The food, the location, the service was impeccable and I really could not recommend more highly. In fact the location is so unspoilt and stunning I want to live there, but I guess coming from the UK this isn't surprising.

We stayed at Prana Lodge after doing the 70.3 in East London. What a magnificent place to rest, recover and enjoy fantastic food, service and tranquility.

A definite must... More

The Prana Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. The Suite is very large and well equipped. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And best of all was the dinner - we had a very delicious and interesting dinner !

Excellent property - beautifully situated amongst the dune forests and beautifully appointed rooms. The cuisine was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Prana lodge is quiet and ideal for honeymooners and couples wanting to escape for a weekend. We loved it!

There is little else to say about Prana Lodge, its management, its kind staff and milieu, than the single word with which one is greeted by all there at all occasions: Excellent. I did, sadly, overlook writing in the Visitors´ Book at Reception upon parting, so we´ll have to make the sacrifice of returning to inscribe there the word: Excellent.... More

From the welcoming by the security/ boom gate guard who greeted us by name ( process of elimination we figured...) to Gail congratulating us on our special event to champagne being delivered to our room after dinner.....these small gestures made unforgettable memories for us.
