Our concierge at the Sheraton recommended coming here, so glad we did. It’s a great value for $10, you could spend hours here and take hundreds of pictures. Peace and tranquility, a pet parrot, great vibe, the gardens are serene and superb! Highly recommend
My husband and I visited the Peleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary on September 11,2018, we both enjoy viewing native plant species at botanical gardens and usually make a point of trying to visit one everywhere we go. Please understand we are not plant experts, just like...More
My wife and I recently visited Paleaku and very much enjoyed the experience. The grounds are lovely and the flora and the artifacts are pretty striking. Most of all, it is, as described, something of a sanctuary. It is a great place to walk through...More

A truly unique attraction. Beautiful gardens and interesting features. We are birders and the quiet and largely undisturbed location attract birds that will not always be seen in urban or semi-urban areas. Birds we saw on this property include the Kalij Pheasant, the African silverbill...More
All the other reviews about how peaceful and beautiful the place is are correct, but for the nerdy geek in me, the highlight was the more or less to scale galaxy garden (as I recall, Carl Sagan had something to do with setting it up)...More
