For my wife and me, looking for a relaxing place to practice and improve our yoga, Pranamar proved to be the ideal setting: quiet, beautiful, clean, and friendly. Offers great diversity of activities to supplement the yoga practice: swimming, surfing, stand up paddling, birding, or reading in a hammock listening to the ocean. The dining was superb, healthy and delicious,...

I really enjoyed Pranamar! The staff truly tries to make guests feel cared for here. So friendly and helpful. Prettiest yoga studio I have ever practiced in, with ocean sounds in the background and serenity-inspiring Balinese decor. Spectacular sunsets and fabulous massages. Gardens are lush and well tended. Hammocks on our villa's porch and on the beach were my preferred...
