“A hidden paradise!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

This place is a real treasure. I did not know that such secluded beautiful beaches do still exist in Goa. It's almost a private beach due to the fact that the access is only via private grounds. If you do not know the place, you will not find it. It is so clean, no mosquitos, no flies. The bungalows are comfortable, with good matrasses and ensuite shower/wc.
The view is to die for! The food is fantastic, pure and tasteful. This is absolutely the best spot in Goa to do yoga and to stay if you are really looking for a real getaway, for peacefullness and tranquility. Surely to be recommended!

While looking for a resort in Goa located at a small and quiet beach I stumbled upon the Ashtanga Yoga School. It is located on a small private beach in South Goa where numbers of tourist are intentionally kept low. Therefore it is a great place to stay if you want to avoid hordes of tourists and are interested in some peace instead: Not even mobile service can disturb your relaxation! :)

Contrary to many bigger resorts, the staff is very caring and feels honestly responsible for your wellbeing. Above that, the food is great (veg & non-veg). The little beach-facing huts are very welcoming, the beds are comfortable and everything was properly cleaned. Still, one should (obviously) not expect 5-star luxury as the huts are from all-natural materials and not air-tight (i.e. no A/C). So you should not be afraid of the occasional insect or spider! :) It should also be noted that warm water is only available on request. However, due to the hot weather I found the water (pumped from a well) to have the perfect temperature for a good cooling effect.

Despite all the good experience I rate the resort 'only' as very good. This is because I arrived very early in the season and there was no power at that time. Furthermore, most of the days I could not use my shower due to technical issues with the pump. Both issues were very well compensated by the staff. Although I did not mind, I felt a information prior to booking or arrival would have been appropriate.

If I get the chance, I will definitely come back for another visit, but then with my girlfriend and a bit later in the season. All in all I would definitely recommend this resort for anyone looking for a quiet (& relatively basic) place in nature for good value!

Room Tip: All the huts face the beach and are between 1 and 15 meters away from it. You cannot do anything wro...

It was more than what we were looking for. Wonderful Crew and absolute peace outside and within. Could do with a little hot water but it is not necessary. Loved it. Will be back for sure.

I wanted a yoga retreat in a beautiful place. I searched the web for a place in Goa that was on the beach. There are plenty of yoga schools that claim to be on the beach. But upon reading reviews or contacting them, you generally find that they have a small space behind huts on a busy tourist beach like Palolem.

I reserved a place with Pardeshi the yoga teacher at "Ashtanga Yoga School" in Goa as he claimed to be on a quite secluded beach in south Goa, With a backdrop of terraced coconut groves Cola Beach is located on a spectacular uninhabited beach and private bay in south Goa.

Pardeshi instruction and help throughout the course was friendly and informative. The man loves and lives yoga and I couldn't help but be inspired.

Not only did he teach me but he taught me how to teach and gently whilst with encouragement led each of us to practice holding the class and test our newly learnt skills.

Not only will you learn so much and gain confidence you will stay on what maybe the most spectacular beach in Goa. It was hard work but at the same time I have never felt so relaxed. I also made some great friends.

The icing on the cake for me was the most comfortable sprung mattress I have slept on and the food was healthy, tasty and traditional Goan.

Thank you all so much.

Room Tip: The beach cottages were all made of natural materials, they were simple but comfortable. The combina...
