Exceptional 10.0
A true sanctuary!
It’s called a “sanctuary” for a reason! Very quiet, peaceful location, and yet only 15 min drive to downtown. Appears the property is up for sale, so if you want to experience this oasis, I would do it sooner than later! The property is vegan only, so being an omnivore, was a little bit of an adjustment. The room is quite comfortable, but definitely not fancy. Very relaxing to stroll through the grounds.

Tranquility as it is
A very quiet place overlooking the ocean from the top. It's green and neat. Guests can meditate and spend time unplugged from the real world. There is a fully equipped kitchen, and you can cook anything you want there.

Not you're typical lodging option
Beautiful and QUIET and certainly not your typical Hawaiian lodging. I booked a multi-island three plus week trip with multiple stops and thought that the Banyan Tree Sanctuary would be a nice break from the typical condo/resort lodging experiences that the rest of our visit was full of. I was right - this was an out-of-the-box type of lodging. EXTREMELY peaceful and quiet - I loved it. I do recommend spending a tad more and getting you're own private cabin, I stayed in Dragon's Nest cabin. When in a "sanctuary" I want my peace, therfore when the staff PUSHED their political stances on current events I found it unwelcomed. If you're coming to Kona for convenient beach lodging this is not your place.

September 3 night stay
Banyan Tree Sanctuary was a unique place. We stayed for 3 nights in the Dragons Nest villa, which had a private attached bath. We enjoyed the plentiful fresh fruit every morning. The hot tub was out of order during our stay, but we made use of the dry sauna and fabulous pool nightly. The sanctuary grounds are beautiful, consisting of a garden and awesome view of the ocean. The shared kitchen is vegan; we are not, but had no issues respecting the values during our stay.

Quiet sanctuary
On the whole it was quite pleasant. The kitchen is vegan so don't look for bacon and eggs. It is very quiet and has a great view and garden. We borrowed gear and went snorkeling.
