The orchids are beautiful and the overall presentation of the gardens is fantastic. All thanks to Raymond Burr apparently. The humidity was very high on our visit but even so the walk was exceptional. The complementary drink at the finish was very welcome.

Visited this attraction and it is a must see. Lovely tropical orchids, ferns, trees, ponds. I'm not a garden person and got dragged along but enjoyed it.

The drive to the gardens was great and so is the place itself with lush mountains and scenic views, however I did expect the walk to be longer. It only took us about half an hour to an hour to get around the whole place and for the price, I thought that was quite unreasonable. I would have liked to... More

Given the tropical location, I expected the gardens to be absolutely lush with abundant supplies of large orchids. The garden is nice, but most of the orchids are grown in a greenhouse & just brought over to the garden for viewing. The pot size is about 5-6 inches & plants appear to be immature. Heavy rain made our visit a... More

relaxing way to spend a day, what we did not like was our Indian Spokeperson/tour guide around the Garden. she seems unhappy to tour us and just gave us a brief tour of the garden. She's not giving us a bula smile and was just poker face the entire walk.

Was such a beautiful place to visit. Went with my bf who didn't think he would enjoy it but he had a great time too! It can get a bit steep so wouldn't recommend it to people that struggle with walking. Flowers are stunning and friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff.
