The villas were Balinese style which is where my family is from originally and it was definitely true to form. Very open, feng shui design, simple, very tranquilo. 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

Before we even got to Pranamar, the staff was very accommodating - we had some issues with our bank which required two separate payments and Larissa at the front desk assured us this would not pose a problem.

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
