Perfect for contemplative yoga retreats

I stayed here for a wonderful yoga retreat in November 2017. It was lovely, very well designed and a great place to contemplate and rejuvenate. The food was spectacular! Every meal, a treat. You might want to arrange a cooking class there if you have time. Its out in the desert near a choppy ocean which is better for meditation and horseback rides than swimming. I'd go there again!



Paradise in Baja Prana Del Mar is a dream—with beautifully designed, ecologically aware private and public spaces, a stunning pristine beach, caring and attentive staff, gorgeous food. Tai Hubbert, the founder of Sword & Lotus, facilitated the best yoga retreat I’ve ever attended. I would go back for another of her retreats at the fantastic Prana Del Mar in a heartbeat.
