November, 2022 – Bamboo Yoga, South Goa.
Listed as one of the Top 10 Yoga Retreats by the Guardian, the retreat is a stunning beachfront Yoga resort with eco-friendly accommodation, in a prime location on one of Goa’s best beaches. The team are wonderful, the venue always offering a warm welcome. The first time I went to Bamboo it instantly felt like home!
Facing the ocean, the retreat offers us a home for the week – relaxing in the shade and enjoying the gentle breeze or step into the ocean for a dip! Patnem Beach is a short drive away full of little shops and cafes to spend an afternoon shopping or to take a break from the beach.
We will arrive at a brand new location, just down the road from its original home, the much quieter stunning golden sandy beach of Polem in South Goa awaits you!
Bamboo yoga’s new location is still right on the beach and is only 15 minutes to Patnem by car so you and your guests can have the best of both worlds. The beach property is in a village of 150 residents where it feels like stepping back in time which provides a perfect authentic Goan experience.
Imagine the peace of nature with the beach and the option of a night out in the evening when you wish for some entertainment just down the road. They will have in-house nights too. Music, beach fires and movie nights!
There are local secluded beaches that you walk to or you can take a boat. There is a tiny island too, BLISS.
If we are lucky we may see a dolphin or two and this retreat is ideally placed in November to provide long lasting sunshine vibes to carry you through winter 😁
Deposit £250 – please message me to hold your space!
