Location: The Portuguese developed such love for Goa, they stayed on for 450 years. That apart, Ashvem beach has it all… talcum-powder sand, clear blue waters and access to miles and miles of quiet, secluded shore.
Ambience: At the Aquatica you’ll live in close proximity to nature; ripe fruit hangs by your window, herbs grow in your verandah, areca nut trees line your path and a soft breeze stops obligingly to caress you.
Detox: The yoga experts (from Sushumna) have now set up camp at Aquatica and can do much to restore your mind-body balance. Add to that authentic Ayurveda treatments, and you’ll feel like never before.
Experience rustic India (with modern comforts): At the secluded end of the property, eleven cottages arc a cluster of chickoo trees, plantains and palms. A plunge pool sits invitingly in the centre. Each cottage has modern bathrooms and air-conditioners that lie nonchalantly with rustic thatched roofing, raw wood accessories, bamboo railings and stone floors. Yes, life is full of contradictions; but in the spirit of yoga - let's not stop to judge.
Fooding is an art of cooking and eating. The word fooding is a contraction of the words "food" and "feeling". The goal of fooding is getting rid of the traditional rules of cooking to yield the possibility for the chef cooks to free themselves in modernity and even in tradition. It's the art of cooking and eating in certain states of mind: appetite for novelty, rejection of annoyance, desire for sincerity, fun and, overall, eating with the times.” The restaurant: Eating with the times: that is what it is all about at Aquatica. The restaurant, located in the middle of the resort’s garden, and also called Aquatica, is not an exception to the rule: set up two years ago, it was taken over by French chef Gregory Bazire one year ago and is now in perfect harmony with the resort’s philosophy. Here, food is about freshness, wellness and pleasure. The products we use are mostly locally-grown and organic, respecting nature and your health at the same time. The restaurant is absolutely outward-looking: no walls, a typical Goan-styled natural roof, much vegetation and light. You will be likely to enjoy your meal in a picturesque environment, either eating on the main platform or choosing the small sofa-furnished ones even closer to the nature. The restaurant can seat 35 guests. It is open everyday and all day long.
