Duta Orchid Gardens near Sanur Bali
Duta Orchid Gardens are located 7km north of Sanur Beach Bali. A beautiful garden with loads of different species of Orchids as well as other tropical plants. These are not huge gardens, you can walk around it in about 5 minutes but if you take your time to enjoy the various flowers and water features, this is a very enjoyable garden for any plant lover. I am not a huge fan of gardens but did very much enjoy my visit here.
It will take about 15 minutes in a taxi to get to the Duta Orchid Gardens and cost around 50,000Rp. I had the taxi driver wait for me, I spent about 15 minutes in the gardens and then the taxi dropped me back to the northern section of Sanur and the total trip with wait time only cost me 105,000Rp. It is located on the busy Bypass road but it may be hard to find an available taxi driving past this area.
The entrance fee to the Duta Orchid Gardens is 100,000Rp per person which I thought was a bit expensive but these are some very well maintained gardens with a very extensive collection of Orchid species which take particular care to breed and maintain. I don’t think there is a discount for children.
There are a number of nice pathways through the gardens as well as some nice water features.
Close to the exit of the Duta Orchid Gardens are some Japanese Bonsai trees. There is also a cafe near the exit where you can buy food and drinks.
I did get a bit of hard sell from one of the ladies as I leaving the gardens. She asked me if I had gone into the nursery to see the orchid cuttings that were available for sale. I told her I did not want to buy any and she followed me out to the carpark asking me to come with her to look at the plants for sale. A bit annoying but like most places in Bali, they lost alot of revenue during the last 2 years with no tourists so they doing their best to make a sale.
