Found this gem on AirBnB while randomly exploring a workcation. Bhakti Kutir as the name suggests is an eco-friendly cum yoga haven. This is not the place for a regular kind of a holiday if you are expecting that. Located at South Goa, this is a place where you will enjoy the calmness and the stillness of the surroundings. Let’s get into the finer details of everything - Rooms: The rooms are basically cottages based on a very earthen village theme. There are stand alone cottages and also duplex cottages. We stayed in a stand alone cottage No.3 which was quite large and spacious. The rooms have basic amenities which will ensure you have a comfortable stay. Keep in mind that being the kind of place this is, expect a lot of insects and crawlers to be your room partners. The bathroom in our room was huge with a western and an Indian squat toilet. ( The Indian styled here is used to make compost, so if you decide to squat for your dump you will contribute towards nature) The shower has no hot water but it’s made available to you on request. Our room experience was decent and good; keep in mind that the cottages have lots of crevices so that may not be good in terms of privacy for some. Food: The kitchen service here is right up there with the bests. At Bhakti Kutir they take vegan and vegetarian food seriously. You will find many options to choose from - Fruit bowls, Ragi Dosa, Jackfruit Upma ( Yeah 😎) , Kuttu , Avocado toast, smoothies etc to name a few. They do serve eggs upon request. They also brew their own Kombucha Tea; it was quite fascinating to find it here. During our stay we had only breakfast here and the experience was top rated. You will find Chetan and Satya here who will be eager and happy to help you choose from the menu. Connectivity: We were worried about the network and WiFi connectivity here. Ute and Yasho had assured us that we won’t face any issues with the connectivity. We had a good strong connection which allowed us to work as well as enjoy our vacation. We highly recommend this place to people who want to stay away from the crowd and noise. If you are into nature and yoga then you may perhaps want to come and live here forever! And if you are someone like us who like nature and calmness and want best of both the worlds then too it will be a perfect fit for you.…
We stayed there for a traincation at the Bliss Circus, which is right next door. Bhakti Kutir is made up of individual huts that are really basic: a bed with mosquito net, some shelves and a lockable chest. The toilet is outside. There is a Western-style toilet, no worries, but you can also poop in a hole, if you like ;) The shower only has cold water :( During the day, the power cuts out several times - either intentionally because they are building something and need to cut it, or just because. There is WIFI, but it's slow (and also gone when the power is out). The huts are built right into the jungle, so bring earplugs. Wildlife goes crazy at 6:30 am and you will be woken up by birds, dogs, monkeys etc. The food is good but the service is slow. You will have to wait 15+ minutes for even basic drinks. Very Indian, I would say. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned upon request. There is a laundry service where you pay per piece of clothing. There are also ayurvedic massages at Bhakti, but I was not a fan. It was an herbal stamp massage, which is not my thing, and the masseuse was chatting to her colleague half of the time. It's a 10 minute walk to either Palolem (more party) or Patnem (more quiet) beach. Loads of yoga and restaurants in the area.…
Just have been there to look at their "farmers market" which is advertised in the area around. The name in quite misleading. Have of it are western women e.g. selling aquarel picture of a quality which also my grandchild could have done. The other half are Indians selling the typical thing which you get at the tourist shops at the beaches. To me that looks like they there thing every guest coming to goa is an idiot.
Nice huts, beautiful roofless shower, nice space outside the hut to read and rest while being in the jungle. Really nice staff and excellent food!!! We stayed there in order to receive Ayurveda treatments which were wonderful!
I’m in love with this place, the attention to detail and the conceptual nature. You can tell that the ‘natural’ is not just a superficial trendy label but it’s actually happening right there before your eyes. You’ll become part of the jungle so don’t expect the Hilton and bring earplugs they will come hand in the mornings (birds get up early! 😍) They also have a great yoga teacher Sunita who runs classes of meditation and yoga daily, and also yoga teacher trainings and private classes. Oh and the Ayurvedic clinic is beyond words!
I've had the pleasure of attending quite a few events at Bhakti Kutir including farmer's markets which have been amazing, charity shop opening, and several live music evenings held at the stage inside the restaurant area. You have to walk upwards through trees and bushes following a path that takes you from the entrance to the restaurant area where there are tables and chairs for dining and a chillout area at the front with cushions and bolsters for your comfort. The live music nights have been outstanding! They've had open mic as well as featured artists, and my favourite has to be Peter Tegner whose wonderful ambient atmospheric loop guitar work is absolutely perfect for the dreamy setting. The parachute-like roof, and surrounding plants capture the sound perfectly. The menu is a little uninspiring but mainly caters for vegans and vegetarians and is kept small so that they can change it each day, which is clever. The toilets are of the eco type with instructions on how to use them and the whole place has the feel of escaping into the deep jungle just for a while.....…
We had some lovely food here and happened to catch a live music evening. It was a memorable experience. However my impression of the place is that it is a bit too dimly lit and that made me a bit uncomfortable. I may not consider staying on the property. Also be armed with mosquito repellents. They have made a lovely green space so that attracts the bugs..
Since I have been playing squash regularly, I decided for a goa trip to loosen my stressed muscle. In the trip, yoga was my number one priority. While walking on the hills of Palolem beach I saw a Buddha board and inquired about the yoga classes. I was in luck as the class had just started at 9 am (except on Sunday). The instructor, Sunita Singh, was so good that the yoga journey for 90 mims felt like a dream. She made us embrace our body, mind and soul. Also the fees was reasonable. It's a must visit Yoga class if you are into Yoga or want to experience it. Om Shanti Om!
Disclaimer: I think this place will be fab during season. Not really made for rains as it's understaffed and half shut. You are pretty much stuck in your room under the netting. The pluses: it's a jungle. A beautifully landscaped, designed place with 22 odd hits hidden behind lush foliage. The vegan menu is yummy. The Indian stuff is good though rather spicy. Ayurvedic Massage is available at any time on site. The staff are earnest and nice. Cons: not meant for off season. We reached early in the morning and though we had communicated that we will check in early and had received a reply okaying this, there was no one there for us to check in. No one! We were bitten by mosquitoes for two hours before any human arrived to help! I was super pissed off and would have gone elsewhere if not for the fact that the place had been recommended to us (and that no cabs in goa to order) Big BIG tip: carry loads of mosquito repellent. You cannot sit for a second if you don't have repellent. Big tip: food takes ages so factor in at least 45inutes to an hour from when you place your order. (Again this could be off season issue) The palolem beach is walking distance which is great. Step out post breakfast. Spend the day out. Come back to a massage and dinner. It's a place for slow living, early nights.…
