I had high hopes on this one because it sits on top of a beautiful location as well as the $10 fee to visit. Unfortunately the place is a let down. It is in disrepair and in bad condition. Plants are not well maintaned. Lots of dried out/wilted leaves everywhere. Theres even a palm tree that had its wilted leaves... More

This is a must stop in upcountry Maui. So many varieties of trees and flowers along the walkways. Great natural settings. Give yourself lots of time to relax in this setting. Well worth the $10 admission.

Great place to learn about the trees and flowers. They give you a map so you can do a private walking tour. The coy fish in their pond were huge. Have not seen any so big. They had a couple Nene birds which are protected birds. We purchased some pineapple coconut macaroons...they were so flavorful and moist. The best we... More

trying to fight bad weather in maui, we went to the botanical gardens on a rainy afternoon. It is beautiful and peaceful and very interesting to see such a broad range of species from around the globe. They offered sweaters and umbrellas to all who made the trip up - much appreciated! Would love to see it in the sunshine!... More

It seems like a very small operation without much staff. It's fairly cluttered with too many things not marked. Maybe it's supposed to be more "native". We have visited other gardens on other islands and they were a bit more relaxing. Not too many visitors when we were there

Whenever we're in Maui we always make the time to visit this quaint little garden. There is always some exotic flower in bloom which makes it a photographer's paradise. The setting is very peaceful. Each time we go we see something different.

We stopped here on a whim as we were driving in the area. It does not compare well with the other one we visit item in the island but we had a nice stroll, enjoyed the blooms and Nenes which they have in a conservation area. The hand drawn map was a but heard to follow. I would not rush... More

Every few years we make it a point to visit Kula Botanical Garden to what's blooming. There's always something blooming. What would make it better would be if more things were blooming at any one time, but there's not much you can do about blooming times. I particularly like the proteas. Orchids were blooming this visit & they were lovely.... More

This place was designed to have something blooming all of the year. It delivers on this promise. The specimens planted here are indeed exotic and wonderful. The place is well maintained in a natural way. The "Kula Cloud" keeps the place a little shelter from the sun and heat. My only two suggestions would be to add much more signage... More

We go up to the Kula garden every year, and it is never exactly the same--different flowers are in bloom...or maybe we just notice new things on each visit. Be sure to follow every trail to its end, where you might discover an aviary with cooing doves and lovebirds or a quiet bench by a waterfall. An added bonus is... More
