LUX April 2017

LUX - April 2017 41 A Tale of Great Success in Sustainable Hospitality Purchased by current owners Nicki Mahony and Mike vom Hagen in 2015, Mackaya Bella has since been transformed into a sustainable establishment, and expanded its clientele from predominantly university doctors and professors, to local holiday makers, corporate clients, students and overseas visitors. These guests are provided with a quiet and relaxed atmosphere where they feel that although they are not at their own home, they are part of Mackaya Bella. The dedicated team manage to combine a professional but friendly service and lack of ridged routine to create a supportive, approachable ambiance. Overall, drawing on over 17 years of experience in the hospitality industry and their passion for travel, Nicki and Mike have made this stunning establishment into a great success. Moving forward the focus will remain on providing an eco-friendly experience that is value for money and offers the highest possible standards of hospitality, to ensure that every stay at Mackaya Bella is memorable for the right reasons. Mackaya Bella Guest House is a four star, environmentally friendly, owner run establishment that was born almost a decade ago when the previous owners recognised the need for an upmarket home away from home. We profile this glorious establishment and explore how its current owners have made their mark.
