  • Review by Mike & Lee from Saussignac, France

    "I couldn't say enough nice things about this whole experience. Pawan was absolutely the best in organizing and planning the entire stay. There were little touches throughout that made you feel like you were in your home away from home. The excursions were well thought out and executed perfectly. Not only did we feel a connection with Pawan, but we also made new friends while we were there. Please Please Please, if you are considering a yoga trip to India, look no further, this is where you want to be."

    "I had a wonderful week at the Rasa retreat. From the first day to the last. We were personally picked up from the airport in the early morning hours. The welcome was warm and hospitable. I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere without any obligations. Pawan and his team made every possible effort to make our stay a memorable one. I would definitely recommend the Rasa retreat to those who want a beach/yoga India experience!"

    "My husband, two children, and I stayed at the Rasa for three nights, and we felt so pampered during that time. Pawan and his staff anticipated our every need plus some. There were flowers on our table settings and yoga mats, babysitting for our kids while we took yoga classes and got massages, kid-friendly dishes when adults were eating spicy dishes. Yoga teacher was excellent, the food superb, the wine and beer flowing, beaches lovely, and the other guests were interesting and friendly. The Rasa staff really go above and beyond to make sure the guests are happy and entertained."

  • Review by Paige from Menlo Park, California

    "The Rasa Retreat is nestled in a small village a few minutes from Varca beach. It was a true gift to experience the world class hospitality of Pawan and his amazing team. The food was outstanding, with dishes served from a variety of cultures. The accommodations are cozy, yet simple offering all the amenities you need to feel at home. You have a choice how you want to spend your time. Whether it's participating in the planned daily excursions (the trip to a local spice farm and the river boat cruise were my favorite), or just having daily massages and down time for yourself. Yoga on the beach or poolside is offered twice a day along with cooking classes and 6 p.m. happy-hour. The real gift I received from staying at Rasa was the opportunity to focus on myself and have time for real self-reflection. I was able to recognize how much I value my own beliefs and appreciate where my life has taken me. I was reassured of this after getting to spend time with some of the other amazing guests, who are all finding their way in life, just as I am. If you get a chance to visit this amazing refuge then you should!"

    "I found Rasa through BookYogaRetreats.com and went for the 7 day package. I went as a solo female traveler and I couldn't have felt safer. Pawan and his team are all absolutely lovely and do anything and everything to make sure you are happy and having a good time. The attention to detail is unbelievable. The rooms are well furnished, sizeable and very comfortable so I was pleasantly surprised there. The sunrise/sunset yoga was at a pace that everyone could maintain which I thoroughly enjoyed and both the yoga instructors are very friendly. The excursions were great fun, I did the hike and Cabo de Rama both of which I would strongly recommend. We also did a cooking lesson which was good fun and we got all the recipes too. The massages were also good and if you could opt to try different masseuses too. The pool area is also very nice. Then the food....the food is just too good so the detox did NOT happen but for a good reason! But if you were to want to detox they cater for every need you could possible have. Getting your own personalized schedule daily was also a special touch. All in all it was a great choice to go to Rasa and I hope to go back in the future-and would highly recommend to anyone thinking about it. Thank you Pawan and team Rasa!"

    "My son and I spent five days at Rasa Retreat, last week. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to Pawan's one-of-a-kind hospitality and care. On this highly customized trip we were pampered, exercised, entertained, and fed our favorites. We learned new recipes and made new friends. We relaxed and laughed. It was a perfect holiday. Thank you team Rasa and Pawan for making us feel so welcome and at home. We'll definitely be back soon."

    "Excellent holiday! Pawan and the team provided excellent and very personal service. The yoga, massages, excursions and cooking classes were amazing! If you want to try local Indian food this is the place for you! The team does everything possible to make sure you have a good time such as driving you wherever you want to go. Also the accommodation is excellent. Rooms clean and tidy and quiet. I slept very well each night. In this place, you will receive 110% attention, with all meals included. If you aren't the type of person who wants this type of personal attention this is not the place for you. Thank you to the team for making an amazing holiday for me. Single ladies traveling here, rest assured you will be well looked after!"

    "From the moment we arrived at Rasa until our departure, we felt incredibly pampered. Beautiful rooms, daily massages, good yoga classes, attentive staff, interesting excursions, awesome food and a schedule completely adapted to our wishes. Pawan is the most thoughtful host you could hope for, and an all-round superstar. Apart from being an interesting conversation partner, he goes out of his way to make sure you have the best possible holiday, with an incredible eye for detail. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer!"

