My wife is into gardens hence my booking this visit. I must say that I did find it interesting and very nicely laid out.There were also ponds there. Needless to say my wife thought it wonderful and we had a guide who gave sufficient but not needlessly long information.

Went to the garden early then followed it with the Sabeto Hot Springs & Mud Pool. The garden is simply beautiful and would recommend to all those garden and plant lovers. So many different types of orchids. It is humid in the garden so be prepared. When you finish they give you a nice cool fruit juice,

Decided to hire a car for a couple of days whilst staying at Denerau. This garden was just one of our stops and it was well worth the visit. It is amazing to think that of all the places in the world, Raymond Burr would choose a remote part of Fiji. The gardens are beautiful and so tranquil. Take a... More

Our little one love to go this place. Seeing a lots of different flowers and plants, the tour guide has explained to us about the special plants, especially showed what is Kava and how important is to their every family gathering.

If you're a nature person this is a lovely little break from the chaos of Nadi. It's at the base of a mountain and is run and maintained by the Fijian people. Beautiful walkways through gardens and ponds.

Various locals recommended this garden, and it was lovely. We live in a tropical climate so many of the plants were familiar, but the gardens are beautifully laid out, an oasis that has inspired me for my gardens at home. If you're not familiar with tropical plants then I'm sure you'll find this garden spectacular

Wandered through the gardens with friends for a little over an hour, we had no guided part of the tour so we found that disappointing, staff were happy just to sit and watch us wander. It was very relaxing although I'm pretty sure the men in our group found it a little tedious and not their thing. I was able... More

Lovely collection of orchids and a focus on local habitat. Relaxing place to spend an hour or two. Guided part of tour was very good.
