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

I attended a yoga/surf/sup retreat hosted at Pranamar which was wonderful, it is truly a gem. The facility is beautiful, rooms very comfortable, all the amenities you need and food is excellent. It is a quiet place to read, relax, reflect or, enjoy a cocktail by the pool and definitely catch amazing sunsets. Whatever you like, it's there. The beach... More

There is nothing not to like about this resort. Susan and Greg are fantastic hosts and Nancy is by far one of the best yoga Instructors I have ever had the privilege of meeting as a participant in a class. The yoga shala is open air, large, and perfect for the popular daily morning yoga classes. The restaurant at Pranamar... More

We really enjoyed our 8 night stay at Pranamar. The staff is super friendly and accommodating, the food, fresh juices and cocktails were amazing, the location/decor/ambiance were really rustic adding an element of coziness and romance to the experience. And the yoga classes with Nancy were phenomenal!! The only reason I don't give 5 stars is due to the fact... More

We stayed at the Pranamar for 3 days, and it was one of our favorite experiences of the whole trip! The staff is so friendly and attentive, the resort itself is beautiful and relaxing, the yoga classes were challenging, and the restaurant was exceptional!

Pranamar is a small property directly at the beach with Bali/Thai style villas. The place is very relaxed and laid back but this is not in any way luxury no matter what level of accommodation you are reserving. If you are into yoga you will have something in common with most of the guests and you will have the opportunity... More

Excellent location. Strong sewage smell in our room and in some other parts of the hotel premises. Every staff member is nice and kind but housekeeping service was clumsy. Good food, attentive service at the restaurant and a good massage. Bad mattress, burned light bulbs in the villa and very poor wifi. It is nice, but it definitely is not... More
