Living room, kitchen, and dining area

The welcome area is a warm living room with two distinct sitting areas, a common television area separated from the comfortable couches, which are perfect for curling up while reading a book or relaxing as a first stop post an outing. The dining room, which seats up to 10 guests, and a fully stocked and staffed kitchen are also located on this level.

Lower-level guest rooms

Two guest rooms, Shanti (Peace) and Khushi (Joy), flank either side of the living room area. These rooms can also be accessed from the rear of the house as a convenience for guests to rinse off in separate outdoor showers before discretely entering their rooms.

Second-floor guest rooms and business center or lounge

On the second level are two additional spacious guest rooms, Priya (Love) and Asha (Hope), each with their own private terraces. This level also houses the business center or lounge for the convenience of guests. The entire house is Wi-Fi enabled.

Room amenities and accessories

Each tastefully-decorated room has air conditioning, personal mini refrigerator, electric kettle, supplies for tea and coffee, luggage rack, closet, and cupboard, as well as an iron with board. The attached private baths come with shower amenities, towels, hair dryer, and other complimentary extras.

Daily yoga

There will be yoga classes held twice every day. An experienced yoga instructor will lead simple, basic-to-intermediate yoga sessions on the beach and on the premises for you to learn and practice. Morning classes will be at 7:00 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. and evening classes will be from 5:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. Please note that each class will be 90 minutes long. There will be approximately 14 classes in all.

Cooking lessons

There will be a cooking class, which can be scheduled anytime during the retreat, with prior 24 hours' notice. Learn to prepare wholesome, nourishing meals from a variety of cuisines. The cooking lessons teach quick, easy, yet soulful recipes for your family and you to enjoy.

Happy hours

Sprinkled through your stay are happy hours with beverages (beer, wine, or soft drinks) and appetizers. A special sunset happy hour on the beach will allow you to enjoy beverages as you unwind from the day and watch the sun on its daily descend beyond the horizon.

Kayaking and bicycling

Kayaks and bicycles are readily available for you to use as you incorporate a little active lifestyle into your vacation schedule. Discover the ocean on the kayak or bicycle your way as you explore the nearby villages, beaches, markets, and more!

Massages

Each participant gets to enjoy two massage sessions at Casa Antiqua, South Goa's premier Ayurveda center, scheduled at a mutually convenient time.

On the third day of the retreat, there will be a guided sightseeing tour of Sahakari Spice Farm. Sahakari Spice Farm is situated amid lush green surroundings at Curti. The taluka of Ponda, in which it is located, is extremely popular among tourists for its rich cultural heritage and magnificently designed places of worship. This spice farm adds to the variety of tourist destinations that Ponda has to boast of.

A half day trip to Sahakari Farms will allow you to experience life on a spice plantation as you enjoy the lush surroundings, flowing river, and wildlife. Lunch is included at the plantation. On the fifth day, you will enjoy another sightseeing tour of Cabo de Rama Fort and a beach picnic.

This retreat will be held at Rasa Retreat in South Goa, India. Rasa Retreat is a distinctive, all-inclusive four-bedroom refuge offering a structured holiday in the comforts of a vacation home.

Nestled in the tranquility of Varca, South Goa, with its many charming elements, it allows visitors to create a space for oneself along with the discretion to engage in aspects of an active lifestyle holiday.

Stays at the Rasa Retreat are designed for guests with discerning tastes who seek the frills of an opulent hotel with an affordable, all-inclusive holiday experience.

Testimonials

  • Beoordeling van Owen and Philip uit Verenigde Staten

    "We had just finished an epic trip around India and our last dinner was on the roof terrace of Mister and Art House. Sanjay and George made us feel most welcome as well as others they had invited so we could share and understand gay life in Delhi. Moreover, George had designed the yummiest meals for us. Sanjay whisked me off to view the rooms and all the delicious art displayed and it was hard not to take out the credit card! Thank you so much boys. It is a well-presented and warm place to be."

