This is a fairly small orperation.. it doesn't trully represent a plantation.. Gift shop a little priicey ( you will get better $ at Longs for most of the items) However, it does hold enough charm to stop in

This was a great garden to see. Unfortunately they are closed now and up for sale so its worth noting. They are located on the road to Ioa monument. Hopefully someone buys them and re opens them as they are quite good.

I've been to them all and this one has the best variety of plants and flowers. This is NOT the garden with the tram ride. This is a self guided tour on well defined trails and the price is nominal. Unfortunately, the gardens are closed and up for sale.

I love photography and wanted specific photos of flowers and plants. Having things labeled was a nice touch too. Ya there's mosquitos but you're in the tropics so don't whine about it and just wear bug dope. There were some sprinklers running that we dodged and the owner apologized after and said sorry and that he'd turn them off but... More

If you like tropical plants, this is a nice stop. If you are expecting to be entertained - don't stop. We liked the flowers but not the bugs!

Nice to visit if you have nothing else to do in Maui. Don't take the train tour, it's overpriced and you can see the same things if you walk the grounds.

We were disappointed with Kula Botanical Gardens, but wanted to see more tropical flora before we left Maui. For $5, this was a great stop. The signage is pretty good, and the path easy to follow. There was a great variety of plants, but do use bug spray before you go "into the wild" or you will end up with... More

We had lunch here then took the train around the property. Very enjoyable! There is also a zipline here that looked like a lot of fun.
