Where to stay in Hana

Located on the southeastern end of Maui--an island known for featuring lodging options for every type of traveler--Hana boasts a single luxury resort and several more affordable tropical retreats. Expect higher prices if you plan to stay near the water, especially if you want an ocean view from your bed. To stay more economically, consider one of Hana's good-value rental cottages, which make up in simple hospitality what they lack in modern amenities.

  • This stopover on the Hana Highway is perfect for anyone who would like a relaxed way to take in the beauty of the area with safe trails and parking. We loved being able to finally learn the names of a...  more »

  • Little disappointed. $15 per person. You are on a bluff so you get great views. But the gardens felt more like someone's manacured back yard. If you have difficulty walking especially on hilly terrain...  more »

  • Loved it. Pretty easy hiking around. Could have spent at least 5 hrs In here looking at all the cool things. The garden is well labeled and tells you what type of tree or flower and then will give a fact or two. Amazing views! They have candy style machines to feed the ducks and peakocks. So bring quarters!
  • A beautiful, mystical and pleasurable stop on the road to Hana. You need to drive to the end, park, go to the gardens on the other side of the dirt road, and basically walk hike both downhill and towards the entry-way to see all the awesomeness (plants, doves, bamboo groves, peacocks , waterfall views, statutes, breathtaking views of the pacific ocean around Maui....) the space has to offer. It took me a good hour to walk all the trails . To the people complaining it was small- you probably didn't walk far enough or take some of the interwoven paths.In a society where we spend so much money on say booze, cigarettes, food out, consumer debt etc---- This is SO worth the $15 investment per person. Value yourself, value nature, and if you "need" to save money, consider that cable bill/bar tab/ fast food/ cigarette habit/ whatever---but don't gripe about the cost of health or well-loved nature.
  • Loved hiking in the garden. Well graveld roads with very informative map. Has an overlook to 2 waterfalls and valley. 100 year old mango tree, banana trees, bamboo forest r all there. Had a great time.
  • Absolutely beautiful place. Surroundings are breathtaking with stunning nature on the coast of Maui. Great hospitality and simple yet nice food and drinks to buy. Can highly recommend this place.
  • This place was not on our itinerary when we planned our Road to Hana excursion. To be honest, we just stopped by to use their restroom, lol. Entrance fee is quite pricey at $15 per person. Contrary to their map, this garden is pretty small. You will get to see some ducks and a nice waterfall, though. With a name like Garden of Eden, many tourists including myself would have been expecting something more than what there was.
