The staff were warm and friendly and couldn’t do enough to help. The other guests were also very nice. I left feeling relaxed and invigorated in equal measure

"Great place for beginners who are serious about yoga"

The overall atmosphere was consistently pleasant. All facilities were very clean. The treatments were amazing! The instructor very kind and caring, the staff too. He drove us to the beach and into town for shopping and picked us back up.

"Best sneak peak to a healthy lifestyle "

It was an amamazing experience to stay at Lotus Nature Cure, all the sessions are very well structured and very relaxing. Dr. Patil is a very warm person and is full of knowledge. I'm taking away memories as well as loads of learning from this short course. Thank you.

"Great experience"

Great variety in food as well as excellent taste - don't think we ate the same meal twice during the four days.

Got to learn about yoga philosophy more in depth as well - we had the opportunity to talk to a doctor about our respective doshas, or constitution.

All the staff there were very friendly/kind and went out of their way to help if you wanted anything. The massages were very thorough and relaxing.

The yoga sessions were well guided and within our ability range. The classes for us were also small - only 3 students which was good.

Really scenic accommodation - doing yoga in garden each morning was really invigorating!

Overall exceedingly good value for money - would definitely go again.

"Very relaxing 4 days! "

The therapies!!! The therapies exceeded all expectations, they were all over an hour and was the highlight of our retreat, the overall experience was hugely relaxing and was exactly what my friend and I were looking for. The treatments were catered for each individual which was great, the food was also incredible, I was very nervous things would be spicy however, the ayurvedic food was delicious, the yoga and pranayama was also relaxing. Lovely location overlooking the forest and near to a beautiful quite beach. Highly recommend! The perfect 4 days to shut off from the world, my friend and I also used this opportunity to do a digital detox and it was fantastic. We felt safe whilst we were there and left feeling extremely relaxed! Thank you to the wonderful team!

"A Hidden Gem of a Place"

I couldn't have asked for a more restful, nourishing and caring environment to experience a few days of self care. This is a very authentic personal experience being a guest within a compound where the family is also living with a small group of people. I thoroughly enjoyed the healthy home cooked meals, yoga twice a day in beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful Ayurveda treatments. I look forward to returning.

"Great times with great people"

Dr. Patil was amazing. He has a great understanding of yoga on and off the mat. He made me feel at home from the second I arrived. The treatments were very relaxing they give you the treatment that most suits your needs. Yoga on the beach as the sunsets was a highlight. It was a great way to end my traveling. He organized a taxi to the airport for me and let me have a very late check out.

We arrived as a family of four.

Mother and three grown up children.Mother very keen on yoga,children willing to give it a go,if they had to!

The twice daily yoga sessions were perfect for our ability,pushing us as far as we could achieve,with clear instruction and perfecting our poses.

The food was healthy,plentiful and not highly spiced.

The spa treatments were far superior to anything I have experienced in the past.Strong ,full body massage with hot stone/ exfoliation/steam.

My daughter was too embarrassed to have full body massage but they were happy to spend the same time with back and arm massages,without causing embarrassment to her,followed by steam treatments.

Dr Patil was happy to drop us to the beach and pick us up,in the free time.We could have borrowed bicycles and travelled around.

He could not have been more helpful and caring.

"Wondeful yoga retreat"

This was a small retreat which I liked very much. Dr Patil teaches a very nice Hatha yoga class along with pranayama breathing, with variations each day. The morning class was outside the retreat house on a platform surrrounded by trees with birds singing. The evening yoga was held on the beach, with the surf crashing and a nice breeze - very welcome in April with the high temps and humidity. I believe the meals were Ayurvedic ( vegetarian) and very tasty. Each meal began iwith a generous bowl of local seasonal fruits. A highlight was the three Ayurvedic treatments included in the retreat - avalitley womderful! Mr

Dr Patil and his wife have a lovely yoga practice which they share and they both have kind and generous spirits which add to the experience. I highly reccomended this retreat! Another highlight was a trip to a local spice plantation which was very informative and included a lovely buffet lunch. I defiantly felt my yoga practice grow stronger in my four day retreat at Lotus Nature Cure.

"Séjour de 4 jours en tant que débutant"

Le personnel de l'établissement se donne corps et âme pour que ses visiteurs apprécient leur séjour. Le propriétaire en fait plus que ce qui est attendu (par exemple: faire des appels en Inde à des compagnies aériennes, reconduire des gens à l'épicerie ou à la banque, etc.).

Le yoga sur la plage est très bien organisé et la vue est à couper le souffle.

Le propriétaire est très généreux de son temps. Il nous a amené faire une randonnée le matin et le jour de notre arrivée, il visitait une plantation d'épices avec les autres visiteurs.

Si les traitements ou massages ne nous convenaient pas, on nous proposait d'autres options afin de répondre à nos besoins.

"Un sejour regenerescent"

Tout. La qualité des traitements. L attention et la disponibilité de tout le personnel. La diversité des séances de yoga. L espace d hébergement. Les aires communes. Et le nombre restreint de participant.

