Aloha and welcome to Mauis Garden Of Eden Arboretum. An Arboretum is a park dedicated to trees. We also feature hundreds of lowland rainforest species of flowers,shrubs,and ground covers as well.We began this project in1991 with 30 acres of densely overgrown jungle, now after investing more than 20yrs of physical labor and 2 million dollars, we have created one of Hawaii's most visited botanical gardens. We have many plants found nowhere else or are uncommon to Hawaii, such as rare Amazon fruits and medicinal species, endangered hardwoods, spice, exotic nut trees, ferns and so much more...A botanical Disneyland with over 2 miles of maintained graveled walking trails...A truly educational facility with over 700 plants botanically labeled. Try to allow at least 45 minutes to explore.We feature great views and photo opportunities but no direct access to the waterfall or pools.If you are only interested in restrooms (we now have improved facilities) You can do so for free 2 miles down the road.A portion of your entry fee is donated to the nature conservatory. The cost to keep our gate open averages $1,000/dy so we sincerely thank you for your support,,,especially those who have contributed beyond our entry fee. Most botanical gardens have teams of volunteers and use chemicals to curb costs. Our entire staff are well paid professionals, and we are almost entirely a chemical free park. Thank you for visiting, we do take your comments to heart

Beautiful and Peaceful Stop

It's a little pricey to go through here (can't remember the price, but I remember thinking.."really?!"). But it IS really beautiful inside.

This looked like an interesting stop on the Road to Hana, and fool that I am, encouraged my husband to drive on in despite some pretty obvious signs of off-handed neglect along the entry way. I didn't really expect the main drive to be paved, but something might have been done to take out the ruts and washouts. Their are... More

Must stop location on the road to Hana. The owner bought 35 acres in the 1990's and has carved out a tropical paradise with some incredible tropical plants. Stop by the gift shop which features local artists and a very good price point. Also have one of the Road to Hana ginger fruit drinks! Loved this place!

A great place to stop while on the road to Hana. The gardens are beautiful, along with spectacular overlooks and waterfalls. The grounds are well mapped for your exploration. Well worth the admission fee.

This was very worth the money along the Road to Hana. We loved this experience and it was a highlight of an already amazing experience. The Enchanted Forest and Bamboo Garden were stunning.

We needed a break from the curves, so puled up to the Garden of Eden. Yes, we thought OMG at the price only after the "ticket taker" told us our car was damaged . . . then offered duct tape . . . then the gardeners stopped to explain what to see for the day and how they care for... More

This place is not all that it is cracked up to be - and the $20/person entrance fee (or thereabouts) is absolutely insane. Avoid, avoid, avoid and keep on driving. This park literally had NOTHING noteworthy and we regretted instantly handing the front-gate guy our money. Just keep on driving!

Even though it seems a little pricey, it is worth it for all the the flora you experience while in there.

Small family-owned and operated garden. The garden trails are nice, and not too long to get around. Lots of curated species of plants, many they started from seed. This is a lovingly curated garden from the heart, I can tell. Peaceful and quiet. Nice, covered picnic tables with incredible views. We ate our picnic lunch here for our family of... More

My lady friend, her sister, and I (all 50+) visited this attraction as part of our visit to the western half of the Hana Highway area. We had already visited the Hana Highway several times over the past 13 years and were looking to change it up this time, try something different, and smell the roses a bit more---rather than...