    "It is a quiet place to relax, meet and be with great people and to have amazing food. We stayed there for 5 nights. Breakfast was included - everyday lovely prepared table with flowers and different dishes to choose (always a local breakfast dish included). Pawan and his team are the most lovely people - just to have a talk, to organize individual journeys, massages and indoor cooking classes. They do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The beach is 10 to 15 minutes walk. The rooms are big, alternatively with terrace and beautiful, common area for meals and just to relax. Thank Rasa team so much for that amazing time!!! Always from the heart."

  • Review by Tarja from Finland

    "I found this while I was looking for an easy place for a traveler in India; somewhere to relax, enjoy the ocean, perhaps some yoga, spa treatments, massages and great food and feeling safe at the same time. This place seemed to suit all my needs. My time in Delhi was a bit challenging, and I had high hopes for my stay in Goa and Rasa. My host Pawan picked me up from the airport and we had a great chat during the drive to Rasa, and I was anxious about seeing where I was going to stay for 12 days to come. As soon as I got to Rasa and my lovely room (room is called Priya, which means love), I fell in love with the place. I totally relaxed and felt like home. Pawan is the leader of his team of great guys, who do their best for the guests every day. He has a great eye for details, décor and service level that all the time goes over all your expectations. His dedication for his guests is unlike I have ever seen before. Not even in luxury hotels in Dubai. And Rasa has only four rooms to rent. My room was cozy, clean, free of noise and I woke up to the gentle rays of the morning sun caressing the room. The walks to the beach at sunset, Yoga in groups as well as my private sessions with yoga teacher, in-house massages, driver services, every meal I had at Rasa, laundry services, excursions; all were of outstanding quality. I stayed at Rasa for 12 relaxing days total, and I could not have been happier during those days. I felt safe, taken care of, pampered, relaxed and so happy. At the same time staying in a homelike environment where I shared some really interesting conversations with other guests staying there. Sharing dinner table and breakfasts with other guests from different parts of the world, it makes the whole event more interactive than in a faceless hotel and its restaurants. Four rooms total, makes every guest a person instead of just a random visitor. I can only give my highest recommendations to Rasa retreat and its team. Pawan as host is a warmhearted, helpful and caring person, he gives this place the truly great atmosphere it has. Rasa Retreat nourished my soul."

  • Review by Chetan Roy from India

    "Everything about this experience was great. The villa itself was well maintained and beautiful, the room was clean and tasteful, the bathroom was spacious with widows for fresh air. The most outstanding feature was the hospitality and service provided by Pawan and his staff. It felt like you were visiting a friend or a family member, not a hotel. I was late getting in, so Pawan got me some food from wherever he was having dinner. Since that was taking time, his staff rustled up a healthy vegetable sandwich to keep me going. My eclectic breakfast requirements were perfectly catered to. Pawan lent me his car for short trips in and around the area. I got some yoga, a massage, good food, and relaxation in a beautiful gated colony. This was the time of demonetization, so he took electronic payments from me and paid cash to whomever I took services from. It was a wonderful trip and my thanks to Pawan for making it easy and comfortable."

  • Review by Annette and Stuart from USA

    "Pawan (the host) shows an attention to detail which I have never seen outside of a world class resort. From taking the effort to stock my favorite soft drink, to the wonderful menu, the presentation of EVERYTHING from mealtime, to seashells, a flower, water bottle and towel on our yoga mat at the beach. We couldn't have asked for better service. His cozy retreat has a homey feel, and Pawan and his staff are warm and friendly. Need a ride to the market for some shopping? No problem! A massage? Definitely! Yoga on the beach? You bet! A glass of wine or a beer? Just ask. Or just vegetate by the pool or ocean if that's your deal. The beach is amazing. The extra excursions we scheduled were great (we're pretty adventurous). India does have some challenges with roads/litter/public bathrooms, but the area and the people of Goa were beautiful and friendly."

  • Review by Michele D from Texas

    "If you are going to Goa, stay here!! We had a great time in Goa due to our awesome host, Pawan and his team. Transfers to/from the airport were a great perk, daily trips to the beach which is about 5 minutes away by car, outstanding food (which they pick menus based on your preferences and dietary needs), various excursions (do all of them!) and yoga classes by the pool or beach. And with the currency issues going on in India, it was so great to have his inclusive package where we could just pay for everything by credit card to him. So, if you're going to Goa, stay at Rasa. You will not regret it. It's the perfect mix of relaxation and activities, plus 5 star hospitality."

