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

This was the last activity we did on the road to Hana, and that might be why my review is not that good (I mean, we had just seen the 400ft Waterfall at the O'heo Gulch ... everything else seemed blah after that lol). The garden was nice but not sure worth the price ... if you're really into gardening... More

Saw many different plant species. Great walk about and place to stretch the legs after driving from Wailea. There is also a view of the falls. Fun place for any amateur photographer.

WE pulled in here by chance on the way to Hana,while at first we thought bit a little pricey after spending a few hours here plus a lunch stop we felt it well worth it and it made a nice stop away from the Hana traffic to walk the grounds and enjoy the excellent sea and waterfall views which you...

15$ a person but if you don't have time or the patience to go all the way to Hana, stop here! Beautiful gardens, nice walks and great views!

Stopped here on our way to Hana. Beautiful gardens. Found it to be a bit pricey but realize that keeping this place pristine is not cheap. If you are into gardening and plants this is the place for you.

I've lived on Maui for over 10 years and lets face it, you have to work a lot to live in paradise. I love that the Garden Of Eden is half the distance to Hana and I can feel at peace in this beautiful paradise. Its $15 per person which to some may seam high but I assure you it... More

The price is now $15/person. I believe it use to be per car load. I liked that there is designated trails for walking that are well marked with the plant species. We saw some truly amazingly beautiful trees and plants. The waterfall views were priceless. The ducks in the middle of the road, would not move for traffic. I am... More

If you don't want to get out of your car nor leave your fancy overpriced poolside cocktail you are best served to stay at your resort and not leave until catching your flight back home. If you actually want to see some of the real Maui this is an awesome place! There are so many different plants and trees. At... More

On the way to Hana we decided to stop into the Garden of Eden. This is an overpriced tourist trap. It is rundown and they make no attempt to "hide" some of the sheds, etc. that one assumes are necessary for maintaining the garden. You are paying to walk on trails to see vistas that you can see for free... More

We stumbled on these gardens on our way to Hana. Because it is privately owned and they provide access to the public they need help by charging an admission that helps maintain the property. The project began in 1991, opened in 1996 and received recognition from the state for its conservation practices, proper land use and development techniques. The gardens... More
