  • A lovely place to spend some time, learning about bees, enjoying ice-cream, coffee & relaxing. The place is air conditioned. The staff are very friendly. I Learnt about about honey from the demonstration. I didn't realize that honey had different antibacterial grades! Cool! Enjoy and taste!
  • This place showcases a lot of honey and beekeeping related products, both historical and present-day. Many of which I was not aware of existed until I came here. Their honey ice cream was very delicious! The staff were helpful with local recommendations. They have their own beekeeping operation as well, you can see the bees in their honey comb structures. Quite impressive!
