The accommodations at Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat are on single, double or multiple occupancy basis. There are plenty of accommodation options for every budget and need at the hotel. Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat was built in the northern end of Santa Teresa, called Playa Hermosa, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The town is much less developed and more quiet than Santa Teresa and holds a magical charm and uniqueness. The hotel allows guests to feel at home in a sacred place. It is surrounded by nature but with all the luxuries and comforts a guest might desire. Situated directly on the beach, the villas, yoga studio, and restaurant hug the lines of the hotel's unique swimming pool with Balinese-inspired architecture and design. The studio is said to be one of the most beautiful in the country and inspires sacred connection and serenity.
