Found this place by chance and what a find. The rooms are lovely with own private courtyard and plunge pool. It's in a fabulous location nearby a beautiful stretch of beach, perfect for walking or running (or even biking I'm told when it's low tide!) You know service is good when you don't notice it and it was truly excellent... More

Simply the very best location for a wedding. This little paradise was recommended to us and exceeded even our high expectations. Coming from overseas, I was little prepared and gratefully left the organising to Gail, Megan and their team who took care of everything for me. We chose to get married on a deck overlooking the beautiful beach. I was... More

Our 4 night stay at Prana Lodge was truly special. We stayed in the Ruby suite with spacious and beautifully decorated living room/bedroom, huge bathroom with separate shower and bath and double sinks and a private outdoor courtyard with dining, sitting and sunbathing facilities as well as a splash pool. Rooms were serviced twice daily and nothing was too much... More

Stayed here with family for 4 nights. Service was excellent! The rooms were gorgeous and very well presented. particularly enjoyed the outdoor shower and the personal touches like fresh shortbread for the coffee. Staff were very attentive and always got our drinks orders correct. Now for the food......quite possibly the best meals I have ever eaten. All were cooked to... More

We stayed there after competing in the half ironman in East London and thus we were looking for luxurious peace and quiet. To say the lodge and the staff achieved is to do them an injustice. The rooms were huge and well appointed, the staff courteous and attentive while management were on hand 24/7 should you need something. They even... More

Thought we had enjoyed the very best that South African small hotels and lodges has to offer. Then we stayed at Prana and experienced unbelievably high standards. Location is idyllic, an oasis of tranquility. Rooms are gorgeous, staff delightful and food out of this world. Three fabulous, imaginative dinners cooked by Morn. A wonderful spa as well! What a place!

I visited Prana and they have six wonderfully decorated suites, they attention to detail as they decorate those suites is out of this world, the staff is well trained to offer the best service ever, and the owners make you feel like part of the Prana Lodge family within your stay. The Thai massage at the wellness place transformed me... More

This is a VERY special place. My spotless clean suite was great - with private plunge pool, outdoor shower, large bath room, confortable bed, ..... everything what to expect from a 5-Star lodge! The Spa is unique - had 2 relaxing treatments. The owner family is extremely friendly and helpful, ever present and always there for their guests. Not to... More

We stayed at Prana for 2 nights midweek in January and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The staff were attentive yet not overbearing, the beer was cold and the food was excellent! We stayed in the Ruby Suite which was very nicely done with its own private pool. All in all a great stay. Thanks to Gail and the team.
