Rain Forest botanical paradise: the flowers and plants in this garden will take one's breath away, fantastic views from hill top looking out east over the Atlantic and the 'Scotland District of Barbados, benches for resting in secluded shady spots, the peace that one wishes, missing from one's work life is here. Worth more than money, relax and restore the soul...

Lush botanical garden with lots of tropical species, winding, but easy walkways. Couldn't stop taking pictures. Very nice staff.

Yes! We have an indoor/outdoor cafe and you can relax to the sound of the birds. There is also a nice view off the balcony into the garden.
