Makena’s Hills is spacious and refined. Special antiques and collectors items adorn each room and the living area and the feeling is very much one of being in a private and carefully looked after residence rather than a lodge.


The main reception area has two fireplaces which are like private living rooms and individual dining areas as well as the ability to host everyone together for larger groups. There is also a front terrace with a campfire and a natural rock swimming pool. The Yoga Shala has stunning views where kudu, bushbuck, and impala sometimes come to watch if you feel like stretching out after a long walk.


Eight large and airy permanent Arabic style beige tents, all with exceptional views are filled with carefully chosen antiques. Each room has either a large double poster bed or 2 queen beds, a spacious dressing room and bathroom. The tents are all on wooden or stone decks with large verandahs and a private breakfast table, or ideal for a private yoga lesson. Food is innovative, fresh and healthy, locally sourced and picked from our own organic gardens.
