Great value for money! The excellent staff and service simply just add to an overall amazing experience. Came here for high tea and even though we were not guests staying the night, we were treated as if we were back home. Would definitely recommend Mannabay. Thank you, will visit again soon!

As a frequent traveler, I would not hesitate to say that MannaBay was the single best hotel experience that I have ever had. In terms of the level of service, the Four Seasons, Ritz-Carltons and Peninsulas of the world have some catching up to do. No nickel and diming here, MannaBay is basically an all-inclusive property. The quality (and quantity)...

We stayed at Manna Bay for our honeymoon in October 2016. The property is beautiful and modern with luxurious rooms and amenities. Because it is a boutique hotel, we received exceptional personal attention from all the staff. The breakfast options were delicious and high tea was always a welcome treat to come back to at the end of day of...

We stayed 2 nights in the Flemingo room and besides the overall refined taste of the hotel, the best feeling you get here: it is as enjoyable as being at home! The staffs members (Marlon, Dominic, Ayanda to name a few) were simply outstanding and always very attentive to our everyday needs. You should really experience the MannaBay hospitality to...