"Amazing"

I would recommend Lotus Natur Cure to anyone who is looking for a few days off everything. A truly back-to-the-roots experience. Even if you do not want to do yoga everyday, you will want to... Also recommandable to absolute beginners like me

"Amazing 12 days of yoga"

Dr Patils retreat was amazing! It was my first ever yoga retreat and I loved every aspect. He and his wife and team were all very helpful and kind, everything was very clean and the food was incredible. The yoga was at a good level, not too hard or easy. And we could be driven to the beach every day to spend the afternoon if we chose. Yoga on the beach in the evenings as the sunset was a highlight. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone interested.

"Total find......beautiful place, brilliant team"

Dr Patil could not do enough for us, it’s very intimate with not more than 7 or 8 people at any one time. The massages are out of this world and the beach is stunning.

It’s so good 😊

Melitka Krizman

I particularly liked that it is a smaller place and together with other guests, it really felt like we are doing retreat together as a family. Yoga was wonderful. The beach, especially for long walking. Also not many people there which added to the experience as well. The treatments highest standard.

"Highly recommended"

Me and my friends spent unforgettable time in Lotus Nature Cure. We enjoyed everything, treatments and massages were so amazing, relaxing and calming. 2 daily classes of hatha yoga helped us to get in better shape and find inner peace. The food was healthy and delicious, overall place sparkling clean and accommodation very comfortable. One of the highlights was Dr. Patil, his team and their care, we felt like part of the family. Loved view from the balcony, evening talks, time spent on the beach or short trips. Everybody should experience this at least once in a lifetime, you will get much more than what you pay for. We liked it so much that had to return to spend our last days in India at this place. And already planning when coming back :)

AND the massages were AMAZING!! Imagine a 90 minute treatment every day!

"Amazing retreat with great Ayurvedic treatments,great value!"

De most positive of this yoga retreat was that I felt like I was at home, with pure, warm hearted and hospital people accomodating to all my needs in ways that exceeded my expectations. Dr. Patil and his family really made an effort to make you feel as comfortable as possible to make your stay as great as possible for you :) On top of that, the Hatha & Nidra yoga were great and the Ayurvedic treatments were amazing too. I've never had 6 90-minute massages - performed with the greatest care and patience - in 8 days before! If you are looking for great value for money, go to this retreat!

I loved my week at this special place...

I went alone and there were 5 of us and I could not have wished for a better group to be with ..

Dr patil and his staff were welcoming and kind and could not do enough for us.

The food was healthy and delicious and the daily massages and treatments amazing.

I felt stretched relaxed and invigorated after my week here and would definitely recommend it..

Yoga sessions are challenging enough for experienced and explained enough for beginners. Vegetarian food is varied and freshly cooked. Plenty of fresh fruit. Treatments are thorough and personalised. Very peaceful surroundings. Visits to beach and surrounding areas can be arranged.

"A Life Changer "

I booked to go to Lotus Nature Cure as I was advised to start yoga by my chiropractor and I was spending a week in India seeing the sights so decided to extend my stay. Yoga early in the morning and on the beach in the evening watching the sunset. I did find the yoga difficult to begin with but with the guidance of Dr Patil

,after 7 day,s I was able to do a headstand. Not bad at 54 years of age! The accommodation was more than I had expected for the price I paid. Air conditioned, private bathroom, very comfy bed and roomy. The food was excellent, I wanted all the recipes, and so healthy. But the reason I headed this the 'Best thing I have ever done' is that I have had plantar fasciitis in both feet for over two years. Very painful walking distances and when I awoke in the mornings – sometimes quite excruciating. I have had numerous treatments over the past two years, including steroid injection, shockwave therapy, exercises, binding my feet, acupuncture and others. When I arrived I had a consultation with Dr Patil and we discussed my heel pain. He discovered that my calf muscles were extremely knotted and after a week of them being massaged, that is probably putting it in very layman’s terms, they are completely free of pain It is fantastic and I am so pleased I went to this retreat. I have been given a new lease of life and love the yoga.

"My first retreat"

Nothing was too much trouble - I was very well looked after by Dr Patil, his family and all the staff there. I joined in with all the yoga even though it was my first time and just did as much as I could - spurred on by the thought of the lovely treatments, which were excellent. The food was amazing, not too spicy and would really like to have some of the recipes. Dr Patil also took us on a hike to visit a temple and to a Spice Farm.

"Wellbeing in Goa"

Dr Patil was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, he ensured my daughter and I were able to get the most out of our stay with him, his family and his team. The treatments and therapists were excellent. Food was delicious and I have never been a vegan. As a beginner to yoga I noticed such a difference in my flexibility and adaptability to the poses by the end of the week and to watch the sun go down on the beautiful Goan beach was incredible. He took us to the beach every day and we enjoyed a trip to a Spice Plantation and a trek up a mountain (not quite as easy for a woman in her 50s) to spectacular views. Would love to make this a yearly trip.

