This was a very pleasant stop on our tour of the island. It was most colorful and genuinely interesting. Great stop for gifts for everyone back home

Almost all local tours include this batik factory. Here a lady will give you a brief explanation on how batik is made, and show you fabrics in different stages of the process, all in one place. I remember a much detailed explanation long ago in Thailand. Then, of course, you exit through the store. They offer a good variety of... More

On your tour of the island drop in and relax in these beautiful surroundings. I agree it is not a botanical garden but it is a beautiful Caribbean park very well presented and maintained. Very relaxing with beautiful views and only for about $3 a head. The house has an amazing history connected to the early US President Thomas Jeffersons... More

This was my second visit to St. Kitts aboard the Emerald princess and a second visit as well to Caribelle Batik. It was a " I have to go back" kind of place. Lots of history and the Batik is fabulous. Some people may think it is too expensive but the quality of the cloth and the workmanship is worth... More

It's worth a stop if you're on your way to or from the historic brimstone fort. The gardens are beautiful and well tended. Whilst the batik making demonstration not so great and prices are oriented towards cruise ship trade.

We went to Caribelle Batik as part of an island tour. We were given 30 minutes at this stop, but could easily have spent an hour. The gardens around the grounds are beautiful - especially the enormous Saman tree. The batik work itself is also beautiful. The description and demonstration of how it's made is informative, and the shop was... More

We have been on a cruise for 17 days to Romney Manor when we drove up and got out I looked down the hill and knew I was home. Right out front there was a cloths line with fabric drying on it. I couldn't wait to get inside and see all the beautiful fabric. When you first walk through the... More

We visited Caribelle Batik while visiting Romney Manor and Gardens. The art of batik is fascinating and very interesting to say the least. Fabric,dye, and wax plus fabulous designs all create these wonderful items. Take time to watch a demonstration....and buy some of the beautiful batik.

I had no idea about batik when my husband and I boarded Christian's Tangerine Tour bus, but when we stopped at Caribelle Batik, I was happy to learn all about this art. In addition to learning about the art of batik, they have extensive gardens, and a gift shop that I could have spent all day in. I ended up... More