    "I had been staying and working in India for an extended period of time and needed "a break". One would not ordinarily think going to Delhi would be the place for that, but it was just what I needed. Raj was waiting for me at the airport and escorted me to the hotel. The hotel is situated in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood in the city and is truly a place where one can relax in complete comfort. The staff is incredible and accommodated every need I had. During my time Sanjay and Raj also arranged tours of the city and of Agra. Both came off without even one snag. Raj also showed me local places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. In short, the hotel and accommodations could not have been better in any way. It will go down as one of my fondest memories of India."

  • Beoordeling van Norm Borque uit Canada

    "After our first visit to India in 2013, we decided that we had to go back. In 2016 we spent February March and April driving through the south (Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu) then moved to the north east to Sikkim and West Bengal to end in the north west states of Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. After 3 months on the road we needed a quiet place where we could relax and be worry free for a week. I search the internet and found the Mister and Art House, a gay B&B type of establishment. It is located in the ‘posh’ Greater Kailask 2 enclave which is just a short tok tok ride ( 60 rupees) to the air conditioned subway network. GK2 enclave is a new development and there are not many restaurants around however, we found a take out place with outdoor tables called Relax Xpress just at the exit of the enclave. The guy in charge, Gagan, is a very handsome Indian who spent 7 years in Scotland so no need to tell you how funny it was to have an Indian with a Scottish accent. He was a lot of fun and is very interesting to talk with. "

    ""

    "Now back to the Mister and Art House. The place was somewhat difficult to find du to the strange address system in Delhi. The place has no outdoor signs so it is very discreet. We were greeted by beautiful Amar who is the person in charge of the daily operation of the establishment. When we arrived, our room was super hot (over 45’C) and it took a couple of days to bring it down to a comfortable temperature. Unfortunately, as soon as we would go out, the A/C would be turned off which I objected to. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with rustic and antique furniture and many of the comforts of a regular spacious hotel room (minibar, a secure drawer for valuables and in some rooms a safe, capacious armoires). The morning breakfast prepared by Amar was most subsistent and offering a choice of western breakfast with fresh fruit, hot or cold cereals, eggs, toasts, juices coffee or tea but also plenty of local food and soups (yes soup for breakfast) which were just divine."

    "The place is kept spotless and you feel really pampered. The next day we met Raj who is the activity planner. One of the options which was offered to us was an Escort, dinner at a posh restaurant and then an evening of dance at a clandestine gay party. Of course the fee $200+ does not include dinner for you and your escort (an additional $200 nor does it include the entrance to the party. I was a bit turned off by the escort thing so I did not take advantage of the offer. Raj was however very sweet and he accompanied me to a party for a charge of course."

    ""

    "Another minor thing that annoyed me was that unlike other hotels in India, The Mister and Art House does not provide complimentary water bottles, it is not about the 70 rupees but it is a matter of principle. It makes the place feel a bit cheap."

    ""

    "The one point that I was very pleased with is that we could have guests coming over to our room which is very important when you are in a country where most people live with their parents so they do not have a place to ‘entertain’. This gave me the ability to meet extraordinary people. "

    ""

    "The Mister and Art House allowed us to have our rest and relaxation and provided us with an extraordinary opportunity to meet people outside of the touristic areas. I am planning another trip to India and this time I will spend more time in Delhi and for sure stay at the Mister and Art House. I would recommend it to my friends and to any gay person who wants to explore the gay life in Delhi.."

    "Very nice house. Very friendly staff and excellent meals (I had a Friday evening dinner and weekend breakfasts - all catered to me). The room and bath were very comfortable - just as any 4-5 star hotel. A few things could have made it better - I never got to meet any of the other boarders over breakfast, and while there was a party going on Saturday night after hours, I was not invited. Either way, I had a very nice time. The massage was fantastic as was the chef. Highly recommended."

    "I arrived just prior to Holi, Raj and Sanjay arranged a great Holi celebration on the terrace, with a beautiful international crowd. So much fun. "

    ""

    "The guest house is perfect, so mellow and peaceful, perfect hosts, perfect guests. Wonderful Indian cuisine, when I ate in. Perfect location, I could run a 10k in the Jahanpanah city forest, less than a 1/4 of a mile away. "

    "The city came alive with my Indjapink guides, exploring everything I wanted to see in and around New Delhi."

    "Raj, Sanjay, Krishna, the whole group, made me feel comfortable and at home. I would recommend the guest house to any and all. I will go back."

