Prana del Mar is a deluxe, beachfront retreat center focusing on yoga retreats and yoga vacations. Located in a remote and tranquil setting on the Pacific Ocean, it is the perfect spot to relax, renew, and refresh. With luxurious rooms, delicious international cuisine, two beautiful yoga studios, a pool, hot tub, sauna, stunning gardens, and warm Mexican hospitality, Prana del Mar is an oasis of comfort and serenity. Come join us where the mountains and the desert meet the sea!
Prana del Mar is quite luxurious by the standards of most boutique eco-resorts and yoga retreat centers. For example, we have 16 spacious rooms and suites, each one with polished travertine-tiled floors, custom-made Indonesian teak and rattan furniture, resort-quality pillow-top mattresses, organic sheets and bath towels, travertine vanities and bathroom tile, and spacious balconies and terraces with ocean views.
Beyond our accommodations, we have a Community Building with full restaurant and bar, lap pool and hot tub, sauna, spa treatment rooms, lounges, rooftop deck, and meditation room. For those seeking a little pampering, we offer a variety of spa services - including several styles of massage, body wraps, body scrubs, reflexology, aromatherapy, and more.
We have two studios dedicated to yoga and meditation. One is 1850 square-foot yoga studio with an airy palapa roof, honey-colored bamboo floor, and vista of the Pacific to the west and the Sierra de la Laguna mountains to the east. Our second is more internally focused - an intimate space of 1000 square-feet with bamboo floors and a lovely garden view. We have five acres of xeriscaped gardens featuring native desert trees, plants, and succulents, and a stone labyrinth for quiet contemplation. At the front of our resort is a solitary beach of golden sand and crashing waves that guests will often have all to themselves.
Another aspect that makes us unique is our commitment to the environment. Although we have numerous luxurious features, this does not come at the expense of sustainability. All of our electricity is solar-powered, we treat all wastewater on-site and reuse it to irrigate the gardens, our salt water pool is solar-heated, our vegetable garden is organic, the floor of our yoga studio is strand-woven bamboo, our sheets and bath towels are organic, and the personal care products that we provide for our guests are also organic.
We are located in a serene and tranquil spot on the Baja coast surrounded by beach, ocean, mountains, and desert. We are close enough to local towns for excursions, but far enough away to feel very private and remote. Prana del Mar is the ultimate place to get away from it all - to deepen your yoga practice, to reconnect with nature, and to relax and revitalize.

I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to be a guest at Prana del Mar. The serene location, the exquisite property, the service, the decor, the yoga hall, the retreat, and Erik, all served to provide an outstanding and very special experience I will forever remember. Go. You will thank yourself and want to plan many future visits.

Prana del Mar is a dream-come-true. Erik has created a magical environment to complement the natural beauty of Baja, Mexico. The attention to detail is inspiring, and creates a comfortable and beautiful retreat. There are few places with the standard of care for guests that Prana del Mar provides. I would recommend it without hesitation!

I have been to many yoga retreat centers and found Prana del Mar to have the nicest studios, most accommodating staff, deluxe facilities, and cleanest property. The food was a variety of cuisines with the healthiest and freshest ingredients – and always delicious.
-Lindy Bolero, Seattle, WA
Everything about the retreat and the place exceeded my expectations. I loved the idea of being surrounded by nature and taking a quick walk to the beach every day from my room. Everything about the place made me feel so comfortable and serene. It was quite delightful to witness the love and the care that went in to building this gorgeous place.

Prana del Mar is a five-star yoga retreat center. The facilities are spacious, pristine, sparkling clean, and high-end. The staff is incredibly friendly and treat you both like royalty and part of the family at the same time. The food is clean, healthy, fresh, and some of the most tasty recipes I’ve ever experienced. The location is a dream come true – overlooking the ocean. Watching the whales, hearing the sounds of waves rock you to sleep each night, and enjoying the gorgeous skies at sunrise and sunset are just a few of my most cherished memories. The staff takes care of you and are extremely organized and professional with everything!

I just had to express once again how wonderful, incredible, and beautiful Prana del Mar is. Not just the physical structure – which was obviously built with painstaking care and loving vision – but the people, too. You and your staff made the week absolutely perfect. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Prana del Mar is a beautiful space with an amazing staff that is genuinely happy that you are there to experience what they have to offer. Erik always has his door open if you need anything and is diligent in making sure you are having a good time. Very organized and awesome staff! I feel that I’ve found a gem and hardly want it known, but can’t help but rave about it. I will definitely be visiting again soon.
