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

The Botanical Gardens were a high point of my recent trip to Nevis. The grounds are beautiful and very well-maintained. There is a tremendous variety of orchids and other varieties of flowers and trees. The guide who took us on a tour was very knowledgeable and told us a great deal about the island’s flora. If you are visiting Nevis,... More

what a cool Botanic Garden! Took cab to get there and combined it with other sights. Cabby ran some errants and came back after an hour. Should have planned much longer stay . Beautiful tropical plants, some fountains and Asian and South Pacific Sculptures. Didn't have time to try the on-site Thai Restaurant but was told that it is very... More

As the guide drives you in you are first impressed by the shiny stainless steel gates. Then the various south asian statues found throughout out the well laid out gardens. A paradise of tranquility and karma. The gift shop has items from all over the world to purchase. Plan to spend 45 minutes here.
