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..

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.

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

$10 per person was a small price to pay for what you got to see. There were garden orchids, bromides, palms, statues, a gazebo, trellis walls, a carved tiki exhibit, kangaroo paws plant from Australia, just to name a few of the sights. This place closes at 4:00, so get there in at least an hour before that (and that... More

The Botanical Garden was very pretty. It was a small place but we really enjoyed it. Seeing all of the flowers was great and it was a nice place to spend some time.

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
