The best places to Detox. Retox. Repeat. in Goa

Photo Diary The best places to Detox. Retox. Repeat. in Goa

Life is all about balance, but all work and no play is no way to live – especially when traveling. That’s why Sucheta Pal, W Goa‘s fitness ambassador who also loves to party, finds time to detox, retox, and repeat, keeping up the energy from day to night. We followed Sucheta on a day through her city, from work out to chill out, racking up the best places to hangout in Goa.

8 am: run & A healthy Breakfast

It’s one life and one body and no excuses. Gift yourself 30 minutes of exercise each day. Something that you love to do. I love running on Ashvem beach. It’s a great way to get the day going right. Then, on to the signature Quinoa salad at The Kitchen Table at W Goa to keep me fueled.

11 am: Swim, Sun, Sweat

Whether it’s Zumba, working out at the gym, or swimming in the pool, I love to sweat. I discovered Zumba in 2009 back in the United States on a cold winter morning and I was intrigued by this amazing but slightly overweight instructor, who didn’t care about size at all, yet was inspiring 80 of us to sweat, dance and get fit with her. I knew that day that this type of instructor was who I wish to be: a mentor and a coach – a teacher in the truest sense.

2 pm: Retox & Shop

A whey protein shake is what I dig post workout and some time to relax. I love Sacha’s Shop for all the right fashion and accessories, a perfect place to stock up on style before a night out. Two things you need when you’re exploring Goa: A pair of shades and an appetite.

4 pm: Cocktail Hour

Black Sheep Bistro for a refreshing cocktail. My go-to cocktail has to be a sangria. It’s my little cheat drink. A glass of wine with fruit is supposed to be healthy, right?

8 pm: Night Out on the Water

The perfect end to a day of detoxing and retoxing is a beautiful sunset boat ride on a local boat just around Morjim Beach before hitting the town. My favorite thing about Goa nightlife is meeting absolute strangers who become lifelong friends.
