Just returned from a trip to costa rica where I was able to spend a couple of nights at Pranamar. Stayed in bungalow 1 which looks right out onto the ocean. A gorgeous tropical room with a gorgeous view. The food was excellent and the service top notch. Everyone so friendly and warm. I highly recommend the high quality yoga... More

Pranamar is visually stunning and has a naturally peaceful and relaxing energy. The rooms are simple and elegant, well designed and the food does not disappoint. We just had a one week yoga retreat here and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we had no issues, just time to relax! A great place to... More

Well, to be honest I have never written a bad comment on any hotel as I always find something good about them, On this case, I just went with my family for lunch to Pranamar, and we were the only ones having lunch here. We got our food after at least 45 minutes, I had to stand up every single... More

Dear folks I am shocked at your story. I was in the restaurant the entire time you were there, I watched everything. You were there for several hours and just enjoying your meal and a coffee. I was sitting at a table working on my computer. As a courtesy to you, our servers had cleared your food and were simply... More

I visited Pranamar for the first time late Jan/early Feb 2012 with my husband, our 2 toddlers, and their grandparents from Sweden. We were an odd lot with varied interests and hopes/expectations for our 2 week vacation: Pranamar exceeded all of our expectations and gave us a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, and warm vacation to remember. To set some context, we... More

Staying at Pranamar was like coming home to a family I didn't know I had. The grounds itself are stunning, with views that combine the ocean and the lush greenery that is Costa Rica. My friend called it the "Garden of Eden,"I called it an Öasis," but really its just paradise. The yoga shala is unreal; gorgeous and spacious, and... More

I have been to Pranamar twice now. We couldn't leave after our first trip until promising ourselves we would be back within the year. I am a yoga teacher and yogi of over ten years, and I find the yoga classes enlightening, challenging and inspirational. The yoga classes are also welcoming to beginners of yoga just the same. The yoga... More

When the friends I spend Christmas with announced we were going "to the beach in Costa Rica," I was not thrilled. I do not like heat, am so fair-skinned that I might as well be allergic to sun, and I liked the place we spent the last two Christmases (in the mountains in Costa Rica) very much indeed. In fact,...

My wife and I stayed at Pranamar from December 12th to the 18th 2011 and when we first got there I would say we were in awe, a very pleasant daze. Every thing from the owners, staff, villas, restaurant...etc is a 10 out 10 period. I think we stayed in villa #3 which is poolside with a beach front view.... More
