The earthy Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat are the creation and vision of years of experience and passion from a diverse range of people belonging to different backgrounds. Their extended family is a potpourri of several cultures and nationalities and interests, and they all work together as a close knit eco passionate family.

Each two-story villa features two air-conditioned bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and plenty of decks and terraces.

If that’s not enough, finely appointed granite stone tubs encircled by tropical vegetation gives an unusual finish to their open-air bathrooms. Adorned with imported, hand-crafted Indonesian furniture, the villas exude a relaxed, intimate vibe complemented by the natural surroundings. All Pranamar’s four poolside villas include a personal pool entrance, 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, fans, screens, small bar fridge, garden bathroom with granite stone tub, laptop-size security safes, Wi-Fi, and 2 king beds or 1 king and 2 twins.
