Very beautiful garden filled with orchids and native plants. It was good having a guide to walk through the gardens with explaining the various plants.
Would have been great if there was a coffee shop or restaurant to sit and enjoy the view but the...More
Not my favorite thing to do. Fairly remote area. Beautiful landscape to/from this attraction. If you love orchids, you will enjoy. A couple of nice areas to sit and relax along the trail. The wedding arch and the fish pond.

Fiji has recovered from cyclone Winston, which was in February 2016. I don't know why the gsgfiji website is not currently available, but there can be power can cable issues at times. One option is to contact fiji.travel to see if they can provide more information. We recently spent two weeks there and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The Fijian people are among the friendliest in the world.
Hi We're leaving for Fiji in 2 weeks (can't wait)!. We staying at the Outrigger on the Coral Coast for a few nights followed by a few days at the Hilton in Denarau. I have been reading this forum on things to do. We are travelling with a 18 month old. How easy / hard is it to go to places like the Garden of the Sleeping Giant and The Sigatoka Sand Dunes with a toddler? Any tips would be great! Thanks

what to buy/shopping, what to see (4 Replies)
I will be in Port Denarau from 8a-6p. I will be on a cruise ship. How far is Nadi from where the ship docks? The ship offers a tour to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant but it seems kind of pricey. The ships tour allows some time to shop in Nadi, but I would rather do it on my own time instead of being rushed. Would it be possible that the tour is offered at the pier? I saw something about Vuda Lookout Tour which includes the gardens and a visit to a village. Are the gardens worth seeing? ...More

Hi, You could definitely hire a taxi to take you to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant- the entrance fee is very reasonable. I really enjoy it- have been a few times. There is an orchid garden, then the rest of it is a walk through lush vegetation- some of it tamed (Japanese style pond) some not. I'm not sure if the recent rain/floods have effected it. You could then go to Nadi on your own. (Your taxi driver will wait for you at GSG.) I always buy sarongs or sulus- they weigh nothing,...More
