A nice array of flowers and plants, but the gardens were not very well tended. It's hard to beat the beauty of Maui, but compared to the other gardens we visited, these rated the lowest for us. The $10 fee seemed high for the size of the gardens.

This piece of property has great potential for being really something. There are lots of very old trees and shrubs, and most of them are well labled. The garden pathways wander all around highlighting pretty areas and some with gazebos. However, when we were here, the garden needed a good tidying up. There were lots of dead leaves, branches and...

My sister and I went on a very hot day and because the gardens are in the interior it was 2 or 3 degrees cooler. The gardens are built on a steep incline. It is hard to walk uphill and if you had a wheelchair it is very difficult. Lots of variety in the flowers and various displays of gardens.... More

We decided to visit the Kula Botanical Garden. We have visited Maui for the last 30 years and never stopped here. I am so glad we did today. The variety of flowers, plants and trees is amazing. Around every corner is a new discovery! It was way beyond what we expected! It was a peaceful, tranquil stop to enjoy Maui... More

Based on great reviews of this garden on Tripadvisor, we decided to visit this place. The entry ticket was 10$. The first stop was a pond which was quite dirty. We continued further to the waterfall which was very tiny. We went forward, saw a couple of flowers and then to a orchid house. Orchid house was 6-7 pots of... More

We've been staying in Kula & after shopping in the morning on what's been a total washout of a day, I suggested this to my (botanically uninterested, generally) husband. As you can imagine, we were almost the only ones there considering the weather, but really enjoyed the experience even in pouring rain (adds another dimension!). Gratefully, the staff have umbrellas... More

We came to Maui with every intention to visit a garden, and settled on Kula. We found it a little tricky to get there, but were so pleasantly surprised with how lovely it was when we made it. Being at about 3000 ft, it was far cooler than we had been used to in Kihei, and it was a nice... More

A wonderful tropical garden, small but definitely worth the visit. A great education on the flora of the island. Gift shop is excellent as well.

This was hubby's idea. Being from Florida and living in Pennsylvania, from May through late September I plant flowers pots throughout my gardens and yard (60 pots) medium to large size. I am into color, flower and textures. Hubby is into succulents and Plumeria that he grew from seeds. What a spectacular place this was - it was great to... More
