Kauai Botanical Gardens

Aloha from Kauai!

The island of Kauai still has a number of travel quarantines for those coming to the island of Kauai. With these travel quarantines in effect, our family’s river tours, gardens and garden luau will temporarily close until further notice. As there is no end date for the quarantine stated in the emergency rule, we are unable to predict a reopening date for our family’s visitor attractions and activities at this time.

If you already have reservations for our family’s river tour or luau, we will be contacting you to reschedule or cancel your reservation. All cancellations are fully refundable. If you purchased your reservation through a third party, please contact the agency to receive your refund.

Mahalo for trying to visit Kauai. We hope that you consider visiting us when it is safer for travel.

A Tropical Oasis in the Heart of Wailua
Smith’s Tropical Paradise in the Wailua River Valley

Smith's Tropical ParadiseThis lush 30-acre botanical and cultural garden provides an idyllic escape to enjoy Mother Nature’s creations. The garden is centrally located on the east side of Kauai, known as “The Coconut Coast,” within the Wailua Marina State Park. Only minutes from the main highway, but far removed from traffic noise, this beautiful location is perfect for an afternoon picnic or garden stroll, and is home to Kauai’s most popular luau.

Take your time and wander over a mile of meandering pathways surrounded by tropical splendor. You’ll explore the quiet, serene atmosphere of this paradise where peacocks and many other birds thrive in the lush surroundings.

View over twenty types of fruit in the Tropical Orchard including breadfruit, star fruit, jackfruit, macadamia nuts and soursop. Wander the Bamboo and Fruit forests or enjoy the colorful attraction of the Flower Wheel and Flowering Tropicals areas. Set amidst this natural backdrop are replicas of Polynesian and Filipino huts. The Japanese-themed garden island is a popular location for those who choose to get married in the gardens.

Whether you spend a quiet afternoon enjoying the scenery, or a quick look around before experiencing the Smith Family Garden Luau, you’re sure to remember your time in paradise!
