Owner description: Wander through the Papillote Tropical Gardens. Flowering jade vines of an unbelievable shade of blue, huge pink or red ginger blossoms, aroids, begonias, bromeliads,ferns, indigenous orchids and heliconias form sumptuous compositions to tempt artists, botanists, gardeners and photographers. Frogs and other creatures live contentedly with 30 kinds of bird and 19 species of butterfly amongst hot and cold waterfalls and soothing hot mineral pools.

The Papillote Tropical Gardens are a site everyone must see when traveling to the beautiful country of Dominica. These magnificent gardens span a total of 4 acres and include a variety of striking and beautiful plants ranging from fire gingers to exotic ferns. Jumping into one of four hot springs after viewing the gardens is a great way to relax and enjoy the beauty of the mountains and environment around you. And after a long day of swimming and touring the gardens you could eat and rest in Anne’s five star restaurant and resort. I personally recommend the dasheen puffs and fish wrapped in banana leaves; it is so tasty you will want to eat it every day! The staff and owner, Mrs. Anne Jno Baptiste, are very friendly and provide all the services you need to have a great stay or visit to the gardens, hot springs, and restaurant! Overall I must say this is truly the most amazing place I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.

The Papillote Tropical Gardens are just exquisite... you can see an unbelievable variety of plants ranging from orchids to an assortment of fruit trees. I found the gardens to be wonderfully set against the backdrop of a waterfall on the grounds. There were many hummingbirds around the gardens which made my afternoons at Papillote just delightful. If you get adventurous, you can make your way around the garden at night.... towards the waterfall you can see fireflies which makes your night become magical!
