"Aloha aku Aloha mai" means The love you give is the love you receive.

Pause Hawaii is designed to not only restore and nourish Pause guests, but to also support and protect the island's ecosystem, economy and people. Pause endeavors to minimize our event's footprint, promote and support local farming and small business, honor the local Hawaiian people with respect and promote environmental awareness. As a Pause guest, you can be proud to be a part of an eco-tour industry and you will be making a positive impact to the Hawaiian islands. Five percent of our annual profit is donated to local Hawaiian charitable organizations. If you want to spread the love even more, during your stay (upon your request) your group would have the opportunity to learn more about the nonprofit relief organizations that we support or another that interests you. If you or your group desire to give to a local group aligned with supporting Hawaiian people or ecology, we can invite a board member of the charity to come and visit with us. These receptions can be quite rewarding.
