Hawaii - Big Island
Hospitality Industry

Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Hawaii - Big Island area.

The southernmost point of the United States (Key West is the southernmost point in the continental U.S.), Hawaii's Big Island is larger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined, and is still growing due to Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, continuing to spew lava which cools into additional land mass. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park affords a close view of this and other volcanoes, where the ancient goddess of fire Pele was appeased with sacrifices long ago. The Big Island is a land of diversity, with many of the world's cultures contributing to its cuisine and customs. Also a land of extremes, the Big Island is the home of Kona coffee, Lake Waiaha the world's highest lake, Akaka Falls the world's tallest falls, Mauna Kea the world's tallest mountain measuring 32,000 feet from the ocean floor, and the largest, privately-owned ranches in the U.S. The shops of Hilo and Kailua-Kona attract visitors from all over the world, where the Island's cultural diversity is further reflected in the merchandise found there. The Big Island also is situated to include 11 of world's 13 climate zones, enabling the visitor to experience dense rain forests, deserts, and mountain snow, all within a few hours of each other. The variety of inns available on the Big Island gives the visitor a choice between living in a rain forest, along the ocean, near a lava flow, or on a high plain. If you want to stay where you can get a good impression of Hawaii's natural beauty and diverse culture, without a lot of the traffic and commercialism, then choosing the Big Island is your best bet.
