I really enjoyed Pranamar! The staff truly tries to make guests feel cared for here. So friendly and helpful. Prettiest yoga studio I have ever practiced in, with ocean sounds in the background and serenity-inspiring Balinese decor. Spectacular sunsets and fabulous massages. Gardens are lush and well tended. Hammocks on our villa's porch and on the beach were my preferred...

I stayed here during my YTT and cannot express my gratitude to this amazing place. This property was truly a magical place to study and live during my training. The rooms, the staff, the food exceeded expectation-not to mention the location. Every day we would break to watch the sun set over the Pacific. If you ever have the chance...
