Welcome to the land of white sands, bright sun, sparkling waters and wavering palm trees. WELCOME TO GOA, THE AYURVEDA  PARADISE OF INDIA.

The most beautiful state of India offers a perfect environment for the Ayurveda and Spa therapy practitioners. Tropical weather and multi cultural atmosphere has attracted the travellers from all around the world to this pearl bounded by the Arabian Sea in western India. Goa was originally a Portuguese colony before 1961. You can still feel some of the Portuguese architectural heritage and some Portuguese influence in Goan cuisine.

The climate of Goa is always pleasant throughout the year with temperatures ranging from 24 to 29 degrees. It’s the only state of India which offers lush green and smooth roads away from pollution and chaos. The best time to visit Goa is from October to April. Affordable international and domestic flights are easy to find.


The centre is far from distractions and noise, but close enough so you can enjoy beautiful Palolem beach and the surrounding beaches in your free time.
