ARE CHILDREN WELCOME?
Children are most welcome at Makaranga. There is an outdoor play area near NONNA and a covered play area. We ask that parents respect the other guests by keeping their children close at hand and supervised. Families that dine with us are welcome to make use of the pool and gardens, however this is done at your own risk. There is no lifeguard on duty at the pool. Unaccompanied children are no longer permitted beyond the immediate road within the gardens. Children are asked to please stay on the paths and to stay clear of the stone statues throughout the garden.
CAN I BRING PICNICS TO MAKARANGA
