  • Description


    Hi my name is Yasho. I run an Eco-resort in Palolem, South Goa. It is a coconut grove transformed into a tropical jungle over the last 25 years only 5 mins walk from Palolem and Patnem beach.
    We believe in sustainability, that humans and nature can live together harmoniously, creating as little waste as possible and helping mother earth survive these times.
    We compost all our kitchen waste, recycle whatever we can and we have a bio-gas unit.

    We have 22 cabanas and a hostel all built from locally sourced organic material. A restaurant situated under swaying parachutes and the kitchen serves healthy organic vegan and vegetarian food and live music and jams once or twice a week and a Sunday Market. An ayurvedic center that provides massages and an Ayurvedic doctor for any ailments or injuries. There are hatha yoga classes and meditation every day. We have 3 spaces that are used for workshops, yoga, salsa etc.
    Recently we have also been working with an international circus school that host circus retreats and shows between the months of Dec-Feb.

    We require volunteers to be hard-working and clean. We are not providing a free holiday but a cultural exchange.
