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.

  • 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."

  • Review by Amar S from San Francisco, USA

    "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!"

  • Review by Kathleen from Tamarindo, Costa Rica

    ""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."

They were at our service at the drop of a hat! Yoga, walks on the beach, massages, smashing happy hours,and the food..oh dear,the less said the better! Arjun the chef was just the man to give you jaw dropping delicacies. We havent stopped talking about Rasa and just recommending it to one and all. My husband has promised to take me back to Rasa ASAP!"

  • Review by Nicola from London, UK

    "Our stay at Rasa was beyond our expectation's. Local Indian charm with international service standards.Pawan and his team thought of everything and provided us with the most relaxed stay. 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."

    "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."

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!"
