Lonely Planet review

If cacti are your fancy, Moir Gardens offers a modest oasis on the grounds of the Kiahuna Plantation condo. It's a low-key, approachable collection of mature cacti and succulents, interspersed with winding paths, a lily pond and colorful shocks of orchids.

The gardens, established in the 1930s and now part of the Kiahuna Plantation resort, were originally the estate of Hector Moir, manager of Koloa Sugar Plantation, and Alexandra 'Sandie' Knudsen Moir. The Moirs were once avid gardeners who switched from tropical flowering plants to drought-tolerant ones before it became trendy.

A sideshow rather than a showstopper, it's a sweet garden worth a stroll if you're staying nearby or dining at the restaurant - or if you're keen on desert flora.
