“Best place ever to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

From pick-up at East London airport until drop-off at the same after three most impressive days in a beautiful, friendly, courteous, tranquil and personalised Lodge we have every been in RSA.
The spot of the Lodge is already perfect but what Gail and Tim created with Prana is desirable and too brilliant for words. You need to experience by yourselves!

Very luxury accommodation and extremely kind personnel. The accommodation was clean, had plenty of room and a romantic decoration. The dinner was delicious! Also enjoyed the relaxing massage. Beautiful sea view within just a 2 minutes walk.

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!!!
