Unfortunately I had a short visit to Romney Manor, but fortunately, I got there! This oasis was about a 25 minute ride from the cruise ship port. The taxi ride was expensive $40 and I almost didn't go. But my driver was great, and I was so thrilled to see this spot. The gardens were exquisite - the birdlife abundant - and the trees extraordinary!

I shopped at Carabelle Batik while there. The salespeople were helpful,but there wasn't as much of a selection as I'd expected from the online site.

The grounds of the manor were fantastic. It had a wide selection of plants and flowers. The 400 year old tree is worth the stop alone! You also get to see how batik is made in the Caribelle Batik section which is housed inside. They also have lovely items made in/from batik that make great souvenirs.

What a great place to go for a short visit, experience the beautiful gardens and do some shopping for Caribelle Batik. The gardens are very nice, easy to get there from the city.

TIP: You will see the biggest tree and probably oldest tree ever.

The setting of Romney Manor is beautiful and worth a visit. Caravelle Batike provides a short demonstration sure to entertain kids, if only for a few minutes. Large selection of attractive shirts, dresses, etc. A good souvenir from a Caribbean vacation

Romney Manor is beautiful and the Batik artists are so friendly. Be sure to stop here and get some photos, buy some beautiful Batik artwork and have a moment of reflection down by the 400 yr old tree!
