Loved the gardens and took masses of photos. Home made mango juice was delicious. Great to be able to wander at your leisure and enjoy the peace and natural surrounds.

Well worth the trip to go and visit. Beautiful orchids and tropical plants to be seen. Allow atleast one hour. Easy walking trail, with some paths up hill so obviously not suited for the disabled. At the end you also get a lovely cold tropical drink.

Orchids and tropicals everywhere. Easy walking trails, not exhausting even in heat. At the end of the hike they give you a complimentary glass of sweet but welcome juice.

Worth while stopping by meandering around the gardens, allow an hour, very peaceful. Large hammocks hang to lie around for a while if you have time on your hands. Great walkways and steps guide you around the area.

The garden of the sleeping giant was an unplanned stop on our way out of the mud pools. It was absolutely stunning, just wild enough to look like it blended in with the mountain's surrounding but regulated enough to have clear paths through this little paradise. It was pouring rain when we went through and was still worth the visit... More

Great place to get lost with nature and enjoy the serene ambiance and environment that nature has to offer. The variety of orchid and their colors especially when they bloom is mesmirising. We took our picnic lunch as well and some beverage, after walking around, great to sit and have some feed while spending quality time with loved ones.

We saw this place when it had just started, late 70's. It has blossomed into a stunning garden. A beautiful peaceful place with all kinds of interesting flora. Lovely helpful staff!

Well laid out and colourful. Worth a trip cos there isn't much else near Nadi. Orchids and local species were in abundance.
