Tucked in the rolling hills of the Eastern Cape, this idyllic setting more than lives up to the meaning of its name; a place of renewal & restoration, crowned with flawless service and genuine care. Gail & Tim (who own it), Lindy, Simba, Bota- each team member made our stay there special and truly memorable. There was nothing too big... More

Wow! To say "Blown away" is an understatement! To arrive in the little seaside village and discover Prana hidden away in the indigenous coastal forest was a magnificent surprise! From or arrival, with the efficient valet service, to our magnificent rooms we were amazed, which was only slightly surpassed by the indulgence of the spa day with the team organized... More

Me and my other half stayed at Prana a few months ago on our South African trip. And what a treat it was! Having stayed in some wonderful places in Kruger Park, Karoo, Cape Town, Garden Route etc, Prana remains a real gem and an unmatched experience. From the moment you arrive to this idyllic and secluded oasis in the... More

Just returning from a disappointingly short stay at Prana Lodge. The passion and enthusiasm displayed by the owners as well as the staff is absolutely felt from the time to check in to check out. Loved my stay there , a rare and precious find with an experience that will bring me back. Rarely do you find an awesome well... More

We ended our Wild Coast tour at Prana Lodge and wow what a delight! The attention to detail of the overall lodge screams luxury and class and is an absolute delight. The service and staff are incredibly friendly, completely customer focused and really prioritize their guests. We had dinner at the hotel on both nights and the chef really impressed... More

After touring the Wild Coast we ended our stay at Prana Lodge. What an absolute treat! The attention to detail in terms of our room ( Forest Lodge) as well as the excellent service of the staff who were willing to assist with anything.

For a long time, this place was on my wish list. I was not disappointed! What a delight Prana Lodge is, tucked away in the peaceful forest, yet only a short walk from the long and pristine beach. The suites are named after gemstones and are beautifully and opulently decorated with elegant furniture, interesting artworks and Persian carpets. One's every... More

Prana Lodge holds special spot to me. The setting for this little piece of heaven is out of this world. Located out of the city to give you that much needed peace and relaxation that one needs every now and again! The staff are attentive and professional, not seen until they are needed and make the stay extra special. The... More

My review can do this venue no justice, you need to be there to understand my need to return. If a break from everything is what you need you must go. The rooms are homes you could spend hours just relaxing, with our own private garden and plunge pool you need nothing else. Just a few paces and your on... More
