My wife and I visited the orchid garden as part of our stopover in Nadi on our honeymoon. The surrounding grounds you walk through are breathtaking...think lush uncut forest, great bridges, huge tree trunks all in view of the 'sleeping giant' himself. Definitely bring your camera. We visited in June and the refreshing drink we got at the end of... More

On the way to the garden, I saw a few little villages and some wild dogs but when i got there, everything was very clean and very green. The garden is amazing, very very green, more flowers than I could have imagined existed and a friendly cat that certainly wasnt a stray. When I had walked around and seen everything,... More

The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is an awesome display of orchards and other tropical type flowers and plants, the rainforest walk is amazing. It is quite humid in there but you get a refreshing tropical juice at the finish. The native Fijians are always very friendly!

We visited as part of an organised tour and found the gardens to be a delightful secret haven with a wonderful display or orchids, bromeliads and other plants. The gardens are well maintained with easy paths with some a little steep so need ti be mobile. A cold mango and pineapple juice afterwards in the cool hut was lovely.

We went to a Sleeping Giant's ZipLine to view how people are sliding on a giant "flying fox". The road is terrible, we thought we wouldn't make it to the garden, luckily the car didn't let us down. When we got to the place, it was amazing - peaceful and magic!

I visited the Garden of the Sleeping Giant along with my boyfriend just this past November. We went on a weekday, at around midday. The bad part about this trip was the timing of our visit, it was the hottest point of the day, and there wasn't much concrete shelter/shade. This 'garden' was a vast 26 acres, with flowers blossoming... More

These gardens are so calming and vibrant. Our lady guide was wonderful and very knowledge about the orchids which I really enjoyed. The layout was great and would be the perfect wedding location.
