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

This is built on an old sugar plantation and you can see a few ruins. Mostly a selling operation but the demo was interesting and the fabrics hung out to dry were lovely. Lots in the shop if you are looking to buy. The garden is on two levels and impossible to get to the lower portion with a wheelchair.... More

There is a small garden surrounding the batik shop. The fabrics are amazing. Great place to get unique souvenirs that are actually made on the island. There is a person that shows you how the batiks are made. The only thing that I found odd is that there is $3 US charge to get in. That seems silly since many... More

Found this attraction to be the highlight of our cruise tour. It had a beautiful gardens and clean bathrooms. It also had a great gift shop where batik art and other gift pieces are sold. The cushion covers are the best deal. $20 for beautiful batik cushion covers. Looks like art on your cushions. You get to take home a... More

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
