Up until now, I'd avoided visiting south Goa due to the lack of appealing accommodation options. The majority of places to stay are luxury resorts or beach huts, which tend to be a bit basic. Turiya Villa & Spa nicely fills the gap by providing unique and extremely comfortable mid range accommodations. It's conveniently located near Palolem and Patnem beaches. The 100 year old villa has been expertly renovated and is absolutely stunning. Once you step inside, you're completely transported from mundane Goa village to an oasis where wellness is the focus. There's organic food, home cooked meals, and an Ayurvedic spa which is run by the owner's sister who is an Ayurvedic doctor. She gave me a wonderful deep tissue massage that really got down into my muscles. However, the highlight of my stay was definitely the beautifully decorated patio. I spent every spare moment relaxing there. It's impossible not to feel an overwhelming sense of tranquility and rejuvenation at Turiya.
