We went here as part of a cruise tour. Our guide, Thenford Grey, pointed out all of the vegetation which was beautiful. The ladies showed how they hand dye fabrics and there's an amazing gift shop with their work.

When we read about Romney Manor we thought that it was an old "manor" home with a batik store/factory on the grounds. It is NOT. It is some gardens with a batik factory and store. There is no manor house that we could find. Imagine having to take a taxi or tour, pay an additional $3 per person for the... More

We were on a tour group and only had a relatively short time at the locale. It was an interesting stop. In addition to the gardens, there is a batik store with all sorts of batik products for sale

We stopped at Romney Manor on the way to a rainforest hike. It was an unexpected bonus! The gardens were lovely and many of the plants were well labeled. Romney Manor is also home to Caribelle Batik Factory. Inside we observed demonstrations on how batik is made and then perused extensive store of batik items. I was able to buy... More

The views from the estate are very lovely. There is also a tour of a small Batik factory and the opportunity to purchase their goods.

Never really been one for this type of thing however the whole place was worth a visit. The gardens were well kept and the batik area was informative. The ladies there were more than willing to take time to explain how they made things and the gift shop had a wide range of souvenirs at varying prices. Always good to... More
