You will discover one of the pearls of India with magnificent beaches unspoiled by over-tourism.

    La La Land Resort is located between the beaches of Patnem and Palolem, both just a short walk away. The stunning shala at the resort is surrounded by nature and exotic bird life, offering you a haven of peace and tranquility while still staying close to all the activities that beach life has to offer.

    The resort is a five-minute rickshaw ride away from the local town of Chaudi, where you can find all the necessary services you require, such as ATM’s, pharmacies, supermarkets, and traditional fruit and vegetable markets. On the main streets of Palolem or Patnem, you can easily find bikes to rent, money exchanges, travel agents, and shops selling clothes, souvenirs, and everyday essentials such as toiletries.

    The resort is also five minutes away from a very good dentist. Doctor can be on call and the resort is only 40 minutes away from a very good private hospital offering all European standards.

      "Loved the beautiful, tranquil setting of Yoga Land and felt at peace as soon as I entered the Shala. Yoko is a highly skilled yoga teacher who radiates positive energy. I was lucky enough to experience both one-to-one yoga sessions and a class environment. He has a compassionate approach, gently encouraging you to go further in your practice. I look forward to returning."

      "Would have been excellent if the mosquitoes were not there. People, location, vibe everything is really great. They of course can't help mosquitoes, so if you know that mosquitoes like you be prepared. To me it was a bit difficult to stay calm and focus with the bzzzz around my head. But even so the managed to give me great time!!"

    • Review by A traveler from St. Catharines, Ontario

      "I bought a 5 class pass using pay pal with Yoko since it saves you 100 rupees per class. Each of the 4 different instructors I had were all amazing. I did 3 vinyasa flow, an aerial and a meditation class. I learned a lot from everyone. The Shala is beautiful and airy with fans in place if needed. I would highly recommend going (especially if you are luck enough to be staying at La la land)."

    • Review by Laladeelish Incheon from South Korea

      "Lala Land's Yoga Land shala is quietly tucked away in the forest at the end of a trail that weaves through the property.The shala is beautiful and private. I specifically went to Yoga Land in December 2015 and January 2016 (not long after the shala opening) for Mysore adjustments, and Yoko's calm guidance helped me with alignment and deepening. The classes were small-sized which was great for personal attention! Also, Yoko offers a light and relaxing shavasana massage. Thanks, Yoko! :)"