  • Review by Anitabaker231 from London, UK

    "As a female travelling alone, all the staff as the Rasa Retreat took excellent care of me. They drove me everywhere I wanted to go including to Sunday Mass and the Francis Xavier Cathedral. I had a staff member participant in yoga with me so that I wasn’t alone. I was escorted by a staff member every time I came off the resort. In fact, I was never alone. The staff are so lovely. Such kind guys. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even rescuing me from a lizard that had sneaked in my en suite when I was just about to take a shower."

    "And yoga on the beach was breath taking. I would recommend definitely Rasa Retreat for all. And your level of yoga is catered for no matter your fitness or level of expertise. I plan on going back soon. Go on, give it go, you won’t regret it!"

  • Review by Debra from Colorado, USA

    "I'm not sure there are any words that can really explain the experience I had a Rasa Retreat other than to say if love and nurturing truly heals you than this is the place to find it."

    "My situation was a bit unique as I had just spent 7rigorous weeks at and Ayurveda treatment center in Kerala. It was amazing but I came out of weeks of treatment and panchkarma exhausted and needing rest and rehab."

    "I had no idea where I could go in India to find a place where they would cook to my prescribed diet, offer yoga to suit my strength and ability level, have the comforts of a nice hotel and also be three minutes from the beach. Rasa met all my expectations and then some with their incredible willingness to individualize my activities, diet and other needs. Pawan is truly an exceptional human and just meeting him and getting to know him a little was worth everything. He has handcrafted a deluxe experience for the visitor that is just unmatchable anywhere in India. His team is gentle, loving, kind and supportive of all your needs and you never feel like you are uncomfortable asking for something. The Ayurveda clinic around the corner offers al la catre treatments so you can pamper yourself if the in house rasa massages aren't numerous enough for you. The beach is truely lovely. They say most of the beachs in Gioa are overrun by tourist but this is not the case at Rasa. I was there in March and there weren't a ton of Tourist and it was nice because in the evening all the locals come to the beach to play and watch the sunset giving it a village atmosphere."

    "Because there are Only three or four people at a time you can join in group outings or go off by yourself so it's perfect for solo travelers. I swam laps in the pool, did yoga and spent the afternoon at the beach. Enjoyed wonderful food and company. I'm definitely going back and also want to check out the new Rasa Retreat in Kashmir where you can go trekking and see all the Beauty of the Himalayas."

    "You can't go wrong putting your confidence in pawan he is now a friend for life. On top of everything he also runs a dog rescue which sterilizes and feeds the beach dogs so that they don't suffer and the beach isn't overrun with dogs. Turely an amazing human I was so fortunate to have found Rasa and to share time at Rasa with him and his team."

  • Review by Livluvliu from Chicago, USA

    "This was the best hospitality I have ever had anywhere!!! The host, Pawan, goes over and beyond any suggestions or requests you have for anything, whether it be food, transportation, living, excursions, etc. His house feels extremely comfortable and homey, unlike a generic hotel or hostel. There is a private pool that is shared within the housing complex that is very relaxing to lay out in and the beaches of Goa are only a few minutes drive away. When you meet Pawan and his staff, you immediately feel like you've know him for years, he is so easy to talk to and open about everything. You can tell Pawan is extremely passionate about Rasa and puts his heart into everything he does for his guests. His staff is extremely curteous to your needs/wants and will cook whatever you want and drive you anywhere you wish. I was so impressed. You will not regret staying here. With such an intimate and secluded stay, you truly are able to forget about the daily workday responsibilites/outside world and focus on your mental, spiritual well-being here. It is a perfect escape from reality. I only wish I could've stayed longer."

  • Review by Maggie from Chicago, Illinois

    "Pawan and his staff surpassed all expectations I had prior to my stay and are the pinnacle example of Indian hospitality. Not only did they fulfill all of the elements of the retreat that were outlined upon booking, but they also went above and beyond by allowing us to completely customize our daily itinerary (including extra yoga sessions and excursions), cooking us both food we requested and meals they thought we would enjoy, teaching us about local customs and traditions (even organizing a Holi celebration for us to take part in), and making every effort to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The planned activities spanned a range of relaxing to adventurous--my favorite of which being a hike to a local Hindu temple followed by a yoga session at the top of the mountain. The yoga instructor was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The accommodations themselves are exactly and described and pictured. The home stay has 5 guest rooms that were very well maintained, clean, and comfortable. Many had private balconies and all had large bathrooms with a generous supply of amenities. The common areas are comfortable and inviting. All in all, Pawan and his team truly made my stay in Goa an unbelievable experience. I'd go back in a heartbeat and have already been recommending to family and friends."

