Hotel Makanda wins silver edition guidebook cover

May 27, 2011

Located in the popular Pacific tourist destination Manuel Antonio, Hotel Makanda by the Sea announced this week it had been selected for the cover photo of the 25th Silver Anniversary Collector’s Edition of Elegant Small Hotels: Boutique and Luxury Accommodations, a worldwide listing of hotels in that category.

 The boutique hotel guidebook, published by travel writer Pamela Lanier and Lanier Publishing International, is due to hit stores this month.

“Hotel Makanda has that elusive ambiance that we look for, and that is why we chose it for the prestigious 25th Anniversary cover issue,” Vivian Sturdavant, director of the Elegant Small Hotels division, said in a statement. “The room chosen for the cover has a view that seems to just flow from the outside to the inside, with the local wildlife becoming a part of the overall vacation experience.”

In business for more than 25 years, Hotel Makanda by the Sea offers 11 luxury studios and villas that are particularly popular for special events getaways, including weddings, honeymoons and birthdays, says marketing director Kimberly Barron. The hotel sits on 12 acres of wildlife sanctuary. For more information, see www.makanda.com. For Pamel Lanier’s online guide to Bed and Breakfast Inns, see www.lanierbb.com.
