  • We visited after snorkeling. Gardens are very nice. Self guided tour was informative. Lots of signage. Beautiful plants. Galaxy garden is especially awesome.

  • 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
  • Fabulous place to appreciate the gifts of the universe through spiritual and botanical wonder. Wander through the displays, many of which are connected with gifts from spiritual teachers. Meditate under a bodhi tree grown from a cutting directly descended from the one under which the Buddha first gained enlightenment. Many different spiritual traditions represented here. It was a gift to be able to wander here. Not to be missed.
  • This garden is truly a hidden treasure. It is a really peaceful spot with a great collection of native plants and flowers that are quite clearly labeled for those who want to know what they are. Beautiful spot - worth the visit.
  • Paleaku is one of our favorite places to visit when we come to the Big Island. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful and we always feel so captured by the tropical beauty that this place offers. We highly recommend everyone who travels to Kona, to visit this beautiful place.
  • This place is absolutely wonderful. They have some of the best fresh organic fruit in the area and their garden is stunning, it is one of the most beautiful places on the entire island.
