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

We stopped here as part of our island tour. It's a neat place and has a great view from the porch. The jams are pretty tasty here and we ended up buying the wild mango with passion fruit jam. They have a greenhouse where they grow vanilla it was really interesting to see and hear about the vanilla production. We... More

We visited Moorea Tropical Gardens twice in March. First time we came during Franckyfranck tour. We had jam tasting: very original jams made of tropical fruits growing here in the garden at least 7 different kinds, I bought two: pineapple-vanilla and mango ($5 each). Here you also can buy vanilla ($10 & $15), water and freshly squeezed pineapple juice ($5)... More

The plantation is on a high hill directly above Moorea's Opunohu bay. The view of the bay is spectacular, especially when there isn't some cruise ship in it to ruin the view. The garden itself is charming if not particularly large. The highlight of the visit was definitely the jam taste test that is offered at the little stand in... More

A charming site to visit. Lovely grounds with all types of fruits and tropical plants growing. Highlights are of course the vanilla orchids growing, which the owner pollinates by hand daily to grow vanilla beans that take months to mature and months more of hand rubbing and drying to cure. Absolutely delicious homemade jams are available for sample and purchase... More

This was included as part of a planned excursion from the cruise ship. The guide was knowledgeable about the plants and the island history. Included was a chance to take photos of the beautiful flowers, learn how vanilla is cultivated and taste samples of the fruit jams created from the island fruits. The shop area has seats and tables so... More

Nice little garden with tropical fruits. It is nice to go around with the staff who will provide explanations. They sell lovely confitures (jam), the ananas-vanille (pineapple-vanilla) is lovely. It is a nice place to come to see the sunset.
