It is very odd to find such a well laid and well planned botanical Gardens in a sleepy island as Nevis. I was expecting a few trees and flowers here and there and I was surprise about the extension, the layout, the South East Asia sculptures and the lovely and relax atmosphere. If you are in Nevis and have a... More

Gardens nice, lots of fountains in multiple pools/water features, sure they be lovely when on. Monkeys devouring the fruit in the exotic fruit garden, clearly can't read the sign that tells them not to. Gorgeous orchids. Interesting Thai restaurant interesting, we didn't try but I believe it's both tasty & reasonable.

We were impressed by the grounds and gardens and even more pleased with the lunch we had in this tropical paradise.

Each visit to Nevis brings me to this breathtaking garden. The beautiful colors from the various island plants leaves me in awe. I take a notebook just to write their names so to remember when I return home.

Most people would visit for the Garden. Very nice, tranquil, pristinely kept, Asian feel rather than Caribbean. $13 US to visit the garden....mmmm. I would visit for the authentic Thai food. Cooked by Thai. Some of the best Thai food I have experienced, outside of Thailand. Food is served from 11am to 4pm. (Only open in the evenings on Fridays).... More

It was lovely to see such hard work for the family that started this project not that long ago! I expected something of an older... More

This place is wonderful. Learning about the tropical fruit plants and spices was truly enlightening! The fresh fruit smoothies was a refreshing treat and the views, the views, the views...just made me never want to leave this place!

This is a nice garden, however all the fountains were turned off. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the food was good. The owner stopped by our table, very friendly. All in all a nice place to visit one of the few bright spots while visiting this horrible island.

Beautiful grounds! Thai restaurant on grounds has amazing food! Try the delish drinks made by their in house expert! During busy season, reservations would be recommended.
