What a fabulous garden! Totally a surprise. It was our good fortune to visit Hunte's with Lothar Staeck, a renowned Naturalist and Amazon Basin expert, who explained each and every plant species to us, and who placed each of them in context. There is a vast variety of plants, curated and spaced beautifully. Soaring 150 year old palms dominate and... More

Lush, almost overwhelming gardens. Perfect setting for a novel or movie. Good way to connect with Barbadian flora and fauna. Interesting connection with the past.

This garden has made maximum use of it's natural bowl like location. The royal palms give the garden beautiful upward architecture. The paths twist through all levels of the garden allowing views from all directions and meaning you hardly notice the other visitors in the garden. The eye is drawn to the large landscape view and then lots of little... More

Visited here yesterday with friends - what a beautiful enlightening experience. The most lovely of walks around a well attended yet somehow naturally beautiful garden, literally a paradise of flora and fauna. Gentle classical music fills the nooks and crannies in this calm and peaceful oasis. Mr Hunte is a charming gentleman who, if you are lucky, sits with his... More

We were privileged to visit this incredibly beautiful garden while on a cruise with Holland America's Rotterdam. Our day with Glory Tours brought us to this wonderful place. We were lucky enough to have Mr. Hunte himself join us walking around the garden, explaining his planting plan. No matter which way you look, the view is gorgeous. Thank you Anthony,... More

Fabulous exotic gardens situated in a sink hole with the personal touch of Anthony Hunte himself to see you round and reminisce. Quite unique and highly recommend. As he says, bring a picnic and stay awhile. Highly recommend.

Well worth the 15 bajan dollar entry fee. The grounds are spectacular, full of prehistoric looking plants and trees. Birds everywhere. We saw a hummingbird! Mr Hunte and his team made us feel so welcome. It's a beautiful bus ride up too.

These gardens are so beautiful, full of birds and lizards. It is so peaceful just sitting there, hearing all of the noises from the birds and the classical music playing...very relaxing. It doesn't take long to explore this beautiful little place, I'd say an hour for the gardens an half an hour or so in the house if you want... More

This place is quite simple pure tranquility a must for everyone travelling to Barbados well worth the money $bds 30 and easily one is able to while away 2-3 hours. Many species of plant on offer too many to mention, and without doubt one must stop by and chat with Anthony Hunte on his veranda before you leave, go steady... More

Every year we visit Barbados and every year we visit Hunte's Gardens. If there was such a thing as the Garden of Eden, I think it would probably look like this. Added to that is Anthony Hunte, a real character and always at hand to share a story and some rum. By far the best attraction on the Island. Highly... More
