The gardens and grounds are amazing. The history is really cool, but the batik is the most amazing thing. The colors and skill in making this cloth are amazing. Each and every piece of cloth is a masterpiece. The only complaint is one of the shirts I bought I wore for the trip home and 2 buttons came off during... More

The gardens are beautiful, and we passed the remnants or a rum factory and a sugar cane operation on our way up to the gardens. There is also an overlook of the... More

Romney Manor is one of the places you can come to multiple times and still see something new. The grounds are amazing and the store is wonderful. A trip to St Kitts is not complete without a tour AND a purchase as well. We love the soap!

We visited the botanical gardens with an amazing experienced guide organised by our hotel. We were able to see a demonstration on site on batik painting on fabrics, quite an experience. It's amazing how much time and effort goes into this.

On our trip to St, Kitts & Nevis our taxi guide told us this was a MUST SEE. We toured the grounds and allowed the property to speak to us. With every turn there was a new site and smell. The flowers, plants, and people were just wonderful. The demonstration and shops for products was equally amazing. Make sure that... More

We took a taxi tour of the island when in port our cruise. This place was absolutely beautiful. The flowers and the photo ops were amazing. The grounds are kept immaculate. Everyone there is very friendly and eager to show you around the grounds

Our guide was nice enough to take us and it was closed. Fortunately for us he spoke with the grounds keeper and we were able to see the manor and it's gorgeous surroundings.

We visited the site as part of an island tour, the manor itself was not available for inspection at the time, but the grounds were spectacular. There was a splendid array of colourful flowers and shrubs within a rainforest, the lawned gardens were beautifully maintained and blended in with the surrounding foliage. The prime purpose of the site these days... More
