  • We hired a taxi to give us a tour of the island and this was one of the stops he made for us. The gardens are simply beautiful with several different types of palm trees as well as other local fauna. We also learned a little history related to the process of batik, which uses wax and dyes to make beautifully patterned fabrics, and picked up a couple items in the gift shop. I would tag this as a "must-see" when you visit the island.
  • Breathtaking! The fabrics are so vibrant and Beautiful! The items are pricey compared to the cheap places at other stops, but it is great qaualiy, and it helps the local economy.
  • Beautiful place to visit, in an elevated position on the island. Lovely Batik products for sale in the store.
  • We visited here as part of our Island tour. Very well kept gardens and plants.
  • There are gardens if you like plants, however, the products made and sold are way overpriced. Its mainly about the trees an shrubs around the estate...
