There are many beautiful gardens in Barbados but Huntes Gardens really is something special. Located in the lush hills of St Joseph, just 20-30 minutes drive from Holetown. On a gentle stroll around this enchanting garden, all five senses are indulged: touch, sound, smell, sight and taste!
When you enter the garden, stand still for a moment. Close your eyes momentarily and experience everything that surrounds you. Feel the Caribbean warmth. Maybe a gentle breeze is blowing softly against your skin. Bird song calls to your ear like a gentle bell among the classical music that wafts magically though the garden. Breathe in deeply through your nose whilst catching the merest scent of tropical blooms in the air. Now, pause a moment; and then open your eyes and absorb the botanical crescendo that’s being played out by nature’s sublime orchestra. The scent, the sounds, the feel; the beauty is right there for you to explore, the rich and colourful tapestry that is a ‘garden’.
These fabulous gardens in Barbados, have been created by the horticulturalist Anthony Hunte, whose ancestors arrived on the island in the 1600s in service. Anthony spent two years turning the large natural sink hole into the beautiful garden we see today, and he opened it to the public back in 1997.
Holetown is a popular choice for a Barbados villa rental holiday. Located on the West Coast of Barbados, in the parish of St James, this is where the English sea captain, John Powell, came ashore and claimed the island for the English King James I in the 1600s. It was given the name of a natural inlet channel where ships could be off loaded and cleaned, before a new cargo would be loaded up.
