Makara Playa is a beautiful fully permitted twelve unit suite/hotel (4 full designed buildings with flexible architecture plans). Makara Playa was the first step and the first building was completed and has been running as a 5-suite hotel master house for three years. The building was constructed with a high 70% recycled cement and only sustainable, local wood and low level lighting for environmental friendliness and natural attraction.
There is an office on the property with a security guard/manager apartment and a laundry room and kitchen for housekeeping staff. These facilities make it a ready-to-use luxury hotel property. The additional three buildings are construction ready and would only need permits to be reapplied. The building has a septic tank. There would be a treatment plant as the development moves forward and the hotel uses a privately concession and approved well from the sister property across the street. This property could be bought as a small hotel with more land to add on or as a developmental property. Either ways, buyer would get maximum property utility.
