The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a must do when staying in or around Nadi. The orchid collection is better than any I have seen anywhere else. The paths are well kept and easy to walk on. I did a self guided tour using their map and really enjoyed my visit- you can do as much walking as you... More

I wouldn't go out of my way for this place but if you are passing through definitely stop by and spend half an hour. The setting has many rainforest type plants and trees but what impressed me was an orchid the size of my hand which I'm thinking you could only really grow in the tropics. If I remember correctly...

This is nice adventure that takes longer to get there than to actually see. However, the drive to the gardens is an adventure in itself--driving through the countryside and bumping over muddy roads. It is nice to see the Sleeping Giant up close as it is in view much of the time while in Fiji. The orchids and other flowers... More

A nice garden area at the base of the mountains. A great day for family outing. Be prepared for a long walk. Get some sun shade such as hat, However umbrellas are provided by the office. there used to be lost of orchids but seemed the number has declined due to recent cyclones and drought. Staff are nice and friendly.... More

I love Orchids, and was excited to go here. We drove from Natadola Bay, which is about 45 minutes to the Orchids. Fijians are NOT big on street signs, so we had a very difficult time finding it. We even had 2 men, after stopping and asking for directions, lead us to it. They led us close to it, but... More

The only good thing about this place is its peaceful. When we came most of the plants look dead and dry nothing spectacular.

The entry into the gardens was $18FGD you walk yourself around the gardens. Nothing has labels or names on them so you have no ideas what plant it is. yes pretty but definately not worth $18. I did inform them to put little labels made out of wood carvings would be a great assistance to identify the plants. after the... More

This was a very peaceful walk surrounded by a wide variety of landscapes and flora. There were plenty of places to sit and relax on what was a very muggy day. This is not a full day activity but was great when paired with the Sabeto mud pools which is just down the road.

We had a lovely tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the beautiful orchids and other plants in the garden. What a wonderful place that was gifted to the people of Fiji by Raymond Burr and for generations to come to visit and enjoy. The garden is well worth the visit.

Wanted to visit, but the place is cash only. We only had card. That isn't in the brochures nor is it something the tour operators mentioned. It's $18FJD per person.
