Intentional Health/Intentional Health Hawaii
To our visitors of the Intentional Health Hawaii Retreat in Hawaii: the retreat is located in a Hawaiian tropical rainforest on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is generally warm even when it rains. Journey to the gentle jungle of east Hawaii for a deeply memorable experience that only being on an active volcano can provide.
Hawaiian Sanctuary is a tropical farm and eco-rejuvenation center. We provide experiential education in the areas of wellness, permaculture, Hawaiian Culture, social dynamics/communication, and much more!
Let us provide you with innovative accommodations; either a private room, shared cabins (what we call jungalows) or eco pods. A private room will have a tempurpedic queen mattress, closet and fan, with shared bathrooms just steps away. Relax in our health spa, enjoy prepared meals from our gardens, family style classes on wellness, permaculture classes, and more.
Listen for the sound of the conch for each breakfast and lunch, prepared from the land with luscious coconuts, salad greens and savory plates, and creative stews. We bring local experts to teach us about returning to the land, growing our food and re-connecting to ourselves, each other, and the earth.
Thanks to Interns harvesting food from the organic GMO-free garden which provides fresh greens year-round from the land, there are usually racks of organic bananas, coconuts, passion fruit and other fruits from the land, available for snacking in the kitchen. Explore the grounds, trails and walking paths through amazing edible food forests.
We offer ongoing classes and special events in our beautiful yoga & dance studio. Please view our events calendar to get a taste of what you can expect during your time here.
This retreat training will deliver community style living with a private retreat experience. Nestle in our sanctuary close to town, yet worlds away from life as you know it!
This experience is for those who take responsibility for themselves and embrace the opportunity to expand their beliefs, dissolve limited thinking and awaken their heart to vibrant health and radiant living.
Clothing should be comfortable for classes and outside events, yoga clothes for yoga if you are interested. You may want to bring a light jacket, sweater or wrap for evenings. There is coin laundry in downtown Pahoa.
High Speed Wireless Internet is available for your laptop but we suggest that you do not bring many electric appliances such as hair dryers, electric shavers, etc. We are eco-friendly and partially on solar power. Bring cameras for sure! We suggest that you do not bring expensive jewelry or items along as we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Give yourself a chance to return to your natural beauty!
Once you land you may want to purchase a flash light, the tropical rainforest can get pretty dark at night. Other suggested items: sunscreen lotion, bathing suit, beach towel, open and closed toe shoes, natural mosquito repellent (tea tree oil). Biodegradable soaps/shampoos/toiletries (our showers feed the gardens!)

Hawaiian Sanctuary is on the Big Island (The Healing Island). It is approximately a 3 hour drive from the Kona Airport and a 45 minute drive from the Hilo International Airport (ITO). We are located on a 44-acre tropical farm sanctuary on ancient Hawaiian lands in the Puna District, one of the last undeveloped, magical, coastal regions on the Big Island of Hawaii.
The farm is on the windward side, 21 miles southeast of Hilo – a culturally diverse university town – and less than 1 mile from Pahoa – a historic town with excellent restaurants, grocery stores, Island Natural health food store, post office and library.
