Welcome to Mele Kohola

Mele Kohola, Hawaiian for "Whale Song".  Immerse yourself in a little bit of Hawaii, where you can escape harried urban existence and relax to the whisper of waves breaking on the shoreline and feel the caress of gentle trade wind breezes. Dainty orchids grow in lush surrounding fields and seasonal humpback whales frolic in the protected coves. Visit Hawaii Volcano National Park, home to rare and endangered wildlife such as the elusive scarlet i'iwi honey creeper, the friendly Nene Goose, towering Koa trees and graceful Ohia
