In our recent trip to RSA we had originally intended to stay 2 nights at Prana but discovered that we had underestimated necessary travel time from planned previous stop and thus an intermediate overnight had to be inserted - hence sadly only one night. The welcome and reception were excellent. The suite and its amenities 5 star. Point deduction in... More

Thanks for the review of your time at Prana Lodge. I must apologise for the music at the restaurant on the day of your arrival. We have addressed it with the staff and hopefully that is the last time it happens. We have also taken note of the beach access and will be sure to let guests know of an... More

My wife and I stayed over at Prana for two nights. The large, comfortable rooms are quietly nestled away in the most spectacular natural forest on the coast. It is a truly magnificent setting. The serene environment is tranquil and calming - it is just about the perfect place to go and rejuvenate. Two things that stand out for special... More

We didn't plan a stay at Prana Lodge in our original itinerary. From the moment we first changed plans and called inquiring about availability, the service was impeccable and subtle, the small, fine touches a treat each day. We relaxed in the environment and felt quite pampered. Meals were outstanding (thanks again, Chef). Each person we encountered from Gail and... More

I had the pleasure and privilege to spend some time at Prana Lodge in Cinsa recently.. What an awesome relaxing hideaway! We were fetched from East London airport by shuttle and never needed any form of transport during our stay. You have the option of long walks on the beach or a visit to the quaint little village. At the... More

We had the privilege to spend one night at this beautiful privately owned lodge! I don't think I've got words to describe the ambiance of the lodge. We stayed in Tanzanite, one of the seven suites, with a swimming pool. The interior and art is awesome. We didn't have any meals in the restaurant, as we decided to eat in... More

We have visited this boutique lodge a number of times over the past few years and are continuously delighted by the service, attention to detail and fabulous cuisine. This truly is a gem of a place and certainly deserves its rave reviews and awards. If its a short weekend break or longer beach stay you after this is definitely the... More

This was our second stay at Prana Lodge and it was every bit a good as our first! An exquisite property boasting a culinary experience bar none. Good wine list, beautiful and relaxing spa and the private villas are to die for. I would go back time and time again.

After a number of visits to Prana, you just have to admire the fact that the standard is not only maintained but just gets better. One of the classiest retreats in South Africa, you are just spoilt by the luxurious rooms, the beautiful art, the stunning persian rugs and the magnificent cuisine and that does not even begin to describe...

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and superb setting for our wedding! The staff were amazing and made it a stress-free weekend.It was a perfect day and our families and friends are still talking about it! We will be back soon to enjoy the Ruby Suite.
