"I just came back from a one-week yoga/meditation/detox retreat at Lotus Nature Cure, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I was a total beginner and Dr. Patil was so patient, kind and really helpful. People attend retreats for all sort of reasons and Dr. Patil customized the services and treatments to answer everyone's needs and expectations. He went above and beyond to make us feel great, and we actually all felt home, away from home. If you're still hesitating; then don't and sign up! :-)"

"I had a rejuvenating 3 days at Lotus Nature Cure. It is a perfect place to be if you're looking to just relax, detoxify and do some yoga."
"The centre is located not too far from the airport yet is away from the busy city life in a secluded and quite area. The day starts with morning yoga followed by breakfast followed by scheduled Ayurvedic massage sessions then lunch then evening relaxing yoga on the beach until sunset and ending the day with light dinner. There is enough time to relax yet ensuring you do not get bored or feel home sick."
"Dr. Patil is a wonderful person and is doing an excellent job at running the retreat. After I left, the only regret was that I should have come for a longer duration than just 3 days! "

"I spent the week between December 20th to December 26th, 2016 with great family of Dr Patil. I enjoyed a lot morning yoga in the forest, yoga nidra on the beach during sunset. Healthy and delicious food, spiritual talks and everyday massages, that refresh your body and soul. Thanks a lot to Fatima for her golden, strong and tender hands. Smile of little Naksh made a lot of love and sun in the house. Dr Patil was so attentive to his guests. I would recommend this place for people who are looking for peace, harmony and nature cure. Energy of this family renovates you with care and love. I am so happy to have been a guest at Lotus Nature Cure."

"We had a great stay at Lotus Nature. We highly recommend Lotus Nature Retreat. Dr Patil is kind and thoughtful - making sure we were doing yoga at a suitable level and ensuring we were getting very healthy food. The center is small and personalized, so even though we are relative beginners, we felt comfortable with the yoga and learned a lot. "

"A 7-day personalized yoga retreat at Lotus Nature Cure is probably the best gift one can give to themselves. You are guaranteed to leave this place with a super relaxed mind and a nourished body (inside and out). After this experience you will be one happy soul! The service is absolutely faultless! You are so well looked after from the minute you arrive. Dr Patil and his staff are very accommodating to give you the personalized experience. Dr Patil's hospitality is second to none, he goes above and beyond and is always willing to help. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable and the room sizes are quite large with en-suite bathrooms. The home-cooked meals and the fresh fruits are delicious, you can taste the freshness of the ingredients that go in to the meals and it leaves you feeling satisfied. With these meals you get your healthy balance of nutrients and most importantly helps your system work like clock work! The 2 sessions of yoga per day are fantastic! The morning session at sunrise is active and the sequence leaves you feeling awake and energized. The evening sessions take place at sunset on the beach and focus on breathing techniques and meditation. Dr Patil is extremely knowledgeable about the subject and explains the benefits of the postures and the breathing techniques very well. The guided meditation is also a great experience. The massages I received here were probably the best massages I have ever had! My masseuse Fatima was amazing. I am an office worker so I spend a lot of time in front of the computer so this was just what I needed and it worked like magic! Always felt so good after a massage and treatment session. This was my first yoga retreat and I absolutely loved it! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to nourish their mind, body and soul. It certainly reached beyond my expectations!"

"Lotus Nature Cure is a perfect place for those who want to take care of his body and soul and just relax for a while."
"The morning starts with yoga in the early morning sun, in the backyard surrounded by greenery and palm tree. In the background, I hear the sound of a rooster and dogs barking. I can also hear children playing. It is beautiful and vivid which make me feel a part of nature. After 90 minutes yoga and meditation, the breakfast is waiting for me. After that, it´s time for the massage, which is fantastic and makes me feel very relaxed and refreshed. After lunch, Dr. Patil drive those who want to the beach (5 minutes) where we also have our evening yoga to sunset and the waves. Back home awaiting a fruit plate and the. The day ends with supper. All the food are ayurvedic, very good and I feel that it will keep me healthy."
"It´s really nice to stay in Dr. Patils house together with his family, it makes me feel like a part of the Indian family-life. The family is extremely friendly and Dr. Patil is moreover willing to drive you if you want to see something in the neighborhood. I can really recommend Lotus Nature Cure and I am happy that I booked two weeks in this place and my dream is coming back and bring friends with me. "

"This retreat is fantastic value. Really good massages and incredible food is provided for 3 meals a day. I found the yoga quite traditional and a little repetitive but it was lovely to do classes on the beach at sunset. Rooms were clean and staff very friendly. Ask for a cooking lesson !"

