This must be the fourth or fifth time we've stayed in this boutique hotel. Every time has been equally perfect - and we're fussy travellers who are happy to pay top dollar provided we get top treatment.
Chef Jaysee's cooking is worth the visit alone. The rooms are beautifully appointed with a private plunge pool, and the amenities are perfect for a relaxing couple.
Good cappuccinos, nice wine list, and decent cocktails. All add to the experience.
Cintza beach is unspoiled, very quiet even in peak season, and quite spectacular. I'll try to add a panoramic photo to this review if the iPhone app allows it. Prana is the only way to experience this beach whilst getting top end accommodation. We opt to stay here and commute 30mins to family in East London, rather than stay there. And let's be frank, EL really has nothing to offer the tourist, whereas Cintsa is a little slice of heaven.
It's worth noting that after Prana, we did stay 2 nights at EL's #1 rated (tripadvisor) hotel; quarry lake inn. It was indeed very nice, but Prana tops it easily. To the proprietors of Prana; consider re categorising Prana as a hotel, and in EL. Just make it clear that it's an easy 30min commute. I imagine you'll get more search hits than as a Cintza BnB, and you'll make the #1 position easily.
