Hilo, HI View map

About

Located 3 miles from Hilo on the magnificent Big Island of Hawaii, Nani Mau Gardens showcases 22 acres of gorgeous tropical flowers and plants. "Nani Mau" which translates as "forever beautiful" in Hawaiian is a perfect name for this beautiful garden that first opened to the public in 1972. Featuring 20 acres of artistically landscaped displays of native and exotic tropical flowers and plants, a spectacular orchid garden, rare palms and tropical fruit orchards, a visit to Nani Mau is a favorite of both visitors and residents alike.

    Neal, the mgr at Nani Mau, provided great customer service with a smile. As an establishment Nani Mau offers great food and a beautiful natural venue for a reasonable price that's completely worth it.

    I grew up going to events at Nani Mau and loved what they are doing to the place. They were very accomidating and answered every question without hesitation. The setting was beautiful and the food was amazing. Our family and friends had a wonderful time and we're very happy we went with Nani Mau.

    Our out of town guests loved the exotic botanical gardens. Planning wasn't easy but it worked out great.
