    These are the most amazing gardens - beautiful, imaginative, tranquil and romantic - with winding paths leading to seated areas to view the exotic palms and flowers and listen to the birds tweeting. A...  more »

    Lovely, well-designed gardens, not only for plant lovers. My wife thought they were "the best thing she'd seen in her life". I was impressed with how much work Mr Hunte and his crew must have put into...  more »

    Spent 2 hours here. Had a great time. Is a sanctuary. I took so many photos of stunning flowers and plants. Even spotted a monkey and plenty of lizards. Enjoyed a drink in Anthony Hunte's house afterwards. Fantastic signage around the whole island (as previously stated). Parking was sparse as there were a couple of coaches parked, but a lady attended to us quickly and guided us on a space to park in. Would recommend this for everyone visiting Barbados.

    Hunte's Gardens is a lengthy (by Bajan standards) taxi ride away from the busy southern tip of the island, but it is well worth it. The lush sights and sounds are absolutely refreshing for those looking to get away from the hot Barbados sun for a couple of hours. Mr. Hunte's hospitality is world-class, greeting every visitor personally and chatting with them on his terrace after their tour. Highly recommended.

    We had a wonderful time visiting Hunte's Gardens and were especially pleased to meet the great man himself ...especially so as my wife had mistakingly assumed he was the same age as the property (100yrs plus) and therefore dead and gone. But thankfully he's alive, fit and well and a wonderful man to meet. Whilst working hard as head gardener, waiter and bottle washer he also provides a wonderful insight to his creating the gardens. He describes with great candour the good times and bad times he experienced during the many years of hard work creating these beautiful gardens that have been visited and enjoyed by people from all corners of the world, including many famous celebrities and Royalties (sit and enjoy a cold beer in the very same seat Helen Mirren sat it) A must visit that you will never regret and will remember forever.

    Heaven. The most beautiful place ever? Pictures on google do this place absolutely no justice! Must go. Take bathseba bus (out of city) Walking there is brutal/not suggested (Bus ride back (to the city) is like a roller coaster!) HOLD ON TIGHT!

    Hunte's Gardens is the most spectacular attraction in Barbados that I have seen in the 20 years that I have been coming to beautiful Barbados. The slogan of "most enchanting place" is exactly how I would describe it! Beautiful flowers, majestic palms and vegetation all expertly orchestrated to show off the beauty of Barbados nature! It's even mystical at the end of the day ... a little bit of Eden. The host is charming and very very hospitable. Mr. Hunte's 150 year old house is lovely and very unique. Go for an afternoon of breathtaking beauty and peace! Mr. Hunte well done and many thanks for sharing your "gem of Barbados" with us!
