Award Winning Gardens
A Verdant Island Paradise
30-acres of award winning garden burst with life and colour, delighting senses of sight and scent with beautiful trees and herbs, fruit trees and greenery bearing exotic spices such as cinnamon, and extra-ordinary flowers such as orchids, blossoming hibiscus and heliconias.
Our green-fingers paradise is home to over 300 different species of exotic and endemic plants tended to by 18 passionate full-time gardeners.
In June 2007, the South African Landscapers Institute (SALI) awarded MAIA the “Gold Award of Excellence” in the category “Best Novice Entry: Evergreen Turf Trophy" and the "Gold Award of Excellence” in the category “Landscape Construction with Design by Bensley Design Studio".
In August 2008, SALI gave our gardens their highly prestigious award for 'Best Landscape and Turf Maintenance in Africa', and in August 2015, MAIA was awarded the “Gold Award of Excellence” in the category “Landscape and Turf Maintenance”.