  • Review by Devon from St. Louis, USA

    "From beginning to end, my 7 day retreat in Goa with Pawan and Team Rasa was an incredible experience that I wouldn't trade for anything. I went with a friend for vacation to relax and see the sights and culture of India, and that's exactly what we got. The itinerary was so thoughtfully planned and the service and hospitality was unmatched. Pawan ensured you enjoyed every minute of your trip and was so helpful in planning any other excursions of interest. From morning yoga on the beach, to trips into town, hiking to temples and sunset swims in the ocean, the trip offered a perfect balance of relaxation and adventure. I would go back in a heartbeat. The personal attention you receive at Rasa surpasses any experience you would get at a large resort and allows you to more so submerse yourself in the culture of India. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a blissful experience abroad, the beauty of India is something you certainly don't want to miss. All of my applause and appreciation to Pawan and Team Rasa for creating such a beautiful experience."

    "I stayed at Rasa for a few days in February and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Pawan and his staff were welcoming, warm, and hospitable from the first moment I arrived at the airport. They treated my friend and me like family, going out of their way to make sure I was well-fed, safe, comfortable, and entertained. The property was well-managed and comfortable, with large rooms and bathrooms and the most comfortable beds. The beach is a short bike ride or walk away and we loved it. Pawan even provided us with kayaks and bikes to fully explore the area. The food was also incredible as they fed us meals from all parts of India. Each meal was fresh and not at all heavy or oily like restaurant food. Over all, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone!"

  • Review by Frances M from London, United Kingdom

    "I have just returned from the most amazing trip to Rasa Retreat. I cannot speak highly enough of Pawan and his team. They were exceptionally. There was a fantastic itinerary set out for the week - daily yoga on a beautiful beach (doesn't get much better than Sun Salutation to a setting sun), full body massages every second day, wonderfully interesting and fun excursion, fun cooking lessons and even better food (with different napkin displays every meal), plus lots of down time if you wished. But more than that, the team couldn't do enough for you. Anything that peaked your interest was accommodated with a smile - a trip to the local market, boat cruise, visit to a nearby salon, a request to do yoga twice a day and you couldn't even lay out your own yoga mat - too slow :) Pawan even went to the effort of driving back to take a photograph of a sign for me that I had missed. It’s a “home stay” rather than a fancy retreat - the team is so attentive and accommodating you cannot but love it. Thank you all at Rasa – I will be back."

  • Review by April M from Virginia Beach, Virginia

    "So I needed a vacation and booked a week stay at Rasa Retreat. I didn't even have a chance to look at the website but the reviews looked good and off I went. And I must say it was absolutely amazing!! Pawan went out of his way to show me temples and to organize a hike to a temple that was absolutely beautiful! Anything I could ever have wanted all I had to do was ask and Pawan and his team were more than happy to accommodate. They even included a pulse reading from the Ayurvedic doctor next door, which was very unexpected because it wasn't included! The food was some of the best I've ever had and you don't have to lift a finger or even request seconds because Arjun is standing by, ready to serve you as you need more! I read the most recent bad review and I must say, it says right on the website that it is a home stay and the pictures show that there are other houses around. It's still very quiet and polite and the neighbors are very friendly. The pool was beautiful and the patio was absolutely not dirty. Sure there is a little street noise and the occasional dog bark but it's nothing excessive and didn't bother me or the other girls staying in the home one bit. I will agree thAt the yoga on the beach was very beautiful and relaxing! I must say that it was a wonderful vacation and I was overly spoiled the entire time!"

    ""I have had the pleasure of staying at Rasa Retreat two times now. Whenever I am visiting India I will add it to my schedule. It is not a hotel. It is a home. And Pawan, the owner, and his staff make you feel like family the instant they collect you at the airport. The value for the price is incredible. We had 3 amazing meals each day catered to your desired tastes, while also being able to try new dishes per their recommendations. We had inclusive massages, yoga, tours, kayaking. And not to be forgotten the lovely happy hour and a little Bollywood dancing too, if you feel like it! "

    ""

    "The staff is completely attentive. Want to go shopping? No problem! A little beach picnic? Done! But if you just want quiet time or romantic time, they will leave you alone. The pool is quiet, tucked away on the property. A great place to chill or cool off after a tour. They will even serve you a refreshing drink out there. The rooms are large and luxurious with a fully stocked mini bar, dreamy white bedding, a full ensuite bathroom (including marvelous amenities from Kashmir) and a large private terrace for an after dinner drink or coffee. Plus it is a great way to meet travelers from all over the world. Those who don't like those big hotel chains that don't know customer service. Come as a guest. Leave as family.""

