  • Hunte's Gardens is one of the highlights of our trip to Barbados 🇧🇧! It is absolutely gorgeous, magnificent and inspiring! It is not only the abundance of tropical species which make the gardens so unique but it is the garden design and the way the beauty of all these plants has been presented and enhanced. There are plenty of sheltered areas where you can sit and enjoy all the beauty that surrounds you. You can spot wildlife as well - humming birds, birdies and endemic lizards 🦎 which obviously adore to pose for photos. You can enjoy a cold drink in the cafe (wonderful interior design) and have a chat with the owner of this most magnificent place. There is one thing that I'd like to suggest. It will be a good idea if seats or benches were placed at the entrance /exit of the gardens. We had to wait for our taxi and there wasn't where to sit. At the same time inside the gardens there are so many chairs and benches of various designs. This is just a little tip.
  • This is no ordinary garden. What a magical place! You feel somehow transported to another world, one of beauty, colour and tranquillity. There's something of interest around every corner, and the little hideaway at the very top was a lovely quirky surprise. The tea room is simple but lovely, the chap there incredibly helpful and the lemon and ginger was the perfect refreshment. Some interesting local craft mementoes to purchase too. We all loved it - even our two teenagers. Highly recommended.
  • 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.
  • Truly magical. If you love tropical plants you will never want to leave. Cash only entrance fee, 30Bd$, well worth it