Patil, the yoga teacher, is a really nice man, he transmit peace and good mood. The massage of Narai are really good and the therapy. All the family makes you feel like at home, Manish is very friendly and helpful. The room is very good, very comfortable. The place is so quiet amd nice, i was in rainy season, so I cant enjoy the beach, but it is an excelent place. The food really good, I've never try so tasty vegan food. Thanks a lot for an unforgetable week

"Excellent Yoga Sessions "

Dr. Patil,is not only very good yoga expert but also very good human being.The way he thought yoga by making things easy and comfortable was recommended.The Staff also provide the same level of comfort during the stay.The food and

everything was just made with so much love and passion. I really learnt the yoga, the ayurvedic treatments and the Veg food. A nice and open wide beach is just 2 kms away from the house and mode of transportation can be walking,by cycle and dropped out by cat. Due to high work life pressure i wanted to take yoga seasion and the way programme is designed will make you leave the place with a calm and peaceful heart. I definitely recommend it - you won't regret your stay there. Preeti

"A wonderful place to take time out for yourself"

A great combination of yoga, fantastic ayurvedic treatments plus time in the afternoons for enjoying the beautiful nearby beaches (Benaulim, Fatrade) or shopping (Margao market, Colva market). Food was great, healty and varied, staff were tremendously friendly and helpful. Felt relaxed and rejuvenated after my weeks stay and an additional highlight was to meet such lovely people also doing the retreat. Would highly recommend

"Unique Immersive Path to Wellness"

One-week back from 7 days at Lotus Nature Cure and I cannot sing its praises highly enough - or wait to return! A group of strangers from all over the world, of varying ages, genders and fitness levels, felt instantly like family. In addition to being great fun, communal meals were healthful, satisfying and delicious. Though I arrived with friends, I would be happy to return unaccompanied, knowing that LNC pulls one into an immediate, sustaining, gentle embrace. Simple rooms were clean and comfortable - hot water, good beds, air conditioning, with lovely jungle views and serenading birds. Group Hatha Yoga classes geared to all levels were conducted skillfully by the doctor, with more advanced and challenging classes taught by his wife. The individually prescribed treatments lasted a luxurious 90-minutes and were the best I’ve ever experienced. Special kudos to the yoga practice at sunset on a nearby, world-class beach, offering clean, warm ocean, gentle waves and endless walks. Beach shack bars offered lounge chairs and umbrellas, free of charge, and very delicious fresh-fruit drinks. I also thoroughly enjoyed the field trips, including shopping, a Hindi prayer service and a full and exciting day at a Spice Farm. I left with a solid foundation for implementing simple, practical life-style changes to maintain and advance my new-found wellness of body and spirit. A most sincere and humble thank you to the doctor, his family & staff.

"Super entspannt und professionell "

Die ruhige Lage im Grünen mit sehr vielen Vogelarten, weg von dem hektischen Treiben. Familiäres Umfeld und Yoga in kleiner Gruppe.

Die Massage Anwendungen waren einfach nur genial und immer mind. 1,5 Stunden lang.

Die Yogastunde war auch eher 1,5 Stunden lang und hatte eine gute Mischung aus Übungen von Atemtechnik, Posen, Dehnübungen und Entspannung. Das Level war angepasst an die Teilnehmer und bot immer auch Herausforderungen, wie etwa den Kopfstand.

Das ayurvedische Essen wurde immer frisch zubereitet und schmeckte mir persönlich sehr gut. Das ganze Team war super freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Da das Center etwa 20 min Fußweg vom Strand entfernt liegt, hat uns Dr. Patil täglich einen shuttleservice angeboten. Daneben bot er auch an uns eine Gewürzplantage zu zeigen oder eine kleine morgendliche Wanderung zu einem Tempel zu machen.

Die Strände in der Umgebung sind eher ruhig und zumindest im November nicht stark frequentiert.

Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen Wald in sehr ruhiger Lage. Dennoch sind einige Läden und ein kleiner Ort zu Fuß erreichbar.

Die Zimmer sind geräumig und haben einen Balkon. Dr. Patil, seine Familie und Mitarbeitenden sind sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend und herzlich. Es war ein toller und entspannender Aufenthalt, den ich sofort wiederholen wurde.

I recommend this yoga retreat 1000% ! The Dr Patil was really nice and always taking care of us, taking us to the beach and for treks during the breaks. The treatments were varied and really professionals. Yoga classes were also varied, with mantras, asanas, meditation and relaxation. The indian ayurvedic meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) were just amazing, there were more delicious the one from the other :) Rooms were also really confortable, with AC, balcony, towels were changed everyday and blankets every two days, room was cleaned every day ! We will come back for sure, we loved it so much and miss it already...

"Herboren"

De kleinschaligheid, het gast zijn bij Dokter Patil en zijn gezin en staf en daarmee een authentieke Yoga Ayurvedische ervaring te hebben, is wat ik erg fijn vond. De persoonlijke aandacht qua yoga en massages. De invulling van het programma, maar ook de ruimte om je eigen gang te gaan. De service die door dokter Patil geleverd werd. Zeer behulpzaam. Hij bracht ons b.v. elke dag naar het strand. Het eten was daarbij geweldig! Na 10 dagen voel ik me als herboren!