  • Review by Adagarwal from New Delhi, India

    "Goa is a special place. But Pawan and his team at Rasa make it extra special. We chose Rasa because of its proximity to the beach, about 12 minute walk and a 5 minute scooter ride to a nice cozy patch on the Varca beach. However, for the first time we felt that our stay was less about Goa and its beaches and food but more about our experience at Rasa. It's a nice cozy four-bedroom bungalow in a small but beautiful gated community. Excellent food, great bedrooms and a very special host Pawan. He and his team should rename Rasa to extra mile. Because, he and his team go extra mile, everytime to make sure that you have a fabulous experience. I am sure that this just the beginning of a very long association for us with Pawan and his team."

Rasa was quiet, clean, safe well stocked and the service was above and beyond expectations. This all without losing the unique local Goan experience. The local beach was 26km of endless white sands, clear warm water and dolphins with very few of the tourist huts and shacks that crowd some other Goan beaches.The car is available at any time to take you to any of the other popular beaches or hot spots, but for anyone looking to stay in a more relaxed environment this is for you. Everything was available, yoga, sightseeing, pool, quality multi cuisine, home cooked food and outstanding Indian hospitality without being overbearing. Pawan's dedication to making Rasa a comfortable and relaxed place to stay is very apparent. Thanks to Pawan, Coco and team."

  • Review by Raga from London, UK

    "We were in Goa on work and had our main stay at another 5 star property, and then ended our trip by staying for a night at RASA. The contrast was amazing. The service that Pawan and his team gave us at Rasa was unmatched. No 5-star can provide such an experience.There is so much effort put into every minute detail, right from arrival, to the beautiful rooms, the special snacks and fully stocked up mini bar, the amazing food choices, the beach walks, happy hours and more. Just when we thought that we were in heaven, Pawan arranged for a massage for us. To say that massage was the best ever ,would be an understatement.We can't thank Pawan, Coco and his team enough for giving us another amazing experience. I would recommend Rasa to all!"

    "I stayed at Rasa for nine days on my first solo trip to India. Pawan and the team at Rasa made every effort to ensure that my trip was everything I could have wanted and more. Pawan even helped to plan a side to Delhi/Agra to see the Taj Mahal. I joked that Pawan knew my schedule better than I did, but really he did. The house and grounds were always clean and fresh. The food was absolutely top notch. Everything was masterfully executed no matter if it was a morning walk on the beach, yoga, kayaking, or an excursion to an area attraction. The team was available for support night or day and even helped me negotiate prices during my shopping trip. I couldn't have asked for a better trip and would not hesitate visiting again."

    "Rasa was truly "bliss" for my boyfriend and me. It was our first trip to India and Pawan and his team made our stay amazing! The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the food was healthy and incredibly tasty and the company simply made the trip unforgettable. I've been telling all my friends about Rasa."

    "Such a fabulous week at Rasa Retreat! From the gracious host, Pawan, to the excellent staff, Arjun, Shankar, and others - I could not have asked for a better experience. The location of Rasa is ideal, affording a short walk or bicycle to the beach. Either just spend time relaxing and enjoying the wonderful ambiance and food or you can head out for a night on the town. Rasa Retreat is highly recommended."

    "I just returned from an 8 day stay at Rasa Retreat. Everyone at work is commenting on how relaxed I look! Rasa was wonderful and included the right mixture of relaxation by the pool or on the beach, yoga, excursions, Ayuverda (an Ayuverda center is located right next door!), massages, and happy hours. The meals were all delicious, and Pawan catered to my dietary needs. At my request, Pawan even took me to a bookstore and a beauty salon. I can't wait to return with friends next time!"

    "A very sympathetic experience with Pawan, our host who gives his whole energy for his guests. Such a sweet gentleman. In addition, the quality and comfort of the rooms are wonderful. The staff is the image of the host, very kind and very respectful. The food is excellent. The price is not cheap but we had the equivalent quality. We warmly recommend Rasa Retreat to our friends."

    "Rasa Retreat was a lovely hidden find in Varca which makes you feel welcomed almost immediately and is a refreshing change from the impersonal feel of a hotel. The concept of Rasa Retreat is healthy living. Rasa offers a variety of activities and programs like yoga, massages and healthy cooking techniques."
