Such a beautiful spot. My family spent three restful and glorious nights at the Lotus Garden Cottages. John makes lovely breakfasts. The cottages have carefully chosen decorations, and our family of four slept soundly in the soft beds. The gas fireplace came in handy on cool mornings, and my husband and I loved the quiet, garden jacuzzi when the boys... More

Clean, attention to detail with the decor, fresh breakfasts all in a friendly and helpful manner. Gas fire in the room makes a cosy evening, thankyou John. Short drive to village shops and in evening to viewing Kilueau crater night glow-fabulous, Mahalo !

Stayed here Sept. '14 3 nights. Funky. Not at all what we expected. Thought we signed up for zen inspired romantic getaway. Walked in to find extremely dated furniture and musty smell; mold in toilet (or black stains); rusty shower curtain rod. Cobwebs in tiny loft. Hot tub looked like backyard type from 30 years ago, free standing. Fridge was... More

Our stay was very lovely. We booked the lotus garden suite and I highly recommended it. All three rooms are private and all we hear through night was the rain that falling on the leaves of the rain forest. The gas fire place was a very nice additional for the raining night. The host Mr. Kim was very accommodating and... More

After traveling for nearly 5 months, we are now reflecting on a couple of accommodation choices that stood out as being well worthy of recommendation. The Lotus Garden Cottages was such a place. John the host is delightful, and could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and special. Our cottage (the Aloha Moon) was well above expectations. John... More

Lotus Gardens provided us with tranquil, quiet, peaceful surroundings while we explored The Big Island volcanoes and black sand beaches. The setting was beautifully perched in the rain forest, the hosts were gracious and kind, and the breakfasts were fresh and delicious. We appreciated the wonderfully comfortable bed after the hiking we did in the area! We will definitely return... More

Stayed here two nights to be close to the park. Very nice room with great amenities. Light breakfast, delivered by John and a cat, was tasty and artful. I really enjoyed John's artistic sense with lovely decor. Comfy bed and very quiet locale. Great view of the stars at night from the street. Would definitely stay here again!
