The Lodge is situated in a beautiful location in an indigenous forest with plentiful bird life. The beach is glorious, perfect for long walks, swimming and dolphin watching. The food was scrumptious, spa treatments excellent and overall, the experience was great! Thank you!

Excellence at its best. Hospitality perfected. We felt special and pampered. We sadly did not get to go to the spa as it was fully booked. The sea and its endless beach was so inviting but it was ready to rain so we didn't swim. Our only regret was it was too short a visit. You need more time to...

We stayed here just after our wedding for our mini-moon.What a beautiful hidden gem! The rooms are massive and really well decorated. There is a fireplace in each room which was great as it was cold while we were there. The most comfy bed I have ever slept in! Lovely big bath and very nice outdoor shower. We were both...

Gail and her delightful staff have a little slice of paradise here. We booked 3 suites for 7 adults, all were beautifully presented, very spacious with their own private plunge pools. Everything spotlessly clean, so many extra little touches in each suite to allow for complete privacy throughout your stay. Steep sand dune descent onto a pristine beach, completely unspoiled,...

In order to avoid confusion, I would say that despite a price point well above anything for miles and miles around, the Prana Lodge is a superlative site, with fine staff and simply sublime in all the aspects as a place to stay. We saw a Duiker on the grounds and it was lovely. The staff even gets points for...

I've visited Prana numerous times be it for an overnight, romantic weekend or just a massage in the spa. I've also had the privilege of getting married at this resort.

We stayed for two nights in December and all I can say is this Lodge is world class. I initially booked a spa treatment and was so blown away by the beauty of the place and friendliness of the staff, that we booked a last minute stay. Service, food, accommodation all 10 / 10. Can't wait to go back!
