About Us

img_4183z????? ????? – Aranya – in Sanskrit ‘the Forest’ has as its objective to host creative people including writers, artists, healers, therapists, teachers, poets but also engage our community and underprivileged and talented people by offering them a space in which to be inspired.

We also offer the property for rental to teachers – including Yoga teachers, and groups that follow every discipline that aims at their personal development. We also offer the property for rental to groups of friends at times we do have the availabilty, to help defray our expenses.

Wherever you are from, creative people and groups are invited to participate in our three week retreats offered at low prices. Our property is set in a private forest estate, set high in the hills above the Northern Goa coast. Spectacular views out to the ocean, greenery and a natural habitat will only help in giving you the inspiration you need for your work.

We have 16 rooms that can host up to 40 people at any time. THere is a great teak deck for outdoor work and a beautiful infinity pool to cool off on those hot days!

Feel at home and feel inspired by India at Aranya Retreat. We hope it will allow you the tranquility to develop and to create.

We are positive that despite a growing globalization, there is growing consciousness of togetherness or the oneness. Art and writing is one language that can help bridge gaps where politicians and CEOs fail us. Young artists are probably the most cleanest medium through which to do this.

Please check of page of Events to see which residences are on offer. Where we are not offering residencies, or where the Retreat is not taken out by groups, you are welcome to rent individual villas or the entire property.
