A Taste Of Our Gardens

Hidden away in the jungle valleys of Princeville on Kauai’s North Shore, dramatic topography, natural landscaping, and tender cultivation have culminated into a sacred garden paradise. Though still young, Princeville Botanical Gardens is home to some of the healthiest specimens on Kauai, with a diverse collection comparable to the other beautiful gardens of the Garden Island. Besides native and “canoe” plants, the gardens are home to potent medicinals, rare and endangered flowers, and useful economic plants from around the world.

 

Explore Our Gardens

Princeville Botanical Gardens is proud to make and share their own organic chocolate, as well as delicious honey from on-site beehives. You can taste these treats and explore the rest of the gardens on a private guided tour offered three days a week. For a taste of the gardens before you visit, check out Lucy’s beautiful collection of photos with her own story of the garden’s development. Also, if you’re a real garden enthusiast, follow our blog for up-to-date pictures of blooms and our chocolate processing.

Fantastic Garden!

I went to three major gardens on Kauai, and this was the smallest by far, but was also the best! Princeville Botanical Gardens is definitely a must see when in Kauai. Small but mighty, it has lots to see and even a chocolate lecture. The guide Brad is a fountain of knowledge and a real asset to the gardens. You will learn cool things and see amazing plants in an amazing little garden that started out as someone's yard! Really like it! Next trip I will visit this again.

A Perfect 'Garden Island' Setting

Lost in a residential area, this 9-acre natural garden is a nice change from the more touristy venues. Beautiful landscaping and a guide with solid knowledge of plant origins (well done, Donna). My wife said this was her favorite part of our week in Kauai. The garden is located in the middle of a private residential area with no signage and once you are there, you'll know why you came.

Fascinating Tour With Chocolate Sampling!

This three-hour tour of the grounds of a private formal garden was worth every penny. The guides are volunteers, who are very knowledgable and interact charmingly with visitors. We learned about many local and foreign plants and at several points we stopped to sample local fruit and honey, all grown on the premises. We also learned about different kinds of chocolate and tested our taste buds' sensitivity to the various flavors.

Must See In Kauai

Beautiful garden! This is a must see if you are visiting Kauai! When you first arrive, the garden does not seem like much due to its size, but with the guided tour you really see the beauty of the garden! The staff members are so kind and knowledgeable. You get to learn a lot about Kauai and the plants that are found in the garden. And don't forget about the amazing chocolate tasting in the middle of the tour! I recommend this garden to everyone!
