Had a free half day in Nadi before heading to the Yasawa Islands so opted to check this place out. It was a beautiful lush garden and was very peaceful for the first half hour until several groups showed up. There were multiple secondary trails to explore the area however they were not very well signposted. Good place to spend an hour or two if you like tropical gardens.

These gardens are beautiful. There are a few short walks in the jungle and to a look out and its a great place for a picnic. Look out for the hammocks in the trees.
We enjoyed a few pleasant hours here.

What an awesome place to visit. Nice and cool on a hot day. A refreshing complimentary drink at the end. Take the extra time to check out the views from the lookout. Just stunning. Since the hurricane we’ve been told it was not as good but we still saw plenty of flowers and enjoyed our visit.

We went here first thing in the morning (9am) & no one else but us there (3 adults). It is a beautiful peaceful place to visit & admire orchids & forest. It’s about 30 mins from Nadi town centre. Mud pools close by & with a visit. Good half day combination.

It was not quite what I had in mind, but was still a lovely way to spend half an hour. Lots of interesting orchid types & a surprise "fun" garden complete with 'tree-huggers'. I wouldn't necessarily pay to visit but if the garden is part of another activity I'd definitely suggest visiting.
