This is the second time we stayed at Pranamar, and the second time we were entirely happy with the experience. It's simply the best property in Santa Teresa and the accommodations are top notch, tastefully done in an Indonesian style...but with all the amenities you'd want from a vacation villa. The pool, the Yoga facilities, the restaurant, etc are all... More

I've never left a review because my travels are often roughing-it-type backpacking in places without staying in a fabulous resort, however, I came here last week for a yoga retreat and enjoyed every minute. In fact, I'm enjoying the memories too. If you are a fancy pants and don't like bugs, don't go to the jungle by the beach. If... More

Pranamar is true gem,peaceful,tranquil and completely relaxing. Whether your into Yoga or not this place is true find. The staff, the beach, the villas are all wonderful. The food and to me the fact that is a little off the beaten path makes it even better.

Pranamar villas are the vacation I love. Remote, quiet, beautiful, well maintained. Yoga area brings me zen just thinking about it. Staff are beautiful, kind and excellent at their work. Restaurant and ocean are perfect. I have been twice and look forward to returning very soon.

We planned our trip to focus on Yoga and Surfing. Both of these endeavors were met and our expectations were exceeded. The Yoga studio is immaculate and open, facing the ocean. The regular instructor, Nancy, is knowledgeable, spiritual, and approachable. Her classes were relaxing and challenging for both novices and advanced students. Our surfing instructor, Geronimo ("Gero" for short), was... More

Dear guest Now that was an awesome review! Thank you for taking the time! I would like you to know that the trimming of the plants has to coincide with the rains.

The Pranamar Villas are stunning. I was at the Pramamar Villas as part of VajraSol Yoga Adventures retreat, and WOW, the retreat and villas make a great combination. The grounds are lush and fully of color, all while leaving the path ways clear and well lit at night. Every villa is completely screened in to protect against bugs and critters... More
