I recently stayed at Pranamar Villas as part of a Vajra Sol Yoga Retreat. From the minute I arrived on property, I knew I was in for a trip of a lifetime. The staff are some of the kindest, and most thoughtful people that I've ever met. They remember your name from the moment you meet them, making for a... More

My husband and I spent a amazing week at Pranamar Villas during "rainy season" although the weather was amazing! We booked a honeymoon package. The hotel sorted out the car service picking us up to and from the airport. It's a little bit of a ride from the airport to Pranamar, we drove through a small river, it is definitely... More

Both the bungalow and the villas have front porches with hammocks. The staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and competent. The yoga facility is beautiful. The spa treatments were good. The...

Although Pranamar is a little off the beaten path, it was worth it! We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and wanted to go somewhere not too crowded where I could do some yoga and my husband could catch some waves and also do a little exploring in a far away land. Pranamar met all of our needs! We stayed... More

Choose the bungalow on the beach! The accomodations are spectacular! This is such a beautiful location, unmatched only by the friendly and professional staff. Make sure to do a yoga class in the Yoga Shala and get a massage on the beach while listening to the sound of the waves. Try your hand at surfing or paddle boarding ... there... More

Beautiful location, yoga class was very good. Massage by the beach was complete with the sounds of waves crashing! The restaurant featured organic and healthy options as well as fresh fish and interesting drink cocktails

Pranamar was such a lovely place to vacation. I went with a girlfriend who is an avid surfer and she enjoyed the waves a great deal, especially since they were a quick 5 min walk down the beach! I enjoyed the daily yoga classes that accompanied our stay. The yoga studio is gorgeous and every class was challenging. The restaurant,... More

Pranamar is place that will always have a special place in my heart because of the peace and tranquility that the place fostered within my wife and I.

Hello Sunset lovers.... So glad you loved Pranamar and were happy with our food and staff , and yes, it's a quick walk to the best swimming beach around.
