Meet Your Host

Your host at Hale Ohia is Michael Tuttle, a Kentucky native. As you might imagine, the road from Lexington to the Big Island was a winding one. With a degree in Architecture, Michael has been involved in the construction and real estate business, having renovated and saved several historic buildings in the Lexington area.

A detour into the food service industry lead to opening a restaurant, working as a private chef on a thoroughbred horse farm and the position of Food Director for a retirement community. There, the residents convinced Michael to follow his dream and move to Hawaii. At the suggestion of a friend, he visited Volcano Village to view the Hale Ohia property. As soon as he drove up the drive, Michael knew it was the place for him.
