The selection of orchids is really beautiful and the forest is awesome (you can even find some cool critters and reptiles) if... More

Very peaceful scenery, a real oasis. Worth spending some quiet time to take it in. When we went there were very few people on account of the weather, which was even better.

All those tropical plants you have in your household or garden are here and they are large and beautiful.Leisurely walk on a boardwalk . Mango juice is served. Flower enthusiasts will live this garden.

Just after the Nadi airport, 25 mins from Nadi. Looks like a privately owned park, 18$ entry fee for each adults is bit too high. Even though a big tourist attraction the roads are not good. The Park had been running down and the wooden bridges are already not well maintained. But the view, flowers, birds singing, creeks running are... More

Arrived and was greeted by a guide. He walked us thru the entire garden explaining the types of orchids. So many different colours and varieties. Answered all questions. Encouraged us to take pictures. A pleasant walk. Took about 30 minutes. After the tour we were treated to a tasty fruit punch. A great tour.

The visit to sleeping giant was a great visit, it's not far out of Nadi and you can do this with Rosie's tours which includes a number of other attractions. The orchards that grow there are spectacular, and so many different varieties. The walk is not difficult and manageable, there is a canteen of sorts there so getting a drink... More

Nice well kept garden but after all the recent rain was quite wet under foot and on a hillside so those have reduced mobility may find it a bit challenging.

Learn the story of this garden before you visit. It will add enjoyment to all the wonderful orchids and other flora.

Enjoyed seeing all the orchids. It was a longish walk up and down gentle hills but there are hammocks and swings if you need to rest. It was hot and sunny - take a hat. The refreshment (juice) after was delicious.

Well kept gardens and a nice place to visit. Not great for people who have difficulty walking as there is a few stairs and it is a bit steep. The gardens are lovely and well looked after.
