We visited the garden/gallery and were so happy we did! It offers a beautiful and lush respite from the touristy Montego Bay hip strip. Ras greeted us and gave a brief history of the home/garden/museum and interesting experience of building on the steep hillside/cliff while a hummingbird landed in my hand to feed from the feeder. The guide was very informative and pleasant. It rained while we were there which seemed only to enhance the experience...they provided us with umbrellas.

Thank you so much for visiting with your family. I am so happy you choose to visit and experience what makes Jamaica Jamaica. I smile as you mentioned the umbrellas and the rain. The garden way up in the mountain is literally a breath of fresh air. It was our absolute pleasure. Thanks for finding us here on Trip Advisor and for reviewing us. Sincerely all of us at Ahhh..

We've done 9 tours in 7 days and most places we really enjoyed. This one was by far the highlight of the trip.

Our only complaint about the hotel (S hotel) is that their tour desk didn't offer a tour to Ras Natango Gallery and Garden.

If you would like to know what real Jamaica is all about this is the place to visit. If you'd like to learn more about ecotourism this is the place to visit. If you'd like to hear a story about a family that turned a cliff into a beautiful garden this is the place to visit.

The views are phenomenal. The garden is beautiful. The owners (Ras, Tamika & Ayale) are wonderful people. It was so much fun to feed the hummingbirds.

Thank you so much for being patient with my 4 year old kid. It took her like 20 minutes to feed a hummingbird. She was a little bit scared in the beginning and decided to feed a bird towards the end of the trip. Ayale spent about 15 minutes helping my kid to properly place her finger to ensure a bird would land on it :)

Ras and his son are well-known artists. We did buy one painting from the gallery.

It's been more than a month since we came back. My daughter keeps talking about the birds and the garden.

I'd strongly recommend to hire a car to get there. The road is steep and narrow.

Tamika,

My wife will email you some pics of our balcony when it gets a bit warmer. It's a bit chilly in NYC at the moment and our mini garden is hibernating.

Ahhh...Ras Natango Gallery and Garden Tours was one of the highlights of our recent visit to Jamaica! Our tour guide/driver Raymond, of “Raymond One Love Tours,” took us to this gallery and botanical garden which is located atop the hills overlooking Montego Bay.

We were made to feel so welcome by Ras, Tamika and their son Ayale when we visited this unique home and gardens built on a cliff side. We had an opportunity to feed hummingbirds, which are the national bird of Jamaica, as they perched on our fingers. Our tour guide Marcía was so knowledgeable, identifying various plants as well as the history of unique objects found in the garden. At the end of the tour we were given an opportunity to visit their art gallery. Everything displayed was made by the family or local artisans. There was absolutely no pressure to make a purchase.

It was so nice experiencing the passion and pride this family has for their home, gardens and Jamaica. Make sure and include this garden as part of your trip to Jamaica!

After years of relishing Ras Natango's work throughout the Half Moon Resort, we finally discovered how we could further enjoy his wonderful perspective of Jamaican life. My husband and I were picked up at Half Moon and then treated to a narrated tour through Montego Bay. The car then slipped into the outskirts of the city for us to explore this wonderful garden perched on the hillside with a fabulous view of Montego Bay. Ras shared the story of his home and how his family has transformed it into a creative oasis for nature and art lovers. Macia delivered a delightful tour through the garden. Tamika and Ayale are gracious and welcoming. Thank your for sharing your personal stories and love of Jamaica. The gallery pieces capture Jamaica's lush nature along with the culture of the island. I hope to return with the confidence to feed the hummingbirds :) .

We had a wonderful time visiting with Ras, Tamika, and Ayale at their home Ahhh....Ras Natango Gallery and Gardens. While hummingbirds flew around us, the tour began with the story of how they built their home and gardens on their cliffside property, an amazing accomplishment. We then had a guided tour of the gardens, a beautiful collection of plants and clever and creative artwork. After that, we were invited to spend as much time as we wanted on our own in the garden. (There are places in the garden especially for children.) Then we visited the gallery and gift shop and heard the stories about several of Ras and Ayale’s paintings. As an addition, we enjoyed a delicious Jamaican lunch prepared by Tamika in that lovely setting.
The best part was getting to know this real Jamaican family whose welcoming hearts, gentle spirits, talent, creativity, and energy is amazing!
If you want to go beyond tourist Jamaica and experience the real Jamaica, this is a great place!

This was our second trip to the beautiful and amazing Ahhh Ras Natango Gallery and Garden located in Montego Bay. We have visited many locations in and around Montego Bay and can honestly say that this is our favorite place to visit while staying at Secrets. We always feel welcomed so a huge thank you to Tamika, Ras, Ayale and Marcia. We love the wonderful and informative stories from Ras and Tamika that details the creation of their homeplace along with the beautiful tour through their gardens provided by their son Ayale. Also, a special thank you for the delicious lunch and beautiful table setting that was prepared for my wife and me during our visit. Finally, we must thank our close friends from Canada Tim and Donna along with Handover Transportation for making this wonderful trip possible.

If you are a friend of flowers, hummingbirds, art and tea this is the place to book yourself on your stay in Montego Bay, and what a view you get!
We will never forget the smells, colours and stories of hardwork to contribute to this secret paradise. The smile never left my face for the whole 5hours. Totally worth every dollar.

An unusual combination of cliff-side garden, art gallery, and low-key but exquisite hospitality. Ras Natango and his family are unique and charming guides to a not well known but wonderful gem. A horticulturalist’s paradise. It’s way up in the hills behind Montego Bay; make sure your driver knows where he is going.

We had a wonderful time at Ahhh. It was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Montego bay. The view is breathtaking and the garden was a long tour and was really beautiful. She even fed us lunch. The driver then took us in town to several spots to buy food for the night. Great experience.
