“Just a fabulous Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

We spent two nights at Prana and felt as if we've relaxed for two weeks. We still marvel as to how they got some many things right at such a small establishment from the impeccable service to absolutely great food to ensured privacy by private villas with plunge pools and gardens. Our two minor concerns were a) relatively slow internet access from room and b) the massage treatment, whist it was good was still a bit disappointing after having experienced the rest of the resort.

Looking for an ideal relaxing and quiet (or romantic) break-away, then Prana Lodge is the perfect spot! Situated in lush natural forest with lots of birdlife you will be pampered in the spa, enjoy a perfect dinner, complete privacy and a perfectly quiet environment!

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
