Pranamar means Vital Energy and Ocean

The hotel’s name is an indicator of what the property aspires to. “Prana” in Sanskrit means “vital energy” and “breath”. “Mar” means ocean in Spanish. What more wellness-focused that a space inspired by the uplifting energy at Pranamar.  You can`t get more wellness-focused that this philosophy and what Pranamar was based on when it was created.

One of Pranamar`s specialties is yoga whether you would like to join a daily class or be part of a yoga retreat.  The Yoga Shala is nestled into the lush, tropical gardens on the property and welcomes you to be part of the yoga energy that is so present in Pranamar.   Whether you a beginner or a teacher, Pranamar is a beautiful place for yoga, meditation, and connection with other people and with your inner self which is key to a wellness experience.

Spa treatments with views of the beach, with the sound of the waves and the freshness from the sea breezes is the perfect combination to immerse yourself into your massage and the specialized treatments the qualified therapists have prepared for you.

The range of massages and focused treatments look to stimulate, relax and restore your body and spirit from the stress and rush of daily life.  Your vacation should be a time to escape the routine and the bad habits we tend to adopt; the therapeutic benefits a massage will heal and revive especially when it is by the beach!

Wellness is healthy food and drinks

A state of vacation wellness includes the quality of the food and drink you have while relaxing.  Santa Teresa has an amazing number of wonderful eateries and has become a real foodie’s mecca.

One of these great restaurants is the one you have on the property while staying at Pranamar.  Just as Pranamar is focused on your wellbeing from a holistic perspective, the Kavita Restaurant is the fusion of fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, seafood and other ingredients of the highest quality converted into creative and healthy dishes.

This is casual dining and where you will perceive an Asian influence with native touches to create a culinary experience that “nourish the body and enliven the senses”. Take a seat and enjoy the food, the ambiance and the views of the gardens and the beach beyond.  It is part of the wellness experience.

Wellness is a Pranamar specialty and a favorite place for visitors of all walks of life that unite in this beautiful place to connect with others and to focus quality time and practices to achieve a balance of body, mind, and soul.  Your time may include yoga, spa treatments, relaxing by the pool, walking along the white sanded beach, inhaling the spectacular sunsets or just in quiet contemplation with the beach as your backdrop.

Pranamar is Wellness and looks forward to your visit! Come and refresh and relax in this breathtaking destination.
