Cool and Peaceful

Wonderful array of tropical plants in very eclectic pots, tea cups, musical instruments. The maze was smaller than expected but you can still get your zen on with it.

We had stumbled here after missing a turn and I'm so glad we did. If I lived here I would be here often. The flowers are pretty and there's an eclectic feel. I really enjoyed seeing the labyrinths and learning a little about them.

Went here for the labyrinth...not what I was expecting, but maybe because I don't know a good labyrinth when I see it. I may need to be better connected with my spiritually too. Meditation room, free tea, books to read, nooks to chill in, stuff to buy and a LARGE Buddha I would love in my yard!

There are a couple of labyrinth's to walk. You can buy a cup of tea and other snacks and just sit and relax ... which is why you... More

The Sacred Garden affords you with many options to go within, meditate or simply have quiet time within a beautiful surrounding in Maui. The unguided journey includes a labyrinth, quiet spaces for healing, a place for balance and many interesting areas to discover. Worth it.

Wonderful labyrinths and plants. It makes a great stop in the middle of the day to restore personal calm. Don't be fooled by the price tag (free); spending time here is a real lift. It has a number of labyrinths, and the staff can provide quick instructions on how to walk the labyrinths for personal fulfillment. Even my engineer husband... More

The location is pretty in the hills above Paia. There are two labyrinths surrounded by thick jungle & a murky stream. I walked both but beware : I got eaten up by mosquitos or some other biting insect. I'm talking huge bites! The garden area is strange: random things set on rows of tables- not sure what that's about. The... More
