Rain Forest botanical paradise: the flowers and plants in this garden will take one's breath away, fantastic views from hill top looking out east over the Atlantic and the 'Scotland District of Barbados, benches for resting in secluded shady spots, the peace that one wishes, missing from one's work life is here. Worth more than money, relax and restore the soul...

For me coming from Trinidad I've seen a lot more exotic flower and fauna species, so it wasn't a wow experience!

We visited The Flower Forest last year and this year we happily fulfilled an ambition to take our friends - very keen and expert gardeners - there as well. They and we were not disappointed. The variety of plants and shrubs is stunning. Everything is beautifully maintained whilst keeping a natural look - the whole is a true labour of... More

As a plant lover I loved the plants, but would love to see more flowers but I enjoyed walking through the forest and the view was great.

Easy hike through beautiful forest with flowers galore. There are great mountain vistas and you can see the sea at one point. Didn't see any monkeys but the peacefulness was worth the admission. It was a relaxing hour seeing some flower species I had never seen before.

The Flower Forrest was very lush and there were so many unusual flowers, trees and plants. One of the lookouts looked over the East coast. They gave you some rum punch at the end and there was a few small gift shops and a place to sit and enjoy your punch.

Had a lovely walk through the forest and saw lots of flowers. The view to the coast is stunning. On the way out we didn't have enough time to get lunch so the lady who worked there gave us free coconut bread that she had just made.

Some magnificent plants to look at in the forest though paths/steps down in the forest were in places a little dangerous. Definitely need sensible shoes. Lovely café on site to refresh after you have walked the trail (they provide a map and details of plants growing in the forest). Enjoyed immensely.

Ginger flowers are some of my favorites and this large garden has tons of varieties. Most were blooming as we visited in summer. This was a special treat because we were shown around by owner, David Speiler, who is most gracious and also very knowledgeable although he modestly said his horticultural knowledge goes back only a few years. I was... More

Awesome place, all that palmtrees and that "jungle" atmosphere, everyone should go there when in Barbados.
