Even though the garden & nature around is very beautiful we were disappointed about missing & broken signs, little maintenance and little upkeep of the gardens. Most trees were not flowering, looked infected and the rainforest trail had no signs at all. No guided tours...More

We didn’t eat at the restaurant, but visiting the spice garden definitely wasn’t worth the price of admission. We were given a brochure with a map and numbered list of plants and then vague nod in the direction of where the trail started. I’m not...More

One of our highlights from our trip to the Seychelles. We loved every minute exploring and learning about the different spices, medicinal plants, fruits and endemic coco der mer. We even saw cotton flowers for the first time. Lovely 5 Stars

Excellent walks and plant descriptions, good views and good cafe and small shop. 2 km up a steep narrow hill from bus stop, so go by car or taxi or tour.

We visited with 2 small kids - who weren’t terribly interested to be honest! Prams are not possible so be prepared to carry little ones. The gardens were beautiful and interesting with great views down to the ocean. There is a small cafe - we...More

We've been to the Seychelles a few times, and every time we make sure to come to Jardin du Roi. To me it feels like the real Seychelles, away from the artificial glamour of the resorts. The old colonial architecture is simple and charming. The...More

Just a couple of kilometers into the hills from Anse Royal is the Le Jardin Du Roi Spice Garden which challenges the Botanic Gardens for variety and interest. Set in about 80 acres of land, you could spend the entire day here. It even has...More
