All the boutique beach bungalows at Bamboo Yoga are designed to blend beautifully with the breathtaking natural surroundings. Built using local organic materials every season after the Monsoon rains, they are simply stylish, comfortable, private and eco-friendly!

Located just steps from the beach, our bungalows are designed to help you reconnect with nature. Whether watching the eagles soar overhead from the hammock on your balcony, or falling asleep to the sound of the waves, the normal stresses of life melt away and you will feel open to a more profound yoga practice.

All the accommodation has one double or two single (twin) beds with comfortable European style mattresses, good linens and mosquito netting, set in a spacious airy room with plenty of room to hang your clothes and store your belongings and attached bathrooms with western-style toilets. Constructed to make use of the natural ventilation from the cooling breeze, they also have ceiling fans for more tropical times of the year.

All of our beach bungalows have beautiful natural panoramic views or sea views overlooking Patnem beach, and you can choose between an Ocean Glimpse or Ocean Shala Bungalow, with partial views of the Arabian Sea, or a Temple Garden Bungalow, which is quieter at night with its peaceful garden setting.

Regular housekeeping is available, with fresh linens on request, although we ask guests to bring their own towels for the beach. The bungalows can be locked when you go out, and free Wi-Fi is available in the lounge if you need to stay connected. We operate a no single-use plastic policy, so guests are asked to bring their own water flasks or holders (with free refills available on site), or they can purchase these from our shop.

Bamboo Yoga Retreat wants you to feel safe, relaxed and in harmony with nature to get the most out of your yoga holiday or yoga retreat at Bamboo Yoga Retreat in Goa.

Program

Daily yoga classes are held in our Ocean Shala right on Patnem beach. With nothing between you and the Arabian ocean, it is the ultimate spot to salute the sun, whilst the sea breeze keeps you comfortable even in tropical temperatures.

Bamboo Yoga Retreat also holds daily sessions in our Temple Shala, built on an ancient Hindu site. With a deck overlooking the sacred mountain at the end of Patnem beach, its perfect for a quieter spiritual practice and meditation.

People from all backgrounds and levels of experience are welcome - from yoga devotees to those looking to regenerate from a stressful life, or if you simply want a healthy holiday combining classes and treatments with getting a tan! And whether gathering as a group or traveling solo, we create a warm welcoming atmosphere so that everyone feels at home, with group dinner nights under the stars.

Retreat location

Bamboo Yoga Retreat is located at the far southern end of beautiful Patnem beach in Canacona, South Goa. We are close to the acclaimed Agonda beach and one beach down from the famous Palolem beach with its wide selection of souvenir stalls, restaurants, and nightlife.

Goa is India's smallest - and some would say most friendly - state, boasting some of the best beaches in Asia. However, it's not just sand, sea, and sunsets. Goa's mix of Indian and Portuguese heritage means you will find white churches poking out from the coconut palms alongside Hindu temples. It is a very safe place for guests to arrive alone and go out at night.

Whilst some of north Goa has suffered from over-development, the far south is still unspoiled, with its lush mountain range, beautiful backwaters, and long golden beaches. It is against this peaceful tropical backdrop that Bamboo runs its yoga holidays and retreats.

Local town Chaudi, a five-minute drive away, has banks and ATMs, a supermarket, well-stocked chemists, and a colorful Saturday fruit and veg market. Patnem Strip has a useful mix of cafes, money exchange and travel agents, and shops selling clothing and souvenirs alongside everyday essential such as toiletries.

Whilst social life in Patnem mostly consists of some sunset cocktails at one of the beach shacks, with occasional live music nights, there are regular headphone parties in Palolem, and a weekly night with international DJs at Leopard Valley, an incredible outdoor club in the jungle on the way to Agonda beach.

Food

Like every part of our ethos, it is all about flexibility and balance. It is wholesome and nutritious, cooked with love and without compromising on flavor. At Bamboo Yoga Retreat, our restaurant focuses on healthy locally sourced food, organic wherever possible, and international cooking by our team of Nepalese chefs.

To start your day, we prepare a freshly squeezed juice of the day, which could be watermelon and ginger, or pineapple lemon and mint to cleanse your body and give you an energy boost for your sun salutations. There is also a big fresh tropical fruit salad every morning.

A big brunch is served after the morning yoga session, homemade yogurt, local bread, eggs, and muesli, with some Indian-inspired vegetable dishes and salads for those who've built up an appetite with their exertions. And then time to relax and watch the waves from our beach lounge with herbal tea or Indian chai.

A selection of snacks, salads, super juices, and smoothies are available all day at our restaurant, along with daily specials based around seasonal produce from the local market. Bamboo Yoga Retreat serves a selection of teas and locally baked cookies in the afternoon before your yoga session to give you an energy boost.

For dinner our menu changes daily, and includes delicious Indian and Asian vegetarian dishes, salads, fresh sustainable fish and seafood is also possible to order on the day. All of it is lovingly prepared to help your body's restoration and growth, but most of all to taste great! Dinner can be ordered a la carte, or there is a big buffet in the restaurant if you are on a retreat.

Special meals around a communal table will be held every week for yoga holidays, and we also put a table on the beach under the stars for special occasions.

They operate a no single-use plastic policy, and therefore guests are asked to bring their own flasks or water bottles or to purchase these from our store. We offer refillable mineral water onsite and use filtered water in our kitchen.

Things to do (optional)

If you fancy a day off the mat, of have some time after your yoga retreat, there are some wonderful places to visit in Goa. From boat trips to spot dolphins and kayaking to secret coves, to exploring the coastline by scooter. Drive through picturesque fishing villages to the turtle-nesting beach of Galjibag, or seek out the freshwater lagoon at Cola beach and the spectacular sea views from Cabo de Rama Fort.

We also have our very own Kayak and Paddleboard which are available to guests for hire.

Nature lovers will enjoy Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary, one of the world's biodiversity hotspots just a few kilometers south of Patnem. Whether or not you catch a glimpse of an elusive leopard or a troop of monkeys, the mountainous jungle scenery is spectacular.

If you're an architecture buff, take a trip to the colonial Latin quarter in Panjim, Goa's new capital, and to Old Goa, the historic city of the Portuguese eastern empire. The Lunch Club by KOKOindia offers a unique cultural experience beyond the beach, with a private tour of one of Goa's grand mansions, and authentic Indo-Portuguese lunch in a restored Palacio.

Shoppers and souvenir seekers will love the weekly flea and night markets in north Goa, where you can find everything from silk scarves and silver jewelry to sandals, sarongs, and spices. Remember to haggle - it's all part of the experience!
