Just returned from a surf and yoga retreat led by Women's Quest, with accommodations at Pranamar. The staff, the rooms, the pool, food, setting and options are all top-notch. The attention to detail is outstanding, from the design and layout of the resort to the creative use of materials. Cleanliness is impeccable. The food was clean and fresh. The chefs... More

We stayed here for five nights and couldn't have been happier. The oceanside villa was awesome; simply steps from the beach! The owner, Susan, actually greeted us when we first arrived and asked us every day if there was anything we needed! The restaurant and bar were great. The whole staff went out of their way to be helpful. I... More

My family and I were recently in Santa Teresa and visited Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat. Everything about it was perfect. Spa treatments on the beach; open air yoga pavillion; beautiful, natural looking pool; Bali-inspired villas... I wish we could have stayed longer!

Pranamar was an amazing vacation destination. The beachfront villa, the outstanding staff, and restaurant, yoga, and the extra assistance with arranging our excursions was outstanding. We were comfortable and safe. The beach is beautiful. Jose, who was our personal taxi driver was so helpful and such a kind soul. We went zip lining, horseback riding, rented the ATV's from Pranamar... More

Everything about Pranamar Villas is special and welcoming from the wonderful, helpful and friendly staff, to the beautiful bungalows and villas and the incredible morning yoga sessions. I travelled alone and during rainy season so while most other hotels in Santa Teresa were either closed or nearly empty, the Bali-inspired tropical Pranamar was busy enough not to feel isolated or...

Eco and sustainably counscious designed. Feels spacious & large, but... More

My hubs and I went a couple of years ago when it first opened for a surf trip, and loved it. Great grounds, awesome rooms, super close to amazing surf, great yoga, and awesome food. We loved it so much that we went back last year for another week-long trip, and will likely be back again this year. We keep... More

At Pranamar each evening brings another brilliant sunset. Each villa/bungalow is unique, but they all reflect the spirit of Bali. The Yoga Shala is perfect , an amazing place to practice yoga while birds are diving into the swimming pool beside you .And a cooling breeze blows up form the ocean. The food is to die for, first you hear... More

Dear Readers, I wish Tripadvisor was a place where a business could defend from accusations before posting a review like this, but unfortunately it is not. We had reported this review once and it was removed, but the client has decided to post it a second time and seems like now Tripadvisor decided to keep it. I will be brief... More
