Why Stay At Maca Bana
This eclectic enclave is hidden away on a lush hilltop above the powdery sands of Aquarium Beach.
Peaceful Maca Bana is tucked away on Grenada's quiet south shore and with only 7 solar-powered villas the resort has an intimate feel. The so-called banas are crafted using wood, bamboo and local stone, while their fruit-centric names set the tone for the interior design: Cherry comes in soft-hued rosé and red accents, while Avocado sports a soothing shade of green. Each of the air-conditioned villas has its own private deck along with private plunge pools unveiling views across bay to the island's quaint capital of St. George's. Always wanted to learn about tropical food recipes? Arrange for a private cooking demonstration in your villa's fully equipped kitchen or for in-room meals prepared by one of the resort's resident chefs. Or indulge in a massage or spa treatments in your spacious bana. If you feel like mingling, sunbathe around the hotel's infinity pool or head down to the beach for dinner at The Aquarium restaurant. The distinguished menu highlights freshly caught seafood and ingredients like callaloo, pumpkin and ginger sourced directly from the resort's 15-acre organic farm.
Team up with the resort's co-owner Rebecca Thompson, who is one of Grenada's best-known artists. Sign up for tours to secluded palm-fringed beaches (including a picnic) and waterfalls or for a private art lesson in painting or sketching.
Find inner balance with private yoga or Pilates sessions in the privacy of your villa or al fresco on the hillside overlooking Magazine Beach.
Arrive at Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND), which is just 5 minutes from the hotel.Magazine Beach, Point Salines, Point Salines, St. George's, Grenada
