Review of Prana Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 01 Feb 2024
The most amazing hidden gem - a true luxury lodge ! The Suites are awesome they have everything you absolutely you will need one doesn't want to leave the room. Highlights were the private plunge pool, the outdoor shower and the enormous comfortable bed. Treat yourself for at least 2 nights you will not be sorry. Will definitely go back there.

    You would swear you are in another country. Always friendly and courteous service. The private beach and the Diamond Villa are my favourites. A gem within the Eastern Cape. As a result I go there every month to rejuvenate my spirit

    Reviewed 23 December 2023 via mobile

    We stayed at Prana 18-22 Dec for a private family/wedding function.
    The site itself was clean whilst feeling like you were walking through the forest with nature surrounding you. The staff are superb and cannot do enough for you, special thanks to Heather, Kay, Elvis, Andre, Sharon & Simba for their help throughout our stay. The suite was beautiful with its own private garden/pool area - we had a visit from the family of monkeys! Our only comment for the tanzanite suite would be the option of having an indoor shower as it was either take one outside or run a bath which weren’t ideal if we got back late. We only had breakfast in the restaurant and again, the staff were brilliant and the food was delicious. If you are vegetarian make sure to clearly state this with ‘no meat’ when ordering as a couple menus differed slightly with their offerings (French toast & omelette).

    The beach access may be tricky for some but if you are able to, definitely take the stroll for a wonderful view.

    Truly a 5* stay. We hope to visit Prana Lodge again!

    We had a wonderful stay. When we were shown the room, we were stunned by how big it was. Every little detail was considered, also in the service provided. Excellent dinners, beautiful breakfast - it was a real treat for us to be there.

    Prana Lodge: first visit & definitely not the last. On arrival, the airport transfer arrangements were hospitable. Communication with us upon arrival from the lodge was excellent to ensure that we had met with the correct person at the airport. Warm Welcome from reception. Our rooms were heated on arrival because the weather was cold. Food was delicious, The staff there are so professional & do not constantly bother you. Daily baths were run & prepared for us on. What an Absolutely Amazing, Relaxing & Rejuvenating Experience.

    The food was fresh however could be a bit more flavorful.

    The beach access was quite a hike, we would have appreciated an easier access point or approach.

    The Lodge, The Staff, The facilities, The Spa experience, The Rooms & Overall Service were all Excellent

    Hi Ktholo,

    Wow, what a splendid review. Thank you so much for taking time to write us this lovely review. It was great having you with us. I truly appreciate your kind words and will be sure to share the sentiment with the team. The whole experience is carefully curated, and we try our best to ensure that each guests leaves the lodge relaxed and rejuvenated. I am so glad that this was truly evident and resulted in an unforgettable experience that we look forward to repeating upon your return.
    Regarding your dining experience, your feedback about food flavor has been shared with the culinary team.
    We are exploring the option of what can be done about our beach stairs but have environmental constraints regarding building on dunes. Hopefully we will find a solution.
    Thank you for your valuable feedback, and we appreciate your support.

    We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

    With Love

    The Prana Team!
