About Mackaya Bella Guest House

Mackaya Bella is an established 4 star modern, eco-friendly bed and breakfast, situated in the newly revitalised suburb of Durban South, close to numerous restaurants, galleries, cafés and boutiques. Set in a peaceful indigenous garden, the guest house allows visitors a calm and quiet space in which to unwind and relax.

The name Makaya Bella is derived from an indigenous shrub known to KwaZulu Natal, which thrives in the cool, shady ecosystem of the coastal forests. This indigenous theme of relaxation and tranquility flows not only through the guest house setting, but also encourages the vision and drive of the establishment.
