First and foremost, the staff at Pranamar welcomed my fiance and I as if we were family. Each and every one of them went above and beyond to take care of our requests and many questions. We look forward to visiting our new friends again as much as visiting their beautiful country. The grounds and accomodations at Pranamar are very... More

Stayed at Pranamar for a Women's Quest Yoga and Surf Retreat. It is gorgeous. The staff bent over backwards to take care of us. The yoga was inspiring, as was Nancy! Can't recommend it enough.

Took my very first trip with a group out of Colorado called Woman's Quest to Costa Rica. We stayed in Santa Teresa at Pranamar Villas. The villas were very inviting, cozy, and just gorgeous over all. Our group practiced yoga each morning with our amazing instructor named Nancy Goodfellow. Nancy is clearly an expert in teaching yoga. She is easy... More

Our group went for a yoga retreat. This place is perfect for yogis. Pranamar is a place one can expect to feel completely relaxed without even trying. The people at Pranamar are the most friendly and accommodating group of people I have had the pleasure to meet.

My mother and I are Southern girls who have only ever waded in the white water of the sea. But at Pranamar we were able to make our surfing dreams come true. We stayed in Villa 5, which is conveniently located right between the pool and the restaurant and bar area. The villa itself is one of the smaller accommodations... More

My wife and I stayed in the beach villa and we had an incredible time! The beach villa was very nice and clean and the staff does a fantastic job and are extremely friendly. It's clear that the staff tries very hard to make sure that you're stay is nothing less than perfect. The food was very good (get the... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Pranamar. Villas & Property - We stayed in a 2 bedroom poolside villa. It was beautiful clean and very open. The photos really don't do the rooms and property justice. The pool was stunning and almost felt like a river running through the property. Food & Drink - We travel often to slightly... More

At Pranamar the title "staff" is replaced with "family" and they truly live up to it! Fresh exotic smoothies with every meal. Mouth watering gourmet dinners and desserts, my favorite was Susan's (owner by day, baker by night) famous flourless chocolate cake. The accommodations are very comfortable with beautiful Balinese accents! A truly amazing place to unwind and enjoy the... More

Pranamar is a beautiful, laid-back respite from the hectic pace of everyday life. The Balinese design of the villas is soothing and while each guest has their own personal space, there is something of a community feel in the way the villas are mostly situated alongside the pool. A yoga / surfer sensibility (albeit a high end one) best describes... More

We visit this area often and over the years, have become familiar with most of the hotels. We have been seeking a luxurious, secure and private oceanfront location that is also a good value. Thank you Pranamar for being all that. We had a wonderful, relaxing, romantic time. The notion that the staff is a family is real: between meals... More
