Welcome to Govardhan Ecovillage

Govardhan Ecovillage is a spiritual oasis that illustrates the principles of ‘Simple Living & High Thinking’ – which is not just a principle but a way of life that has to be adapted in the current fast moving world to connect with our roots again to experience not just happiness but sheer bliss. We believe in the concept of service and preserving our mother earth for a better living for all.

The Ecovillage is situated amidst the lush green Sahyadri mountain ranges in Wada district, just a two hour drive from Mumbai. You can take a Yoga or Ayurveda course for a cause, contributing to our numerous initiatives in tribal welfare, women empowerment and supporting the community of kids in Lady Northcote Hindu Orphanage within our campus. The Ecovillage is equipped with large yoga studios, 94 eco stay rooms, swimming pool, Kerala Ayurveda Center, beautiful shelters for our cows and horses, and many more amenities ensuring a comfortable stay.

Govardhan Ecovillage is a model farm community and a wellness retreat that signifies the importance of living in harmony amongst ourselves and the nature. Being a community that adheres to the rules laid down by the nature, we thoroughly believe in vegetarianism and offer pure sattvic vegetarian food (no onion & garlic) to our beloved devotees and visitors. Being a ‘Pure Vegetarian Resort’ is one of our many USPs, which we take pride in. Today, more people have decided to go vegan for ethical, environmental or health reasons and adhering to this notion of being an animal and nature friendly retreat, we at Govardhan Ecovillage promote a sattvic vegetarian diet that not only fulfils your physical needs but also enlightens the sanctity within yourself.

The future of India, World and humanity rests on the shoulders of such initiatives.”
