A vacation at Polestar is full of Spirit, adventure, community and fun! Relax, connect with friends and rejuvenate yourself in a spiritually supportive and family-friendly environment. We encourage guests to participate in the daily life of the community to whatever extent they feel inspired and many visitors find an energizing balance of sightseeing, spiritual practice, and relaxation.
Here’s just some of what you can experience while vacationing at Polestar:
There is plenty of time for yoga, deep relaxation, and meditation in our lovely Polestar temple, available at all hours of the day or night for spiritual practice. Our daily schedule includes guided pranayama, meditation, and chanting; guided hatha yoga 3 times per week, a weekly kirtan, and longer meditations on the weekends.
We are situated on 20 beautiful acres about a 40 minute drive south of Hilo (on the Big Island) and a ten minute drive to the ocean. Accommodations include everything from tent camping and cabins to single and double occupancy rooms and include full access to the spacious common room (with Wi-Fi), kitchen, yoga temple, spiritual library, beautiful grounds, open air community center (basketball anyone?) orchard and large garden, hiking areas and more. Home cooked vegetarian meals are a shared, daily occurrence: we have fruits and vegetables of every description growing in abundance and making their way onto our plates! If you enjoy cooking you are welcome to join us in preparing some meals in our community kitchen and explore for yourself some of the culinary marvels of the tropics.
