Bhakti Kutir


About This Center

Bhakti Kutir is located under a canopy of a two acre coconut grove with twenty two back-to-nature cabanas. No two cabanas are alike. Fashioned from local materials like rice straw, and bamboo, the cabanas are built to include trees, leaves, and to let you see the moon and star-filled skies. The living areas combine a rural feel with a surprising degree of comfort. Each room is equipped with mosquito net already in place. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are well ventalated but are also equipped with fans.

On the premisise is an Ayurvedic Spa run by Vijay Nambiar, qualified and experienced Ayurvedic doctor of Kerala. His staff is expert in their therapies, which are reasonably priced and accessible throughout the training.

Bhakti Kutir is located in a secluded forest just inside of the small village of Colomb, in between the unspoiled beaches of Palolem and Patnem. Palolem is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Goa. A natural bay surrounded by high headlands on either side has created a calm, idyllic setting frequented by a cosmopolitan mix of tourists, travellers, local and expats. Patnem is even more quiet and less developed than its neighboring beach, there are many options to accommodate all types of tourist needs. The nearest beach is within 5 minutes walking distance. Scooters can easily be rented for 200 – 300 rupees daily. There is a small but thriving town less than 3 kilometers away where you can buy or do everything that you need during your stay.

Canacona, the name of the entire area is located in South Goa, which is easily accessible to visitors coming from Dabolim, Goa's international airport at Vasco de Gama, and is connect by road and bus with Margo (to the north) and Karwar (to the south). Canacona is also on the Konkan Railway route.
