South Africa is blessed with more than 2 500km of ocean-lapped coastline, spanning four provinces and offering a staggering degree of variation in landscape. Only one of these coasts, however, has been granted the title of Wild. The Eastern Cape’s Wild Coast stretches from East London until virtually the province’s border with KwaZulu-Natal, and is home to some of the...

Prana Lodge exceeds all exceptions. The attention to all details, amazing food, comfort apon comfort, beautiful rooms and personal attention from all staff; surpasses all expectations. You are treated like royalty and the entire ambiance is utterly luxurious. The Spa treatments are so indulgent and relaxing. When you leave Prana, you leave floating on a cloud.

I have been twice and it was fabulous both times. Staff lovely. Fantastic setting. Rooms gorgeous. And then there is the beach. A great place to chill. Food and wine brilliant. If only I could have one nearer.

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.

Thank you for your honest feedback and I am so pleased you enjoyed our spa. I am so sorry that you did not enjoy the Turquoise suite as much as your previous visit in our Citrine Suite. We would love you to visit again and then we could help you choose the best suite for your preferences.

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 is a real gem! All I had heard about Prana could not explain how amazing it is. Attention to detail, warmth, service and personal touches. Great location. Amazing suites. Privacy. The food OMG!! Just a really brilliant place. Highly recommend this lodge. My best part was the 'readers' brought to me with the menu. But the surprise Pvt breakfast...
