So many times we overlook what is to offer right on our doorstep. Decided to book a getaway for my wife's birthday just the 2 of us. Without having to travel a distance I decided on Prana Lodge. From the reservation to arranging Awith Simba for collecting a bunch of flowers from Murambi everything was handled with pure professionalism. On... More

Overall a very good experience. The beach is just magnificent: private and safe. The sleep experience: not so good. It was during winter and I was cold during the night because no extra blankets were supplied and no electric blankets either. The mattress was not of a good quality (not the quality to be expected against the tariff asked). I... More

We recently visited Prana Lodge. Our suite was grand, the communal areas inviting, the food phenomenal - and the hospitality truly, warm South African. Situated on the unspoilt Cintsa East beach, a visit to Prana Lodge is well worth including in your south African itinerary.

We really enjoyed staying at Prana Lodge. The food was excellent and tasty. Top class all around and recommendable for a romatic get away. Only think - underfloor heating in the rooms would be nice - in winter time when cold.

We visited Prana Lodge for 2 nights in June. We did not know what to expect, but what a surprise. The units provide you with privacy, is well designed with beautiful bathroom and outside shower. Although winter, we could use the outside shower. Beautifully decorated lounge with gas fireplace that warmed up the whole room. I love the beautiful carpets... More

Tucked away in lush bush this is one of the nicest places I have stayed at. This boutique hotel gives the feeling of it being your own home. Each individual 'room' is secluded with a lovely garden and small plunge pool. Easy access to the most beautiful beach, magnificent meals in an unbelievable setting, friendly staff and no better place... More
