It's a very small park and there are not many orchids either. We were very disappointed. After a long flight we took a taxi there (there's no other way to get there) from the airport, walked around a little bit and within half an hour we were done. It was very expensive (9 EUR) for such a short visit. We... More

Best forest I've ever seen. It's so peaceful, natural, colourful and just well worth the look. If you love nature this is it at its finest, It will not disappoint.

Very nice garden but depends on if you like garden or not. We spent 30 minutes in the garden only. Enough for walk around and photo talking. Not sure if it is worth

Such a beautiful garden to visit - FJ$18 entry. The tropical flowers, especially the orchids, are spectacular. Walking through the rainforest part is very relaxing. A few hammocks are placed strategically around the garden - nice to take a book and relax on a hammock. Just be careful on the wooden walkway and steps - was a bit nervous the... More

These are beautiful gardens especially if you love orchids. The gardens do need maintenance and there was little evidence of continual upkeep. Beautiful spots for photographs. Fabulous big lounge to relax in but very few people. Once again a tourist attraction not reaching its full potential.

absolutely amazing, this was my second visit & it still amazed me how they get so many beautiful orchids to grow in the one spot. The refreshing drink that awaits you when you return is just amazing.

This place is really stunning. We have been twice, 7 years apart and both times the gardens have been beautifully looked after and presented. It's a tropical plant haven for all gardeners and flower lovers. Obama the black and white cat is also very welcoming.

While the name of the place may frighten you of the place owned by the giants, it is actually set at the base of the mountain well known as sleeping giant thus the name. Apart from one of the largest collection of orchids in fiji which you will admire ,the place is very relaxing due to its quietness,with occasional sounds... More
