8 Day Tropical Escape to South Goa Retreat

23rd-30th March 2025
South Goa, India
Escape the pressures of everyday life and discover the beauty of South Goa through the eyes of Nicole. 
This specially curated retreat will be a beautiful experience of South Goa. Taking you to the most stunning beaches, the local shopping hotspots for all your shopping bargains, (you may want to bring an extra suitcase 😉 ) sunset meditation spots, Ayurvedic massages, and the best masala chai you’ll ever taste! 
From visiting and living in Goa for over 5 years, I know all the spots and I’ve tried to include as much as possible so you’ll fall in love with Goa and never want to leave too!

 

Arrive: Sunday 23rd March, from 3pm
Depart: Sunday 30th March, from 11.30am 
 
There are six spacious bedrooms with ensuites and one shared bathroom. 
The rooms are elegantly curated and designed with comfort and relaxation in mind.
Two rooms have access to a private outdoor garden seating area and another leads to a charming rooftop watchtower with fabulous views.
All rooms have air conditioning and WiFi.
Discover the beauty of South Goa. 
Set in a quiet village along the banks of the Talpona river, surrounded by tall palm trees, tropical fruit trees and plants, you’ll discover our stunning villa, Lua Cheia, meaning Full Moon in Portuguese… our home for the week. 
You’ll wake up each morning surrounded by luscious greenery, the sounds of the jungle and with it’s own swimming pool, you can sunbathe surrounded by coconut, papaya and banana trees, passion flowers and palms and in the evenings you’ll be able to star gaze and listen to the jungle come alive at night. 
Enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of fresh juice or Kombucha in the garden or veranda each morning before our rooftop yoga practice, and prepare for a day on the beach, exploring the little beach towns that Nicole has called home over the years, or spend the day reading your book by the ever so inviting backdrop surrounding the swimming pool.
