The University of Hawai’i Lyon Arboretum and Botanical Garden is the only university botanical garden located in a tropical rainforest in the United States as well as the only easily accessible tropical rainforest on the island of O'ahu. The arboretum consists of almost 200 acres at the top of the Manoa watershed with a set of small cottages and greenhouses used for research and community education about plants and the natural environments of Hawai'i. What about yoga? Try Iyengar Yoga in the Manoa Markplace.

Manoa Valley Inn is literally one block from the University of Hawaii. We host many students, parents, visiting professors and others directly or indirectly related to U.H. We have put together a list of links to U.H. related information that hopefully you'll find helpful!
