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. We unfortunately managed a last minute deal and found out that it has a no alcohol, no... More

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

I could not find a better way to gently face India than staying ad Devaaya Ayurveda Resort in Divar Island Goa. The hilly resort was originally called "pleasure Island" and it is still true. From the awakening with an hour of yoga ( salute the sun ) to the great ayurveda breakfast, from the morning treatments and the fantastic vegetarian... 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

We didn't have the time to stay for a full week or two, but followd a recommendation of friends, in order to get to know the place really. So we cannot assess the ayurvedic side of things much, we didn't really detox nor meditate. Which seems to be the major bonus of the place judging from friend's experience. So this... More

Two weeks at Devaaya was relaxing and left us both feeling revitalised. This was a return visit, after an earlier brief visit, and we enjoyed it for its peacefulness, happy service and focus on a healthy lifestyle.
