The name of Volcano House pretty much tells you what you need to know: Since 1877, a hotel with that name has offered guests spectacular views of Halema‘uma‘u Crater in what is now called Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. But its most recent edition, built in 1941, has been closed for more than three years for multi-million-dollar renovations; when it officially reopens next month, the dining room will also sport a new name as well as a new look and new, locally sourced menu.
Enter the contest to name the new restaurant by May 15 on the hotel’s Facebook page and you could win a two-night stay along with breakfast for two both days and dinner and a bottle of wine for two on one of the evenings. The new name will be revealed June 1 for the grand reopening of the 33-room hotel complex, now managed by Hawai‘i Volcanoes Lodge Company (a partnership of concessionaire Ortega National Parks, which operates Stow Lake Boathouse, among other sites, and Honolulu-based Aqua Hospitality.)
