super classy and stylish yoga/ healing centre with stunning rooms in the centre of Colombo .

Adjacent is the Seed cafe , delicious healthy snacks and meals although a touch on the expensive side.

Staff were very helpful, always smiling and they arranged an amazing massage last minute for me with Sean one of their therapists whilst my daughter did a yoga art class with Meridith.

I booked further treatments with Sean as I found him very knowledgeable enjoyed his warm friendly and positive nature. I left a new man !

Prana is definitely a cool place to hang out for the day.

Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to come back 🙏

I changed my booking at the last minute, and I’m so glad I did!!
The room is big, very nicely furnished and very comfortable. The atmosphere is very nice, with a little cafe (which tends to be quite busy in the morning cause the food is delicious!!), a shop, and different Ayurvedic treatments and yoga classes available. Unfortunately I couldn’t try the yoga class that was given for me at check in (had too many other things planned already), but if I ever come back to Colombi, I would definitely come back!!

Breakfast is not included in the price, but there are many options available nearby, and the on-site cafe has great food.

The only negative thing is the internet, which barely worked in the room.

If you want a glorious sanctuary in the middle of bustling Colombo this is your destination. Classes were excellent and recommended by me - a yoga teacher of 30 years-. The building is stunning and the new cafe at the front of the complex has great modern Western health food choices. All the accomodation rooms upstairs are different and tastefully decorated. Mine had a beautiful bath. I loved my stay here.

I had a sports massage with "Therapist Shawn" a few months ago. He started saying that they usually treat only "Foreigners" but had made an exception to accommodate me. Perhaps this action was due to lack of tourists in Sri Lanka due to Covid.

Calling me "Uncle", Shawn took every opportunity to make inappropriate comments which were humiliating. Management actions that followed was worse in mind.

I complained about Shawns' behavior to the management privately. Christa the new manager responded immediately.

Here is an extract from Christa's email.

"We are perplexed about your experience.
Please do accept our apology.
We will immediately follow up on this matter and revert to you in due course.

Thank you for trusting us with your openness.

Meanwhile we wish to reimburse you for the sportmassage. Please let me know you bankdetails."

Kind greetings
Christa
Management

I politely declined the money and wrote back that I was interested in eliminating any hints of discrimination against the locals and also to improve Shawn's behavior. Looks like the management believes that all problems are solved by refunding the fees which itself is quite insulting.

There was no further response from Christa despite several reminders. In my mind, their silence is an implicit acknowledgment of my complaint and Shawn's actions. I wanted keep my complaint private but I have no choice but take this public.

I have enjoyed attending their Yoga sessions and the restaurant. There are lot of good people working there who are polite and friendly to all customers.

However the actions of Owner and the Manager, who are of Europen decent have been disappointing. They do not seem to care much about the culture of discrimination and responding to a customer request.

Overpriced. Very dusty home. Zero service. Basically you are alone after 5:30pm and until 7:30 am. Techno night club until 3am means no sleep, which goes exactly against the purpose of a meditative place. No hot water.
Yet, good environment, yoga sessions (not during weekends except Saturday morning), excellent Seed cafe downstairs with good food and vibe.
Recommandation to owner: This place needs a manager able to 1.inform guests before booking about the situation and 2.give a discount or upgrade since the house is empty, something to make clients feel better given the circumstances. There are so many rules (where to place the cushions when not in use) (in the shoes basket which doesn’t make much sense) and so very little compensation.

I love the homey feeling of Prana and the team is amazing. I slept like a baby in the quiet room in the middle of Colombo. Victoria Park is closeby so it is great to have runs in the morning. I can highly recommend the breakfast as well. Overall an excellent experience.

Lovely yoga studios and cafe. Great teaching - classes at all levels. In a lovely old bungalow. You don’t need to book ahead - turn up about 10 mins before the class - there are mats for hire. Very good value. The cafe is very nice (salads etc and more expensive than local place) also busy at weekends.

Prana offers a variety of classes yoga, TRX and some others. Good teachers, English speaking and the studio is small but clean and lovely. There is also a very nice gift shop with yoga gear as well as some beautiful caftans, Jewelry and other gift items. And don't miss Cafe Kumbuk next door for great healthy food.

I had a sensational appointment with Ayurvedic Doctors. It included full in-depth consultation with the Doctors, followed by wonderful treatments including massage and a herbal bath.

Not only was the whole process really interesting and professionally/sensitivity carried out, but it was extremely helpful.

Plus I loved the whole experience and found it utterly enjoyable.

It all took place in the loveliest of environments too.

Lastly it represents fantastic value for money; in short I wholeheartedly recommend anyone to undertake one of these procedures!
