Our family had a day to spend in Nadi before continuing our journey to Toberua Island. We took a taxi to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, which was only about 15 minutes from... read more

It could be not too many sight seeing spots in Nadi so Garden of the Sleeping Giant may come to your things to do in Google search Fiji result. Personally don't think too special I prefer stay or chill in the resort. Next visit or even first visit I'd skip.

When you enter, you can't take photos.. and you can't even take a photo inside the temple itself unless you're a worshipper or the same religion. You have to pay fjd$5 each to enter

Our family had a day to spend in Nadi before continuing our journey to Toberua Island. We took a taxi to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, which was only about 15 minutes from the Novotel where we were staying. We arrived in the heat of the mid afternoon but the lush garden sheltered us from the sun. We thoroughly... More

This garden is only a 15-20 minute drive from Nadi airport and well worth a visit. You can drive there in a two wheel vehicle but the last section of road is gravel. Nestled at the base of the mountain known as the Sleeping Giant, this garden is a photographers dream. Filled with hundreds of species of orchids, palms and... More

Sleeping giant is very relaxing and the orchids are a delight if you love flowers, theres 2000 varieties of orchids though not all may be in bloom on ur visit. September is a... More

We visited the garden first thing in the morning (8.30am) and thoroughly enjoyed our walk. The rainforest section appealed to us more than the orchids, but that was just because we're not really 'orchid lovers'. We loved the baby frogs in the lily ponds! The complimentary tropical drink after our walk was most welcome also. Overall highly recommended.

A group of us visited the gardens and had a very relaxing time wandering through the gardens known for their Orchids. The orchids were not as prolific as one would find in Singapore but the layout of the gardens is interesting. The walkway is advertised as suitable for wheelchairs but I would not want to have the task of pushing... More

Nice walk through the gardens. Some really interesting plants (leaves and flowers). Slow drive there on the gravel road as the driver didn't reach 20 km/hr. Were given a really refreshing iced fruit drink on our return from the walk which was wonderful.
