One of the most amazing trips i have ever had.From the best Burmese food to street side veg pakodas to late night bonfires, loved every bit of it!

Special thanks to Pawan and his team for this ecstatic experience. Would love to come to Kashmir every year with Rasa. Kashmir wouldn't have looked so beautiful without him and his superb hospitality.

What can we say. Our time at Rasa was extraordinary and will stay in our hearts forever.

As a single Mum traveling with my lovely 12Yr Old daughter, I wanted to make sure our first few days in Goa were well planned and 'easy'. After a tough few months I wanted to make sure we could relax and feel safe whilst we acclimatise to the wonders of India.

From the moment Pawan greeted us of our 03.30 flight until our tearful yet happy goodbye, both my daughter and myself felt part of the 'Rasa family'. Every detail of our stay felt natural and generous - from our comfortable en suite bedroom that included thoughtful daily messages and chocolates by our beds; the delicious homemade wondrous meals (3 times daily!); the trips to town for shopping, ice cream hunting, church and temple exploration and experiencing our first ever Bollywood movie at the local cinema; as well as a trip to a spice farm and a invigorating hike to a fascinating local Hindu temple.

Pavan's Rasa team included the brilliant Sajid and Igol who were always on hand and full of smiles and laughter, plus the incredible chief and patient teacher, Shekhar. Our x2 daily yoga sessions with Dr Patel and on the beach with Vaishnavi were wonderful and inclusive.

When it was time to move on further up North, Pavan could not do enough to help us with recommendations and ideas as to our next destination to ensure we continued to experience India's magic.

It is really difficult to describe the impact of our time with the Rasa team. Except to say I would highly recommend as an incredible and different experience.

Until next time :-) Ally&Eva

We had a wonderful few days at Rasa . We had just completed a himalayan hike and this was the perfect antidote. From the moment Pawan greeted us of our 06.30 flight until our departure everything was fantastic. It was a complete holistic experience. The accommodation was lovely very simply elegant . There was so many lovely little special touches. The lovely messages and chocolates on our bed daily . The wonderful food 3 times a day . The lovely pre dinner drink and conversation. The trip to the spice farm and the hike to the hindu temple accompanied by the two great lads Sajid and Igbol were very enjoyable . The hike concluded with a lovely picnic on a hidden rock with fantastic views. We had great cooking lessons from Shekhar who is such a relaxed and amazing cook
Our yoga on the beach with Vaishnavi was very special . The scene was set up beautifully by the lads wth our mats and towels laid out really well and always by a bottle of water and a lovely flower.
Vaishnavi was a great teacher with an air of calmness about her but she also had a sense of fun .
Overall our stay with Pawan and his team will live on in our memories for a long time .

We visited Rasa in Kashmir and had an incredible week with Pawan and his team. The food was amazing, yoga a favorite part of our day, and the excursions were absolutely wonderful! Pawan tailored our trip for us, taking great care to plan hikes, meals, and other activities that we were interested in. We had a first class tour of Srinagar and the surrounding area! Kashmir is a beautiful place, we felt extremely safe the entire time, and loved meeting the locals! Pahalgam was our favorite, the mountains so awesome and the road trip to/from the city full of interesting sights and stops! Rasa in Kashmir was an adventure we will always keep in our hearts!!

Pawan and his dedicated team have created a beautiful oasis on many levels at this gorgeous retreat. The attention to detail and service is second to none. Well located, beautifully appointed and the food was amazing! My yoga instructor was fantastic and I loved the opportunity to practice in a variety of scenic locations. Travelling solo can be a bit daunting at times but the Rasa team dispelled any safety concerns. Loads of local sightseeing and some hiking excursions a couple of hours away were brilliant! Too many highlights to mention- just go there!
