"Happiness and peacefulness. "
I will have to start by thanking the staff who tried their absolute best so I can have an amazing, worry free vacation. They were very accommodating and considerate of my food limitations.
The yoga teachers were superb and encouraged me to reach new milestones that I never thought were possible.
As a solo traveller, I sometimes struggle with having enough activities to fill up the day. In Bamboo Yoga, I was always engaged in between communal meals, yoga classes, socialising with other guests. I did not feel alone for a moment.
The bungalow itself is clean, tidy and has all the necessities you might need in addition to a cute hammock on the front porch where I used to chill every afternoon or evening.
Bamboo Yoga is located at the end of Patnem beach with the most gorgeous view of mountain, beach and rock formation. An image of paradise.
The food served was vegetarian friendly, fresh, light and super yummy. For someone like me who is not vegetarian, I was (surprisingly) in love with the food and didn't feel as if I'm missing anything.
I felt happy and peaceful and definitely intend to come back again.

"Excellent vacation spot on the beach"
The staff were very hospitable. The food was excellent, the yoga classes were well done and the massage options (particularly the Malayalam massage with herbs and turmeric, garlic etc by Mia) was fantastic. The visitors at the retreat were also very nice. The retreat spot is about an hour and a half away from the airport, but they can arrange pick up and drop off. Overall, a wonderful experience.

"First time at Yoga retreat"
I liked everything. Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. Yoga instructors are very skilled, communicative and friendly. Nice and quite location. Yoga classes at the ocean view sunset is incredible experience. Food is very tasty, everyday fresh salads, which was very important for us. The day schedule is well organized and balanced

I loved everything about my wknd here. Food was truly divine, service was amazing, location and amenities were perfect. The beach is BEAUTIFUL and the hotel is clean, fun, great vibes and energy. The decor is really nice and the overall look and feel of the hotel is great. The yoga/meditation sessions were really nice and the yoga areas were overlooking the beach and tucked away into a hillside, really gorgeous. Can't wait to come back again.

The staff at Bamboo were super friendly and helpful. Being collected from the airport was great. The food was delicious every day. The huts were so cute and comfortable. Staff kept the whole place clean & tidy. The location is perfect - at the quiet end of a beautiful beach. The yoga was great, it varied everyday with good explanations and a good balance of being physically challenging and relaxing. I LOVED the whole thing and wanted to stay longer.

"Rejuvenate in a peaceful warm space"
Bamboo is very well organised from start to finish, airport pick-up, luggage etc.
The accommodation is dream like and earthy, the food is nutritious and with just the right amount of sugar! Yoga was blissful with the sound of the ocean. The staff were very accommodating and genuine in making everyone’s stay enjoyable. Zibby the Spa therapist was out of this working, technique was amazing. I would highly recommend and will definitely be returning. Earthy and wonderful, not pretentious 😊

"Little slice of paradise"
Bamboo yoga retreat was all round an incredible experience. The beach was beautiful and peaceful, the staff were amazing and really friendly. The yoga classes and meditation were great due to the great teaching of the instructors, but also because of their warm energy and how friendly and encouraging they were. I didn’t want to leave.

A big thank you to the entire Bamboo Yoga team for making my time in Goa unforgettable in the best way possible!
My stay there was perfect, starting from the yoga lessons themselves, where I learned a ton of new and useful things, to food and accommodation, that both were fantastic, to the breathtaking view of the ocean which you could enjoy not only during your meals but also during your yoga practice.

"Paradise at the Bamboo Yoga Retreat "
We had a fabulous 9 days at the Bamboo Yoga Retreat. The staff were all super starting with the administrators (Suzanne and Christina) and the young gentlemen who make us amazing smoothies and assisted us with anything we needed to the Massage Therapist Mia, who I will miss immensely.
The yoga instruction was the best I ever had. Jenn and Myria were not only super enthusiastic but also provided us with safe instruction. Jenn provided a special class to instruct us on safe yoga practices and also on ways to improve our yoga stance and save our wrists and shoulders. Both instructors always pointed out safe ways to perform each pose with several options for the beginner to the advanced yogi.
I appreciated the encouragement and the big smiles.
The resort in itself was super clean and very safe with loads of restaurants for your evening meal or you could also order food from the kitchen at the resort. The meals at the retreat were very good with loads of options like fresh salads and fruit with yougort and vegetarian indian food. My favority smoothie was the welcome smoothie with mint and pineapple.

"A pleasant surprise!"
Bamboo Yoga Retreat was far better than I expected. I loved the low key atmosphere, the relaxed staff who treat you like family, the eco-friendly huts with outdoor private showers and most importantly the vibe created by other guests, usually whom are also solo travelers, that welcomed each new guest to the group with open arms. The huts are comfortable and have just what you need, a welcome difference to bland hotel rooms.
The yoga instructors were lovely and the fairly relaxed schedule of twice a day yoga with a large brunch buffet meant there was just the right amount of structure to encourage people to get together while allowing you some time alone if you felt like it.

"Time for yourself "
Location, ambiance, friendliness and attentiveness of all staff, instructors professionalism, just the whole experience as a first timer at a Yoga retreat and to India went beyond my expectation.
from United States, December 2018
The yoga sessions were excellent. Jen and Miara were amazing. They offered many different levels for each pose which I really appreciated allowing me to try some more advanced poses I had not previously attempted while also not assuming myself and the other students were experts who could get into advanced poses easily. I felt the classes were equally geared to beginners and advanced students.
The accommodations at bamboo were somewhat rustic with outdoor bathrooms and a simple ceiling fan (which did not always work because the electricity was a bit unreliable) but I found it perfect for the environ. I came here to disconnect and recenter which bamboo catered to perfectly.
The beach was beautiful and decently quiet making for a serene setting