  • Beoordeling van Gabey Fisher uit Verenigde Staten

    "I chose the Mister and Art house because I wanted to feel comfortable and they sure made that a reality. Raj picked me up from the airport as requested and was kind enough to stop at an ATM before we got there. He also was my escort for my Saturday evening tour of the Delhi night life and he did an excellent job. I had an amazing time at dinner and out at the club dancing. Amar did a great job taking care of my needs at the house, providing a lovely breakfast, and being helpful when I needed him. Sanjay was friendly as well and invited me to the rooftop for a fun gathering he set up. I enjoyed talking with and meeting the people he had over. My room was clean, spacious, and the bed was comfortable. Be sure to turn on the water heater for hot water though! I will definitely stay at the Mister and Art house again when I return to Delhi. Highly recommended. Many thanks to all of the staff for their friendly service and for making my time in Delhi enjoyable."

    "Better than an international hotel with no character, we stayed at the Mister & Art House as part of a tour organised by IndjaPink, the gay travel agent for India. Great guest house, well located, nice rooms, friendly and efficient service."

  • Beoordeling van David C.

    "My friend and I stayed at Master & Art House while in Delhi, prior to and after our road trip through Rajasthan last month that was organised by Indjapink, who run the House. We could not have been more pleased. The intimacy of the space coupled with the upscale furnishings were only surpassed by the extraordinary meals. Our breakfasts on the terrace were particularly remarkable, featuring multiple options plus local delicacies that we found to be delicious. Far preferable to a hotel, this B&B offers a truly relaxing and unique accommodation with all the modern conveniences we might expect from home (but not necessarily in India)."

  • Beoordeling van Stephen P uit Verenigde Staten

    "This is the first gay identified boutique guest house in Delhi (opened at this location Aug., 2015) and is a very enjoyable, homelike place to base your visit to Delhi. It is located in Greater Kailash II, which is not terribly far from Indira Gandhi International Airport. It is about a ten minute ride via rickshaw (Rs 60-80) to the nearest Metro Stop (Hauz Khas) although Nehru Place is also not far. Access to the Metro really makes almost the whole Delhi Metro area available."

    ""

    "There are four bedrooms beautifully decorated with rustic and antique furniture and many of the comforts of a regular hotel room (minibar, a secure drawer for valuables and in some rooms a safe, capacious armoires). There are beautiful art pieces, most for sale, including quite a lot of homoerotic art."

    ""

    "Breakfast was generally good with porridge, fruits, toast, eggs juice an coffee, and, on a good day, parathas. It was very enjoyable to sit around the breakfast table with other guests, getting to know each other and trading notes on adventures in this vast and multi-layered city. There is a kitchen for making breakfast but no restaurant as such. They have an arrangement with a local restaurant to have food delivered if you like and on our last night we took advantage of it. (Rs 1500 for 3 of us.) The food was very nicely done Mughlai and Punjabi and just right for preparing to fly."

    ""

    "One drawback is that Greater Kailash does not have a lot of good restaurants. In Block M, a 10-15 minute walk from the guesthouse there are two pretty good looking Italian restaurants, one specializing in cooking from Emilia Romanga, and Yeti, an excellent trans-Himalayan restaurant (Nepali, Tibetan and Bhutanese) where we ate (and enjoyed) twice. (Reviewed elsewhere in TripAdvisor and highly recommended.) There are more restaurants in Hauz Khas 15-20 minutes by rickshaw."

    ""

    "The staff is friendly and knowledgable and also operate a travel company that can arrange sightseeing trips of almost any kind in Delhi or elsewhere. Every once in a while they arrange parties with drinks and food with their gay friends on the rooftop."

    ""

    "The room I occupied (like most places in India) had a separate water heater (called a geyser--pronounced "geezer") and you needed to make sure to turn it on. The geysers could have been larger as they yielded up just enough hot water to get through soaping up and washing off before the water began to run cold."

    ""

    "In difficult situations, the staff were helpful but tended to respond to complaints a little defensively. It was a minor issues and will undoubtedly get better as they gain experience. The tariff per night for us was Rs4950 with some additional taxes. An airport pick up or drop off is a reasonable Rs1750. There is also an in-room massage available which we did not try."
