Hedonisia Hawaii has been featured on the Huffington Post!
I just had a great week doing the Taste of Hedonisia program. Mojo and all of the managers are super chill and friendly. I stayed at the Guava Hut which was spacious with a big comfy bed- fell asleep to the sounds of coqui frogs and woke up to bird songs. Loved showering outdoors surrounded by trees.
Live, Learn & Grow in Hawaii! Hedonisia is a jungle oasis community for eco-tourists, backpackers and aspiring social entrepreneurs tucked away in the lush rain forests of 'Big Island' Hawaii.
Hedonisia Hawaii has been welcoming 'volun-tourists' and 'eco-tourists' from around the world for over a decade. Whether you stay for a week or a few months you can enjoy affordable 'green' lodgings and/or participate in our educational volunteer programs.
Community based tourism is a great way to live, work and socialize with other travelers. This is what makes Hedonisia so different from traditional hotels where it is often difficult to meet people or be social. On the contrary, many friendships and relationships have blossomed at our community in paradise!
As our model of community based eco-tourism becomes more popular we are receiving an increasing number of returnees! We welcome you to be part of our 'community of individuals'!
Eco-Community Lodging, Volunteer & Educational Options
We offer a variety of community experience options to stay and get involved at Hedonisia. Take a look through our various programs for an option that suits your interests and travel style.
Relax and enjoy the jungle! We welcome backpackers, travelers and eco-tourists for nightly and long-term stays in our quirky jungle lodgings!
Our accommodations range from a cozy studio cottage with ensuite bathroom and kitchen to more rustic eco-huts made from recycled materials. We also offer hostel style dormitory lodgings and private camping spots.
Live, work and learn in a sustainable community through 'volun-tourism'! Our volunteer work-trade program is based on 'pleasurable activism'! We try to do good work environmentally and through our social enterprise web projects but we also enjoy living in the paradise that is Hawaii!
Fair-trade volunteers enjoy a vacation in Hawaii at a discount price doing various types of voluntary work. In addition to our farming and land activities, (aka Body work!), you can also choose Heart, or Mind work!
Learn to manage an eco-tourist community in Hawaii! For a one-time fee which includes tax and lodgings, we offer a 3-week Intern Training, which, if you complete successfully, allows you to become part of the Hedonisia Intern Team!
This is a residential working and educational program for Interns who wish to stay in Hawaii for three weeks up to one year. When you 'graduate' as an Intern Community Manager you volunteer only 2 days a week leaving you 5 days to work on your own projects or simply enjoy the paradise that is Hawaii!
Since 2004 when we started Hedonisia Hawaii, we have developed principles and practices that provide a philosophical and practical foundation for creating and managing your own Community, Activist, Feminist & Environmental business enterprise and 'change the world'!
Learn how to use honesty, transparency, efficiency, and activism to become a Pleasurable Activist & Ethical Entrepreneur and give yourself and wonderful and meaningful career in the process!
