The tour stopped by here at a turnabout, but it was a stop well worth seeking out. If I return to St. Kitts, I will spend an afternoon here! It was $3 to get to the museum and see the women work, learn about the craft, and peruse the shop. Beautiful gardens and grounds, meticulous and quality work. Bargain prices... More

This is a lovely spot which combines history of the original manor(built by an ancestor of Thomas Jefferson) with the current local craft of batik . The entrance to the shop provides a peek into how batik is created. Many lovely spots to photograph and overlook the surrounding area. The gardens and small concession stand provide seats to relax while... More

I really enjoyed this stop. We had lots of time to walk thru the gardens, learned the history of Romney Manor= it had burned, then we toured the Batlik shop on our own. I was impressed at how it was made, some items that are more than 3 colors take upto to 9 to ten days. The store had lots... More

After strolling though the gardens of Romney Manor, follow the smell of melting wax and listen to the short informative live talk about the art of Batik. The gift shop is full of beautiful items from dresses to shirts to scarves to sachets and more. There is a restroom and beverages for sale nearby.

This tour started at Romney Manor where the main house burned but they still have areas where they produce and create beautiful batik pieces. The trees around and gardens are beautiful. They have a very nice gift shop where you can purchase pieces they have made.

This place is beautiful and it's very interesting to learn about the fabric. It takes 9 days to complete the process. The small entry fee is worth every penny. We could not get enough pictures it was some of the most beautiful gardens we have seen .

We stopped at Caribelle Batik as part of our "Best of St Kitts Tour". The walk in through the gardens was amazing. The grounds were stunning! I could have stayed for hours just photographing plants, trees and flowers. The shop was interesting. Several artists were "painting" the Batik patterns on to various materials. You could buy Batik yard goods as... More
