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 gardens, and worth the stop even if you don't want to pay the $15 fee and go in. There is a beautiful photo op with Eucalyptus tree at entry. And a roadside stand run by "Mr. Just Fantastic" is worth the stop. Our favorite personality on the R2H. He cut open coconuts for the kids, made straws out of... More

What a lovely spot! This is a well kept garden of tropical plants, flowers, and trees from Hawaii and The South Pacific. As my husband and I strolled the paths, we were delighted by the sight of the ocean in the distance and a whole garden of anthurium. An especially friendly groundskeeper, Michael, pointed out some of the edible fruits... More

So Many tropical plants and manageable small hills throughout. There was a surprise around every corner. No extra charge for a greeting from the friendly resident cat. Reading the scrapbook of how the garden started was fascinating. Very laid back and u crowded. Perfect place to cool off and explore at your own pace. One of my favorites stops on... More

The Gardens were very nice, well maintained with a lovely rocky stream gurgling through the middle. The shaded paths made a pleasant walk. We saw a few species we hadn't known existed. I would have liked a few more placards for information.

It is a "recommended" stop on the Road to Hana, but comes with a steep admission fee of $15 per Adult. Twin Falls is also private, but does not charge admission though their Farm Stand does a brisk business, but does not average $15 per Adult. The Garden of Eden has gorgeous well maintained grounds and a couple of proprietary... More

Beautiful gardens and very well maintained. It's a bit of a drive on winding Hana Highway but worth the effort to get there. Gorgeous views of waterfalls and the ocean. Many different areas to visit including 100 year old Mango tree, banana grove, bamboo trees and lots of beautiful flowers. Plants are labeled with information about them. A nice place... More

Just like the premise of the road to Hana is not the destination, it is the getting there--taking the time to stop at this treasure is so worth it. Don't expect to run in, fly thru it and leave. Please allow time to soak in the natural beauty of the place. Unlike any other place with such exotic plants, flowers... More

People who like this nature park is highly recommended. You can admire many species. Excellent location for a picnic. The view of the waterfall is worth the visit even more interesting. But.....if you do not like these things, do not waste time and money here.
