If you want to experience luxury in a beautiful beachfront setting in Mandrem, then this is the place you should book. We booked this place for 8 days and had a fantastic work- vacation. The tasteful design in the hotel is completed with a large pool, patio and a lounge. We were very happy with our room which was a fantastic blend of modern and classical design. For food the lounge- Chia Lounge is an amazing beachfront restaurant with all sorts of delicacy. The staff is very helpful and everything looks clean and tidy.
Great staff and lovely setting. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and so were the drinks - I can recommend the cocktails. Nalanda helped us to book local tours and treatments. Would happily recommend it for solo or group travellers
We had a wonderful time at Nalanda Retreat. It is beautifully located directly at the amazing beach. We enjoyed the tasty breakfast and dinner with the great sea and beach view. We loved the delicious juices and healthy food options. The staff was really friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. A highlight for us was the daily yoga class with a wonderful teacher, truly an inspiration. We are so thankful we stayed here and had a wonderful time. We will be glad to be back!!
Last month hosted the retreat at Nalanda resort Situated in a near-perfect location - (High Paradise), known for its' high energy, the new Nalanda is a sight to behold, and the perfect place to lead a retreat and leave the modern world behind. The building is as extravagantly wonderful as it is architecturally perfect. Designed to complement the abundant surrounding nature, the main structures boldness and beauty makes you feel safe, at home, and like royalty all at once. The accommodation is equally as splendid, boutique, and nestled amidst the trees and wildlife.
I had an absolutely amazing experience here for a women only retreat I attended! The food was INCREDIBLE! As someone who requires gluten free, having delicious options and staff who really care to meet your needs just made all the difference. The staff truly went above and beyond, they are such wonderful people! I loved being able to eat and take in the the gorgeous beach view! The pool was also clean and so nice to swim in, and they have a great space for yoga or other activities. I loved the ambience of this place. The rooms are clean and comfortable! The ocean is in your front yard. Definitely recommend. I miss the food already.
Such an amazing place! The front door leads onto a little street with loads of shops. There is also a money exchange right next door! The back door opens out onto an amazing beach with plenty of sunloungers for relaxing after a Yoga class which there is plenty of classes to choose from! The food is gorgeous with loads of different options & loads to eat - you will never be hungry! A trip to Goa and a stay in Nalanda is a definite must!
