I went here with my parents and enjoyed an atmosphere of Fiji I have not seen before. It is a bit tricky and expensive to get out there, but if you appreciate flowers and nature it is worth it. We paid a taxi $100 FJD and were able to stop at the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple.

My boyfriend and i visited this on a tour of Nadi and it was gorgeous and beautiful. It's nice because a guide showed us some flowers and what their names were and then we went on a nice walk around the rainforest there. It's hard to get there so either you need your own car or visit on a tour... More

Do yourself a favour and visit these magnificent gardens. The variety of orchids and bromeliads on display is simply wonderful. Who knew that there were so many varieties of these gorgeous flowers to see; and all in one place!

We came here with an hour to spare following our soak in the hot springs. An hour provided enough time for the circuit walk. It has a beautiful orchid display - and a tranquil rainforest setting. We loved it. The complimentary pawpaw, guava and mango punch at the end was divine.

We visited this beautiful garden as part of a brilliant Rosie tour around Nadi.The orchids are well displayed and the whole garden is a wonder to explore.A tropical fruit juice is offered at the end of the walk and there were lots of smiling faces.

Raymond Burr's original orchid collection from around the world continues to thrive in a tranquil setting. Further into the garden are Lilly ponds, larger trees, a bush walk and a wedding chapel. Mary, our guide was amazing in her knowledge. It's a cool oasis on a hot day. The complementary juice in the pavilion was an added bonus

A gorgeous natural forest setting place to spend a couple of hours. Beautifully maintained. Free guide included in entry. Well worth it.

If you like orchids, this is a must see place. Really beautifully maintained gardens and we had a very knowledgeable guide who was able to give us plenty of detail about the plants, and the setting is just lovely. This was a highlight of our trip to Fiji.

The collection of orchids is spectacular. Our local fijian guide, provided by the Garden, was wonderfully knowledgeable. This is a beautiful place.

The service at the counter when we arrived was unfriendly and the price has gone up from everything I had read. Apparently change of management?
