I will start by saying that I have no affiliation with anyone at Pranamar. My wife and i just got back from a great week at Pranamar. We choose Costa Rica this trip as we didn't have 2 weeks to go to europe this year but wanted to do something other than go to the beach in Hawaii. Santa Teresa is like going to Hawaii but 75 years ago without all the commercial crap and prices. We had bungalow #1 and it exceeded our expectations. The rooms were clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Our day would start with Nancy in the Yoga Shala followed by a wonderful breakfast then exploring, beach time or just hanging in our beautiful room. The food there is outstanding. We tried several other places to eat but Prananmar always came out on top. The chef loves to sing in italian while cooking and it is very entertaining. that brings me to the staff... Everyone is kind, helpful and wants you to have a good time. The owner ( Fred??) spent an hour with us going thru the landscaping on the property. In the short time that the hotel has been there, the plants are doing amazing. We love working in our garden and to share his love for his creative plant combinations was something you don't usually get. I would be remise if I didn't mention Nancy. My wife and I have have really been working on our yoga practice for the past year and Nancy was wonderful to be with for the week. She had a wonderful way of relating to us and our time in the yoga shala was tremendous. We took a private lesson from Nancy which I would recommend it. We also took surf lessons that week which was fun and a treat. We are from Northern California where we wear wetsuits year round.
All and all you can tell that we had a great time . We got some good rest, practiced our yoga and ate some great food. We are fans of Prananmar!!
