Prana del Mar Retreat & Wellness Center

Prana del Mar is a tranquil beachfront yoga retreat and wellness center located at the southern tip of Baja, Mexico near Cabo San Lucas. With 15 guest rooms and suites, delicious cuisine, a spa with swimming pool and jacuzzi, a spacious yoga studio, and a stunning beach just steps away, you will enjoy a wonderful respite from your daily routine.

Spend the day walking barefoot on miles of stunning beaches, practicing yoga in our airy studio, catching waves at one of the nearby surf breaks, riding horseback along the coast, hiking the rugged mountains, or lounging in the swimming pool. Renew and refresh with a deep, healing massage, a restorative aromatherapy treatment, a soak in the hot tub, or a nap in a hammock. Watch the sun sink into the Pacific as you dine on fresh, delicious - often organic - Mexican and international cuisine, sip the best margaritas of your life, laugh with friends new and old, and then admire the star-filled sky as you wander the path back to your suite to sink into a plush pillow-top bed, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves breaking on the beach.

Prana del Mar is located at the beach on five beautiful acres near the southern tip of the Baja peninsula. With the mountains to the east, the Pacific to the west, and the desert all around, they are comfortably nestled in a tranquil valley that provides an ideal setting for rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, and exploration.

Overall Rating: ★★★★★ (5)

Energy Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - We are entirely off-grid and all of our electrical power is solar-generated. All major appliances are Energy Star-rated and all lighting is warm CFL or LED. Guests are educated about our energy systems and are offered a tour and explanation of our various systems if they are curious for more in-depth information. Additionally, our pool is heated using unglazed solar collectors and we have ecologically-insulated hot water heaters that are wired to utilize excess photovoltaic energy to pre-heat domestic hot water.

Water Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - All of our water comes from our well and is processed by our on-site wastewater treatment plants. All of that water is recycled for the irrigation of our beautiful and tranquil Xeriscaped gardens. Our toilets are low flow and our showerheads are low-flow and aerated to give excellent water pressure at reduced consumption levels. Our organic towels and linens are changed at the request of our guests. All cleaning products are green/bio-degradable and we attempt to minimize their use to the extent possible.

Disposal Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - We recycle to the full extent possible here in Mexico and do our best to choose products whose containers and packaging can be recycled. Regrettably, there are not yet as many recycling facilities here in our area of Mexico as we would hope, but we see progress in this area. We compost all organic waste for use in our organic garden and our guest rooms have separate wastebaskets for organic and inorganic waste. We use cloth napkins and cloth handtowels rather than paper napkins and towels to reduce waste. We purchase organic personal care amenities – shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc. – in bulk and have in-room dispensers to decrease the waste of all those tiny plastic bottles. We provide filtered water throughout the property and give each retreat guests a free stainless steel water bottle to refill throughout their stay so that they do not use single-use plastic bottles.

Eco-Active Rating: ★★★★ (4)
Staff Comment - We educate staff and guests about our actions and are always attempting to make enhancements to the services we offer and our stewardship of the environment.

Protection Rating: ★★★★ (4)
Staff Comment - We make a concerted effort to protect our environment and share that concern with both our staff and guests. Our staff is primarily local, to the extent that that is possible. We are in a somewhat remote location with the nearest local housing being 15 minutes away, so it depends upon your definition. We do not have a specific written “constitution” – as we are an intimate retreat center rather than a large resort – but our policies are expressed to guests and staff alike in oral presentations and written orientation materials.
