Owner description: 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

If you like flowers, trees, and Mother Earth, then Maui Garden of Eden is for you! There were so many different types of plants, it was amazing. It was all beautiful. We loved it!

we drove into garden of eden looking for a bathroom to use. when we pulled up to the attendant and asked if we could just use the bathroom....they said that they would need to charge us the full $15 admission fee (which covers the self guided tour of the grounds, etc). being that we were a party of 5, we...

Stopped on our Road to Hana trip to enjoy our sandwiches and the fauna. Husband and I enjoyed walking thru the gardens and finding all the hidden treasures- like the bees up in the pal said, the little tropical spider nests, all the fruit growing on trees, etc.

We stopped for a break on the Highway to Hana and the grounds are certainly lovely, but for $40 - 2 adults and 2 kids - it seemed a bit steep. It was a nice walk with some great views but we probably wouldn't recommend it as a "must-see" in Maui.

The price of admission is a little high at $15 per person but I really wanted to see the painted trees. They are absolutely gorgeous! The gardens are beautiful but not sure it was worth the price of admission.

Many reviewers thought that this beautiful garden was not money's worth (only $15/person). I would have paid $25 gladly. The great thing about this place is that it is beautifully maintained, and has several striking views, including the ocean, and famous water falls. The trails are well marked and fun to walk around. There are so many exotic plants that... More

At $15 a person it isn't cheap but there is allot to see. The grounds are kept very nicely and you get some great views of the area. There are also 2 waterfalls that are very nice to see. If they dropped price to $15 a car it would be much better to recommend.

It was nice botanical garden with some nice outlooks, but totally not worth it for $15/person. We spent maybe an hour there, but didn't find it that interesting. It might be a good area to picnic and have lunch, but other than that it was a waste of time. We stopped by here because the GPS guide were using for... More

If you are interested in the plants of the area, this is the place to go! Many varieties on a nice path (not ADA) with markers which not only describe what you are seeing but also includes good information. There are cute ducks, beautiful peacocks, a small art gallery exhibiting local artists, and amazing views with plenty of benches/tables to... More
