Orchid Forest Stroll

Sacred Fire Boulder
Our Sacred Fire Boulder is a three-thousand-pound pure granite boulder that harmoniously combines the Earth and Fire elements into one magnificent creation.
It is said that Fire is the most fundamental of Earth’s elements, giving rise and transforming all others. Since ancient times until this day, we sit around the fire gazing into its captivating flames, sharing food, knowledge, and comforting one another at times. The mastery of Fire has helped the advancement of civilization tremendously, providing us with protection from the dangers of darkness and coldness. It also has served as a symbol of passion, decision, and leadership.
Our Bonsai private collection is composed of tropical bonsais such as bougainvilleas, bald cypress, Brazilian rain trees, Puerto Rican Neea, Tamarind, Funkien tea, and Buttonwood among others, some of which have been in training since 1983. Our bonsai display wall comes with soft white LED lights. This area is ideal for portrait photography and for guests to enjoy an up close and personal connection with our fascinating bonsai.
Rock Zen Garden
It is a dry landscape composed of three natural rocks, Japanese lanterns, raked gravel, and Mexican river rocks. The gravel is raked daily following patterns symbolizing ripples of water inducing a state of inner peace and tranquility. This area also includes LED lights.
This area features a harmonious arrangement of polished granite seating grouping surrounding a trinity of naturally carved fountains with ethereal LED light. A river of black rocks is shaped as an hourglass symbolizing the passing of time and the fluidity of life. The surrounding natural material is Spanish rock formations reminding us of the interconnection and balance between the Yin and Yang, with light and dark colors.
