If you visit Welchmans Hall Gully in all its rawness and natural vegetation before you go to Hunte's Gardens, you will truly appreciate the work that Mr Hunte has put into achieving the beauty and tranquillity that is his own personal tropical garden paradise. Artistic creations of plants, statues and pots, changing every few paces. Take your time, sit and... More

If it’s details about the plants you’re after, then Hunte’s Gardens isn’t for you. Hunte’s Gardens isn’t about the detail, it’s about experiencing a unique garden that is a very personal take on what a tropical garden should be. It’s like being invited to a very special open garden day. If you have a look on a map of Barbados... More

A most amazing garden. We did not spend enough time there. Mr. Hunte was a most gracious host. I thought it was a bit overpriced, but we still had a great experience. Again be sure you take enough time to fully enjoy the gardens.

A really beautiful and peaceful place. The gardens are colorful and have chairs here and there to contemplate it from different spots whilst listening to classical music. It is a place to go for a walk with no rush and enjoy the scenery. There are a lot of signs on the road to guide you to the gardens. The entrance... More

Interesting tropical garden which has been created in a collapsed cave. This is not a big commercial outfit – you ring a bell and the owner of the house and garden, Mr Hunte, comes and greets you in person. Lots of nooks and crannies in the garden however if you are not a knowledgeable botanist or you don’t sit and... More

What a wonderful place to spend a showery day in Barbados. The gardens are full of mystery and wonder and the haunting piano just adds to the atmosphere. It is truly the work of a man with vision, passion and patience. We took a picnic and Mr Hunte was happy for us to find a delightful spot to while away... More

We travelled here from the nearby Welchmans Hall Gully on their recommendation and it did not disappoint. I for one am not a keen gardener or horticultural expert but the masterpiece the wonderful host, Anthony Hunte, has created is well worth a visit. After exploring the gardens created in a huge "sinkhole" with a fantastic array of flowers, plants and... More

Hunte's Gardens are truly special and well worth a visit. Anthony Hunte's lemonade and ginger drink was delicous and very welcome after our walk around the tree/plant/flower-filled gardens. There are lots of photo-opportunities for keen photographers.

i have just returned home from another visit to this beautiful garden. Since my last visit the garden has been extended and is even more majical than the last time I was there. If you are going to visit Barbados, this should not be missed. Thank you Hunte.
