Fodor's Review

The name, which means "to make a place of peace and tranquillity," describes the serenity and feeling of endless space you find in this verdant garden framed by the stunning Koolau mountain range. Inside its 400 acres are plant collections from such tropical areas as the Americas, Africa, Melanesia, the Philippines, and Hawaii. Guided nature tours are offered by reservation on Saturdays at 10 and Sundays at 1. Not just for the botanist, Hoomaluhia also has a 32-acre lake and open lawns ideal for picnicking and camping by permit.
