Lotus Flower Season

26th December – 31st March

If you’re looking for a tropical paradise surrounded by a mass display of lotus flowers, then our Lotus Flower Season will not disappoint. The gardens contain over 40 waterways that have been planted with over 70 varieties of sacred lotus flowers.

From late December until late March tens of thousands of lotus flowers produce the primary floral display in the garden. The peak of the lotus flower blooming period is usually January and February.

But it’s not just lotus flowers on show, during summer and early autumn is also when our extensive tropical gardens and many of our other featured attractions look their best.
