A wonderful retreat, where I did not need to lift a finger for the duration. I was there during the monsoon season, so it rained a LOT, but it was nice to see rain for the first time in a long time. I was relaxed and well fed. Take a book to read as there is little in the way... More

Dear Anjtex, Thank you for your valuable review of Devaaya. We are very pleased that we made your retreat a great one. Just to clarify the issue you had about breakfast. One of the principles of Ayurveda is not to combine raw foods with cooked food, Hence the fruit is served 2 hours after breakfast. We do hope to see... More

Enjoyed the entreat, lovely people all stuff were fantastic but the post customer service was terrible. A month later I am waiting for my medication from the company. Errors were made when checking out medication before leaving the retreat. After coming I noticed the medications were incorrect to what was prescribed. Having called and emailed many times, I am waiting... More

My colleague and I visited Devaaya Ayurveda Retreat during the long weekend at the beginning of October. If you are looking for a quiet, restful place for ayurvedic massages and programs, this is the place for you. If not, do not go here.

Dear Chipalkatti, Thank you for taking the time to review Devaaya. As you rightly said Devaaya is not a place for people who want eat, drink and make merry it is more of a Wellness center with emphasis on Ayurveda. People come here for recuperation/rejuvenation as well as for treatments. Devaaya also teaches you a healthy lifestyle. The diet is... More

I spent 27 days at Devaaya and overall, it was a wonderful experience. My reason for going was to get away to someplace quiet and also to do the Pancha Karma treatment for Detoxification. I was extremely satisfied with my treatments. The Doctors and the massage therapists at the clinic are exceptional as are the restaurant staff. All the staff... More

This is Ayurveda how it should NOT be. I absolutely can not follow the many positive comments here. The resort is almost empty during low season, which is probably due to lack of returning guests. See my comments below. Doctors: Generally they are good, but there is an absolute lack of information. You always have to ask and they are... More

The only complaint I have is that I did not have enough time to spend here. From arriving at the gates of Devaaya you are made to feel like a special guest. The retreat is situated on the only island in Goa, and the journey there takes you on a ferry, through picturesque villages, lots of greenery and Goa-style houses.... More
