Purple Valley was a great yoga experience for the two weeks I stayed: a lovely location with a friendly staff and excellent yoga teachers. The energy of the place was quite unique, which really made it easy to concentrate on the yoga practise to it's fullest.
Purple Valley is not the place for travellers looking for a spa style or 5-star hotel ameneties, but a simple, lovely set up for yogis who like to keep it clean and simple. The food is plentiful and delicious, and nobody of the group I stayed with had any complaints about the quality nor the quantity!
The beach and the closest large village (Mapusa) are a taxi ride away, which can be a little tiresome as you need to do a little more scheduling, but days spent by the pool are relaxing enough to muster up the energy to get going on other days.
There are three separate houses to stay in, and at leas in the Ganesh house I had my room, you really want to respect the silent times, as pretty much everything happening next door is audible. For light sleepers, earplugs are a must.
I would definately go back to Purple Valley for the atmosphere only, and for wonderful yoga, of course.More
