Pranamar is just steps away from the warm ocean water, surrounded by the lush green jungle and complete with magical sunsets and beauty. The accommodations and Villas are quaint and lovely, including outdoor showers and hammocks. Upon each encounter you are greeted with a warm and friendly smile from the staff, embracing you as family and encouraging one to feel... More

Imagine, lush green jungle meeting the warm Pacific ocean. Pranamar sits on just that. Truly a special place. I discovered Pranamar about 5 years ago, I came here in search of a NEW location to host my yoga retreats. I fell in love right away! And have been back every year since. Just steps away from the beach, hammocks to... More

This resort is just breath-taking! Beautiful, luxurious villas, mostly of which surround the gorgeous pool, in the middle of the jungle but right on the beach!!! I loved the outside shower next to my room! I thought the bugs would be really awful but I didn't have any problems and I hate bugs. It was humid but I got used... More

The retreat itself and the person running the retreat is exceptional. The beauty that surrounds is like no other. The people who work at the hotel are kind, helpful and so very nice . The beach is dirty and lined with bottles and garbage. The rooms are shared which we were not prepared for and you can hear every step... More

I went to Pranamar to celebrate my Mother's 65th Birthday it was perfect. There was something for everyone. Great surf for my brother, yoga for me, relaxing spa and amazing food for Mom. The bungalows are all decorated in an Balinese style, in fact I heard the owners purchased most of their furniture in Indonesia. The restaurant focuses on an... More

We visited Pranamar for an overnight trip in June and were very impressed with the accommadations, location and service. Pranamar is located some five km along the coastal road from Santa Teresa, away from the hustle and bustle of the town, and has an ocean front location which is truly stunning. A low tide there are numerous rock pools to... More

We spent four days here end of May, and to say it was a magical moment is an understatement. The whole energy and vibe of this place is a reflection of what life should be: healthy, happy, and inspiring. The staff is amazing, and the Bungalow we were staying in is incredible

My girlfriend and I visited Pranamar in early May of 2016 with a small group of Yoga students. I must say that my visit to Pranamar was inspiring. The Yoga studio at Pranamar was the perfect setting for our practice. Our group included the great Katrina Durocher (yoga432.com). Besides the Yoga studio, Pranamar included a restaurant that provided healthy meals... More

Many thanks to Agustina, Dagos, Alejandra, Alejandro and the full team at Pranmar Villas. Just returned from an amazing trip and while it rained the majority of the time, we found ways to enjoy every bit of our week. The rooms are perfect for groups to hang out on the pool decks or villa balconies. The food is beyond yummy.... More
