One of the nicest Lodge that I've ever seen. Beautiful and comfortable houses with a own pool, a very nice area with a beautiful beach, outstanding friendly staff and VERY NICE owners. Thanks a lot for the beautiful stay, that very delicious food and the feeling to be at home.

Was very relaxing. Private, secluded and excellent attention to detail.
Really enjoyed our meals including a picnic hamper for lunch looking out over the ocean
A great way to relax and take some time out or have a romantic getaway

If there is one place to visit in South Africa, then it has to be Prana Lodge. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and luxurious and have their own garden, private plunge pool and fireplace (perfect for a romantic getaway). The owners and staff make you feel like you are their top priority at all times and the food is heavenly. The Thai themed spa is serene and with real Thai therapists, you know that you are getting an authentic experience. I could go on and on, but the point is that there is nothing to not LOVE about Prana. You leave this heavenly place feeling energized and inspired...

Wow, where to start! My fiancé and I had dreamed of a small wedding since we had decided to get married! One of our favorite local vacation spots is Cinsta Bay and when we found Prana Lodge we just knew this would be the perfect place to tie the knot!

The lodge went above and beyond our expectations to arrange our intimate wedding for 10. We initially wanted the ceremony on the beach but the wind wasn't playing along, this may have been a blessing in disguise as Megan and her team ended up setting up the deck that has the most spectacular ocean backdrop and everything went off smoothly!

From the amazing canapés served to the 5 star 4course dinner everything was perfect and so elegant,just as we had envisioned!

We stayed In the ruby suit which was done up beautifully for our wedding night, there was nothing that Prana did not think of! We ended our beautiful wedding with breakfast in our suite the next morning, amazing as could have been expected!

Thank you so much to Megan, Gail, Jaycee and the rest of the Prana team for making our dream wedding a reality!

We will definitely be going back!!!

Escape from the hustle and bustle of your daily life and enjoy the beautiful nature of South Africa.

Walk along the 21 km pristine beach, have your taste buds spoiled, enjoy the lush surroundigs and go for that gorgeous Thai massage!

We had a lovely room with our own plunge pool, inside bath and outdoor shower. Very spacious rooms with own lounge area and fully equiped for the discerning traveller. The design is fantastic.

Management is extremely helpful and friendly, this makes the place very special.

Megan and staff, thank you for looking after us!

This place was just wonderful. I came here with my husband 1 year after we were married for a way overdue honeymoon. I think it had just opened. There was a young couple managing it. We stayed 3 nights in 2011 and I will never forget it.
From the moment we arrived til the moment we departed we were treated so well. There weren't to many other people staying there at the time but it didn't mean they were staffed any less. Everyone was delightful and the room/suite/private bungalow was just amazing. it was super spacious and very inclusive with little snacks and drinks and a very nice plunge pool. The food served at the restaurant was delicious and the breakfast unforgettable. Everything so fresh and tasty. We got Thai massages as well in the SPA and I'm now forever sold on Thai massages. Never again a traditional massage for me. The Spa staff was great too, even if they spoke no english.
The owners also lent us a few bikes to go biking on the sandy beaches which I had never done before. It was great and there was not a soul on the beach.
I'm not just saying this all because I was in honeymoon bliss! Honestly it was great and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: I assume they are all as great as the one I had.

Prana lodge is designed around the vision of the owners to share the special peace in the natural forest on the Indian Ocean shoreline. It has all the elements needed to spend reconnecting with nature, yourself and your loved one - privacy, natural beauty, long walks, birdlife, superb dining, friendly and professional service. Not to forget the Thai spa, where the masseurs will ease away all your worldly cares.

Room Tip: If you don't need your personal pool, choose the room in the heart of the forest.
