Ashiyana Retreat Centre information
Lonely Planet review
This ‘tropical retreat centre’ situated right on Mandrem Beach has a long list of classes and courses available from November to April, from retreats and yoga holidays to daily drop-in workshops, meditation and yoga sessions, along with a spa, massage and ‘massage camp’ for those wanting to learn the tricks of the tickly trade. Accommodation is in one of its gorgeous, heritage-styled rooms and huts; the super-cute Mango Tree House is especially lovely. The centre’s largely organic, vegetarian restaurant dishes up tasty buffet brunches and dinners daily to guests and drop-in casuals alike. Costs start at ₹400 for a single drop-in yoga class; check the website for all-inclusive course packages and email all enquiries.
