We were not expecting to find such a delightful oasis in the middle of paradise. This beautiful garden was created in a deep gully and you feel as though you have stepped into another world. We took a picnic along and happily settled into one of the many quiet corners to enjoy our lunch in serenity. Would highly recommend.

The whole experience is overwhelming. Without giving too much away (because part of the fun is discovering it), it sounds as beautiful as it looks. Walking through the garden, listening to the wildlife, the background music, the gentle rain - we took refuge under a huge leaf! If you allow yourself to take your time and wander quietly, just taking... More

This little spot is absolutely beautiful. If you enjoy gardening, plants, or want an hour of enchantment with stunning scenery go and visit this delightful garden. Mr Hunte was on hand to explain its creation and how it all came about. Be warned there are steps as the garden has been created in an old sink hole giving the garden... More

I could have spent hour and hours here. The owner was the perfect host balancing information, good manners, allowing us freedom to roam alone in the peace and tranquility. The hospitality and friendliness was amazing. This is a bargain at the price. The gardens are mesmerising and the little 'rooms' are magical. We even saw a humming bird, it's nest... More

We didn't get a chance to meet the famous Mr Hunte, but we were cared for like real house guests in the actual house that he lives in; of which is partly open to the public. His Guyanese assistant was more than helpful and treated us to 10 year old rum and cool water. The house rum was so good... More

Hunte's Garden is what the Garden of Eden would look like. I was fortunate to celebrate my birthday there and I was in childlike wonder to this fantastic garden. The best time to go is first thing in the morning to experience the tranquil nature of the day. Don't forget to see the humming bird nest's in a palm tree.... More

My wife, granddaughter and I visited Hunte's Garden while in Barbados! It was amazing and almost surreal - it had a Alice in Wonderland feel about it. We also saw a hummingbird nest with two babies... At the end we met Anthony Hunter who owns and created the garden as a retirement project, if only we were all so inspired.... More

Words hardly do this place justice. It is awesome. Top tip bring a picnic. There are little seating areas all about so make the most of it!

The gardens themselves are, even though on an acre, very pretty. However, if, like myself, you make your own way in the world, the line of guidance and intrusion is a fine one and for me the owner was the wrong side. Three in our party felt uncomfortable and felt the owner was intrusive on their personal space. Being kind,... More
