off Maurice Bishop Memorial Hwy., Point Salines,

Set on a verdant bluff above Grenada’s talcum-soft Aquarium Beach on the island’s south shore, this tiny hotel delivers a true sense of place. Exotic smells waft up from the hotel’s renowned restaurant, where nutmeg and ginger play a starring role in the cuisine, a nod to the island’s history as the Caribbean’s “spice island.” The seven villas (or “banas”) are individually crafted with local stone, wood, and bamboo, and are painted in vibrant hues that reflect their food-centric names: Avocado is painted a soft green, Mango is a tangy yellow, Coconut is a cool, creamy white. Each bana is furnished with a working kitchen that allows guests to dapple in tropical cuisine—cooking demonstrations are available, and in-room meals can be cooked by one of Maca Bana’s resident chefs. But the coup de grâce is outside: a wooden deck with views across the bay to St George’s (Grenada’s quaint British colonial–style capital), a private Jacuzzi (easily big enough for two), and plenty of space for an in-room massage and other spa treatments. Down on the beach, the property’s Aquarium restaurant is clearly one of the island’s best. It’s the place to order fresh-from-the-Caribbean seafood as well as callaloo cannelloni and ginger pumpkin soup.
