What a surprise coastal bush luxury discovery unmatched in East London for sure! Amazing large suite, incredible service, the perfect family dinner & breakfast around the fireplace and a great selection of wines! The pouring cold rain meant we did not swim but umbrellas were provided to walk through the bush paths which are well laid out! Perfect wifi provided,... More

We cannot enthuse enough about the lovely time we enjoyed at this lovely establishment. From the warm welcome to the efficient check-out process, everything was superbly and professionally handled by Gail and her great staff. The Ruby Suite is awesome in its spaciousness, elegance and comfort. As a "bathroom fanatic", the Ruby bathroom suite ranks among the top 3 over... More

Kat & I absolutely loved our week with the Davidsons. That is exactly how our stay at Prana Lodge felt, like we had been invited into the Davidson's beautiful home on the beach in Chintsa. We were welcomed with warmth & personality and Nancy even hugged Kat hello remembering her from last year when we had first visited Prana just... More

The owners are super involved. The rooms are gigantic and full of trees. The beach walks are wonderful and all catered for. The chef creates a theatre of food that is world class. This destination should be on everyone's bucket list. You will ask for nothing and leave inspired.

Wow. We stayed in the diamond suite and could not have been happier with our experience. Simba made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The beach was wild and beautiful. The restaurant was delicious. The spa was phenomenal. Well done, Prana.

Awesome stay at Prana! Even though we stayed there during peak season in December, they included the couples massage package (normally special package in off peak season) for us as a honeymoon special. We really enjoyed our stay at the tranquil Prana Lodge!
