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..

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!

Escaping from the heat of the coast and sampling the wonderful views en route to Ahhh whet our appetites for the day. But there was no way we expected our visit to turn out to be this most delightful jewel of Jamaica. Ras, Tamika & Ayale have created a horticulturalist's dream on this steep, rugged terrain. They were the perfect hosts. Ras explained the history and evolution of his gallery & garden, Ayale gave us an informed tour of the varied plants ...while Tamika worked hard, with Spring taking hold in the garden. Initially we perched in a wooden hut listening to the history of the garden, admiring the views down to the ocean in the distance. Although engrossed in Ras's tale, we watched and wondered at the many species of birds in the vicinity. The most amazing were some beautiful humming birds we were able to feed while they sat safely on our outstretched fingers. We then explored the nature reserve on narrow, winding paths - each turn revealing different species of plants. The garden was idyllic and extra attractions were the sculptures, water feature and resting places. Ayale's knowledge was a credit to his parents' education and his own patience and learning over the years. Finally we spent time looking at the paintings, artefacts and gifts that were for sale in the gallery. We came away with some wonderful memories and Tamika's book, "Unearthing the Diamond'. I look forward to an absorbing read when back in the cold and wet UK....perhaps in self-isolation in these frightening times with Coronavirus spreading throughout our treasured planet. We felt quite emotional on my departure, having spent time in the company of these lovely Jamaican people who have created such a brilliant testament to nature on their patch of the island. Undoubtedly for me, the highlight of my stay in Jamaica - I urge all with a love of nature, peace and creativity to visit.

Thank you ever so much for visiting Ahhh... on your trip to Jamaica. Reading your review at this time of the morning brings tears to my eyes. This morning we work even here at a distance as we practice social isolation while being operational. At Ahhh... we promote living at one with Nature. I hope you will read Unearthing the Diamond and as you read gain strength that we survive and the beauty you experienced , the peace at Ahhh is a result of my Unearthing. Love , health and all wonderful blessings to you both Ayale is such a blessing . I often tell Ras that our son is just perfect. He is gently , and such a peaceful soul. From Our message to you is "We survive the earth heals and all is well." The Ahhh...Family

We booked before leaving the states on trip advisor. We chose a Saturday. It was such a delight to visit. We got to feed hummingbirds, their son gave us and a other guests a tour of the beautiful gardens. The story of how the gardens and gallery came to be is amazing. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable few hours there. Would recommend to anyone who loves nature and art.

Thank you so much for adding Ahhh... to your vacation in Jamaica. I am so happy you had booked for the Saturday because the other persons here when you visited were last minute enquiries that morning and we took them because we were open for you. We open to the public Monday's- Fridays and by appointment on the weekends. Your Trip Advisor Saturday booking was your appointment. Thank you for reviewing us as trip Advisor is responsible for 90% of our traffic. Sincerely with gratitude, The Ahhh...Team
