We visited the garden as part of a tour. We were given a guide at the start who explained the various orchids & plants to us. We then had time to walk around the gardens ourselves which was relaxing. A drink was also offered to us at the end of the walk.

We went on a very humid day! Our tour guide approached us immediately and escorted us with a narration of the types of plants and flowers. We hoped for birds, but didn't really see any that we could take pictures of. There is juice at the end of the visit.

This is a beautiful place to visit in Nadi. Tranquil and relatively cool, with lots of shade. The gardens are home to a large number of an amazing variety of orchids of many different colours. You can get a guide to take you round, or as we did you can walk round by yourselves and enjoy the peacefulness. Has a... More

I really enjoyed my visit, despite being wasted from my long flight en route to Auckland. I decided to enlist a guide rather than wait 8 hrs at the airport. He took me here and elsewhere to places I'd otherwise never have known existed. Took short breaks on the nice rope hammocks. They have a cat named Obama--no lethal drones... More

We visited the Orchid Garden as part of Our tour with Valentine Tours and were really amazed with how beautiful this garden was. The place was neatly looked after and just so relaxing. Would love to be back and next time will definitely be a full day.

This garden was created by the old actor RAYMOND BURR of Perry Mason fame and is absolutely stunning! If you are an Orchid lover, this is a Must See. However, I do have one problem with the garden. It is a huge area in the hills that require a lot of walking. That's not so bad in its self but... More

Just loved these beautiful gardens in such a stunning setting. Allow sufficient time to wander around - particularly if it is as hot as it was on my visit in March. Although a refreshing drink was provided as part of the ticket price it would have been nice to have some cafe facilities for something to eat as well and... More

We enjoyed our time here and took many photos of the lovely flowers. Well worth the visit and we can recommend it to all visitors to Nadi and Denarau.
