Grainne Rose

from India, August 2018

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.

"Hidden champion for relaxing yoga & ayurveda treatments"

I liked the nice atmosphere within a a small group and Iragoudas family. They drove me everyday to the beach, which is around 4km away. It was great, to have 3 meals a days, which I'm used to. The ayurvedic massage made my body feel great again. The beach is not croweded, they have chairs and umbrellas.

"Perfect, relaxing stay."

Wonderfully peaceful setting. Dr Patil and his family go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need, providing transportation to the beach every day and sightseeing opportunities. Delicious food and incredible massages. Yoga was great for beginners with everything well explained and demonstrated.

Massages were good.

"Hidden Gem in Goa"

Dr. Patel is so passionate about what he does. The food was fantastic, the massages were incredible, and yoga was great. He uses his own house for the retreat and it's all so convenient. It was a very relaxing but challenging (in a good way) four days. Dr. Patel drove us himself to do a few things during the afternoons. He was always willing to answer any questions or help us with anything. Lotus is just a great place to be and I would highly recommend it to friends and family.

Keala Morrell

"Excellent value!!"

Dr. Patil and his team are very kind, friendly, and talented. The massages were incredible, and the yoga was the perfect balance of challenging and do-able. The accommodation was in a basic homestay style in beautiful, peaceful nature.

Laura Thompson

"Extremely relaxing break."

Beautiful rooms in a perfect location, quiet and 'away from it all'.

The whole family and staff there were friendly and welcoming and very professional.

Food was delicious and massage treatments were of a high standard.

The whole retreat was extremely relaxing and enjoyable.

"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.

"Amazing place for yoga and a retirement"

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.

"A warm and heartful experience"

Our stay at Lotus Nature Cure was such a nice experience. Everything was just made with so much love and passion. We really enjoyed the yoga, the treatments and the food which is ayurvedic. Also the place is very close to a nice and open wide beach. Both me and my boyfriend left the place after a week with a calm and peaceful heart. Patila and his family makes sure you will have the best stay! We can definitely recommend it - you won't regret your stay there. Kind regards Alan & Anne

"A wonderful rejuvenating experience"

I enjoyed every moment of my staying at the Lotus Nature retreat. I was surrounded by very open, smiling and wholehearted people. The yoga classes were so well balanced with the treatments, visits and the leisure activities that at the end of the day you were enjoying a wonderful and peaceful tiredness. Dr Patil and his wife are very good and patient yoga instructors. I felt myself progressing with my yoga postures every day.

I will definitely come back!

This is a place to learn the yoga moves as well as the principals the time goes so fast and the different therapies make this so different to other retreats

Robyn Irons

from New Zealand, December 2017

"A two week boost towards better health. "

Yoga classes were held in the cool of early morning and again in the early evening so that it wasn't too hot. We usually went to the beach for sunset yoga, which was just beautiful. Dr Patil, his family and staff were warm and welcoming and very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and not too heavy. My room, ensuite and balcony were very nice, and very comfortable. Great chillout space upstairs for the guests to relax or for yoga during wet weather. Good WiFi.

The massages and treatments were awesome! I'll definitely return to Lotus Nature Cure in the future.

"A Hidden Little Gem "

Truly one of the most incredible experiences ever! Wow... I have only positive things to say about this beautiful little gem hidden in Orlim, Goa.

From the place it’s self, to the yoga, treatments, food, excursions and the generosity from all the staff is 5 gold stars from me! I will be back next year, that I do know. I was extremely sad to leave, I felt healthier, I’d lost weight and most importantly I felt totally relaxed. Dr Patil you and your family, staff are truly wonderful.

Izabela Milewska

"A perfect week of detox, relax and pleasure!"

Dr. Patil is a wonderful person! The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Yoga at the beach was a dream come true and the massages were absolutely amazing. Far more than I initially thought this visit will be, and beyond expectations as to the value for money, the effects on overall well-being and the results on weight, shape and wellness.

Morten Svendsen

from Denmark, October 2017

"Very good expirience"

Doctor Patil is very helpful and have a great philosophy of life. The level of yoga was so I could follow and in just one week I felt great improvement.


from Ireland, October 2017

"Excellent gem"

Dr. Patil and his team where outstanding. Yoga at 6.30am and 5.30pm both one hour and half sessions where soothing and rejuvenating. Also the massages where excellent. Dr. Patil was very attentive, its a true gem. Bicycles are available to use to cycle to village near by where supermarket, chemist etc. All meals where so fresh and local sourced and where cooked with love. There is a beach near by which is beautiful and Dr. Patil dropped us there. I travelled from Ireland. All I can say is Dr. Patil is brilliant and his family are so welcoming and nothing is any trouble. I could not recommend it highly enough.

