About the Host, Pam Paramjit
I was born and raised in the UK and moved to Goa in 2008. I came to India to full fill a dream of opening a yoga retreat. That's how Riverside Shakti retreat in Siolim was created.
I feel in love with Siolim the first time I visited and was blessed to find a spot on the river to create my retreat. I love to spend hours sitting by the river watching the world go by, it truly is a magical place.
I love to travel all over the world so my stunning Retreat comes up for rent through out the year.
I use my place to host yoga retreats as well as let it out as a whole for holiday rentals or to others that may want to host there own kind of retreat. It suitable for the peaceful chilled type, not a place to have rocking parties.. Riverside retreat promises to be a truly blissful experience for anyone that stays.
I also own a 2bk, Siolim sorova apartments which is a new development, a very well maintained society only 5 minutes walk from the chapora river and Siolim bridge. Great location to head north or south of Goa...kitted out with Fab India furniture,
