If you are interested in orchids this a good collection. The variety if palms is interesting, the cacti currently immature, the fruit section not bad. The greenhouse is divine. Views from the main building (housing a Thai restaurant and gift shop) are stunning. However, this tropical oasis suffers an identity crisis, it's a family owned business and the staff are... More

We visited the gardens amidst a slight tropical shower and it made the gardens feel even more romantic and isolated. The grounds are truly beautiful and it is very easy to navigate. We did not go to the restaurant, however, it looked like a great setting in the middle of the gardens. This place is lovely, well worth a visit.... More

Very nice, small, some really pretty areas, but there are no butterflies. All the advertising I had come across said that they were butterflies and parrots. There were parrots in smallish cages but no butterflies. Allot of hype but not else. Tropical fruit garden was just a few trees, water features were nice.

We went to see the gardens and ended up going into the house as well. The restaurant is Thai and is on the upper floor so you have a super view of Charlestown and sea below. The gardens were unexpectedly really really good.... and our lunch was too. I believe they also do dinner. Great fresh juices / smoothies -... More

On a day trip to Nevis from St Kitts my wife and I visited these wonderful gardens in January. They are superb and should definitely be included in the tour of this perfect caribean island. These gardens are family run and are really a perfect example of botanical gardens growing in the wonderful climate of Nevis. Everyone there working there... More

It feels that the entire tropics are somehow contained within these walls. Serene, tranquil, and abounding with colour. Great thai food and colourful drinks (if a little on the sweet side), the team are attentive and very welcoming indeed.

A beautiful, tranquil setting with ocean view of the St Kitts in the distance. The entrance fee was reasonable and staff friendly. There are no 'official' guides so you are on your own to walk the grounds. The gift shop has a variety of Nevisian artistry. We returned later in the week for dinner at the Thai Restaurant on property.... More

It was a lovely experience. Unfortunately, there are no guides to help you with identifying the foliage, but it was wonderful nonetheless. It was a very peaceful and relaxing stroll though the estate with my friends. There is a tree in which guests are asked to sign their names (with any sharp object) onto the leaves. Due to the properties... More

I wanted to visit the Gardens specifically to purchase some honey to bring home. We visited mid morning which was perfect as it was not too hot yet. I bought 5 bottles and they were kind enough to bubble wrap them for travel. The grounds are amazing! I posted them to my FB account and my friends were in awe.... More
