  • A beautiful garden overlooking the sea. We did a self guided tour that was very informative. This beauty tucked away makes you feel like it is a secret garden with a beautiful pond, rare plant...

  • We did a self guided tour following the trails and map. It is such a beautiful place, we really loved it here and found so much to see and photograph, including a beautiful Giant Golden Orb Spider...

  • The place is quiet and it gives a peace of mind when you enter the place. You can download their app for audio tour. I just love the big swing and spices corner. However, it could be improved. Some of the information signs were not related to the plants next to it. And some of it is showing fruits on the information signs, but you can't find any fruits on the tree. Ex: cocoa tree. City ppl like me expect to see a real cocoa fruits but the fact is I'm too busy finding which one is cocoa tree instead. Not to mention some of the plants were dead but no replacement. Not really well maintained, maybe due to the pandemic, I guess?
  • Lots of plants and lots of mosquitos. Some plants are there some are not. Got a nice big swing and a fish spa. RM25 entrance fee was a little steep.
