Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room we were allocated had no ambiance compared to the other suite we stayed. We stayed this time in the Turq room. Before that in the citrine room - absoloute bliss. The rates are quite steep and we we thought having to pay for the cappucino's could have been wavered.

We loved our stay at Prana Lodge. The beach setting is just too magical (like 10 kms of beach just for the lodge), we spent two nights in their forest suite which was beautifully decorated with everything you need for a lush, romantic getaway. Their food was delish too. Would totally go back!

It's not easy to find a place which can make a business trip feel like a retreat. Prana was able to do that for me. The staff & service were amazing and the meals were great too. Slept like a baby in the very luxurious rooms.

This hotel does everything just right.The rooms have everything you could imagine needing,the service is 100% and appears to be effortless, and the food is magnificent. The only criticism is the fact that you have no views from your room ( unless you go for the diamond suite). This is because of the semi jungle location and the design of...

What an awesome venue! We were pampered at the spa with a relaxing massage and facial before being served a delicious 4 course dinner. Staff were friendly, accommodating and very professional. I would definitely recommend Prana Lodge.

Wow so wow!!!! One of the best lodges I have ever been to. Attention to detail, super friendly and competent staff can't wait to go back. Scrumptious meals beautifully presented and served by very friendly people. We stayed in the Diamond suite, beautifully decorated with lovely views and very private.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights on our recent visit to RSA, I had found it on the web, we wanted somewhere quite remote, small, but luxurious and peaceful, Prana Lodge with only 8 suites certainly fitted the bill. Our room was immaculate, and all the staff were highly professional caring and attentive without ever appearing intrusive,...
