We stopped here while on a best of the island tour. It was a beautiful site - lush rain forest and batik. We didn't get to explore every inch because we were only there for 30 minutes.

Very well kept grounds and gardens. Nice breezes give a break from the summer heat. Beautiful place.

Loved the beautiful grounds of Romny Manor, they own Caribelle Batik that is located on the grounds and if this is a stop during a day trip around St. Kitts it is definitely worth seeing just for the sheer beauty of the grounds. For nature photographers you will enjoy snapping photos here and the view is amazing.

It is beautiful with a lot of lush greenery and flowers. We had to wait in the tour bus until the rain stopped and then the humidity kicked in....we were in the outskirts of the rainforest. It was interesting to find out that Thomas Jefferson's family (gr-gr-gr-parents) owned it at one time. Of course there is a gift shop!

I believe a stop at Romney Manor is well worth taking the time for if you are ever in St. Kitts. This stop was included on a Grand Tour I had booked when I visited while on a cruise. We walked around and got lots of pictures of the landscaping. The Batik shop was very clean and neat as was... More

Romney Manor was another great attraction during our visit to St. Kitts. This beautiful manor and the accompanying gardens are well worth the trip. There are some amazing views and plenty of beautiful, colorful flowers to photograph. There is a shop to buy souvenirs or fabric, as well as drinks and snacks. Well worth a visit and highly recommended!

We stopped by this place while on an island tour. It was nothing special... We walked around the entire place in about 15 mins. You can get a few nice pics here. The Botanical garden is basically just upkeep grounds with the plants labeled. I wouldn't go back. There were bathrooms and a small cafe here too. Tons of tourist... More

The grounds of Romney Manor are immaculate and a definite must see while visiting St. Kitt's. The landscaping is absolutely breath-taking. Be sure to check the tree that is over 400 years old.
