Maraiko Bay Resort Township

The Maraiko Bay Resort Township is an unprecedent development for Guyana. The site comprises almost 1000 acres of prime development land, situated South East of the capital Georgetown, and just 30 minutes drive from the primary international airport. Occupying a broad peninsula between the Atlantic coast and the Mahaica River, Maraiko Bay is ideally placed as the first international-standard residential development in the country.

Hemstock Design has applied at truly turn-key approach for this project, providing CIMGRO with a comprehensive service. This means we have so far taken this project from a blank slate to a worked through concept, and we continue onwards towards detailed design and execution.

Of course, leading the design of a scheme as large as this is not simply an exercise in spatial arrangement, not is it a primarily the execution of a commercial equation. The vision for Maraiko Bay is to create a vibrant, modern, sustainable, and self-sustaining community – Maraiko Bay should be a wonderful place to live and thrive…

The development is set to have a have a transformative affect on Guyana. Improving economic prospects in the South American nation are already attracting international interest, as well as drawing well-qualified Guyanese back to the country from overseas. Such an international inflow of people comes with expectations for a high standard of living; Maraiko Bay leads the way in meeting this rapidly growing need.
