We visited this garden as part of a larger tour. The gardens were so pretty! Seeing the orchids was nice. I didn't know there were so many varieties of orchids. We were with other people who wanted to go through the gardens quickly, but there were many paths we would have walked along given the time. But the main path... More

This was a terrific little place which I did not think would be as interesting as it was. A vast array of flowers and orchids it had something to interest everyone and a quaint little walkway through a jungle path. Our guide explaining the flowers seemed a little disinterested and powered through the walk. However the plants themselves and the... More

Lovely, peaceful place. Swing on the giant swing, walk through jungle or relax in a hammock. Afterwards, have a refreshing fruit cocktail in the Reception area.

Garden of the Sleeping Giant takes you to the real nature of Fiji. I was fairly impressed with the work which has been done to beautify the surrounding. The highlights are the different types of extraordinary plants and HAMMOCKS in the middle of the forest – Loved this out of all! The team has maintained the place elegantly. Would prefer... More

Quiet, cool , lovely and expansive orchid display. No crowds. Could easily spend a couple of hours here. We went as part of a tour but could just take a taxi. Mud baths nearby also. Entry fees apply but not exhibit ant. Make sure orchids are in bloom.

I visited the Garden of the Sleeping Giant with my family this morning, and it was one of the most wonderful things we have done in Fiji! The staff was very friendly, and the garden was huge and also relaxing :).

Make the effort to head over to the Gardens for a quiet stroll. Beautiful orchids will reward you. Nice cold drink provided.

We visited this garden as part of a tour of Nadi so only had about an hour here but it was well worth the visit. We began with the most delicious icy cold orange and mango drink before heading off into the garden. Along the path we were shown many orchids and other tropical flowers and then wended our way...

We had a lovely walk through the gardens, as soon as we got out of our car you could sense the calm of this place. Gorgeous orchids etc and a nice place to relax on the hammocks & have a bite to eat after going on the giant swings
