Having gone to the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, there is probably no other garden that could match them. Garden of the sleeping giant was apart of a package that included the mud pools, village and school visit and local markets through Valentine Tours. Had a package, worth the time and effort but by itself, you have to be... More

This was a good rainy day activity because the gardens are more lush in the rain. They provide umbrellas. They have a huge collection of orchids. Make sure you bring your camera.

A steamy day visit to these gardens saw us enjoying a truely remarkable garden with multiple species in bloom. The orchids were amazing and the ferns on the jungle walk were spectacular. At the end we received a very welcome and refreshing fruit juice. A must see for garden enthusiasts.

A fantastic piece of the world. Beautiful plants and structures. The birds and colour were very relaxing. When we finished the walk we were served a delightful guava nectar drink, in the shade. Just love the Fijian smiles.

We traveled to Garden of the Sleeping Giant by private car. A wonderful afternoon strolling through lush bush with an amazing array of plants. Not a thrill seekers spot, but I would thoroughly recommend

Saw some cool different flowers than what Ive seen before, but that was it. They had lovely free juice and nice toilets. But the park was not that impressive. Its a long trip from Nadi and its not worth the money.

This was one of the nicer places to visit in an area relatively devoid of tourist attractions. There was an excellent assortment of orchids on display, followed by a hilly path leading through a small, but interesting landscape. Worth visiting IF you are really into orchids, gardens and horticulture, but potentially a disappointment if you are not.
