An oasis for native plant and animal life, showcases native plants and trees plus those uncommon to Hawaii, such as rare Amazon fruits, medicinal species, endangered hardwoods, and exotic nut trees. You'll have the chance to feed ducks in the duck pond, see the peacocks strut through the gardens, and view hundreds of lowland rainforest species of flowers and shrubs. Walk along well-maintained gravel trails throughout the garden, where you can stop and take pictures with waterfalls as your backdrop. Please note that there is no direct access to the nearby waterfall or pools from the garden.

  • First of all, yes, there is a $15.00 per person admission fee. Granted, this can be expensive when travelling with a family. Perhaps the owner could consider a family pass for more than 3 people. Howe...  read more »
  • Do not bother to make a special visit. It is expensive and although the current owners do their best to maintain and operate the property it is just simply not up to some of he other botanical gardens...  read more »
  • Stopped in on the road to Hana. What a pleasant surprise. An absolute must see. The gardens are beautiful and the hiking trails are meticulously maintained. Worth the stop. 
  • Had the misfortune of visiting during a fairly heavy rain. Still worth the cost & the drive. Beautiful foliage everywhere, very friendly staff. Beautiful scenery & views. Neat gift shop with the most beautiful woman in all Hawaii.
  • The entry fees aren't posted. It's only when you're at a little booth with other cars lined up behind you that your get given the price of $15 per person (not per car). It's a pleasant place - if you're into botany I'm sure it would be a amazing. We stopped and had lunch at a picnic table and had a look at the views. I'm sure it costs a lot to maintain, but for me, not worth it. There are enough awesome views and sights as you drive the Road to Hana.
  • Ignore negative reviews and make this stop for a mystical experience. Our trip from the city was specifically to tour the gardens and well worth the price and drive. Being from the deserts of Arizona, the variety of exotic birds, trees and flowers was amazing. The photo opportunities were abundant as we strolled thru the fragrant flowers and fruits. Take a picnic lunch as we did enjoy in one of the several picturesque settings. Take your time as there's no rush and learn from the several signs posted with names an history of much of the foliage. I would have loved to have a list and photos of the birds we encountered. Can't wait to get home to see and order prints. Thank you Alan for a wonderful experience!
  • Unbelievable. This place is absolutely gorgeous. Quiet and peaceful. Some guides will tell you that there are other places to view the same or similar things that are free but in my opinion the fact that this place charges a fee to enter is just what is needed. The price deters some people from going so it is not an overrun spot like others on the Road to Hana. Some stops are optional on the trip, this should be put on your list of stops.
  • A nice place to stop for a while, a few great views of the coast and some waterfalls. It costs a little more than it feels like you are getting out of it, but was good to stop and walk around for a while. If you are just needing to use the restroom, drive about 5 minutes to the east to the Kaumahina State Wayside park.
