Accommodations

Upstairs:

Prana del Mar has built elegant villas all with beautiful ocean views and verandas. Each room has travertine-tiled floors and bathrooms, pillow-top mattresses and beautiful teak furniture.   Upstairs or downstairs, you really can’t go wrong.

The upstairs suites have two queens beds and are best for roommates.  The rooms have a private bath and a living and dining room with full kitchen.  There’s plenty of space to stretch out and relax after you open the disappearing pocket doors to soak up the Pacific.

Downstairs:

Each downstairs room has a king bed with a seating area and a jacuzzi tub with separate shower.  If needed there is an additional queen size murphy bed.  These rooms are perfect for couples or those traveling solo and, just like upstairs, they boast gorgeous ocean views and your own outdoor veranda for chilling.

Prana provides a delicious and healthy vegetarian cuisine with fish or seafood a couple times a week.  Dietary needs or restriction can be accommodated within Prana’s purview provided that you notify us at least six weeks in advance.
