This smallish tropical garden has two parts - orchids and succulents. When we were there the orchid area near the main plantation house was blooming and well maintained. The somewhat larger succulent and cacti garden just down the hill was quite overgrown and poorly maintained....More

My wife just had two total knee replacements, so we appreciated the concrete sidewalks and easy terrain. We appreciated all the tropical flowers there and it took about 20 minutes to see.

This garden is located at the Kiahuna Plantation resort is worth a visit - a great selection of cacti and orchids is this garden. It was unseasonably rainy when we visited and the cacti were a bit soggy but still worth checking out this collection!

There was no charge for this, but it was not that big and mostly cactus. Close to where we were staying at the Hyatt so nice for a short drive and time in between our other activities on the island

It is across from the Sheraton on Poipu Beach. If you go in the back entrance, there is a parking area. I don't remember seeing signs about the gardens from the back area, but there is possibly a sign that says Plantation... More
