This venue is world class.It is small,cosy and ideal to rekindle your life with your loved one or just to unwind from the hustle and bustle from the city.The food is to dye for,the helpings are just write and the presentation is world class.To complete your meals,the chef comes to ask for your opinion. Does this happens any where else?

This is simply one of the best small hotels in South Africa, in an idyllic setting, right near the magnificent Chintsa Beach. The service is excellent, the rooms with private plunge pools are each designed beautifully with unique furnishings, antiques and art. A huge thank you to Megan and Chef Jaycee for catering to our special requirements. The food was... More

My partner and I stayed at Prana Lodge for 2....then 3...then 4....then 5 days- we couldn't leave!! From the moment of booking to when we left this was a top class experience. The food (thank you Morne and Janine) was without doubt the best I have eaten in a lodge experience, the staff were efficient, charming and so well trained,... More

we went there for our anniversary , it was a very special lovely experience. the service was excellent and the rooms were luxurious and spacious. The facilities in the bedroom was thoughtful and more than adequate. The decor had a relaxed, romantic feel about it. The beaches were also beautiful, clean and there were enough sand banks to have a... More

With our 3 year old son in the safe care of his grandparents in Cintsa, we treated ourselves to a date night at the serene Prana Lodge. It was a balm for the soul - rooms are very secluded with private plunge pool. Rooms are tastefully decorated in a warm, inviting and comfortable colonial African style (I loved some of... More

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
