Wow so wow!!!! One of the best lodges I have ever been to. Attention to detail, super friendly and competent staff can't wait to go back. Scrumptious meals beautifully presented and served by very friendly people. We stayed in the Diamond suite, beautifully decorated with lovely views and very private.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights on our recent visit to RSA, I had found it on the web, we wanted somewhere quite remote, small, but luxurious and peaceful, Prana Lodge with only 8 suites certainly fitted the bill. Our room was immaculate, and all the staff were highly professional caring and attentive without ever appearing intrusive,...

Fabulous lunch in such tranquil surroundings - were shown a suite and were blown away by the luxury of every aspect. I would recommend Prana Lodge to the fussiest of travellers. What a pleasure to be able to recommend a place in the Eastern Cape with golf at Olivewood just around the corner. We shall certainly return.

Why everyone concentrates on the popular destinations of the Western Cape is understandable but it does mean that our discovery of this hidden gem on the beautiful, more remote Wild Coast of the E Cape makes it that much more special. Prana Lodge sits in the forest of the coastal dunes, each exquisitely equipped cottage hidden from its neighbour with...

The Lodge is situated in a beautiful location in an indigenous forest with plentiful bird life. The beach is glorious, perfect for long walks, swimming and dolphin watching. The food was scrumptious, spa treatments excellent and overall, the experience was great! Thank you!

Excellence at its best. Hospitality perfected. We felt special and pampered. We sadly did not get to go to the spa as it was fully booked. The sea and its endless beach was so inviting but it was ready to rain so we didn't swim. Our only regret was it was too short a visit. You need more time to...
