The service was amazing; food was spectacular - the chef was able to provide wonderful vegetarian options even though I hadn't told them in advance that I would require this. The place is beautiful, the rooms are gorgeous and it was overall an amazing experience!

This hotel is absolutely amazing. The suites are beautiful, big and clean. The service by each and every one of the employees was outstanding. The food was delicious. The hotel is located in a perfect location inside a forest on a hill in front of the ocean. The welcome drinks and hot towels, the hostess guidance and treatment were superb. We would definitely and highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a wonderful and relaxing time in South Africa.

Private and relaxed lodge
We enjoyed the lodge very much, our only mistake is we did not plan to stay longer than 2 nights, wishing we could have spend a week there to relax.

A wonderful hotel with fantastic meals. The location is convenient to get to and access to the beach is good. The only minor issue for us was the WiFi was patchy in the room. Management is aware of the issue and is sorting it out

Lovely start to our South African honeymoon
We stayed at Prana Lodge for one night - but wished we had booked for longer. Everyone was very friendly and the service was excellent, particularly the in-room dining. The accommodation was huge - more like a small apartment than a hotel room - and really relaxing. The beach is stunning and we loved walking there, feeling safe and secluded. Highly recommended!
