Stayed for 3 days in April after spending 4 days further south. What a great experience. We watched sloths, monkeys and toucans while lounging in the pool. Very tranquil and away from the hustle and bustle but it's all just a 10 minute ride away. The hosts were fabulous and tailored our stay based on our likes including breakfasts and...

Mark and John are some of the nicest most professional people you could ever hope to meet. They make you feel like you are family from the moment they greet you for the massage and are very attentive to you and your bodies needs. I had the best Thai massage I have ever had with Mark. I literally passed out...

Prana Rainforest Retreat is an amazing couples paradise from the beautiful Bali decor to the private pool and yoga/hammock area overlooking a waterfall. Mark and Jon took such great care of us, serving us the most delicious food and recommending great restaurants with gorgeous views. We cannot wait to come back!

Prana Rainforest Retreat is by far the best lodging experience we have ever had on vacation. Mark and Jon are the most wonderful hosts and tended to our every need. The meals they prepared were outstanding. Every single dish was out of this world. They made us feel like we were part of the family. They also gave us great...

My partner and I travelled to costa rica especially to stay at Prana Rainforest Retreat for a relaxing, healthy, calm vacation (a honeymoon of sorts) and Prana far surpassed our expectations! It truly was one of the most remarkable, luxurious, relaxing, healthy and stimulating vacations we have taken. The private, single-couple retreat on the edge of the rainforest with many...

As we plan our upcoming vacation, we are having trouble finding something that will provide us with as amazing of an experience as what we receive at Prana back in August 2014. Mark and Jon were responsive and accommodating and we finalized the details of our trip. Upon arrival, they recommended a great local restaurant on route from the airport...

We stayed at Prana Rainforest Retreat at the beginning of our trip and our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer. This is, by far, the most relaxing place we have ever stayed in. The guest villa is absolutely perfect. It is very spacious, offers full privacy (including the pool and garden area), great relaxing rainforest views and sounds...

We just returned from a week at Prana Rainforest Retreat. This is, by most measures, the nicest place that we have ever stayed. But, it is probably not for everyone. There are a few things that prospective guests should know. First, the road to the resort is challenging: steep, curved, and partially unpaved. We rented a 4WD mini-SUV, and it...

Prana Rainforest Retreat is exactly what I think of when I dream of an ideal vacation villa.

To say that this place is wonderful is an understatement. The property is stunning, quiet, and off the beaten path for ultimate privacy. Mark and Jon made the trip!
