The retreat is plastic straw-free – and they also provide guests with reusable bags to take shopping at the local market, to reduce the use of plastic bags. There are no plastic bottles on-site, with only glass bottles used in the bar – and guests are encouraged to bring their own reusable bottles to fill with free mineral water, available throughout the hotel.

Sian RTripAdvisor

“Whether you´re into yoga or not, Palm Forest is the perfect holiday retreat. The beds are so comfy, and the rooms are fresh and clean. The breakfast is healthy and by far the most tasty we had in Goa. We immediately felt like home, and our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer.”

Cath BTripAdvisor

“Just stayed for 3 nights at this new beautiful resort. It is located steps from the beach and has very relaxing vibes. The cottages are very well appointed with indoor and outdoor showers. We had a traditional massage which was divine. Palm Forest is definitely a place not to miss!
