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. Lazy luxury and soulful relaxation, located just above our cosmopolitan, uniquely tropical Aquarium Restaurant on Magazine Beach. 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. Both banas feature comfortable lounging areas and Pineapple has a reading nook with bookshelves that help you to while away a few stolen holiday moments. The villa windows are all mosquito screened. Other amenities include direct dial telephones, a stereo system with CD-player and wireless internet access throughout the property. Each villa has a private utility room in a separate structure, complete with washing machine and dryer, ironing boards and irons for guest’s personal laundry requirements.
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 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 both have a dining area in the kitchen. 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.
