We had a wonderful few days here in February - such an amazing location - you can walk down to a fabulous 21 km long beach which hardly had anyone on it. We walked for miles along the shore with fabulous sand dunes to one side - idyllic, I didn't want to leave. The Lodge itself is wonderfully luxurious and... More

We had our wedding at Prana, it was a truly unbelievable few days. Cintsa is a small sleepy town on a beautiful beach coast. Prana is probably the only 5 star establishment within 100km's in each direction. The lodge is very homey and the owners Tim and Gail make you feel like you are staying with friends. Their daughter Meghan... More

My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights at this luxurious 5 star lodge in the Eastern Cape. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, private, luxurious and with every detail thought of. Gail, Megan, Morne , Simba and all the other staff members are a joy to deal with. The cuisine is French inspired with lovely presentation and innovative fresh ingredients.... More

My wife & I spent a memorable afternoon & night en route to the Cape, together with 2 other couples we were traveling with. Fantastic value & 5 star treatment. Relaxed around the pool in its unique tranquil garden setting. Beach walks along the raised walkways through the forest. Spoilt in the dining area at dinner & breakfast. Spacious accommodation....

This is truly one of the best hotels I've had the privilege of visiting and will no doubt return to. Located on the pristine coastline at Cintsa you really couldn't ask for a better location. It's close enough to East London should you need anything and for transport links, yet does occupy its own piece of paradise so that you... More
