Loved visiting the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, the Orchids were lovely and it was a nice leisurely walk through the tropical gardens. A nice touch to have a fresh juice provided and a sit down in their reception area after your walk. I would...More

This is a must see in Nadi. Probably the best attraction. It’s easily accessible by rental car or taxi. The road is rough but ok if you take it slow. The garden itself is fantastic. It has good walks and nice relax places. You can...More

Lovely gardens with a lake, lots of steps and walkways so you need to take care. Not suitable for anyone with limited mobility. Lots of extraordinary colourful plants. Very nice place to wander.

A nice place for a shaded walk but not a lot else. The walkway for the most part is a wooden walkway making it easy enough for most. The walkway takes you past some orchids for about a 100 metres before leading you up into...More
