Rasa Retreat is a distinctive, all-inclusive four-bedroom refuge offering a structured holiday in the comforts of a vacation home.

Living room, kitchen, and dining

The welcome area is a warm living room with two distinct sitting areas - common television area separated from the comfortable couches, which are perfect to curl 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, 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 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/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/cupboard, and iron with board. The attached private baths come with shower amenities, towels, hair dryer, and other complimentary extras.

Rasa Retreats week-long stay allows you to get entrenched in a healthy, easy-to-internalize lifestyle while enjoying your relaxing vacation in beautiful South Goa. For your daily yoga classes, their experienced yoga instructors will lead simple, basic-to-intermediate yoga sessions on the beach and on the premises for you to learn and practice.

Fun activities and excursions are also offered to give you the opportunity to truly discover the hidden charms of Goas South while you nourish your mind, body and spirit.

Retreat participants usually come as individuals or as couples, seeking something remarkably different than the usual Goa holiday; some also arrive in groups - be it families with children to couples to a band of friends.

By request, Rasa Retreat may customize packages for special occasions such as anniversary celebrations, milestone birthdays, family reunions, and corporate retreats. This place will provide you the opportunity to create a memorable experience for you and your family and help you attain your souls desire.