"I wanted to take my first solo yoga retreat and desired to find a place that will be safe and give me an experience that would encourage me to take more such trips. Lotus Nature Cure seemed to be the best place to meet my requirements for the 4 day and 3 nights retreat. I found Lotus Nature Cure in South Goa, a 30 minute drive from Goa Airport. The place, so calm and serene, steeped in nature, itself is a healing experience. Dr. Patil family’s hospitality is beyond words, his ever smiling family make sure that every minute is spent without any discomfort. The daily yoga sessions and Ayurveda massages were excellent and probably among the best one can experience in India. I also learned the different meditation techniques from Dr. Patil. The Satwic food prepared by Mrs. Patil was very tasty and helps in detoxification. My visit was during off season and not a single minute I felt lonely or bored, the beach being quite near, one can cycle to the beach and relax there. Lotus Yoga Retreat provided food for the Body, Mind and Soul and the memories of the place still keeps flashing. I would highly recommend Lotus Nature Cure for anyone looking for a perfect yoga and Ayurveda retreat in India. I absolutely loved it. I would give 11/10 :)"
"I was looking for a place to go to get far away from everyday stress and demands, and needed physical healing for my body. After coming across Lotus Nature Cure online and the description of their program, even though getting to India from the USA on short notice would not be easy, I decided that I needed to at least try. I did get there and the experience was even better than I had hoped for. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Patil and his program that includes sharing meals with his family in a very serene setting. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to find serenity, stress relief, and physical healing"

"When I looked into visiting Goa for this retreat, I was very nervous and didn't know what to expect. When I got there, I immediately got into the groove and enjoyed every minute of it. The days are filled and focused on meditation and health. I came during the monsoon (off-season) but still never felt bored, and enjoyed my free time reading a book. I came in search of a solution for my eczema, which flared up, and leaving I had a fresh renewed hope that with yoga and healthy eating my skin can improve. I have returned home a couple days ago, and I am still eating healthy and continuing to do yoga. I only went for four days but I feel as though that was enough time to set me on a path of healthy habits! Dr. Patel works very hard to run this business, and I also highly recommend his acupuncturist, Dr. Rita Marita Dsouza e Vaz, who was amazing and provided advice that was enormously helpful. If you are planning a trip to India, give this place a try you won't regret it!"

"The 4 day 3 night yoga retreat at Lotus Nature Cure in Goa was amazing. Dr. Patil and Mrs. Patil were the most accommodating, welcoming and graceful hosts that I could imagine. The ride from the airport and to the train station was arranged without extra cost. Dr. Patil helped me book a train ticket to Kochi before I arrived. The house was beautiful and spotless. The room was comfortable and I loved sitting outside the balcony to read and relax. The yoga classes were taught by both Dr. and Mrs. Patil, with slightly different styles. The daily massages (yes, daily!) were heavenly. In our down time, Dr. Patil arranged for outtings to the beach, to town and to the spice plantation. Mrs. Patil's home cooking was delicious. I had such a relaxing and rejuvenating experience here. I learned so much about ayurvedic medicine and treatments. Highly recommended! I will come back again!"

