Sometimes you owe your enjoyment of a particular lodging not just to its decor, service and amenities–sometimes it’s all about the surrounding environment and how it makes you feel immersed in a special, beautiful place. Sheltered from the elements but still very close to nature. Here are two places that deliver this type of unique satisfaction:
Ramshala, Big Island, Hawaii: Situated on a black sand beach on the lush, green eastern side of the Big Island, you’re likely to see dolphins, sea turtles, and even whales from November through April. It’s also one of the best places to see lava from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park flowing into the ocean.
Kokopelli’s Cave Bed & Breakfast, Farmington, New Mexico: A 1,650 square foot cave dwelling 70 feet below the surface. Enjoy the juxtaposition of authentic sandstone walls and plush carpeting!
