This place is stunningly beautiful! Tons of orchids and rare/exotic plants. They have a beautiful backdrop for weddings. This place is the epitome of peaceful and serene. There are benches and hammocks throughout. When you return to the reception area, they welcome you back with a cold glass of tropical juice.

I visited this beautiful, sprawling garden as part of a half-day tour. The garden is abounding with numerous tropical flora, plenty of which I wasn't familiar with. Be prepared for lots of walking through the different areas of the garden. Partially wheelchair and pram/stroller accessible, but some accessible only by stairs. The staff supplied tropical juice once I'd come back... More

If you love orchids be there to take your time and look more closely. No entry fee. Good pathways and steps to help with walking. Use the swing and the hammock and my friends impromptu walk on a fallen tree.

It's a drive from the city. You have to go over unpaved road to get to it. There is a $18 entry fee. If you're into plants and orchids it is nice but otherwise nothing special. They do serve you fruit juice afterwards.

Large well cared for gardens with an amazing array of flowers and plants. Situated at the base of the mountains which are known as the Sleeping Giants (They are shaped like a male and female on their backs) The tour i was on didn't allow for a lot of time here but i really could have spent days wandering through.

We stopped in here on our trip to Fiji. Beautiful gardens and very peaceful. We loved how you could wander off the beaten track and take your time exploring. It was a little dry when we visited so no nice little streams but still very beautiful. We enjoyed walking right to the top of the hill to take photos on... More

I am by no means a garden person but these gardens were just absolutely gorgeous and when we were finished we were given a complimentary fruit drink.

This place was a beautiful garden, I imagined the most beautiful wedding pictures being taken here. The service was fantastic and very informative. The tropical drink after our walk around was a lively touch too.

We visited the garden recently and it was just beautiful. Huge arrays of Orchids, Waterlilies and native flowers, foliages and trees. Being right amongst the trees meant that it wasn't too hot as the canopy gives quite a nice shade and reprieve from the heat. Our walk was finished with a lovely complimentary chilled fruit juice.
