Maca Bana Boutique Hotel

This is Maca Bana (loosely translated from the Arawak for tree and place of dwelling). Designed to blend seamlessly with the tropical garden setting, each of the seven solar-powered villas is named for an indigenous fruit tree  e.g. Avocado, Cherry, Mango, Papaya, Rock Fig growing, literally, by the front door.

With eco-friendly use of solar power and emphasis on re-cycling, Maca Bana villas are tastefully furnished, finished and fine tuned to offer guests a very different hotel experience. Island inspired 3-dimensional artwork by co-owner and well-known fine artist, Rebecca Thompson, adorn the walls.

Each one has its own special appeal, but all are positioned to take advantage of the view.  The two-storey, two bedroom units have an upside-down concept with the bedrooms at entry level and the kitchen, living dining and verandah upstairs, while the single storey villas have pole position on the cliff edge.  Guests in Rock Fig and Mango just never want to go anywhere!

And why would you when you have spacious accommodation, dream kitchens equipped with top quality European appliances even the fridge doors are eco-friendly with their bamboo covered doors a hot tub on your deck and spa treatments that will come to your door.  Private yoga or pilates, no problem.

And if you’d like a chef from the resort’s delightful beach front restaurant, The Aquarium, to come up and cook dinner for you that too can be arranged – he’ll even give you tips on how you can achieve those special flavours when you go home!

For the artistically inclined, Rebecca offers art classes and field trips to scenic spots off the beaten track.  What better way to capture memories of a great holiday than with your very own water colour of a favourite view.

To further enhance guests’ appreciation of the natural beauty and bounty of Grenada, Maca Bana now offers a Soul Food Tour. Guests are taken up to the hotel’s 15 acre organic kitchen garden in the mountains where they can get an up-close view of all the wonderful vegetables, flavourful herbs and exotic fruit featured on the Aquarium’s menu. What could be more hands-on than picking a bunch of fresh green callaloo and later under the expert guidance of Chef Lorry Francis making a delicious Callaloo Soup’

With lush gardens full of birdsong and the gentle sound of water running along a water feature, Maca Bana in the early morning is an enchanted place.  It is hard to believe that it is only a 3-minute drive to the Point Salines airport while the picturesque capital town of St Georges is a mere 20 minutes away. But best of all the amazing Magazine Bay with its beach stretching in a seemingly endless curve of powdery white sand and lapped by gentle waves, is just down the hill. Walking up after a few rum punches at Maca Bana’s Sirena Beach Bar, could be a bit challenging..but who’s in a rush’ Here’s a tip: walk in a zig zag fashion and it suddenly becomes easier!

  • Great views and spacious accommodations
  • Cliffside units are not suitable for children
  • Saline infinity-edge pool on property for those who don’t want to dip in the ocean
  • Steep walk to restaurant and beach..if driving try to get a park near bottom of hill
  • Rock Fig and Mango perfect for honeymooners and romantic couples of all ages
  • Families enjoy two storey villas, beach and water activities
  • Spiral staircases in 2-storey villas will challenge fitness levels
  • Fully equipped kitchens is an understatement!
  • On site La Sirena Beach Bar has great cocktails and live music most evenings.  While the Aquarium Restaurant offers relaxed dining for lunch and dinner.
