If you ever want to be in the bosom of Paradise this is the place to visit. Even people who are not normally drawn to gardens MUST visit this utterly magical place. It unexpectedly turned out to be the Highlight of our Cruise/visit to Barbados.

A beautiful, peaceful place to while away a couple of hours. Get yourself a rum punch or a lemonade with ginger, find yourself one of the secluded spots and relax whilst listening to piano concertos playing quietly in the background. Not sure I would take children or anyone with mobility difficulties though.

Hunte's Gardens was one of the highlights of our Caribbean cruise this Christmas. We only booked the trip (along with Orchid World, which was also worth a visit) because we arrived at Bridgetown on New Years Day and knew that a lot of places would be closed - but oh boy were we glad we did! The gardens are not... More

This is the most magical, special place. An absolute must see. For me, it was worth coming to Barbados to see this. I was blown away by these luxuriously sensuous gardens. Really fantastic.

Every year when we come to Barbados we come to Hunte's Gardens not only to catch up with Anthony and his team but to see the changes which are many, new areas have been created, plenty of seats to sit and look as well as listen to Classical music that plays all around the gardens. Even if you do not... More

If you like gardens then you really must visit this one and if you don't like gardens it's still worth a visit. The garden is the work of Anthony Hunte who generally meets all visitors personally and who clearly has a passion for gardening with the result that he has created a wonderful varied and colourful garden in this collapsed...

We were blown away by the glamour and beauty of this garden. We visited several whilst in Barbados but this stood out to us as being the best, certainly in January when there are fewer flowers in bloom so foliage plants come into their own. If you are lucky enough to meet Mr Hunte himself then you are in for... More

The arrangement of small intimate gardens within a larger garden was a joy to experience. Mr Hunte was a gracious & fun host. The rum is good also. Thanks for a great visit. Ralph & Laura

Anthony has spent years creating the most spectacular collection of tropicals we have ever seen! He is quite entertaining and very willing to answer questions. If the stones are wet, watch tour step. Don't miss trying his aged rum, and have lunch at Virma's nearby - lamb stew and beer for 7.50 USD!

This garden is a hidden gem set down in a gulley and packed with horticultural interest, with delightful seating areas giving both grand and intimate vistas, don't miss the chance to see Anthony Hunte's house and sample some refreshment.
