          Hello! We just booked with you for January 2017. It seems a common concern is the tepid temperature of the water for the outdoor shower. Is this something that has been fixed? I must admit that while I am someone who enjoys natural beauty I also enjoy not being too cold outside, and I've stayed in Volcano before (so, brrr!). Mahalo nui loa for your response. :)

          Aloha, Yes, the temperature in the outdoor shower has been monitored and adjusted since those occasional concerns were mentioned.
