I loved this place, I highly recommend you take the tram ride! It's so interesting to see such a great variety of fruits; pineapples, jack fruit, bananas, papayas, avocado, and many more. They even stop half way to show you how to open a coconut. They sell fresh fruit, the pineapple is to die for. They also have zip lines!

This is a relaxing, cool place to visit. Take the slow "train" ride around the plantation and then have lunch in the upmarket restaurant. Visit the soap makers shop, or browse the visitor centre. We bought some great artwork here.

Went to the plantation as part of a cruise excursion. this is a working, tourist plantation. they conduct small 'train' tours of the plantation and explain all the plants they grow. they also gave a coconut opening demo. the guide was great. good sized souvenir and gift shops. the shops are not your typical tourist ones, but sell locally made...

This is a nice place to visit. I took my aunt there and we really enjoyed the short tram ride. The young lady driving it was very informative and the grounds were beautiful. I also liked shopping in their store.

It is a nice place to walk around. Would not pay to do the activity's To pricey for what you get. The flowers are pretty and there is some shade. Some neat birds and fish to see

This was a beautiful place to wander around. Cheap for families, as it's free parking and entry to the plantation. We didn't take the "train" (cart pulled by a tractor) around the grounds - thought it was way too expensive at $20 per person. You can see pineapples growing in the little field beside the parking lot without the pricy... More

We wandered around the main area for a while before boarding the 'Train' (pulled by a petrol tractor). We were shown all round the farm where they were growing pineapples, coconuts, mangoes etc.

The grounds are beautiful and, like us, you're likely to stumble upon a festival of some kind. It's fun to wander around the grounds which have paved walkways and benches and fragrant flowers. Unfortunately, we didn't try the restaurant but the atmosphere looked excellent!

The train tour is a little spendy at $20 per person. However, we did learn a lot about agriculture. You can walk the grounds and there a few small boutique shops. There is a zip line which we did not do.
