I organised our trip to the Big Island 6 months in advance, including one night booked and paid for in full at this accommodation. 3 days prior to our intended stay, and while in the midst of our Hawaii adventure, I received an email from the owner advising that a new booking system had overwritten our booking and apologised that...

My husband and I chose to stay at the Lotus Garden as part of our honeymoon and we certainly wasn't disappointed. When we arrived Megan wasn't around but Jasper helped settle us in to our room along with one of his and Megan's cat - as we're both cat lovers we found the cat with the long fur to be... More

My wife and I spent a week at The Lotus garden and found the entire experience to be outstanding. The room itself was clean and well furnished, and was adjacent to a full kitchen. The setting was charming, colorful, and with the kind of feel you just can't find at a hotel or most other settings. The Hosts, Megan &... More

You can't beat the location if you're visiting Hilo. Right in the heart of it, walking distance to farmers' market and local restaurants, museum and movie theatre. Easy access to waterfalls, Volcanoes National Park and Mauna Loa plantation. Cute design, clean, peaceful and friendly management.

This gem is hidden right off a main drag in downtown Hilo – a treasure inside bright red gates just off the beaten path. Megan & Jasper, the owners, have decorated the buildings in cheerful colors, with many special artistic touches throughout. The grounds are really lovely and peaceful, with Buddha sculptures tucked into lush plantings, giant avocado trees, gorgeous... More

My Mom and I stayed 2 nights in this lovely, colorful place. It is a pretty, quiet compound, centrally located and full of flowers and a fabulous avocado tree; the cottage we stayed in was very clean, tastefully decorated and had all visitors could need - towels, hairdryer, equipped kitchen, and privacy as the rooms are on separate floors. Hosts... More

We stayed in the Lohi Apartment on our last trip to Hilo and could not have had a better stay. Megan and Jasper were wonderful hosts and were always ready with advice on restaurants and places to visit. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Hilo next to the farmers market and a short walk to many great... More

We highly recommend The Lotus Garden as the perfect place to stay in Hilo. We stayed in the Lotus Cottage, a charming 2-bedroom raised lodging. This is NOT a conventional "hotel" room/suite but rather a unique place that soothes the soul and fosters a sense of romance. Approaching the Garden from the street, one is given a peek through an...

We stayed in the attic of the 'Sugar Shack'. It is a lovely retreat in the midst of town, close to everything you might need. The attic is lovely and full of light. Great ambiance and truly lovely and helpful hosts. Plus, maybe the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on!

We are a family of four- 2 adults, and kids ages 14 and 10 years old, and we found the Lotus Garden's "Sugar Shack" a welcoming place to call home base while we were staying in Hilo. We appreciated having the space to spread out, including functional outdoor areas and a full kitchen, and the location right in downtown Hilo... More
