Here you a trapped in a paradise with exotic plants from all around the world. The beauty of this place is that it forces you to unwind without even knowing it…. and if it rains you have the glasshouse where you can pretend you are somewhere more exotic or tingle those tastebuds at the Gateway restaurant within the gardens.
