“Champagne is the closest description”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

As they were fully booked, we got a day spa package which was fabulous, the massage, steam and Jacuzzi made us ravenous for lunch, which was really, really good.
They have a very competent chef who produced absolutely immaculate food, the service was great but the most important aspect of this place is the location.
You have a perpetual orchestra of bird song in your ears all the time, this is an indigenous forest with winding perfectly swept paths leading from one zone to the next - paradise truly, with the sea and my favourite beach just a short step away.
We shall be back.

a beautiful, serene place to stay. very homely and personal. the chef is brilliant and the food divine. they really take care of your needs. the location is a bit out of the way but they're worth the visit. they catered for extended family with great ease and no fuss. i will highly recommend Prana Lodge and it lives up to its 5 star standard.

Incredible staff, rooms, food, location and wellness center . well worth it,loads of pampering, just the nicest people around. the rooms are all individual mini houses, with their own plunge pool, outdoor private shower, luxurious baths, the finest bed linen and well appointed lounge.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

The Parna Lodge is peaceful, guests are limited so it does not seem crowded on one hand but not lonely on the other. The suites are not visible to each other which is great. The service is very good with staff discreet but also forthcoming if you need it! The accommodation is of a very high standard and the food very well prepared, that caters for a more sophisticated palate. Travel down the dunes and the beach is amazing, a little 'sauvage' when we were there and the water is still a little chilly this far down the coast. All in all a I would highly recommend staying at Prana. Keep in mind in high season it is quite pricey, go in off season for a real value for money experience. I think I will return with husband then!!

My family was traveling through S Africa from USA to visit our son who is serving in the Peace Corps in Lesotho. Prana Lodge was exceptional in EVERY way. Highly recommend it! Food was superb. Private and relaxing.

Beautiful setting, excellent service, friendly staff and management, delicious food and great value. Especially appreciated the attention to detail like providing umbrellas for the beach, packed beach bag in each room as well as the chef's creativity in the vegetarian options. Thank you!
