The Garden of Eden!! A really beautiful place!!! The owner of the garden is really inspiring an good person. He put a lot of time, passion and knowledge in his garden and you can see and feel that!!!

What a delight to explore the gardens with the owner Haniteli who has been so dedicated to collecting an amazing array of plants over many years. Unfortunately we were only in Neiafu for a short time and were not able to experience the delicious Sunday buffet.

The Botanical Garden is so beautiful and all my friends love it too. Go on Sunday for the Tongan Feast. An absolute must when you visit Vava’u.

Very informative as the owner takes you through the gardens explaining all he has done over his lifetimes work.

Had a great time at the botanical gardens (remember insect repellent). We then walk 5 minutes to the beach and it was lovely, had culture show and coconut water and fruit, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Tonga.
