Both the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and the Na 'Aina Kai Botanical Gardens & Sculpture Park are non-profit organizations.  These are not paid advertisements.  Enjoy visiting all the beautiful gardens on Kauai!  Allerton Gardens requires a credit card to secure reservations and you must call them directly. It is highly recommended that you make your reservations for the gardens in advance of your arrival.  Direct phone numbers are listed below for your convenience.  Again, you may inquire directly for the most current rate information because they may not update me on their current offerings as list listings are free of charge to all businesses and information on Garden tours and rates are subject to change without notice.
When on Kauai, call (808) 245-3564 for a easy update from the National Weather Forecast at Lihue Airport

Aloha everyone ... I have been assisting visitors to the Garden Island since 1997. I want to let you know that I am finally beginning the process of semi retirement this year. You will begin finding direct links to our most trusted and respected Kauai Vendors along with enjoying the helpful free island information that you have grown accustom to. I will be happily caring for my twin grand daughters and will have more time for my other grand daughter who does not live on Kauai. Mahalo for your kind support and business all these years. Mahalo, Lilikoi

National Tropical Botanical Garden
Enter the gates of this once private estate and wind past cliff top views of a protected bay below. Stroll through outdoor "rooms," beside rippling pools and dramatic sculpture. Drink in the sights and sounds of fascinating plants, vibrant flowers and flowing water. See plants nearly extinct in the wild, thriving in the NTBG nursery.
