Stayed here on a business trip. The lodge is quite 40minute drive outside East London. Beautiful setting along the beach. Really a stunning place. Great attention to detail. Excellent service and very friendly attentive staff. Food was divine! Rooms are spacious, stunning and well decorated. Truly a gem.

We received a warm welcome as we arrived in the reception room for Prana Lodge. We were given a tour of the facilities and could feel every bone in my body start to relax. The beach is a steep walk down from the lodge and takes 3 minutes. The beach was deserted so we felt like it was our own... More

I visited the Wellness Centre and was treated to an amazing massage by Num. The facilities are far superior to any I have visited in the region and the hospitality is warm and friendly and in no way "intimidating" as can be found in 5-star establishments. I can't wait to return.

Went here for a weekend away with my wife and we were amazed by the experience. This is truly a hidden gem in the Eastern Cape. Though the 'Lodge' is not situated in a game reserve and does not feature game drives, the experience is very similar. The place is nicely tucked away in Chintsa and the entire experience from...

As they were fully booked, we got a day spa package which was fabulous, the massage, steam and Jacuzzi made us ravenous for lunch, which was really, really good. They have a very competent chef who produced absolutely immaculate food, the service was great but the most important aspect of this place is the location. You have a perpetual orchestra... More
