"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.

"Amazing Yoga Holiday "

I loved everything. It was charming and so cool. The Yogis Manav and Sam were excellent. The food was absolutely delicious. I wish I could have stayed longer. Look no further, this is the place to go to in India.

"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.

"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!

The huts are simple- as expected, however there is a toilet and shower, also a basin included. So that was surprising for me and really great. The beds are comfortable. I did not have WiFi in my hut, because I was too far from the reception desk. In the front ones, I guess there would be. The Yoga lessons are awesome and the beach and location are really calm and clean. The only thing I was not so happy about: loads of dogs all around and especially during night they were howling so much. And a train seems to be going close by there, so there are quite a few sounds during night. Get earplugs and you'll be fine! Food is awesome and fresh! Staff is great, fun and helpful

My husband and I stayed in Lotus Oasis last November and it was wonderful. We were met at the airport by a taxi, which we paid for in advance, and he drove us to the row of shops at the entrance to Patnem beach. Two guys met us there and insisted on carrying our bags down the beach to Lotus, where we were met my Manav and Sam. They were lovely and showed us to our hut and we were free to settle right in. The hut is basic, as expected, but perfect. The bathroom doesn't feel so clean compared to western standards and I was always checking the toilet roll for ants before I used it, but I got used to this and the cool showers quickly. It is amazing that they put these huts up and take them down again every year! Expect insects, crabs, frogs in your hut. Though you have a mosquito net, so you are safe when in bed. I loved this experience. Only problem was the bed was really hard and the pillows were not good. So it wasn't too comfortable and the first few nights we slept quite badly. It didn't put me off though. The food here is amazing. We ate in Lotus most nights and it was cheap and delicious. I think Goa is more expensive than other parts of India but still very cheap compared to UK. The breakfast was included in the price of our stay and it was great - cereal and fruit but also daal and bread and rice - for breakfast! We ate 3 big meals every day. The menu includes food from all over the world and lots of delicious cocktails. The red wine was cold, which was strange, but maybe it's too hot not to refrigerate it. And was around 2 GBP for a massive glass so I didn't mind. We did eat out in other places along the beach a few times and they were lovely too. No bad experiences. Every morning after breakfast we walked along the beach, which was lovely. Quite a quiet beach compared to Palolem, which is the next one over. We got a rickshaw to Palolem a few times for shopping and it was fun but we were glad to be staying on Patnem where you don't get harassed so much by the shop owners and boat tour people. There were yoga classes twice per day - at sunrise and sunset. I usually went to one per day, depending on when we woke and what we were doing that day. There were a mix of teachers, some better than others. I liked them all but my husband had difficulty with some and stopped going to classes as they didn't give enough guidance for beginners. Beautiful view from the yoga shala though, and the lovely gentle breeze. We spent a lot of time upstairs in the 'treehouse' reading and relaxing in the hottest part of the day. I fell asleep there lots of times! And you can eat your dinner and get drinks up there. The guys who were serving the food and drinks were so lovely. Everyone was so lovely! Sometimes at night there was live music downstairs and sometimes we listened or we went upstairs to read while it was in the background. I think it usually stopped about 11pm though, so it was quiet for bedtime. There is a noise curfew on that beach, which I appreciated! Overall, this was a wonderful stay and if we were ever to find ourselves back in Goa I would love to come back to Lotus Oasis.
