“A little peace of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

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!

If you are going to stay in Volcano, which I really recommend (for the volcano at night, nothing else), stay here! I do a ton of research everywhere I go and this place lives up to the glowing reviews - peace and quiet, lovely linens and decor, great fireplace to warm it up at night, and Mr. kitty came and napped on the chair, which we loved. Breakfast was lovely - tropical fruit, warm cornbread and bagels, all served on our own little deck. Thank you to the sweet owners!