"A perfect place to unwind, relax and practice yoga "

I had a very relaxing week at the Lotus Nature Cure retreat thanks to the warm and hospitality of Dr. Patil, his staff and family. The best part of the retreat was definitely the 90 massage everyday. The yoga was great and the ayurveda food made me feel super healthy by the end my one week stay there. We also did yoga on the beach which was very nice. Overall, I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet retreat to relax and unwind.

"Exceptional 7 days @ Lotus Nature Cure"

From the moment of pick-up @ airport @ 4am (organised efficiently by Dr. Patil) to my departure 7 days later it was a wonderful experience. My first time doing Yoga so I had no idea to expect. The atmosphere was welcoming, accommodation was basic but everything you needed - cleaned daily with sheets & towels changed - extra if needed. Meals were amazing and I looked forward to them - best vegetarian I have had and if food did not suit all you had to do was speak to Dr. Patil (I did not need this!!). Yoga classes were excellent and I looked forward to them each day - particularly Yoga on the beach when it was not raining. Dr. Patil did not push us beyond our capabilities although you were given encouraged to try different asanas if you could and I found that I because more flexible as the days went by. The massages were amazing - one each day which left me feeling amazing (best massages I have had). An outside Ayurvedic practitioner came and went through some history of Ayurveda and we got a constitution questionnaire to complete to see own Ayurvedic constitution which was extremely useful. Dr. Patil following up on this by taking us through a daily Ayurvedic routine...which we could adopt easily into our daily/weekly routines - I found this extremely beneficial. Dr. Patil took us to the Spice Plantation and also to a Temple and also to the market in Margao. He took us to the beach & ATM's trips! and anywhere we wanted to go. Beach @ Fatrade was beautiful for walks, & Yoga.

Me and my friend we spend a week there and we both had an amazing time! Dr. Patil and his family made us feel special and helped us a lot. The yoga classes, the treatment and the food was amazing! We learnt a lots of new stuff about yoga, health treatment as well as about ourselves! Doctor Patil took us to Spice Farm, Hindu Temple and also to the beaches or town or basically wherever we wanted to go in our free time! This is definitely a place to visit!

"Highly recommend peaceful break "

I spent a week at Lotus Nature Cure in September and had the most relaxing time. Yoga as the sun rose, nutritious vegetarian meals, brilliant massages and free time to wander amongst the palm-lined roads of Goa. Dr Patil and his wife are brilliant yoga teachers, taking the time to teach it properly and help you personally. The spiritual side is really great to learn about too.

"Perfectly relaxing week"

I stayed in this retreat for one full week in the beginning of June. They took very well care of me. The yoga was very good, at the end of the week I noticed I had become more flexible. In the evenings we could often practise the yoga on the beach, which was very nice. The massages were the best I have ever had! Every day they provided a different massage, depending on your request and/or injuries. The location and house itself were good and easy to find. Nearby the beach so everyday I went to spend some time at the beach. The food was excellent and around the house was jungle which gave a very relaxing ambiance. Thank you so much dr. Patil and all the staff!

"Lotus nature cure review "

Dr Patel and his staff were so welcoming from the second I arrived. Despite it raining every day and being completely out of season, I had the best time! The room was really clean, and cleaners came by every day. The yoga was great. I have only done yoga a couple of times so dr Patel adapted well to my level! The food was amazing, the surroundings are beautiful and the massages were incredible! Dr Patel really went out of his way dropping us into town during the day and having washing done for me. I was so sad to leave and I will deffinitely go back there and also recommend to friends and family. Overall amazing experience all round :-)

"Great place with great people!"

If you are looking to run away from a hectic life, this is the right place. Dr. Patil and his staff are so kind and hospitable. Food was simple and very tasty. Yoga poses are quite simple, but the meditation followed after is great. I couldn't expect my week to be any better. Will highly recommend to all my friends!

We spent seven days at lotus nature cure with Dr Patil and his lovely family. The entire program had us feeling both rejuvenated and energized. This started with yoga twice a day, with the evening session held at the beach. The food was fantastic and held more meaning behind it which Dr Patil explained to us one night. The treatments included were very relaxing and varied. They helped us iron out any tired + tight muscles. Dr Patil and his family were very accommodating. He helped with transport and any other queries we had. Could not recommend more highly a stay here. Enjoy!
