Pleasant visit to these pretty gardens while waiting for my onward flight to the US. MANY gorgeous orchids throughout. Go early because it does get warm and it's of course quite humid. You will get a tropical drink at the end that is ridiculously sweet but you can purchase a bottle of water (Fiji of course) instead. Recommend spending time... More

Went as part of a tour and enjoyed it, I personally wouldn't have gone if it wasn't part of a tour. Gardens are beautiful and well maintained, staff as lovely and knowable of plant life. Very Humid and mosquitos around. Take you bug repellent with.

Lovely garden with beautiful orchids and walks on a meandering wooden platform through the garden and trees. Very peaceful and worth visiting if you are into plants and gardens with a refreshing drink served to you at the end of the walk.

If you are into botanical garden, then you might like this place. They give you a free drink (juice) after you have walked around.

We had a 7 hour layover and asked the info center in the airport for transportation recommendations. They referred us to a tourist booth in the airport that set us up with a ride. We went to the mud bath for about 2 hour and this garden. It was nice to walk around. Probably not worth paying transport just to... More

Stunning gardens and so peaceful and tranquil. This is a must to visit evening you aren't a garden enthusiast. Even our young kids had a great time.

We had a pleasant stroll looking at the amazing orchids and other flowers and foliage. It was a good way to spend 1+ hour. If you have the time, it is worth the visit.

The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a nature walk. There are a few fun things throughout the grounds to keep things interesting, like hammocks and swings. If you like botanical gardens, this is for you. If you find them boring, skip this attraction and go to the zip line (nearby) instead for your dose of nature and adrenalin in... More

Entrance is FJD18. There's several different types of orchids in the early section of the walk, which was a main attraction for me. The rest of the garden is nice but not overwhelming. On the whole, is a reasonable way to see several varieties of jungle plants, but I wouldn't make a huge effort to see it. It is close... More
