Rooms are dark, dated bedding, terrible pillows. Bathroom needed deep cleaning, dead spiders around the tub. Lots of cobwebs inside windows and outside around the rooms windows. No maid service for two of the four nights. Came back after a long day and bed not freshened or made. Limited parking when guests took more than their allowed space. Arrived 9:30 pm after canceled flights and a 2.5 hour drive in the dark. Owner was very upset that we called him due to insufficient parking. Not what we had hoped for with this price point!

Property's Favorite Review
One of the most beautiful and peaceful lodging facilities anywhere. Having stayed in three of the four suites (all except Aloha Moon), all are superb, immaculately clean, quiet with very comfortable beds and soft linens. Each suite is decorated with distinct and unique Asian art and cultural objects. My fave, Rising Moon, has wonderful outdoor spaces, a front lanai if you want sun, and a back zen garden that is partially covered (it is in a rain forest). White Lotus suite has a huge jacuzzi (room for two). Hula Moon has a large table in front of a fireplace. All have kitchenettes with coffee and tea making, as well as a microwave. Mr Kim is constantly working on the rooms (he is building an additional cottage), adding new features and curios. He is a wonderful, friendly host. The staff cleans the rooms and makes the beds every day (like the old days). Every afternoon your breakfast is delivered and placed in the refrigerator so every morning, at your leisure, you can have lots of fresh fruit and home baked goods. As a resident of the Big Island, I love hiking the volcano and always choose The Lotus Gardens. Tip: Get takeout from the Thai food truck or Thai Thai and eat on your lanai!

We had high hopes for the Lotus Garden cottages. Alas, it is not exactly as described on the website. On the plus side, it is very close to Volcano National Park. The owner, Mr. Kim, has collected some beautiful pieces that decorate the property. Our room was lovely looking and had nice touches included like bathrobes, a preset table and a big tub with Epsom salts. On the negative side, we stayed in January when the temperature fell to 51 degrees at night. The little propane fueled heater in the White Lotus Room did not cut it. I slept in a sweatshirt with every cover plus the bathrobe over me. Going to the bathroom in the middle of the night was the temperature equivalent of going outside to the outhouse. The pillows are limp rags; useless for resting my head and neck on them after an eight hour day of hiking in the park. The breakfast consists mainly of Costco items and is put in the room refrigerator the day before. The idea is for the guest to microwave any items that need to be heated up. A microwaved croissant plus a strawberry, a few kiwi and a Nutrigrain bar is not what I consider fuel for an active day. Also, the first night the two of us were given enough for one person. Both mornings we had to go have a real breakfast elsewhere. The setting is indeed zen like (aside from the owner’s ongoing construction projects which greeted us when we drove up). However, the garden stone path and the large leafed plants growing across it made bringing in luggage and toting roller bags. We wanted so much to love this place like all the reviews and those left in the room’s guest book, but wish we had stayed elsewhere.

Lotus Garden Cottages was my favorite accommodation during our 2 week Hawaii trip, and honestly, one of my favorite things about our entire trip. We stayed 3 nights in the Aloha Moon suite. The accommodations were downright luxurious for the two of us -- comfortable bed, fireplace, large jacuzzi tub and shower. It would be the perfect honeymoon suite. I was worried that it might be too humid without air conditioning in the room, but the temperature was perfect during the day and cool (50s Fahrenheit) in the evenings and early morning. We used the fireplace to heat up the space and for the ambiance. I loved the meditation loft, which had a nice view of the rainforest and surrounding cottage roofs. We loved hearing the rain in the evenings and ate breakfast on the lanai. The Aloha Moon suite faces the main road, but the room still felt private and surrounded by rainforest vegetation. The breakfast included with the accommodation was amazing and abundant for the two of us. Each morning had fresh pineapple, other fruit, and rotating pastries, with rotating quiche, breakfast burritos, and croissants. We always had some food for a snack later. We availed ourselves of the jacuzzi one rainy evening, and John also let us use the properties laundry facilities, as our stay was near the midpoint of our trip. The only challenges that we encountered were trying to park our behemoth rental suv in the parking area and trying to find dinner on the holiday Sunday evening of our arrival, since Volcano is a ways from Hilo. It is, however, super close to Volcano National Park, where we spent several amazing days exploring and still only seeing part of the park. As soon as we arrived, I regretted not booking a longer stay at Lotus Garden and knew that none of our subsequent lodgings would come close to providing the amenities and experience of staying here. We will be back and definitely have shared this property with other friends and family planning a Hawaii stay!

This is a tranquil retreat very close to the park. We reserved 2 cottages for our family of 2 teens and 2 adults. More than enough room. Very special spot - uniquely decorated and you feel like you are right in the rainforest. Breakfast was delicious! Highly recommend.

A lot of time and care has gone in to this place. Our room had a king bed and was spacious. The grounds are very well kept and the owner was pleasant and helpful. We arrived on the island and drove here and checked in around 4, it was a very easy two hour drive from Kona. We spent today in the park and are going back to Kona tomorrow with a stop at the black sand beach along the way. Two nights was perfect and there are a few nice places to dine nearby. This is a very quiet place, not just the hotel, the entire area. I would suggest this to anyone staying in the area. We were in the Hula room and it was great.

If you are planning to visit the Volcanoes National Park this is the place to stay! It is less than 10 minutes away from the park which allowed us to hurry back and actually see the volcano erupt after we had left the park for the day. The whole property is beautiful, has free parking, no hidden resort fees and they provide a lovely breakfast each morning. The breakfast was a huge plus! It looked beautiful, tasted great and was enough to give you energy if you’re planning to hike the day away. We stayed in the Aloha moon cottage which was so peaceful and had an amazing tub that overlooked the gardens (but was still very private and relaxing). The place is well maintained, clean, and we had no issue with bugs despite being surrounded by the gardens. Would definitely Recommend!!

A beautiful setting very close to Volcano National park. It was a serene and pretty environment in a tropical paradise to come back to and relax after the wild and harsh landscape of the volcanoes. The cottages are spacious, clean and have everything you would want for a relaxing stay. The breakfast provided was plentiful and delicious. We came from London and we’re due to fly to Maui a couple of days before the tragic fires started. The owner was so helpful and lent us his own phone so that we could change our flights, hotels and trips etc and we were therefore able to enjoy a week on Oahu instead, although mindful always of the horror unfolding on Maui. It really is the best place to stay in the area.

We had a lovely stay at Lotus Garden Cottages. The cottages themselves are A frame wooden cottages and we stayed in the Hula room. The breakfast included an abundance of fruit and some pastries which you can heat yourself in the microwave. The bed was very comfortable, and the the evenings were quiet with the sound of frogs to lull you to sleep. We appreciated the binder that contained information on things to do in the area. Also, Kilaeua erupted while we were staying, do we lucked out! The only reason this isn't a five star review is the bathroom had a bit of a musty scent to it that extended to the rest of the cottage. The cottage itself felt quite damp which required us to use the fireplace even thought it was warm. Overall we had a positive experience and a restful stay so that we could get up early for hikes in Volcanoes National Park.

Lotus Garden Cottages was the romantic B&B in the rainforest I had hoped for. With zen decor and colorful flowery gardens, it was like a fantasy. We were in the White Lotus Suite, which I highly recommend using as a bridal suite like I did because it has the most perfect, enormous bathroom for getting ready. The owner even let me use a flower from his garden for my hair which was so sweet! Breakfast was great, beds were comfortable, there was tons of hot water, and the photos we took on the grounds came out dreamy and beautiful. All around a wonderful experience!
