If you're going to Paradise Island I would definitely recommend going to these gardens. They are magnificent, beautiful, and breathtaking. Honestly, there are no words to describe how they looked. If you could, get married there. 10/10

It is a 15 mins walk from Comfort Suites. If you are traveling with toddlers, either go for the walk in the afternoon or take strollers. We choose to walk there in the morning right after breakfast and it was HOT even though it was end of November. My older one got very tired and requested to be carried. The... More

It's a 10-15 walks from Atlantis Marina village. This garden is nice and quiet, however its a private property. "No trespassing" signs posted everywhere. No security guard was onsite. But we looked at the garden from the street curbs only, didn't walk inside.

I saw this attraction on Tripadvisor and we went while on Paradise Island in November, 2016. However, there are signs on the property that say "no trespassing" and "One & Only Club" guests only. No one stopped us from walking around the grounds, but we only stayed for a short time because we felt like we were not supposed to... More

This is a peaceful, quite area and just a short walk from the hotels on Paradise Island. We went three times during the week we were on the island. Once at night. It's a nice walk and something to do. Certainly worth the time it would take to get there.

These gardens are beautiful, the Cloisters at the top are so beautiful and a short walk from Comfort Suites or Atlantis. The no trespassing signs dismay visitors, but according to security, you can visit up to the lowest garden area, where then there is a private property sign.

We're staying just up the road and saw this on tripadvisor. As it's on the way to Cabbage Beach we decided to stop off en route. The One and Only Beach Club is currently closed for refurbishment but we parked next to the security gate and walked the few metres to the entrance on Paradise Island Drive. The gardens extend...

This was a 5-10 minute walk past the Comfort Suites Paradise Island, located within the currently closed grounds of the One and Only Ocean Club. The grounds span both sides of Paradise Island Drive. We walked around for about 10 minutes, and encountered 3 different photo shoots. Then, someone approached us and told us the area was closed so we... More

Despite Gerald's review below, it is not closed to the public. I was there in November as well, and you can still walk from the road to the water's edge, and you can also walk from the road on the other side all the way up to the amazing pool. The rest is closed until February as they're cleaning up... More

Went to visit it this month, NOV., 2016, and found it is now private and owned by a beach club. Looked great from the sidewalk, and they were cleaning up the gardens after the Hurricane.
