Located at Romney Manor, alongside ruins of an old sugar plantation. The demonstration of the art of batik is illuminating, and the gift shop has many items you can purchase to bring a bit of The Island home with you. Enjoy a walk through the lovely gardens, see the old Bell Tower and stroll through the remains of the plantation... More

On Thenford Gray's tour this was one of our stops....very interesting to see & hear how batik is done. Our visit was in December, 2015 which isn't a choice.

This is a great demonstration and soooo many items that they make. These ladies are so talented and their items are diverse and BEAUTIFUL. We only brought home a lovely hummingbird pillow but would have loved several items that space did not allow. Thank you ladies.

We (2) went by local taxi ... $80 return from the Port for the whole car . Our guide and driver was a local man who was proud of his country and very knowledgeable. We had had enough of group tours and enjoyed being on our own! Brought unique batik pieces, including one that was on the clothes line drying... More

We visited this as part of an island tour with Grey's Tours. It was interesting to see how batik is made and learn how to tell if something is real batik or just printed to look like batik. The shop was primarily for sales and there were some museum quality batik wall hangings that were beautiful to see. They had... More

Tucked into the ruins of the Romney Manor, we peeked into the Batik store, aka Caribelle Batik. I guess we expected more of it, but it was two batik women explaining the process they use for their trade. 5 minutes and it was over. Very simple hand skilled trade. The rest of the place was a sales area of various... More

What can I say.... this place is truly beautiful. Set in stunning grounds this wonderful Batik shop/ factory is a little hidden gem. The staff are really friendly and the demonstration really interesting. The shop has a massive array of products. I came home with some quilting Squares and am really excited to start my new project!

We stopped as part of a tour. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I remember my sister making batik when I was a child. I enjoyed watching the ladies and the memories. It is mostly a shop, but you don't feel pressured to buy. The gardens outside were amazing!

We took a bus tour of the island, from a cruise ship. When we arrived at Caribelle Batik we were pleasantly surprised. The gardens around the property are so pretty. Just walking around the place was really lovely. The colors on the buildings were delightful, very Caribbean. There were some old ruins and amazing views. Learn about the batik craft... More
