"The Perfect Beach Yoga Retreat!"

Manav and Samita were excellent instructors; my practice has progressed & deepened so much further in these 10 days than in the last 4 years that I've been practicing! The location was also perfect right by the beach. They allowed flexibility in your schedule and was very accommodating. The team there aside from the instructors were also very kind and helpful. It was truly a great experience. Even the huts offered an authentic experience. Really worth it. I would do this again!

"Amazing experience, I will never forget"

I liked everything about it. I loved staying at Lotus, I met amazing people and we all shared the same beautiful experience. Manav and Samita were amazing Yoga teachers as well as beautiful people. The guys working at Lotus were also really helpful and very friendly, they also made the experience really enjoyable. I loved every second, I will never forget my time in Lotus. Thank you so much. Patricia.

It's a fantastic yoga retreat that I can only recommend other people to join. Manav and Samita are such nice and welcoming human beings and incredible good teachers. Their staff are helpful and service minded and also make you feel at home and very welcome. The place is literally situated on the beach with the sunset in front of the shala for the evening yoga session - simply perfect.

"Trip of a lifetime"

i don't even know where to begin with what I liked, everything was fabulous. Samita and Manav are both not only fantastic yoga teachers, but also wonderfully welcoming and lovely people and nothing was too much trouble.

The food was delicious and there was always a great variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Oh and the juices and smoothies were so fresh and tasty!

we were so well looked after by everyone at the retreat and the whole vibe was just so easy going and relaxing, I only wish I could have stayed longer!

Highly recommend the Lotus Oasis Beach Huts and will be definitely be booking again!

It was the best thing which I done for my self in life! Samita & MAnav were amazing...it was a dream trip, starting with a place, yoga classes , people who are staying as a guest through the staff...thank you all, it was magical.

The beach hut was simple but comfortable and had everything you need. There were lovely touches like the bowl of water that was refreshed every morning on your porch to wash your feet before entering to stop you traipsing sand all over your hut. I also like the hammock outside where I would sit and read or listen to my neighbour playing guitar.

The food was very tasty and being vegan there was very little I couldn't eat. The staff were always mindful to tell me what was vegan friendly and what wasn't.

Both instructors are very friendly and skilled at teaching yoga to different levels in the same class giving alternative postures or poses to the less experienced or flexible so that people didn't feel left out or inadequate.

There was a great community spirit with everyone getting along.

The location is amazing being at the south end of the beach which seems to be a bit quieter than the north end. You can hear the sounds of the Arabian Sea as you are drifting off to sleep.

I also appreciated the airport transfers as this removed a lot of stress arriving and departing a country I had never been to and felt intimidated by.

"What an amazing experience!"

Everything was perfect - the location, weather, people, food - Manav & Sam are truly gifted and their teaching techniques cannot be compared with any Western classes

"Inspiring yoga at inspired location"

Yogis Manav and Samita were excellent teachers and hosts. Food was exceptional. Facilities right on the ocean. Sunsets extraordinary.

"Yoga paradise right on a beautiful and tranquil beach"

The retreat is located in a great spot, right on the beautiful beach and towards the end of the beach where it is more quiet and you can relax. It was amazing being able to see the sunset whilst doing yoga and hearing the sound of the waves. Unfortunately I got sick and wasn't able to do the whole retreat. However, I appreciated Manav and Samita's support and flexibility with it.

"Best yoga retreat I've been to"

I loved my time at Lotus Oasis Yoga, it was like I was home with my family. The instructors and staff are amazing people, always willing to help and to make you feel at home. The location is amazing, right on the beach with beautiful sunsets every evening. The food is always different and always delicious. The room was comfy and had everything I needed. The yoga and instructors was just what I was looking for, I came out after each class feeling really good. Manav and Samita are really good teachers, they push you to get better and guide you on what to do really well. Basically for a yoga retreat in Goa, don't look any further. I will definitely be back :)

"Paradise "

The atmosphere that Manav and Sammi created was one of tranquility and peace. The setting was beautiful, doing yoga at sunset was exceptional. There was a lovely area to relax out of the sun, where you really felt the softness of the sea breeze.

They were excellent yogis, encouraging me to do what I thought was impossible. The food was next to none.

"Most perfect resort"

This being my first time as a solo traveller I found Lotus Oasis resort the most wonderful nurturing environment with everyone feeling that they have become part of a large caring family. Nothing is too much trouble as all the staff do their utmost to assist with anything that you require. The atmosphere is so calming and relaxed and Manav an Samita are the most excellent hosts making everyone feel so welcome. All the staff have the same ethos. The food is absolutely top rate with a wonderful varied selection of Indian vegetarian dishes. Although the accommodation is basic that is its total charm. I may have arrived on my own at the age of 59 but I was never alone as everyone , no matter what age , is like minded and so sociable. It was the most perfect 10 days with really challenging yoga overlooking the sea. The sound of the waves crashing is an added bonus. I could not fault my experience. Thank you Manav and Samita- truly a wonderful retreat.

"A stay you won’t regret!"

