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

I'm not much of a garden person nor into walking for a long time in the heat but this was a nice experience . I was able to get good pictures with all the greenery and apparently you can have weddings there which I would totally do if I had known a long time ago. At the end a nice... More

This garden was originally started by Raymond Burr but is now owned by someone else. Our guide took us through the gardens showing us various species of orchids, lilies and other native plants. The scenery is beautiful and landscaped nicely. There are even frogs in the lily pond. Refreshments are available. Not a strenuous walk at all.

My mother and I visited the garden on our most recent trip to Fiji. It was very beautiful, lovely and big! We o my stayed a little while since we hired a private car and wanted to spend more time in the mud looks but what we were able to see was worth it for us
