Beautiful gardens and just the most amazing flowering orchids. If you are into flowers this is the place for you. Not huge gardens but to see so many orchards it is worth it.

What a beautiful spot. We had hired a local to take us here, which was a bonus. An absolutely beautiful place to visit with the most beautiful scenery and orchids. One thing to be aware of, if you are visiting on a Sunday, the garden is only open until midday.

We visited the garden of the sleeping giant. It was nice, but we've seen better gardens. I wouldn't consider the more elevated paths to be wheelchair or pram friendly due to the steps.

The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a very peaceful location, beautiful orchids and a tranquil walk - at the end of which you are given a glass of fresh juice. There are hammocks around the walk where you can just chill out. Enjoyable hour spent prior to visiting the Mud Pool.

Built in 1977 by Raymond Burr with his own orchids, this must be the best orchid collection in Fiji. Good area to sit with a soft drink or coffee then walk around the gardens, around the few ponds and up to the top area with great views.

This review is a little old now - visited the Garden of the Sleeping Giant with my family of 5 and 2 family friends in August 2014. As a teenager growing up in Lautoka, Fiji I once had a part-time job as a tour guide for visiting cruise ships taking groups to the Garden. After more than 20 years, I... More

I went here as a part of a tour whilst visiting this beautiful island to attend a wedding. Huge array of different kinds of flowers and plants on display. Very easy walk and accompanied by a pleasant and knowledgeable guide. I then had a really tasty fruit juice before we headed to our next destination.
