Yoga and beach retreat at Rasa Experience
on Jan 5, 2020
This was the perfect way to end my trip to South India. After traveling three weeks through Karnataka and Kerala it was wonderful to be pampered at Rasa and enjoy the beach in a swimming suit and feel comfortable. The room that I stayed in at Rasa was easily the most comfortable and it had the best bed of my trip. It was very nice to have supplies for making tea or coffee in my room, though everyone at Rasa always make sure I had plenty to drink and eat. It was a wonderful experience and many thanks to Pawan and the excellent staff at Rasa.
Trip of a lifetime
on Dec 9, 2019
I was nervous when I first booked this trip - I'd never been to India and had no idea what to expect other than the basic expectation of a week long yoga retreat. What I experienced was SO MUCH MORE. Pawan was quick to email us after our booking to welcome us and explain the various excursions and optional items we could add on to our trip. He helped us with everything from how to apply for a visa to coordinating our food preferences. He even moved his flight to meet us in Mumbai and travel the last leg of our journy to Goa with us.
From the moment we landed he and his amazing team handled everything - all of our meals, transportation, and daily activities. They allowed us to create the trip of our dreams, offering excursions to temples and markets while still allowing us time for realxing on the beach. The daily yoga also exceeded my expectations (finally checked sunset yoga on the beach off my to do list). The lodgings are comfortable and spacious, and the homestay feels more like staying with a family in their home than in a hotel (which we loved!).
If you're a solo female (or in our case, three young female friends) this is the best way to visit the region and see the sights. The team is kind and attentive and will go above and beyond to meet your needs and make sure your trip is one you'll never forget. I honestly can't say enough nice things, and even though we met as strangers, we left a week later feeling a part of the Rasa Family.
Can't wait to visit again and again!
The trip of a lifetime!

I had no idea what to expect coming to India for the first time, and this trip exceeding my expectations in every way! I came with two girlfriends of mine. Pawan was coming back from a trip to Mumbai and even changed his flight to be on the same one as us. From the moment we met him, we felt completely comfortable. He is one of a kind, so thoughtful, and always making the trip extra special. We were treated like family from the moment we met everyone. He has hired an outstanding group of young men that have all become like family to us. Pawan, Sajid, Arjun, Faisal, Tahir, Rounak, and Wasim were all extremely friendly, professional, and so fun to get to know. Pawan goes above and beyond to cater to your dietary needs, interests, and schedule. It was hands down the best vacation I have ever been on, and none of us wanted to leave after a week. Some of the highlights were: Yoga on the beach, kayaking in the ocean, the spice farm, hike to the hindu temple, massages, and day market. Pawan is truly a gem, and we feel so lucky to have him in our lives now. Book this trip and enjoy! :)
Attention to detail
on Dec 4, 2019
This was my second stay with a Pawan and the Rasa Family; on both occasions as a solo traveller. Pawan enjoys attending to the every need of his guests and our daily itinerary is individualised to accommodate this. The food is exquisite and the cookery lessons teaching us how to cook those dishes are a bonus. I can not recommend Rasa Experience enough . . . . You will not be disappointed !
HIking Yoga Adventure at Rasa Resorts
on Oct 29, 2019
This trip surpassed my expectations! I came to Kashmir looking for an 'off the grid' place to experience something new, and I found that in Rasa retreat and more. The attention to detail, quality of food, anticipation of needs, and day to day organisation made this one of my favourite holidays. All aspects of my week were taken care of (which was nice as I was travelling solo). Thank you to Pawan and his tema for such a memorable experience.
