Great lodge surrounded by lush gardens. Rooms are in their own villas are spacious, well appointed and with their own plunge pools. The food at breakfast and dinner was first rate. The only downside is that the villas do not have sea views (apart from maybe one or two), though the beach is only a 5 minute walk. Lovely setting...

We were fortunate enough to eat lunch at Prana Lodge despite not being guests at the hotel. We had a 5 course tasting menu which was absolutely delicious. Chef Jaycee is obviously very talented and everything we ate was perfection. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway.

We spent 4 days at this lodge. Highly recommended to anyone who likes luxury. Beautiful grounds and the suites are like a little sanctuary. The food quality is suburb. The staff members are so professional and helpful. The spa is also worth a visit. This place is a true gem. The beach is gorgeous but a bit steep to go...
