Just a couple of kilometers into the hills from Anse Royal is the Le Jardin Du Roi Spice Garden which challenges the Botanic Gardens for variety and interest. Set in about 80 acres of land, you could spend the entire day here. It even has...More

We wanted a nice Spice garden tour but did not get it. Really like to know how spices are cultivated, if somebody can help us smell and taste but did not get that properly.

The Spice Garden was not as enchanting as the ones we've seen in Kerala. While yes there were nice spices, but we found the tours not as informative and would have loved to get more info on how the spices are grown and cultivated.

the road up is not for the faint hearted. Throughly enjoyed our walk around the gardens, best to wear trainers as the terrain is quite rough.

I really wanted to like this Spice Garden, but it just wasn't worth the money. But if you have nothing else to do, then yeah. It's a go. You pay and they give you a map you can't read and you find your way around....More
