walks along the coastal bluffs directly in front of Bali Temple give you the experience of what Hawaii was like long ago...unihabited, wild, and sensual, with the 'Techni-Colors' of Hawaii's vivid ocean and sky blues, white puffy clouds, bright greens of the vegetation, and the sound of the crashing waves you hear all day and all night.
At night, you will be in awe at the number and brightness of the star-lite skies!
Everything we hoped for. Very nicely liveable, well stocked with all the comforts of home. Tremendous views, wonderful host, great location close to tons of adventures. Great value for the price.
8 days in this paradise was not nearly enough. Great place to stay and relax. The views are spectacular and the sounds of the waves makes for a peaceful stay. Loved not having the distraction of TV or radio. Would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Hawaii.
If you are looking for a peaceful and romantic getaway this is your place. Loved the location, the view and the unit itself is spectacular. It is your private paradise. Easy to work with owner, very nice. Everything about this stay was perfect.
Ok, if you're in a soulful place and have $155 per night to spend, look no further. The accommodations and the location are an unstoppable pairing on the "Hilo" side of the Big Island. The house (you get the entire second floor) nestles up to the lava field that borders a spectacular ocean front. To walk the lava field and spend time at the water's edge is some of the most profound meditative time one can spend in nature. It's simply spectacular. The duplex is luxurious, private and offers an inviting lap for personal growth ... from the deep and wide library of teachers to the awesome art and talisman objects. As others have stated, it is conveniently close to many sites, restaurants and activities. The only caution I would offer is to those who have difficulty walking stairs as there are 15 steps leading to the apartment. Also, the king size bed stands about 4 feet off the floor and commands a kind of climbing, jumping or shimmying up onto it. No kidding. Once you're in it, it's very comfortable but it takes a certain kind of "spry-ness" to negotiate. For our tastes we found Bali Temple an ideal fit.
Stunning private location, spectacular view and sumptuous living space. A no hassle rental that will give you the peace and quiet you crave. Beautifully appointed living space with all the necessary kitchen and creature comforts. I highly recommend.
This rental is beautiful. There is a black sand oasis just a few minutes walk from the back deck we always had to ourselves. The area is mostly secluded but Pahoa is just a 10 minute drive away with some great restruants. Well worth it to get out of town. Owner is very accomidating with our toddler.
