Our fourth trip to Barbados and we have always seen the signs to Hunte's Gardens but never followed them. Well today we righted that error! This is one of the most magical places we have been. A sink hole - from a collapsed cave - of about 2 acres transformed by Anthony Hunte's hard graft over two years into a... More

Hunte's Gardens has 90% of the same plants as Florida, but Barbados is so quiet. It must be the absence of the insects, the animals, birds, snakes. It's not that Barbados doesn't have birds, bees, but not in abundance. It does make the Gardens, relaxing.

The drive through the Barbados countryside does not prepare you for this...even as you get out of the car and approach the entrance...then suddenly like walking through a portal into a garden of lushness. There is a chair at the entrance and that is where Mr, Hunte sits, as he tries to welcome everyone. A very charming and gracious gentleman... More

We visited Hunte's Gardens in March whilst doing our own sightseeing tour of the island. We got there at 9am when it opened so were the first, and for most of our visit, the only people there, which was really great as it was so quiet and peaceful, and so very beautiful. We were greeted by Imran, he was really... More

Hunte's Gardens is such a lovely place! Quiet, relaxing... majestic! The soft music playing in the background as you become one with nature. Mr. Hunte is such a sweet guy as well. And don't forget that amazing rum punch!!! Looking forward to returning!

Rang the bell and Mr Hunt was there quickly to welcome us. He gave a short introduction to the garden and added that a baby hummingbird was in a nest on the trail and we got some great pictures of the baby being fed by its mother. There are many beautifully colored flowers and plants here and we enjoyed the... More

This place is amazing!! As soon as you arrive you can hear classical music and were greeted by Mr. Hunte, who is the owner. We were able to walk through the garden and sit and enjoy the different areas. It is really amazing what he did with the place! It can get pretty crowded there, so at some points we... More

From the moment you enter you can sense that this place is special. The personal welcome by the owner Anthony Hunte is warm and genuine, and his enthusiasm for his garden is infectious. Then you take a look down into the heaven he has created and your breath is taken away. You are assaulted with a range and combination of... More

A great place to go and visit. The host is welcoming and prepared to answer any questions. Set in a lovely location, with hummingbirds flying around. Worth the drive to get there.

We were met at the entrance by Anthony Hunte who made a point of speaking at length to everyone who visited. The gardens are wonderful and our sons (11 and 12) particularly enjoyed photographing the hummingbird that was feeding a chick on the nest. The sheer variety of plants was amazing and seating is carefully set out throughout the garden... More
