We have been to Kula Gardens each time we visited Maui. It is located upcountry in Kula, a beautiful little town where it is cooler than in the valley. We have always enjoyed the gardens here, especially noting the protea pincushion plants as well as a section at the far end of orchids. There are quite a few varieties of... More

The Kula Botanical Garden was the perfect place to visit when it was 30C at sea level as the temperature drops by 3 degrees for every 1000 feet of elevation. It was the perfect temperature in which to enjoy the gardens. We started in the gift shop where we paid a $10 admission for each of us. Some might think... More

Different varieties of lavender plants. Plan to be walking over uneven terrain. Otherwise, cool idea for kids!

Beautiful collection of tropical and botanical plants and trees. Not much shade nor many places to sit, so be prepared to walk on smooth paths and see some pretty astounding flora. You have to LOVE plants/flowers/trees (why else would you be here?) to get the most out of this lovely place.

Nice collection of flowers, plants and trees that you can see scattered all over the island. It's a bit of s drive and it takes only an hour to see what it has to offer. Nice break from the beach scene.

We were greeted very warmly and had our picnic lunch on their deck. Easy to follow the path and it was nice to see how many plants were marked with their names.

My daughter and I had a most enjoyable time here on our self guided walk. There was something at each turn to grab our attention. We appreciated the natural setting as opposed to the overly manicured. If you like trees, plants, flowers, and gardens in general, you will appreciate this place.

Around every turn is a flower more beautiful than the one you see.. We really enjoyed this garden. We are plant lovers, so we may be bias..

Even though I hate growing flowers myself and absolutely do not garden I thought this was something my husband, the gardener, would enjoy. He didn't want to go but I insisted--and we were both glad we went. We spent an enjoyable hour or so wandering around the paths and looking at all of the plants and trees. It's a beautiful,... More
