Maca Bana is a unique blend of natural elegance and laid-back luxury, the perfect place if you are looking for something different, for a sensual & inspiring holiday experience. This collection of 7 unique ‘banas’ is the captivating synthesis of the ultimate privacy and individuality of a villa and the personal and personable services of a small boutique hotel.
Each of the 2 one-bedroom and 5 deluxe ‘banas’ (with 2 bedrooms) is named after an indigenous fruit tree and artistically designed accordingly, set amidst tropical gardens of babbling streams and ponds of koi & terrapins with a communal infinity edge swimming pool. Our very spacious deluxe villas Avocado, Cherry and Coconut are designed for maximum comfort and privacy inside & outside. Between the two bedrooms is the staircase and a private utility room complete with washing machine and dryer, ironing boards and irons for your personal laundry requirements.
All 3 villas feature a comfortable reading nook with bookshelves that help you to while away a few stolen holiday moments. The villa windows are all mosquito screened. French sliding doors open onto spacious hardwood balcony decks with bamboo privacy screens, a covered dining area, loungers and sun beds to enjoy the truly spectacular coastline views.These banas can also be rented for 2 persons as a ‘deluxe villa for 2’ with one of the bedrooms locked up during the stay.
Maca Bana is striving to set an example that eco tourism and responsible development is attainable for small family run businesses. 48 solar panels provide renewable energy, each bana has a solar water heater, the pool no longer uses chlorine, composting nourishes the organic nursery, fruit tree orchard and herb garden, an extensive list of environmental practices helps to reduce garbage and energy use. Maca Bana’s owners purchased a “slice of rainforest” in the traditionally agricultural parish of St. David’s to restore it to its pre-hurricane-Ivan state by clearing the vines strangling huge rainforest trees and to organically farm short-crops for The Aquarium Restaurant.
The kitchens are upstairs and fully fitted with wooden cabinets and fine European stainless steel appliances, a gourmet cook’s dream: fridge with freezer and ice maker, oven, dishwasher, microwave, espresso machine, kettle, coffee maker and blender along with all crockery and cooking utensils. They all have a central island fitted with cooking hob and breakfast bar. Also upstairs is a dining area, the living room area with flat screen cable TV and a separate toilet. To make the pampering perfect, order a chef to your villa to prepare a delicious meal served al fresco. The local chefs from the Aquarium love to meet with Maca Bana guests and share some of their well-kept culinary secrets in a private cookery lesson. Your dream kitchen is the stage for our tailor-made cookery lessons and you can learn to prepare your favorite dish from the Aquarium menu or a real Grenadian recipe.
