We used our hire car to drive there - sign off main road was quitre small and easy to miss and this attraction was not listed on the tourist brochures. Well worth the visit - colours are superb. Beyond the orchids there are lots of garden 'rooms' to explore on the mountain side

This place is fabulous if you like looking at orchids! It's steamy and it's an easy walk if you don't mind the humidity. We were there in May I've been there in April really a months difference in heat makes a huge difference! It is the most peaceful walk through a tropical garden.

Very peaceful and serene garden, consisting of natural pathways and board walks. As you make your way around the path you come across ponds, hammocks and swings to enjoy as well as hundreds of different flowers/plants.. once you finish your stroll you are greeted with a delicious glass of tropical punch and allowed to sit and enjoy the surroundings.. highly...

Great way to get out of Denaura and go and explore a bit of Fiji. Wear good shoes as the path is a bit up and down in places. Definitely worth the visit.

A beautiful and peaceful garden to walk through. Two hammocks to lay in, two swings to swing on, and two ponds to gaze into. A glass of fruit punch is offered following your exploration of the garden in a relaxing patio area.

Really beautiful place! The grounds are peaceful and lush with hammocks and sitting areas sprinkled around. They give you a glass of passion fruit juice and time to sit and pretend you own this gorgeous place. Plant and orchid lovers will really enjoy it!

Not much to do here other than walk through and look at the garden. If you like orchids you will like it. They were giving out fruit juice when you got back but we didn't get one for some reason. I wouldn't bother going back

The Orchid Gardens here are spectacular well worth the vist. The road to the gardens needs a bit more of maintenance a bit more I think.

Entry fee ~$16 FJD, walked through and saw beautiful display of orchids, then you get to this lush green garden, with hammocks dotted around, giant swings at the top of the hill, traditional looking huts and just beautifully green everywhere with pops of colour from the flowers. They serve up a nice icy tropical fruit juice after your walk in... More

Well kept gardens, good photo opportunity, cheap entry F$16 with a great drink at the end. Bumpy road is a bit but our Taxi managed it with ease....
