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 « less

Granted we have been coming to Maui for a long time now, wanted to do something low key and different, so we decided to look intoGarden of Eden, once we got there, the entrance was really beautiful, lush gardens, very impressive, however, when we got to the lady holding a sign with the particulars of what would cost $15.00 pp,...

I paid US$ 15,00 per person and received a bad map. Being honest the place is beautiful, but don't worth the money they charge. You will find places much more beautiful paying less for instance Iao Valley. Chemical restrooms hadn't light inside. Totally disappointed!

When driving the road to Hana this is worth a little detour. 15 Bucks a person, but such an amazing little gem if you are into the plant life on Hawaii. A really nice self guided tour around the property gives some great opportunities for pictures and there is a quaint little art shop that is worth stopping in at.

This is a stop that you must make on the road to Hana, You will be able to see so many beautiful plants and flowers along with the painted trees. It is not all that well marked from the road - so I would recommend that you purchase the Road to Hanna Cd and Dvd combo which comes with a... More

We stopped here on the Road to Hana as my guidebook recommended it even though it agreed it was pricey ($15 per person). It is a very beautiful garden for sure but i'm not sure if I'd bother doing it again. Part of the problem was that it was a stupidly hot day, had it been cooler I might have... More

As a gardener myself, I love visiting gardens wherever I travel. Living in Hawaii the past 8 years, I’m always looking for inspiration. It’s obvious that a lot of work goes into maintaining the Garden of Eden as the trails are in much better shape than most public trails. The views are spectacular, but to pay for them when they...

We stopped in on our Road to Hana trip and were glad we did. There are some great walking paths, some excellent views of the coastline, and some very friendly ducks and peacocks that you can feed on your way in. The property is well maintained and had a bathroom in case you need to stop. There are some great... More

The 26 acre grounds and walking paths are beautifully maintained and there are some surprise attractions, such as the friendly ducks, gray goose, and not too shy peacocks. While the ocean and waterfall views are not as spectacular as ones you see naturally on the road to Hana, the arboretum is a quiet, peaceful place to visit. It's true you... More

We stopped at the Garden of Eden based off a recommendation from my brother. We were not disappointed. After reading the "Not So Great" reviews on here, I can't see where any of them are justified. The grounds were very clean, offered amenities that were clean. Amazing views and walking paths. We spend about two hours there exploring and took... More

Don't waste your time and money stopping here. The fee is $15 a person, way too much for the distant waterfall views you'll see stomping around the grounds. The forests and flowers here are nothing compared to the ones you can see just a little bit further off, or in some of the parks at the end of the Road... More
