A stunning garden with the happiest plants I have ever seen. Anthony is a wonderful host. His relaxed manner and botanical knowledge makes the visit welcoming and informative. The overall view is colourful, dramatic, breathtakingly beautiful and enhanced by classical music seemingly coming from nowhere. Not to be missed.

Anthony Hunte has billed his self-made masterpiece of a garden as 'The Most Enchanted Place on Earth' and the gentleman could well be right. A colossal undertaking for one man and a few helpers, Mr Hunte has transformed this sink hole and once tip into one of the most beautiful, tranquil gardens you will ever have the good fortune to...

We arrived at this wonderful and unique garden as it opened on Sunday morning and enjoyed it all to ourselves. Greeted at the entrance by Mr Hunte himself we were asked if we would prefer to leave the sounds of the morning to the birds or to soft classical music? We opted for the former and then spent a memorable... More

Lovely garden set into a gorge. Tons of plants tucked into this tiny place. Beautiful sitting areas set into nooks and crannies of the garden. Some plants seem to have been forgotten and would have liked to see plant identify makers.

A very warm welcome from the minute we arrived at the gates to these wonderful gardens. It was an experience to see such a stunning mix of plants, flowers, trees, ornaments and man made features in a rugged natural setting. To wander and sit amongst such beautiful surroundings was a true pleasure not forgetting the calming background music. We highly... More

This is without doubt the loveliest garden I have ever visited. From the first steps the magic and peace of the place washed away any memories of the journey there and I was transported! Spent several hours there, sitting in some of the strategically placed chairs just watching the lizards and humming birds and soaking up the atmosphere to the... More

Visited Hunte's Gardens with husband and ten year old daughter after we had enjoyed a bit too much sun. A lovely shady escape from the sun. Anthony Hunte was a lovely man who greeted us with iced water and lemonade and gave advice on places to eat and see on the island. A very magical place and worth a visit.

Our hotel offered a complimentary tour to Hunte's Gardens and we are really glad they did. We arrived, to be welcomed by Anthony Hunte, who, with his small team, have worked hard to build this garden over the last two years, and as he said himself he is 'looking at what needs to be done next', so it's not finished...

The garden is absolutely stunning. Although the island was very dry it's obvious the garden is well taken care of... Mr. Hunte was very nice and kid friendly. I seen some plants and flowers I've never seem and he was able to educate us on them. The garden was brilliant and I recommend the visit... I would like to go... More
