We spent the bulk of our trip over on the western side of the island but couldn’t get a room the first two nights of our stay, so we happened upon Lotus Garden and it ended up being our favorite experience of the whole vacation. The owner Mr. Kim was hospitable, friendly, and helped us check in after hours after our drive over from Kona airport ran late. Highly recommend the White Lotus suite. The room had a peaceful decor with a cozy gas fireplace, and he’d set up a dehumidifier for us so the room was a perfect temperature throughout our stay. The bath area is sizable with a large jacuzzi tub and the unit is surrounded by lovely greenery which was welcome relaxation coming from a bustling city. Within 10 minutes driving you’ll find Volcano National Park (we were so close we were able to go every day!), Ono Cafe, and the TukTuk Thai food truck – recommend visiting all 3! After leaving something behind in the room, Mr. Kim even shipped it back to our home in California with much care. We will definitely be back and have highly recommended staying here to everyone we know!
