We found this on the map and decided to go there on a day that was threatening rain. The entrance had easy parking and we were welcomed enthusiastically. This is a family owned and run garden. My mother is a bit challenged in walking but we had no trouble at all walking on the paved walkways and minimal inclines. We... More

This was a priced right garden. It was small in comparison to other gardens I have been to. There was a good variety of trees and flowering plants. It doesn't take long to go through this garden so if you have other things to do in the area you would have time. It had a koi pond and other features... More

Many varieties of flowers/plants/trees from all over the world. Very easy to navigate and koi pond and trickling waterfalls created a very peaceful experience. Upon leaving, we learned that the Kula Botanical Garden is privately held and does not receive any subsidies from the state. This is a must-see because not only will you enjoy yourself, but you will help... More

We stopped here after watching the sunrise. It is a well kept family run garden. It took us about an hour to walk through it all. Great variety of flowers, birds, fish and even a chameleon. Cost was $10, we felt that it was totally worth it.

The Garden was very nice, but the visit is really less than an hour and it is kind of pricey. The plantings are lush and categorized well by country. The air is incredibly fresh and there are some interesting birds along the way. It was a good walk in the woods.

I'm not a one that enjoys these types of attractions, but I did enjoy and found the gardens to be very informative. Alot of the trees and shrubs were identified and their origin. It was a nice stroll in a tropical forest and well worth the $10 admission fee.

Saw this in one of the drive guides and thought we would give it a try. It was a delightful, beautiful, peaceful well laid out gardens. We saw exotic unusual plants and flowers. It is such an amazing setting. I would go back on another trip to Maui! Well worth the entrance fee. We had packed a lunch and were... More

I have been to Maui many times, up to the crater, all around the island, and numerous beaches, but for some reason have missed seeing this garden. It's off the gorgeous Kula Highway in the lush, cooler up country of Maui. If you ever tire of the beaches or crowds, and have any interest in plants, shrubs and vegetation from... More

Kula is beautiful. We have been to Maui 3 times now and have always enjoyed Makawao but seemed to have by-passed Kula. We made a point of visiting Kula this trip and exploring the Botanical Gardens before having lunch at the Kula Bistro (see other review). Only 30 minutes from Kihei and you're a world away. The Botanical Gardens are... More

3 adults, 2 kids and only $26.00. Beautiful gardens and a great break from the heat of the beaches. This was number one stop requested by our kids on our return trip. We will always come here. Love this place
