ITC Grand Goa (5 Grade Deluxe)
Set in 45 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, shimmering lagoons and meandering waterways, the ITC Grand Goa is one of Goa’s finest hotels. Here, you can detoxify and enjoy a treatment or two from the award winning Sereno Spa, then relax by the beautiful free-form pool and soak up the warm Goan sun. Partake in the regular yoga sessions and start your day relaxed and stress-free.
Nilaya Heritage Boutique Hotel
Hidden away on the hillside, deep in the Goan jungle, Nilaya Hermitage is an extraordinary getaway, built from local rust coloured laterite stone, complimented with shades of blue and the lush greens of the surrounding forest. Boasting a meditation room, plus the option to try out traditional Indian Ayurvedic Spa treatments, this hotel has all the aspects you need to have a very relaxing break. Yoga sessions are available daily (payable locally) at the Nilaya Hermitage, but once you’ve spent some time surrounded by the calm and tropical atmosphere with their in-house yoga master, the sense of tranquillity that you’ll reach is second to none.
An exclusive hotel, the Nilaya Hermitage has just 13 guestrooms, meaning that you can experience the true feeling of escapism whilst submerged in the Goan jungle.
Taj Exotica Resort & Spa (5 Grade Deluxe)
Set directly on the beach, surrounded by lush manicured gardens filled with tropical flowers and coconut palms, the Taj Exotica awaits. An impressive 5* Deluxe hotel, which exudes luxury and prowess in every aspect, gives you the chance to escape everyday life and unwind. Meander through the gardens and down towards the beach, where you can experience yoga at its finest, whilst listening to the Arabian Sea gently lap up the golden shores. Afterwards, head to the award-winning Jiva Spa, and treat yourself to an authentic Indian, all-natural treatment or two.
If like we are, you’re now feeling ready to don your yoga pants, unroll your mat and unwind in the warm Goan sunshine, Goa Experience has the perfect selection of yoga (and Spa) holidays, specifically designed for you.
