CBS' popular reality dating show 'Love Island' is all set to make a comeback with Season 3. While everybody's focus and attention will be on the budding love and heartbreaks between the contestants (also known as islanders) as they fall in and out of love, one can't miss the very vibrant and colorful interiors of the villa where the twelve hot islanders will be residing for the next few weeks.

'Love Island' Season 3 was filmed in Hilo, Hawaii. The popular dating show's season 1 was filmed in the beautiful island of Fiji, but unfortunately due to the global pandemic, for season 2 the showrunners had to move base to Las Vegas. Although the second season wasn't filmed on an island, as the show's title would suggest, nevertheless, it turned out to be a very successful season. For the third season, the showrunners have decided to honor the show's title once again and have zeroed in on the sunny beaches of Hawaii to film the popular dating show. Read on to know more about where it was filmed, and also how you can stay there.

Where was 'Love Island' Season 3 filmed?

As mentioned earlier 'Love Island' season 3 was filmed in Hilo, Hawaii. The show was reportedly set to be filmed at the Grand Naniloa Hotel in Hilo, as reported by Hawaii Tribune-Herald The report also quotes State Film Commissioner Donne Dawson estimating that the budget for the show is "almost double" the budget of the 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull', the last movie that was shot in Hilo. In case you're wondering what the budget of the 'Indiana Jones' movie was then it was reportedly a whopping $20 million! So, this means 'Love Island's budget might be close to a cool $40 million!
