We absolutely loved this place! And so far our favourite lodging in Big Island. Romantic and very special place. Stunning attention to detail in the Japanese features and furnishings, and even an outdoor hot tub which was great to relax in at the end of the day. Breakfast was also delicious, slightly different each day, with fresh fruit, pastries and... More

We stayed in the Lotus Suite. It's small, but very comfortable and quiet. Breakfasts were delivered to our door every morning about 7:30 AM; they were delicious. We made use of the hot tub one evening. Although it's shared between all of the units, we never saw any of the other guests. Volcano is about 30 minutes from Hilo, and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lotus Garden Cottages for a few days while visiting Volcano National Park. What a find! It is quiet and peaceful, beautifully maintained, and the breakfasts are lovely. It is convenient to the park and a lovely place to return to after a day of hiking. We also loved our visits from Choo Choo... More

Lotus Gardens is located in a quiet, green area of Volcano village and is a short drive to the national park. We stayed two nights in the Hula Moon cottage, which is beautifully decorated in Japanese style with a large bed, sitting area with TV and dining area with gas fireplace. The surrounding garden is also in Japanese style and... More

We stayed in the Aloha Moon room, as we were celebrating our fortieth wedding anniversary. It was nestled in a tropical location with lots of ferns, palms, and exotic plants. John, the owner, served us a fantastic breakfast including various fruits and egg dish. He was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to eat. I would highly recommend his... More

Excellent location for hiking and exploring volcano. Relaxing zen type of place. Owner was great! Jacuzzi was a bonus. Excellent room, very romantic. Breakfast was so so but not a deal breaker. Hilo is a reasonable drive away. John owner was knowledge about area, helpful. He is an excellent B & B owner very friendly and helpful during our stay.

Lotus Garden Cottages is truly one of the most memorable places we've stayed. It's set off the road in the village of Volcano, maybe a 3-5 minute drive to the Volcano park entrance. The B&B is perfect for the setting - surrounded by nature, it's the perfect combination of privacy and comfort. Beds were extremely comfortable, facilities were great. We... More

We stayed at the Aloha Moon cottage as part of our honeymoon trek across Hawaii. From the very beginning we were in love with the cottage, and even though we were only there for one evening, had a wonderful experience. Everything was in great working order, and the bed was beyond comfortable. We even had a surprise bottle of wine... More