"I cannot recommend Lotus Nature Cure enough! From start to finish the trip was brilliant. It could not have been more perfect. Dr. Patil, and his lovely wife and children were so welcoming friendly, very kind, humble and intelligent people. The whole house was pristine, rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless. And the food was exceptional! Amazing Indian food! I could have not have asked for a better week. The two daily yoga sessions were very enjoyable- split between Dr. Patil and his wife and a mix of both Ashtanga and Hatha yoga. And the daily Ayurvedic treatments were amazing, and exceeded any expectations I had. Plenty of things to do in the area with lovely beaches and day trips. But also an excellent place to just relax and chill out. Dr. Patil went out of his way to ensure I had the best possible trip- between dropping me off and collecting me from places, organizing trips and taking me to a local ceremony. I can't thank him enough. In terms of quality, price and overall experience 10/10 all the way! A brilliant week! You will not regret staying here!"

"My trip with Lotus Nature Cure was fantastic. Dr. Patil is one of the most compassionate people in the world. His treatments are top notch and his yoga lessons are not only relaxing but educational. He even recommended a book, Living with Himalayan Masters, for me to further my knowledge in my yoga and meditation practice. The rooms are fabulous!!! They are cleaned everyday. There is relaxing music that plays in your room and in the treatment rooms. His wife cooks all the meals and let me tell you it is some of the best food in India. I cannot even put into words the amazing experience Lotus Nature Cure is. You have to experience it for yourself. Goa also adds to the beauty of this experience. The area was very safe and many smiles and "hello's" were had every time I went for a walk which was 2-3 times a day during our free time. I strongly recommend some sort of bug repellent as some yoga sessions are in open air (which I wouldn't give up in the world) but during the rainy season mosquito's are quite annoying. Iragouda Patil's family, home and entire experience is something I look very much forward to experiencing again with friends in the VERY near future. I highly recommend this to any traveler needing some solitude or a group of friends wanting to experience a life changing moment. I took so many beautiful photographs. It seems everywhere you turn is the perfect picture, even in the rain."

"I absolutely loved staying at the Lotus Nature Cure and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking to improve their everyday lives with yoga and meditation. "
"Dr Patil and his wife go above and beyond to ensure your stay is comfortable and happy during your stay. Set in a stunning location, a 15-minute walk to the closest beach, so quiet and full of nature, spacious rooms with en-suite and toiletries, locally sourced food that is unforgettable and massages that are second to none!"

"I was looking for a place to relax and to do yoga on the beach. This seemed to be the perfect ‘ambiance’ with warm and welcoming people around me! Thank you for the magical experience. It was the perfect relaxation in the perfect place; particular attention was paid to wellbeing and the human body through yoga, retreats and deliciously nutritious and healthy ayurvedic food. Often discovering new kinds of treatments; intense and satisfying. I felt liberated, loosened and released. I am full of energy! This is certainly worth repeating! I give it a 10 out of 10!"

"De retour d'un séjour au lotus nature cure de Goa plus que merveilleux.. Je tenais à remercier toute l'équipe et la famille du Dr Patil pour leur gentillesse et leur professionnalisme. La prise en charge fut plus que magique..!! Je ne pourrais jamais oublier tous les bénéfices apportés. J'ai déjà hâte d'y retourner !!"
"J'ai finalement réussi à passer quelques jours au Lotus Nature Cure et tiens à vous apporter mon avis sur ce lieu d'un rapport qualité/prix exceptionnel. Maison au milieu de la nature au calme, le lieu est bien entretenu aussi bien a l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur. Chambre agréable avec ventilo + A/C et grande salle de douche et balcon. "
"Repas végétariens 100% indiens et délicieux, (ne pas attendre son café au lait + tartines le matin) Et bon massages ayurvediques pour repartir en pleine forme (et pour moi quelques kilos en moins) ! "
"Et n'oublions pas les séances de yoga données pas le Doc en personne le matin sur le shala au milieu des cocotiers et le soir sur la plage jusqu'au soleil couchant! "
"Les points négatifs sont difficiles à trouver , peut-être la distance de la plage, 20 minutes à pied, mais le transport proposé par la maison pour y aller dans l'après-midi compense largement ce fait. "
"Aussi manque-t-il encore un lieu de retrouvailles pour les personnes séjournant là-bas mais il semble que ceci soit prévu dans un futur proche. Je n'ai qu'une envie, y retourner bientôt ! "
