The pleasure of staying at Prana Lodge is an experience I will always treasure. What a haven - peace, tranquility and the most exquisite decor throughout. Gail has given so much thought to every aspect of making your stay totally memorable. We stayed in the Ruby Suite and the attention to even the smallest detail was remarkable. Breakfast and Dinner...

Prana lives up to its great reputation. Gail and her staff supply five star service all the time. The accommodation is beautiful. The food is fantastic. What stands out is the friendly and helpful staff. My wife and I can't wait to return. Great value for money.

This is a gem at the beginning of the Wild Coast. If you want real 5 star luxury re food, service, accommodation, staff and spa treatments - look no further!!! It is a secluded paradise - you can relax and walk along the sea with an amazing view, have sundowners and then be pampered all the way. The accommodation is... More

Loved Prana Lodge. Everything is perfectly and beautifully appointed, the service is stellar, the location - both the forest and beach - divine, and the food is beyond delicious (far better than top rated restaurants I've eaten in)

The lodge is hidden away just as one enters Cinsta. i love how it almost seems as though nature is always around you. the infustructure has not spoilt the natural beauty of the area. My mom and i treated ourselves to a spa getaway to the lodge. had a lovely lunch and were pampered for the rest of the afternoon.

My wife, son and I traveled to Prana Lodge recently and were amazed at how beautiful the location was and how much time, effort and expense the owners had invested in this fantastic place. No photographs can do justice to this place and we were pleasantly surprised by how much better it was in reality compared to the website (perhaps... More

Stayed here on a business trip. The lodge is quite 40minute drive outside East London. Beautiful setting along the beach. Really a stunning place. Great attention to detail. Excellent service and very friendly attentive staff. Food was divine! Rooms are spacious, stunning and well decorated. Truly a gem.

We received a warm welcome as we arrived in the reception room for Prana Lodge. We were given a tour of the facilities and could feel every bone in my body start to relax. The beach is a steep walk down from the lodge and takes 3 minutes. The beach was deserted so we felt like it was our own... More
