Our getaways are beautifully designed, sustainably built and immersed in nature to provide a modern, dreamy and serene getaway for guests.

 

makali was created on the principle of lean luxury: more of what you want and less of what you don't need. 
Travel and stays are no longer linked to physical things. Travel is time, intuition, convenience, experience and localisation. It's being comfortable, kicking off your shoes and creating your version of your ideal holiday.

The makali vision is to create sustainable, lean-luxury destinations in beautiful locations.

Our philosophy is simple: Do better. Always. We take sustainability seriously. We believe sustainability and luxury can co-exist to create a new standard of modern, relevant destinations.

We create light, liveable and enjoyable spaces that impart a distinctly casual and comfortable 'holiday feeling'. 

Our destinations are dreamy getaways for those seeking to relax, recharge and spoil themselves in a natural setting. We believe in lean-luxury, where less is more. Our properties are a place for recovery. Create the experience you want - we have something foreveryone. You are on your own time.
