We actually did the Zip line at the sleeping Giant and had a ball. Awesome people and you can zip over and over. Beautiful setting challenging hike to the Waterfall is worth it.

We enjoyed our walk through the gardens, the lady thT took us around was very knowledgable and funny! Gardens are not usually something I am interested in but I thought it was well worth it!

A cool strol away from the glaring Nadi sun is well worth seeing whilst you're in the area - not crowded and easy to combine with the hot springs (on the same road). Orchids the defining feature, but the dazzling colours of flowers, lillly pond and rainforest inside were lovely. Great complimentary tropical drink at the end!

A really beautiful and peaceful place to wander through. Gives you a feel for tropical vegetation of Fiji. Staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgable.

I have been lucky enough to visit these gardens twice this year, in January with my husband and 14 year old son and then again in November with my 21 year old daughter.

Such a gorgeous well kept garden. Worth the trip if you are a nature lover. The walk takes about 30 minutes where after you are given a complimentary drink!

An enjoyable morning viewing the lush and tranquil gardens with amazing orchids and beautiful settings. The tour included a market visit and a visit to a village and the home of Rosie (Rosie's tours) with panoramic views. Finishing in Nadi at the Temple.

I am a gardening nut and I love just about everything there is about plants and tropical landscapes. The garden of the sleeping giants....in my opinion anyway, wasn't even a garden. 200 orchid pots placed randomly in a poorly maintained section of land, full of weeds, poorly maintained paths (boarding on dangerous) without any signage....doesn't make a worthwhile tourist attraction....

The gardens delightful, but the thermal mud baths are a bit rustic and facilities for changing not that good. Worth a visit.
