Came as part of a guided tour, lots of orchids and other tropical plants, it is well worth a look. You get a guided tour included and some refreshments.

We spent an hour or so wandering around the gardens - they're lovely and there are some really nice orchids. They gave us a very sweet, cold cordial afterwards which was perfect after the heat! Just watch how much the taxi trip costs as it ended up being quite an expensive outing for us.

Such a beautiful get away from Nadi and Denauru relaxing in the gardens with its variety of orchids native fauna n flora. Go early in the day as it warms up around 10.30am and makes walking less pleasurable in the heat. I wouldn't recommend the gardens if your needing wheel chair access.

In general flowers are not really my thing, but this place was amazing. The garden was beautiful and well maintained and the mountain back drop was awesome. It was raining while we were there and the facility provided umbrellas at no additional cost. At the end they give you a delicious fresh fruit drink. As it was reasonably priced, $16... More

I'm not a great fan of gardens, but this was a nice stroll through the garden with some interesting plants and trees, and the guides were really nice. Also, the Sleeping Giant mountains are a nice scene as well. I would recommend this if you are going to the Mud Bath, as it's along the same road.

This is a beautiful place that emphasizes orchids and tropical foliage. Various paths wind through the garden revealing pleasant surprises at every turn. Some of the trees are ancient and very large. Many blooming orchids and halyconia line the pathways.

As you enter the walkway you'll see all the exotic orchids that lasts a few metres long. Afterwards it's a few tropical flowers of the similar specie like Bird-of-Paradise. A lily pond and a stairway up the hill but not really much to see. I think it could do better by giving more life to the area with better landscaping... More

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
