The traditional lunch/umu is one of the only things to do on the island on a Sunday when everything else closes. I organised a pickup from my airbnb by contacting them via email a few weeks before my departure date. The lunch was delicious, the...More
Traveled to see the garden but unfortunately it was closed due to the heavy rains but still worth the ride. We went out snorkeling ( super nice) had a long visit with Haniteli who had lots of information to share with us. Surprise his daughter...More
Best part about this place was being able to have a relax on the beach! (Which can be surprisingly hard to find in Vava'u?!)
The food was quite tasty, especially the pig and the fish, though it was probably a little bit over priced for...More

The Garden of Eden is a real compliment and thank you for such lovely comments. It is always inspiring to receive comments from visitors who appreciate the owner's effort in developing 'Ene'io Botanical Garden since 1972. It is a one man's lifetime commitment and he...More

Thank you for your lovely comments of your recent experience with our Sunday Feast at 'Ene'io Botanical Garden. It is always a pleasure and very motivating for the staff to receive wonderful comments since Vava'u island is a very small island trying to develop it's...More
Not a garden that has pathways and not what you would say was worthwhile. Could not hear the guide speaking because of so many people on the tour from the cruise ship. After some time we got back on the buses and went to a...More

Thank you for your comments of your experience at ‘Ene’io Botanical Garden. Unfortunately, the garden has pathways and not sure whether you wanted cement pathways. The pathways in the garden is naturally with grass and the pathways are named according to the sponsor. We mowed...More
Personally I didn't find the Ene'io Botanical Garden, something special. A lot of trees, some very tall, among them a variety of Palm trees. The vegetation is dense but flowers are rare. There are signs that mark different paths in the Gardens and reduce the...More

Thank you Mina for your comments, and that you did not find ‘Ene’io Botanical Garden something special. While I appreciate your comments, we have had very wonderful people from many different countries adored and appreciated our garden by visiting us. Our very high end visitors...More
Also called Eneiid Botanical Garden in our literature, our cruise ship excursion combined this site with a beach stop and a traditional show. Our guide at the Garden was first-rate and the pace was slow enough that photographs were possible. Still, it may be best...More
'Ene'io is a magical spot on the island and a must visit destination! The owners, Lucy and Haniteli, are fantastic and offer so many amazing activities. It is a special treat to hear Haniteli's stories- he grew up in the village nearby, traveled all over...More
We, along with the 2 other people on our whale tour had an extra day in Tonga and decided to visit these gardens. We got very lucky because we didn’t realize we had to book in advance, and when we arrived, he had just one...More

I don't remember how much we paid. We had booked the excursion on the cruise ship and besides the garden there was a beach break and some local lunch and entertainment. Finally we got part of the money back as there was no swimming because of the high tide.
I didn't like the garden at all. I've seen marvel gardens around the world. This was absolutely nothing special and the mosquitoes are so many, you are given big leaves when you arrive, to push them away. Personally I wouldn't recommend it.

We normally advise cruisers to book our tour as provided on the cruise ship brochure to avoid disappointment. This is because our tour organised by the Travel Agent and P&O is our main focus on the day. We do not give individual tour on the same day as we are totally engaged with the group which ranges from 70 to 100 passengers in the morning and afternoon tour. However, if you want to come and enjoy the beach and join the either the morning or afternoon tour arranged by the cruise ship, then it is all right with us.
