Great place to visit for a nice cool walk around plants and flowers. Lots of chickens and ducks wandering around. The restaurant was closed for renovations when we were there (Jan 17/2015) but they had a small snack café and it was great and well priced. Had a delicious grilled turkey pannini and my wife had some great coconut curry... More

When we got there very few cars were in parking lot, not hard to figure out why. Was clean place but just past its time, even gift shop was average, nothing unique to go out of the way to see, I think was the only think we went to I felt was disappointing. I hate to be negative but if... More

We stopped here with our 2 kids (5 and 8 yrs) on a late cloudy afternoon. Place is a bit "touristy" but it's free to walk around. There are gardens, a general store, a zip line attraction, soap store, and other shops. Everyone here was super friendly. Zip line guys had had a giant bunch of apple banannas that they... More

This is a nice place to stop on the island of Maui. They have a nice little shop where you can buy gifts and shirts. They also have a train that takes you through the plantation and provides information on the foliage. There is a restaurant but it was closed during our visit. When trying to get directions we were... More

I remembered going to this place 25 yrs ago and came back with my family. It did not disappoint. The setting is just exquisite. Beautifully landscaped. Serene. I wish we'd got married here! The store is beautifully stocked and not overly pricey. One disappointment - the tram ride around the plantation, which I had really find memories of was pretty... More

We rode on a tram and got to see the flowers, plants, bushes, and crops of Maui. We saw a coconut husked, learned about the flowers, i.e., hibiscus, bougainvillea and many other herbs and plants. You could even take cuttings with you that were allowed to leave the state. Our guide was knowledgeable and answered questions aside from her planned... More

We were there during a special celebration taking place on the grounds that included seeing various age women and girls doing the hula,local foods,crafts and activities. Special treat was listening to "Hapa" a wonderful and talented musical group. Apparently, this event will happen once per year and this was the first year. Enjoyed seeing the beautiful paintings and prints for... More

There is a tram ride for 16$ which I felt is too pricey to see some plants, flowers . The driver stopped at a few places to give us photo ops and stopped at a place to show us how to open a coconut. Once the tour is over, you can walk around by yourself and the views/walks are great... More

This is a nice & relaxing place to go with children. There are various, shops, and restaurants set around a water feature on this working plantation. Even though there is no entry fee for the plantation and you can do a self guided tour, it's a great idea to pay for the tram tour. On this ride, a guide talks... More
