“Don't waste your money”
Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Pretty much just a nature walk around a fenched in area. The odd butterfly here and there. If you are a bit older certainly don't go because there is a lot of walking up a steep area.

“Very nice for children”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

The garden is very small but you can see lots of butterflies and even, with some luck to hold them. The kids had a very good time and the tickets were chip (200 baht per adult plus free drink and 1 hour kayaking on the beach in front of the garden)
The cons are that there were no explanations about the butterflies and their life cycle.

“Not really worth going our of your way”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

It seems this "attraction" is linked to the Centara resort across the road :Vouchers given on entry certainly give you a tour as you'll need to go all the way down to the beach to redeem them...And then climb all the way back!!!
The garden itself also involves lots of very uneven steps to climb to the highest view point.
We went on a hot cloudy day and it was like being in a sauna, nice enough but we did not see that many butterflies (actually saw far more amazing ones in the garden of our holiday rental) and did not feel it was worth the detour.

“Tranquil beauty”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We were extremely glad to have visited this beautiful garden, after almost being put off by lukewarm reviews. Having a car, we figured it was worth exploring, and we were not disappointed. The place was absolutely teeming with amazing butterflies; I know others have said they didn't see many, so perhaps it varies with weather or season. The grounds themselves are gorgeous, with many amazing plants, and there were some interesting beetles and other insects on display in glass cases near the top of the garden. Our visit was cut a little short by a heavy shower, so we didn't get a chance to check out the bees. Nonetheless, we adored what we saw, and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Koh Samui.