I spent 10 days at Lotus Oasis at the beginning of January, and I couldn’t have had a better time. The yoga teachers, Samita, Manav and Rama are experienced, kind and friendly with great teaching skills. Everyone who was working there made their best effort to make sure I had a great time.

Sanju, Ravi and Santosh - the boys working in the restaurant - always welcomed us with a smile accompanied by an incredible service! It’s lovated ON the beach, so everything you do is to the sound of the ocean. The beach was clean (cleaned each morning) and I was offered to have my hut cleaned every day. It got a bit cool in the evening, so I recommend bringing a sweater or a cardigan. I will definitely return again, and again and again.

"Great place to relax and get stronger"

Yoga sessions were varied - mixture of strength work, hip openers, core - and a good length (90 mins) to allow meditation or breath work too.

The yoga instructors are very competent, adjusting as and when necessary, and very helpful in showing different options for poses.

The food is fantastic! And special served meals for Christmas and New Year...awesome!

A variety of activities such as movie night and live music night make this a really friendly yoga retreat.

"Book this place"

After many hours searching the internet for different yoga reteats I decided on The Lotus Oasis Yoga retreat. It was the best decision I ever made.

Manav and his wife Sam have created the most beautiful and welcoming place I have ever stayed.

The location of the resort and how it is positioned on the beach are excellent.

Every morning I would step from my bungalow straight onto the sand walk onto the beach and wake up in paradise.

Morning and afternoon yoga lesson on this beach were fantastic. Manav and Sam are excellent teachers.

The relaxed atmosphere and friendly guests made me feel at home straight away. I made many news friends who I will be seeing again.

My Yoga improved more than I thought possible in such a short space of time.

This was the best holiday I have ever had and will be returning here as soon as possible.

"Far exceeded my high expectations!"

Reading the other reviews before leaving for Oasis Lotus, I knew that I was in for a pretty great stay, but Sam, Manav and the team surprised me every day with their wonderful hospitality and I couldn't recommend the retreat enough! I am a beginner to yoga, and whilst the classes were challenging, there were plenty of variations I could try if it moved on to more advanced positions. It was particularly spectacular to finish the evening class facing the sun setting over the ocean.

The retreat itself is just as beautiful as I could have hoped - comfortable and characterful, with places to sunbathe as well as escape the sun when the midday heat got intense. The upstairs area provided the perfect place to read in the ocean breeze and cool down. On to the food - among the best I have ever tasted, we were treated to a variety of different options every meal time, making it a rare occasion that the group didn't go up for second or even third helpings!

Patnem beach itself is an excellent location for this kind of experience - it has a safe, quiet, untouched feel, whilst offering the option to visit bars and hear some live music - you could be as sociable or self-contained as you liked. Sam and Manav were always keen to help with any queries about areas to travel or how to shop, which made me feel more confident as a lone traveller to try checking out some of the neighbouring beaches. All in all I have a hard time imagining who wouldn't enjoy Oasis Lotus - a perfect retreat.

I loved everything. I went without knowing nothing about the place or someone that had been there, and I don't regret a thing. I did my ttc and it was amazing. The food, the staf, the teachers, everything was great. Very friendly and concerned. I came home a lot more richer.

"1full week of yoga and relaxing"

I absolutely loved my stay. The yoga classes were extremely good: high level but still open for any level. Every class was well explained and the instructors were very professional, yet open for feedback.

The shacks were comfortable and I had everything I needed. The food tasted excellent and was always healthy.

I was very satistified by this retreat!

"Priceless. Even better than I could have imagined"

Yoga teacher training from Indian instructors (owners) who are thoughtful, kind and fun. Delicious meals and super-helpful & friendly staff. Beachfront yoga classes. Guided meditation on the beach. Clean and comfortable beach huts with porch hammocks, ocean view and queen bed with mosquito net tents. Close to shops and restaurants. Not pretentious and completely authentic to the Indian culture. Boat trip to a private beach for yoga class. Field trip to spice farm. Plus Samita’s henna skills are unparalleled. Great price!! Will absolutely be back. Highly recommend for Yoga Alliance teacher certification. Small class sizes so tons of one on one help.

"Thank you Samira and Manav"

Manav and Samita have created a gorgeous place with a beautiful vibe. As yoga instructors they are both authentic and supportive in such a way that each of us present were able to grow stronger during our stays. The atmosphere is so laid back, and each person can thus tailor their experience to meet their needs. The accommodations are perfect for the place (beach huts - with individual bathrooms, great mosquito nets, only cold water showers), encouraging like-minded relaxed yoga travellers to visit. The vegetarian food is absolutely delicious and plentiful. Thanks so much for such a lovely stay!

"Wonderful experience!"

I loved doing my TTC at Lotus! It was a very special month, and I loved every second of it. The whole team makes sure that everyone feels welcome and they create a great athmosphere. The whole TTC was very well structured, and I learned sooo much from the wonderful teachers in such a short time. I also loved the specials they did, such as Sunrise Yoga on a secluded beach after a boat-tour or a visit to an organic spicefarm with a tour, a great lunch and a Yoga-session there. It made the whole experience even more special.

It was the best decision to book my TTC here and I would recommend it to anyone!
