Lovely grounds with gorgeous landscaping. Colourful buildings. Interesting talk about how the batik is made and what makes it authentic. Very reasonable prices for the merchandise. The place was really crowded when we arrived. Lots of tours going on at the same time. However, we did not have to wait long in line. I bought a lovely sarong to wear... More

This was the highlight of our tour around the island--set at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean & absolutely gorgeous. The buildings are picture perfect, as are the gardens around it. The batik making itself was fascinating and the finished products are beautiful! We found great souveniers to take back home--everything from beautiful clothing to picture frames to... More

Whilst driving around the island, we came across Romney Manor, with its Caribelle Batik shop. There were two ladies showing how the wax was applied to the cloth before it is dyed. Although you had to admire their skill, this is only the first step in a multi-step process; and I finished up wanting to see how the other steps... More

We enjoyed the park and gardens and presentation on how Batik is made. We purchased three shirts and thought it was priced fine for the quality. We were surprised when we got the bill that the prices were in West Indies currency not USD. A $150 purchase landed up being $50USD. I should have bought that other shirt!

I had no plans to buy anything when we visited Caribelle Batik but, having been a devoted sewer at one time, I fell in love with the fabrics. The demo was interesting but the finished products are truly unique. Since there were few choices that were both my color and my style, I ended up buying fabric and plan to... More

Fascinating to watch artists at work and learn about the technique. Large variety of batik products to buy. We visited as part of Wingfield Estate tour.

As part or a round St Kitts drive we visited the Caribelle batik factory situated in beautiful botanical gardens. This is a very popular place to visit hence tour buses and tourists in general abound. Very busy and interesting.

This was one of the stops on our shore excursion. The batik store was interesting and they have nice products. There was also a short demonstration of how batik was made. In my opinion some of the products on display were a bit overpriced. But I did bought some batik pouches and soaps for souvenirs. Anyways, this place attracts tourist... More
