“Made our vacation that much better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

What am amazing place! John is a fantastic host and a fascinating individual. His Bed & Breakfast is beautiful and very clean. It was a wonderful place to return to after our fun daily adventures. Breakfast every morning was delicious and more than we expected. The rooms are very comfortable and make you feel at home.
If you are looking for a nice, quiet place, where you have no worries, you have found the perfect place!
We will go back for sure!

We stayed for a couple of nights in the Korean suite. Wonderful decor, nice cosy fireplace and whirlpool hot tub more than appreciated after a night stargazing. Breakfast was gorgeous every day as well.

We stayed at the Lotus Garden Cottages with some friends a few days ago and highly recommend it. Each room is in a raised, Balinese style building, lovely and spacious with indoor and outside seating. The bed was so comfortable and the whole place is decorated with Asian art. John Kim is a very gracious host and he brought us a plentiful breakfast on a tray which we enjoyed outside on the covered deck in the rain forest environment of Volcano. It's in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, about 15 minutes from the park headquarters. We ate dinner at thai Thai which he recommended and were very happy with our delicious food.

We stayed for two nights last week and loved it -- such a calm, zen, and really beautiful place. It is also very clean and John is a wonderful host.

Location is great, just minutes away from the park entrance, while still in a peaceful neighbourhood, surrounded by rainforest.

Looking forward to visit again sometimes in the future.

My husband and I stayed one night at Lotus Garden Cottages in the Hula Moon Suite. Mr. Kim was very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was lovely, and very clean. Our suite had everything we could need and the location was perfect for travel to the national park. The proximity and great reviews on TA were a few of the reasons why I selected this place for our stay. We did not want to drive back to Hilo at night and after reading various recommendations to stay in the Volcano area, we selected Lotus Garden. Our stay also included breakfast which was plentiful and quite delicious. Mr. Kim really spoils you when you stay here. I booked my reservation on line through the website and I had no problems what so ever. I would stay here again and would certainly recommend this place. After a long afternoon at the park we were starving and ventured to Thai Thai for dinner. Also recommended. Great service, food and very close to Lotus Garden.

Room Tip: Hula Moon, cut outs with screens that allow the stars to peak in.

Great job and thank you for a wonderful time. We love Volcano even though we don't have any idea where Volcano is located. What a long drive around a huge island in search of an orange flame. The orange flame does brighten the world and is making more land on a regular basis. Staying at this place is like staying somewhere that is constantly growing.

We found this place via the internet and 'hoped' it would be as good as it looked. It was great! Very peacful. John was great and provided us with excellent breakfast each morning. If you are visiting Volcano State Park, you should look to stay here.
