Breathtaking gardens set in an enormous sink hole with towering palm trees and a plethora of birds - more than I've seen anywhere else on the island. As a pianist, I also enjoyed the music but perhaps feel this detracts from the natural beauty and sounds of the place. It was wonderful to sit and chat with Anthony Hunte who... More

Breathtaking garden with a very welcoming host, Anthony Hunte. Exotic plants that some of us in colder climates TRY to grow indoors, thrive here with little effort. In zones where winter kills annual flowers, like Begonias, here they grow into giants! A sink hole provides interesting terrain and a unique setting. Make sure to indulge in a refreshment on Anthony's... More

I visited with my GF as we had seen the rave reviews on trip advisor, we are 22 by the way. The garden is nicely done but neither of us are plant lovers so left a little underwhelmed. This is not suited to anyone our age and I would only advise going if you are big in to gardening and... More

Visited as part of a tour in Jan 2015 off of a cruise. I love flowers and visiting gardens. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful. Wish we had more time to sit and relax. We got to meet Anthony who shared the story of how he started the gardens. Worth a stop while you are on the island.

What a beautiful garden filled with tropical wonders, birds, colours. Mr Hunte is so welcoming and his historical house is beautiful. A total must visit!

Wow what a hidden gem. Anthony the owner is delightful. A very personal service. It was magical walking through the extensive gardens to the music of Chopin. Our 2 year old son thought he was exploring a magical land. Relaxing on the veranda with the owner, his dog and a rum punch was the icing on the cake. A must... More

I visited Hunte's again today with my husband and two grown up daughters. It is such a magical place, so peaceful and really beautiful. Every time we visit something new has been added or enhanced to make these exquisite gardens even better. Anthony Hunte, together with Imran, his helper, work so hard to add new plants and keep the garden... More

Not massively into gardens and such, but walking round Anthony's gardens I found myself drawn to all the hard work and devotion he and his staff put into it. Just an amazing place to wander, sit and relax if you want, gaze at the wildlife or stroll through the nocks and crannies of the garden. Anthony is a great host... More

If you only visit one place in Barbados, make it Hunts Gardens, this is a truly beautiful place where the passion of Mr Hunte can clearly be seen. From the warm Bajan welcome to the beautiful music this garden is a must whether you are a gardener or not. Refreshments in the house after the visit are novel with the... More

My husband and I visited Hunte's Gardens today with my two teenage daughters while exploring Barbados. It was recommended to us by a couple we met on the beach and we were so glad we did this! We absolutely loved our visit! The Garden was absolutely breathtaking! The birds chirping overhead combined with the classical music created a beautiful ambiance!... More
