Here’s a lovely review from EmYoga, whose retreat group we had the pleasure of hosting this season as our very first guests in our brand new home on Polem Beach.
Retreat in ParadiseBreath taking location, peaceful and secluded in a hidden bay in south Goa. The accommodations offers plenty of comfort with delightful and tasteful interiors. The two yoga shala facing the sea have the most amazing view with experienced instructors offering a variety of classes. The staff are very friendly and helpful to look after all your needs. The food is perfectly delicious fresh vegetarian food and are able to accommodate for any dietary needs you might have. Overall I felt like I had stepped into paradise as soon as I arrived and I’m already looking forward to my next stay next season.
Absolutely magicalBamboo is set in an astonishingly beautiful location in South Goa. During my stay we saw only a handful of non-residents on the entire beautiful beach cove where this paradise is nestled. The huts are well sized and incredibly comfortable and the food is plentiful and always delicious. The staff are all so helpful and will assist you with anything you need while staying here. All in all, I can’t imagine a better place to unwind and delve into your yoga practice.
You want to unwind in a beautiful setting and searching for a Yoga Retreat? This is the place to be...In case you are currently surfing the web, searching for a Yoga Retreat in Goa - you can now stop: because you will not find any better place than Bamboo. From the moment I arrived, i couldn't believe how beautiful this place is. Bamboo is located at this beautiful beach, embedded in nature - nothing else around than just the beauty of the ocean, the palm trees, the huts and employees of bamboo. If you are searching for a relaxed time, with great Yoga and amazing food - you just arrived in heaven at bamboo. The huts are really comfy with an amazing outdoor bathroom. I traveled here alone, but never felt alone for one second. The age average was around 50 when I was here. I am 34 years old, however enjoyed the amazing company of all these inspiring people around. In case you want to do shopping, patnem and palolem beach is around a 20 min car drive which cost around 10dollars one way (mostly you find someone to share with). If you want to do a lot of Party and have more of a "Goa experience" with only little Yoga, maybe a location directly at patnem beach is more suitable for you. But in case you want to unwind and want to do something for your body and mind, I would definetly highly recommend to stay at bamboo. Just give it a try, i am sure you will not regret it. I also want to point out the amazing staff of bamboo. Susanne was so helpful even before I arrived, so I felt safe and welcomed the whole booking process. From the moment I arrived Dil took care of everything. He is such a character and bringing so much joy and good vibes at bamboo. Never experienced such an amazing and caring (and funny :-)) employee like him. He is there all day long - and night- to help and to chat with his unique way of doing it 😉 One of many beautiful souls that are working here - including of course also the Yoga teachers. So to sum up: If you want to do a Yoga retreat, this is the place to be . Thank you Bamboo Team for this amazing Yoga Retreat that I will never forget and will always keep in my heart.
Beautiful Bamboo - Heaven on EarthHaving visited Bamboo in March 2020 at their old location in Patnem I was very keen to see if the new version of Bamboo lived up to expectation. I was not disappointed - my friend and I were the very first guests to check in. It was wonderful to see so many of the original staff members still there as well as new staff who were all willing to cater to our needs. After such a long journey from the UK to be welcomed with a freshly prepared cool juice was a wonderful touch. We checked into our accommodation which was frontline with a sea view and a definite upgrade from the previous beach huts - even had air conditioning!! (Which I tried not to use too often). We both booked a yoga session and a massage for the next day which didn't disappoint either. In fact, I booked a treatment for almost every day of my stay with the amazing Mia, and she ironed out all the tension in my body and I was positively glowing from the fantastic coffee and coconut oil scrub. We were participating in a yoga retreat which was being run by EmYoga so for the rest of our time there we with our group and had a fantastic time. There was also meditation and yoga classes available twice a day if you hadn't come with your own retreat and all of the yoga teachers I met were fantastic and had a range of different styles of teaching which is another benefit of Bamboo Yoga. You could easily visit here as a single person and feel so well looked after by all of the staff but there is always the opportunity for some quiet time also. The location of this centre is amazing with a long sandy beach, palm trees and the opportunity witness dolphins, sea otters, eagles and many other amazing creatures too. I nearly forgot to mention the food!! OMG - how fantastic - breakfast, brunch and dinner (I used to skip breakfast) and afternoon tea at 3pm too. Vegetarian food but Bamboo would accommodate and offered to purchase chicken and fish if you pre-ordered that too.... ...Massive congratulations to Heidi and her wonderful team at Bamboo - you really have created a little piece of paradise. Can't wait to come back xxx
Paradise, Plain and SimpleWe were initially hesitant to go to the Bamboo Yoga Retreat-- nobody we knew had been there, and we weren't sure if, for us casual yoga practitioners, the idea of a yoga retreat would be better the reality. All I can say is: If you love yoga, the beach, being in nature, and relaxing-- book your stay now, and add on 2x the days you think you want. Every morning we'd wake up and listen to the waves crash 30 feet from our perfect beachfront cabin. We made our way over to the reception area for chai, fresh fruit, before wandering over to the Yoga chalet for the morning classes. We spent our days in beach chairs, reading books on the sand and splashing in the water before the afternoon yoga session as the sun set on the beach. The brunch and dinner offerings were hearty, healthy, and delicious. The classes varied greatly, and were constructive and calming! We only stayed for 3 days and found ourselves regretting not staying longer-- we are already plotting our return to Goa and to Bamboo Yoga Retreat!
