    This is by far one of the best Botanical Gardens I've ever been to. It is not only full of stunning plants, but is well designed. The variety of plants and staturary make for an odd mix of excitement ...  more »

    Absolutely worth every minute and every dollar you spend for entrance. I could spend all day here. The plans and wildlife brought me so much peace. There are also yoga classes and a quiet room for contemplation, reading, or whatever. One of the nearest places on the island

    This place is a gem of a find. I got to meet with Shelley and Tobi who created us to some locally brewed macadamia nut coffee and some personally hand rolled green tea by Tobi herself. The garden itself is amazing. It used to be a sanctuary and retreat frequented by Buddhists and people of other Faith's. Today it is now a nonprofit Botanical Garden that is full of life. If you're ever in Kona that make it a point to come check this place out and spend at least an hour.

    Very peaceful and lovely place to spend a couple hours. Gorgeous flowers and views. We've been coming here for years and always enjoy it. Great yoga classes as well.

    Only been to the gift shop which has some cute gifts and ceramic vases. The garden seem beautiful and peaceful

    For us, this was a true peace sanctuary. One of the reasons being that it's a bit hard to find, and as a result, very few people. A large and very well maintained property with fruit trees, unique garden zones, and some HUGE lady Buddha statues. We'll be back
