“A little bit of Goan heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This is our second memorable stay in paradise! A little different as we stayed in a casinha vs the main house. The enthusiastic welcome from Mr Sethi, Karen and Matilda, who came with an enveloping hug, was heartwarming. Having the pool to ourselves was like being on a deserted island! Early morning walks on the far from crowded beach, food shacks within easy distanceand breakfasts of champions made our visit one for the books! The quiet ambience, beautifully appointed rooms, exquisite gardens, exotic flowers, the constant trickle of flowing water are sounds that permeate the conscious, leaving a sense of calm. This is the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and recall with much fondness!! Thanks to all the staff for making our holiday wonderful! Just one minor snag..the WIFI was intermittent., a necessity in today's age. A small bug in the larger picture. We shall definitely be back!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time out to review Aashyana Lakhanpal on TripAdvisor. You made our place sound so beautiful and spiritual with your descriptive words.

Wi-Fi does tend to be a little erratic in this area mainly due to the large number of trees around us. However, we are always looking for solutions and hopefully advances in technology will help us overcome this soon.

In the meantime, we were very happy to welcome you back and hope we get the opportunity again in the not too distant future.

I stayed there with my family and had the best experience.

It is so green and cool with trees around. There is some lighting need near pool and walkways if one has to visit the beach in night.

Excellent service from the staff and cooking was really nice.

Majestic huge old trees were a really treat for the kids.

It was lovely to have an open bathroom , my children aged 9 and 4 were surprised. We have stayed in 5 star hotels but my kids loved this very much.

Thank you for your recent review on TripAdvisor and your kind words.

It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay at one of our Casinhas and we are happy the boys loved the concept of an open bathroom.

As you know, we are looking into energy saving lighting for our walkways and your suggestions for this were very welcome indeed..

In the meantime, kind regards from the AL Team and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We stayed at Aashyana Lakhanpal, in Villa Venus the three bedroom villa, from 12 May 2014 to 16 May 2014. As far as Goa is concerned we go there at least twice a year, so we have stayed at a number of different kinds of places. Nearly all of them have been very good but this is the only one where we have wanted to stay at again and again.
Pradeep handled all the booking related queries and the booking itself. It was done very efficiently with no cause for complaint. The entire property is located in a very innocuous looking lane off the Calangute Candolim rd. Villa Venus, where we stayed is not located in the main property but about two minutes walk from it. The villa is beautiful, they have allowed the garden to grow wild which gives it a certain edgy charm. The pool is beautiful and the water is soft and chlorine-less. They do not offer either lunch or dinner but breakfast is included, and what breakfast. The breakfast is prepared fresh at the villa kitchen as you sit at the dinning table or outside by the pool. The constituents of the breakfast are simple, cereals, eggs to order, fruit, juice, tea and coffee but they are delicious and prepared with real warmth and care. We were looked after by Andre and Lucy. They prepared our breakfast and did the house-keeping. They are absolutely wonderful people. The Villa itself is huge with big bedrooms and a fantastic pool area. The beach is just 5 minutes away,it is a comparatively crowd free beach with clean beautiful sand. Part of the Candolim beach stretch. All the staff at the property, including the watchmen at Villa Venus were very courteous and helpful.
Generally when we visit Goa we like to travel all over, because there is so much to see in Goa. However, on this trip for the first time we ventured out only for a few hours a day. The Villa held us in thrall and forced us to relax and do nothing. This was a place where we felt completely at home. We will be definitely going there at least once a year for the foreseeable future. To be pampered and spoiled and to absolutely relax, this is the place to go to.

Heavenly place set in its own grounds with total privacy. clean beautiful swimming pool, perfect beach access with sunbeds to hire but not too crowded. The sweetest most attentive staff. Fantastic food. Lovely rooms: fans and a.c. Charming house-keeping staff. Wonderful garden. walking distance to shops. onsite massage. I have spent a couple of weeks there every year for ages and it reinvigorates as nowhere else.

Room Tip: you get what you pay for in that the expensive rooms are quiet and spacious. All rooms have ensuite...

A calm, tranquil oasis in a magnificent location. Aashyana Lakhanpal has it all! Lovely traditional rooms kept selflessly clean by the dedicated Matilda and her housekeeping staff. The food and service is second to none, with all tastes and desires catered for....the chef really is very good! The pools are huge, clean and safe. The gardeners work tirelessly to keep the grounds of Aashyana a delight to walk through, or just sit quietly in listening to the birds or the ocean. The property is private and hidden away but the beach with quaint bars and miles of sand is just a step away through the garden gate. Aashyana is quit, peaceful, private with great food, discrete staff and an owner who understands what people want from a luxury holiday in Goa. I will return time and again and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

A group of yoga people stayed in the casinhas. The accommodations are nice and clean. The yoga space is beautiful and a great place to practice. It also has a yoga wall for modifications. Definitely recommend this location for a yoga retreat. The property is beautifully landscaped and has paths throughout with direct access to the sea is quite lovely. The pool is in a serene setting and clean.The only reason I did not select excellent, is due to some limitations of access to the main property since we were staying in the casinhas.
