Me and my wife wanted to do something different in Eilat, it was the best choice we made. After 3 days of party we had a moment of peace. The staff are very kind and easy going. The garden is absolutely amazing, there is a nice walk threw it with a lot of chilled out places to sit, we took... More

A beautiful garden to relax with a nice variety of interesting plants. I only wish that there were more name tags for the plants and more information about the local ecosystmem. All in all, a place well worth visiting.

I visited the botanical garden together with my two 6 year-olds and my parents. It is not easy to find a place that can be equally appreciated by all age groups (myself included), but the botanical gardens provided a relaxing afternoon for all. The staff is friendly and you can tell how proud they are of every leaf that they... More

We enjoyed this small oasis on the northern edge of Eilat. The Rain Forest was a delightful surprise.

Been there with 4 years old girl and 9 months baby. Nice place. The only thing that I didn't like is the fact that you can't bring your own food and the coffee shop is not kosher.

This is the 2nd time we visited the Eilat Botanic Garden. It is much improved since the last time we were there, either last year or the year before. There are many more guard rails, making it much easier for Seniors to navigate the paths. The Rain Forest was a pleasant surprise. On such a hot day, the mist against... More

Sure, there are many more luscious gardens, but this one was cute. The most notable thing is that it got lots of nooks for sitting and sculptures for kids. I think families with kids would find it most fun as you can basically let them run around. There's also a plant shop where you can buy some flowers and gardening... More
