and the Zuvari rivers. An erstwhile Portuguese territory, today Goa is melting
pot of cultures with its allure lying in the clean beaches and refreshing
How to get there?
Goa lies 400 km south of Mumbai, which is a formidable but possibly enjoyable
12-hour long drive. If you come by bus, the Margao bus station lies about
20 minutes away from the bungalow. The Dabolim airport in Goa is the most
popular way to travel to the state, with both North and South Goa properties
reachable in about an hour’s drive. Cabs are easily available from the airport.
If you wish to arrive by train, Vasco Da Gama station is the nearest railway
station and is an hour away from the Retreat. If you are having trouble arranging
your last mile arrival at the Retreat, do get in touch with us at
So, when do I get there and when do I leave?
Getting to Goa is relatively easy with its plethora of connectivity options.
You should arrive by lunch on the 6th of March 2022. You can settle in at
the property, have a meal with your co-attendees and get to know the facilitators.
The kickoff session will be at 5pm on the 6th of March. The Retreat will
be conducted from 7th to 11th March and you should plan to leave for
your destination after lunch on the 11th.
How many participants will there be in all?
14 at the maximum, on a twin sharing basis. The idea is to create an
intimate group of people who are serious about their creative transformation
and can be cheerleaders for each other’s creative journey. We also ensure that
we have a diverse and varied lot across creative domains and experience levels
so that when the journeys intersect, there are enough experiences and stories
to take solace in.

Portuguese Bungalow located in the heart of solitude rich South Goa.
Featuring a pool, a lush orchard and private gardens, the bungalow offers
spacious rooms that you and a fellow attendee will share. At the Retreat,
there are seven rooms with double occupancy, which means there will be
