This garden is only a 15-20 minute drive from Nadi airport and well worth a visit. You can drive there in a two wheel vehicle but the last section of road is gravel. Nestled at the base of the mountain known as the Sleeping Giant, this garden is a photographers dream. Filled with hundreds of species of orchids, palms and... More

Sleeping giant is very relaxing and the orchids are a delight if you love flowers, theres 2000 varieties of orchids though not all may be in bloom on ur visit. September is a... More

We visited the garden first thing in the morning (8.30am) and thoroughly enjoyed our walk. The rainforest section appealed to us more than the orchids, but that was just because we're not really 'orchid lovers'. We loved the baby frogs in the lily ponds! The complimentary tropical drink after our walk was most welcome also. Overall highly recommended.

A group of us visited the gardens and had a very relaxing time wandering through the gardens known for their Orchids. The orchids were not as prolific as one would find in Singapore but the layout of the gardens is interesting. The walkway is advertised as suitable for wheelchairs but I would not want to have the task of pushing... More

Nice walk through the gardens. Some really interesting plants (leaves and flowers). Slow drive there on the gravel road as the driver didn't reach 20 km/hr. Were given a really refreshing iced fruit drink on our return from the walk which was wonderful.

My wife and I took my father and mother who were visiting from the Gold Coast in Australia. I don't remember the exact price as it was earlier this year but it was over fj$70 for 4 adults (does not give a local price). It's a nice garden granted, but who pays that sort of money to walk around a... More

Enjoyed our tour. Guide was knowledgable and pace of tour was slow enough for us to stop to take photos and to not get worn out in the heat. Great walk and drink provided at the end.

We found this to be a lovely stopoff on our daytrip. The gardens were a lovely tropical walk and had lots of nice orchids on show. You could spend as much or as little time as you like relaxing and looking. It was a little warm and humid in comparison to elsewhere. I'm assuming because it's tucked in under the... More
