Lotus Garden Hilo

A traveler with a sincere intention to contribute will find that there is plenty that comes back to them. We have a simple hotel with simple accommodations in a town that is friendly and easy to get around in. We are in walking distance of one beach and there is a lot to see on this island. This side of the island doesn't have white sand beaches and it can be rainy (sometimes). The weather is usually warm and there are some spectacular sights including a wild coastline, great hiking, a few beaches where turtles swim. Transport is ok. Hitchhiking is pretty common and we provide bicycles to our guests.

We are very involved in the business so volunteers would expect to have a lot of contact with us on a daily basis. We like to be friendly and provide a relaxed atmosphere. Attention to detail is important to us. We are a small hotel so what we do here is important and contributes to keeping an atmosphere appealing to guests. Jasper likes to play music Megan likes to take time to be at the beach or go hiking when she can.
