We did a stop here on a tour. The grounds are just gorgeous. It is a beautiful location and great for picture taking. The hand crafted batik is very interesting on how it is done. I would highly recommend anyone staying on St. Kitts to do a visit here!

This was a great experience. They showed us how the art was done and the different stages it takes to complete it. The staff was very sweet and friendly. The gardens were beautiful around the manor. I loved the gift shop too.

Anyone who loves fabric and appreciates hand died work will love this place. Having tried to do my own Batiking in the past (and not very well) it's amazing to see the intricate process. They have a lot of selection of shirts and other items make from the fabric as well as YARDAGE!!!! We were there on a cruise ship... More

I hadn't heard about Caribelle Batik before our open taxi-bus tour stopped here on our island tour. Set in lovely gardens within Romney Manor. We went around in about 20 minutes because we had to get back to our tour bus but you could spend longer in the gardens and gift shop - there are a lot of items on... More

Well-made fabrics, but a little outside of my normal interests. It is interesting to walk the grounds and learn about the former sugar plantation.

We stopped here as part of a full island tour and found it to be quite interesting. The grounds were beautiful. There are women in the process of making batiks that show you their tools and explain the steps they take to make these beautiful pieces of art. Outside, there were many batiks hanging on clothes lines - a very... More

Worth a visit as this is situated in small but beautiful gardens, and access for walks through Rainforest. Watch Ladies processing the material and making patterns inches away, and describing how it all works. Very clever, and also a time consuming, process which might explain why it is so expensive. However, quality always comes at a price.

Women showed how batik is made and the seeps that are taken. it's a slow process. I would call this a cottage industry designed for tourists. Everything they make is for sale, My wife was a buyer (surprise! surprise!). The entire process is interesting with colorful results .
