“Best place on the volcano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I spent two nights in the Korean themed room, and every where you turned you will find delightful adornments and amenities. I have never slept in a more comfortable bed ... the 7 layer bedding will hug you to sleep! Breakfast was healthy and generous, I was very well taken cared of by the inn keepers.

Room Tip: Get the korean one! It has a great whirl pool bath tub. Perfect for after long hikes.

We spent 3 nights in august in this little paradise in the forest and had on of our best cottage experience in Hawaii. The room was very well furnished and so nicely decorated and so clean, the breakfast just marvelous and the surrounding quit and magic. And the owners, so friendly, smily, helpful. We highly recommend this place to all type of travellers. It is the certainly the best choice in Volcano.

The Lotus Garden Cottages have everything you could want at a B&B in the middle of a rainforest. Our room was SUPER clean. As many have said, the breakfast was one of the best breakfasts I have had. At 7:30 am we were delivered a tray of fresh, tropical fruit, a pot of delicious coffee, and the most scrumptious breakfast pastries. The only downside was that the length of our trip only included one day in Volcano. I can't wait to go back here someday. Also, the host recommended a local Thai restaurant for dinner. I was pretty skeptical, but it was by far the best Thai food I have ever had.

This place was amazing from check in to check out after breakfast. Secluded, private, and very comfortable. Excellent Thai restaurant just 1mile away to, recommended by the owner of this cottage.

The breakfast was hot coffee, fresh juice, fresh local fruit, and fresh still warm pastries.

We came to Hawaii for some family business and to enjoy ourselves as much as possible in a tight time frame. It was a heady and hectic time. We found an oasis of peace and quiet at Lotus Garden Cottages and really enjoyed our two-night stay, even when the trade winds brought rain at night to Volcano. John and Induck are wonderful, unobtrusive hosts who brought us a delightful breakfast each morning, even when we had to make an early start. We will definitely be back and offer our highest recommendation for fellow travelers.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

What a delight! After a day of delayed flights, it was a treat to arrive at this quiet, quaint retreat. To have a place of our own, peace and quiet, and the hospitality of the Kims! Breakfast was wonderful - fresh fruit (best pineapple and papaya), coffee, breads, and juice. We would definitely stay again!
