Chintsa Bay, East London, South Africa, July 2, 2022 / TRAVELINDEX / The team behind one of the Eastern Capes premier boutique hotels, Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve are proud to announce the acquisition of Prana Lodge, a unique 5-star luxury beach lodge and wellness spa set in a pristine forest alongside the spectacular Chintsa Bay, just outside East London and within minutes of rolling savannah and private game viewing.
Prana Lodge is a well-known luxury retreat on the beach and is the perfect addition to the growing portfolio of boutique properties owned and managed by the Oceana team. Both Prana Lodge and Oceana will now be managed and marketed by the teams’ Management Company, Authentic Retreats.
Chris Roberts, MD of Oceana & Authentic Retreats says;
“Prana Lodge is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and we’re extremely proud to continue to build upon the Davidson family’s legacy. The product offering in this beautiful beachfront destination is phenomenal, and we as a team are hugely excited to grow upon the successes of the much loved, unique Prana Lodge experience”.
Gail Davidson, MD of Prana Lodge says;
“Authentic Retreats will be taking over the management and marketing of Prana Lodge from the 1st of August 2022. Plans have been put in place for a seamless handover, with an emphasis on continuity of the excellent guests experiences that Prana Lodge is known for. It is with a heavy heart that we say farewell to our small piece of paradise. A paradise that has offered us the ability live and love what is so fundamental to the wellbeing of each of us – nature’s own beautiful existence and how she revitalises our souls at times least expected. Being able to offer this experience in the way we have with warm hearts, warm smiles, passion, and commitment, eases the burden of a goodbye.”
