Superb botanical garden privately owned and nestled in beautiful mountainside of Mt. Haleakala. It is quite organized, with maps and lots of fun things to see with the family

I was actually pretty disappointed in this garden, in part because I had just come from visiting the beautiful Alii Lavender Farm (also in Kula). There just wasn't much to see here at all. Entrance fee here was also $10, compared to $3 at the Alii Lavendar Farm which has a huge variety of different and colorful plants and flowers... More

For a reasonable price (I think it was $12) you can visit this little garden. It was started by a couple and they built it themselves and planted everything. The flowers were growing. They had many proteas, orchids, fuchsia and more. They even had birds and reptiles. I would recommend if you like flowers and want a quick stop.

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.
