Picture yourself in lush tropical gardens with a vibrant view of blue Carribean Sea, white sand beach and verdant rain forest mountains. The cool sea breeze is caressing your skin and the waves are lapping on the beach below in their steady yet powerful rhythm. The sun is warming your body and the air is filled with the songs of birds in the surrounding trees, hanging their delicious fruits seductively over the balconies- Welcome to Maca Bana.
‘Maca’ is the ancient Arawak word for tree, ‘bana’ means place of dwelling... Maca Bana is a blend of the ultimate privacy and individuality of a villa and the personal services of a tiny boutique hotel. The intimate collection of seven solar powered ‘banas’ is perched on the edge of the cliff above the uniquely tropical and cosmopolitan Aquarium Restaurant and boasts gorgeous ocean views from private massaging hot tubs on every sun deck. Each of the spacious 2-bedroom and 1-bedroom villas is named after an indigenous fruit tree and artistically designed by resident fine artist and co-owner Rebecca Thompson.
Maca Bana is for those who are looking for something different, not another hotel room, but an individual, unique ‘getaway’ to just be and to enjoy life.
Our one-bedroom villas Paw Paw and Rock Fig are quietly nestled on the edge of the cliff above the beach. A view with a room and a room with all the comforts and amenities imaginable. Both air-conditioned banas are spacious and utterly private.
Your beautifully appointed kitchen is fully equipped with fine European stainless steel appliances, truly a gourmet cook’s dream: fridge with freezer & ice maker, gas stove, oven, microwave, Nespresso machine, kettle, blender and coffee maker along with all crockery and cooking utensils.
The bedroom has a stunning four-poster king size bed, a writing desk, ceiling fan, flat screen cable TV, alarm clock with iPod dock, stereo-system with CD-player, wireless internet access, safe and iron and ironing board. The upholstered love seat allows you to enjoy a gorgeous view through the bay window. The en suite bathroom has double vanity sinks with recessed medicine cabinets, a shower and a separate toilet.
A mosquito screened French sliding door leads onto the sun deck with covered dining area, sun beds and your private massaging hot tub.
