  • I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven in this beautiful garden. I love drawing and watercolour painting and I could have stayed there from dawn to dusk as there was so much to see and such inspiration in the imaginative planting of Barbados's beautiful flowers and foliage plants and huge palm trees. To make it even more relaxing classical music was played at just the right sound level to make you feel totally relaxed. Could be a bit difficult getting around if you get puffed out easily as there are a lot of ups and downs and the paths are narrow. However there are little resting places dotted around to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds. I loved it and if I'm lucky enough to be able to go there again I will stay all day or even a few more days.
  • Beautiful gardens! After the wonderful stroll, the very friendly owner, Anthony has a small "cafe" where I had some of the best carrot cake and rum I've had. Anthony makes sure to talk to everyone who stops by the cafe/gift shop, very welcoming and kind. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting or living in Barbados.
  • The highlight of my trip to Barbados. Of all the islands I visited, this was the one spot I couldn't miss. I loved the gardens. It even rained while we were there and that made it even more awesome. Lush tropical rain forest. :D
  • Highlight of our trip! Such beautiful gardens. A very relaxing enjoyable few hours. Enjoyed looking at all the beautiful plants with the classical music played in the background. Truly impressive. We liked finding out about how the gardens came to be and how they are maintained. Really enjoyed meeting the very friendly and lovely owner and creator Anthony over a drink and some cake. We bought a couple of really pretty mugs and homemade marmalade for gifts for family back at home. The whole souvenir shop was really lovely. Lots of beautiful bits at reasonable prices too. We felt so relaxed wandering around and sitting on the sofas chatting to Anthony and the other visitors who walked round the garden. We also liked meeting little Flora (a sweet and calm rescue dog!). We saw a family of green monkeys too which was a nice end. All in all a lovely day! Thanks a lot Anthony and team. We will be back next time we’re in Barbados ! Thank you
  • Amazing retreat. Owner can be found at the building serving drinks and chatting to people and made us very welcome. Kids loved his cat and dog. Beautiful garden. Could spend here all day!
