Plant Aloha Josiah Hunt

Hawaiian Sanctuary proudly hosts an eco retreat center hand-in-hand with our non-profit farm. Our spacious, 44 acre property is abundant with edible, tropical plants including coconut, banana, cacao, papaya, breadfruit, taro, cassava, garden greens, and more. Find room to roam as you freely explore our orchards and gardens. You may even find yourself making friends with our farm fowl and peacocks!

Put your hands-in-the-earth as you work alongside our permaculture team. Learn techniques in nursery-care, pruning, grafting, propagation, composting, companion planting and other sustainably minded farming practices.

You are also invited to attend Plant Aloha hosted by visiting and local experts featuring tropical permaculture practices.


During your stay, join us for farm-to-table community meals as you mingle with staff, interns, and other guests in our open air dining area. Our in-house, holistically minded chefs prepare vegetarian plates featuring local foods, some of it even straight from our farm!

Breakfasts often feature locally raised, farm-fresh eggs, fried purple potatoes (taro), and exotic fruits such as papaya, lilikoi, rambutan, longan, and star fruit just to name a few.

For lunch, we enjoy salads made from greens fresh from the garden, and cooked veggie mixes filled with produce like kabocha squash, fried bananas and garbanzo beans with a side of whole grains. Yum!

Beautiful black sand beaches are signature to the Big Island. Check out nearby Isaac Hale Beach Park (aka Pohoiki Beach) or Kehena Beach during your stay.

And there is so much more in store! Take some time to enjoy the local area and complimentary amenities available to you at Hawaiian Sanctuary.

Start your mornings off with a rejuvenating yoga class featuring local instructors from Hawaiian Sanctuary Yoga Center. Schedule a day trip to visit nearby attractions like historic Pahoa Village, remote black sand beaches, and the recent lava flow.

You also have full access to our spa and wellness center. Soak in the ozonated hot tub and bask in our UV infrared sauna to relax your pains and worries away.
