Stopped here on another tour. Got a good explanation as to how they grow vanilla (labor intensive). Received samples of the various jams that they make. Very Good. Nice view and clean restrooms.

This garden is beautiful. An out of the way area off the main road. When we got to the top after driving up a relatively steep road, the views of the island and ocean were amazing. The garden has a great selection of tropical fruit trees, flowers, and an area where they are cultivating Tahitian Vanilla plants, some were in... More

My husband and I recently visited the Tropical Gardens as part of an Island Tour while on Moorea... as they don't take cash we actually rented a car and came back the next day to buy their homemade jams... they were that good! The price point made them an incredible value and we can't wait to share them when we... More

This is probably a better place to visit as part of a tour. We tried to get in with our rental car and had to back down into a turn around spot. Huge pot holes, road was a rocks and pebbles that spin out when you are trying to up the grade in first gear.

Very interesting to see vanilla bean plants and how they're grown. Owner there was very nice. I asked about a fruit tree I'd never seen before and she plucked the fruit off and sliced it up for us to try - it was wild mangoes. We bought some fresh papaya and pineapple juice which was delicious and refreshing. If you... More

Arnaud at Voila Tours recommended this place to me. And despite the harrowing experience of driving my rental up that steep hill, it was a beautiful experience. I didn't eat lunch there. But I did enjoy the incredible view. And purchased the white gardenia jam. With real gardenias in them. Drizzled over some soft cheese with nuts and grapes is... More

A great stop on Moorea featuring fresh tropical fruit jams for sale. They have a hothouse on site with orchids and so I got to see vanilla beans on the plant. Very cool. Beautiful gardens surround the food stand.

The welcome was friendly and the produce very tasty. Taro icecream was a new taste sensation and very welcome on the hot day we were there

My wife and I visited Moorea in April to celebrate 10 years of marriage. We heard about Tropical Garden from Voil’a Mooria, a sailboat tour that I suggest you take if you are in Moorea. Tropical Garden is part way up the mountain and has an amazing view of the lagoon. If you go on Saturday, you can get lunch,... More
