“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

This was a surprise stop on our tour of the rainforest. Beautiful grounds and wonderful presentation of the art of Batik! They have plaques around describing the various flowers and trees. Beautiful area, beautiful atmosphere and I can't wait to go back someday.

“Historic Sugar can processing plant but go ip the hill to CariBatik!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Sugar was the ainstay of the Isalnd for a century, and the ruin at Romney Manor goves on an insight into the scal of one distillery.

More to the point of your visit is CariBatik, up the hill over the ruins. A must for quality, variety of pattern and value.

“Beautiful Grounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

The grounds and buildings of Romney Manor are immaculate and worthy of a stop while on St Kitts. Many photo opportunities and learning about life as it was and is on this island. Do not miss this stop on your tour!

“Batty for Batik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

The gardens and studio/store was great. Not enough time allowed here for my liking. Rain. Lots of one of a kind designs and colors.

“Interesting but not too much to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Romney Manor is where the Caribelle Batik factory is. The demo was more of an explanation than a demo of a piece from start to finish. Beautiful items available in the store.
