Anahata is an eco-resort located on a secluded stretch on one of the finest beaches in Goa, in Ashvem. Under the shade of towering palm trees, this retreat, replete with wooden huts, cottages, an all day cafe and wellness activities, invites guests to engage with nature while soaking in Goa's beachside charm.


'Anahata' in Sanskrit refers to the 'heart chakra' signifying an unchanged state of being. This eco-resort was created under the same guiding principle, extending the concept to experiencing a space in its most natural form.

Spread across a lush tropical palm grove on Ashwem beach, Anahata is a haven for beach lovers. Walk down a small flight of stairs to the pristine beach in front where you can laze on deck chairs with feet in the sand or contentedly sway in one of the hammocks available for your enjoyment. 

Wake up early mornings to the sounds of birds chirping and to the soothing sound of waves, or if you are lucky, to the sight of dolphins from the privacy of your nest private on the beach.From the gorgeous accommodations, the holistic therapies and classes, or its gastronomic offering, Anahata caters to everyone's fancy.


Anahata is an elegant retreat that provides charming, chic, well-appointed accommodations, with an offering of huts and cottages, each fitted with every important mod-con.

The property offers fifteen rooms between four categories. Every room is fully loaded with comfortable beds, either king size or double, with high quality Indian cotton sheets, fluffy down pillows, walk-in closets or cupboards, private bathrooms with rain shower, luscious custom bath amenities and luxurious bathrobes. Each room is also equipped with an in-room safe and wi-fi access. Standing fans are provided for all rooms, except for the higher-range sea view suites which offer air conditioning.

The spacious cottages are designed in an unique octagonal shape, while the palm-thatched mango wood cabins stand on stilts with a high ceiling for cross ventilation. Every room offers a private balcony with lounge furniture, ideal to enjoy Goa's magical sunset.

These are the top tier rooms with unobstructed sea views, that can even enjoyed from the comforts of your bed.

Designed in the characteristic Goan Portuguese style , these suites offer private verandas with comfortable lounge furniture, where guests can soak in the beach view. The suites are located at the back of the property, and overlook the resort while offering complete privacy. 

This group of cottages sit slightly away from the beachfront, in a row behind the Beach Front Cottages.

The Garden Cottages are located a step away from the beach in the middle of a tropical beach garden, located in front of the Sea View Suites.


L'Atelier is an all day cafe at Anahata retreat, serving global gourmet food. This gem on Ashvem beach is set amidst a tropical garden. Minimal and raw wood furniture punctuate the beachside alfresco dining area that also houses an open kitchen. The highlight is the private dining area that overlooks the Arabian Sea on an elevated deck, decked out in soothing turquoise accents on an otherwise white theme.

The kitchen dishes out flavours from around the world sits and sits below the wooden deck. The tantalising menu is carefully designed to take guests on a culinary journey set amidst a stunning ambiance. They serve a stunning breakfast spread, wood fired pizzas, gourmet burgers, Cubanos, seafood and meat grills with local and international flavours. Meanwhile, the bar whips up some high spirited cocktails, fresh juices, smoothies and shakes. Beach revellers can choose to grab a bite on the go from the take out window counter.

Anahata retreat in Goa was set up by Angela & Rishal Sawhney, who have lived in Goa for over well over a decade. This is the new avatar of the property earlier known as Yoga Gypsys. Enticed by the beach life in Ashvem, the couple have moved away from their frenzied corporate lives to become dedicated hosts of Anahata.
