Full spectrum of trees and plants to experience where all our spices grow; was very informative and interesting tour; floristic garden with nice ocean view; must-see on Mahe Island

First the positives, the food, simple salads utilising the crops from the garden were excellent. The views over the bay were fantastic. What’s not to like.... sadly many things... I fear that the gardens have seen much better days. Being perhaps too fair, maybe we...More

I really wanted to like this Spice Garden, but it just wasn't worth the money. But if you have nothing else to do, then yeah. It's a go. You pay and they give you a map you can't read and you find your way around....More

A bit of a surprise package. Not just spice gardens in the jungle. An interesting collection of animals to keep the children amused. Cafe and souvenirs as well.

The garden offers almost all original and imported plants that grow on the Seychelles. So you can get a good overview over the local flora. The signage could be better, many trees are not signposted. But the ladies at the reception and in the cafe...More

If in the area it’s worth a visit. The road leading to Le Jardin Du Rio Spice Garden is very steep and one lane. The do have a restroom, gift shop, and area to get a drink.
