Meet the Innkeeper
Established in 2005, Lotus Garden Cottages Bed & Breakfast proprietor, John Kim, left the crazy world of information technology behind to pursue his love of nature and volcanoes, and created a peaceful respite from a fast paced world. Once immersed in this ancient volcanic rainforest, he felt compelled to share his idyllic paradise and opened the gates to the luxuriously appointed Lotus Garden Cottages B & B.
A music lover at heart and classically trained, whispers of John’s melodic violin concertos serenade guests as they stroll along garden paths or relax by the Koi pond. Reminiscent of gentle Volcano mists, John’s compositions are inspired by resplendent forest hues and silver moonbeams that shimmer in the night sky.
John’s Korean heritage sets the tone for a blissful refuge with the perfect blend of Asian and Hawaiian hospitality. Deeply touched by teachings of the sacred Lotus flower and magic of Goddess Pele, John has created a magnificent haven designed to unveil your inner self.
Known for its gracious hospitality, Lotus Garden Cottages has become an eclectic oasis where busy urbanites from around the world seek refuge, slow down, take a deep breath and revel in extraordinary volcanic wonder.
