Our eco-friendly, solar-heated therapy pool
The pool at Fluid symmetry has been designed and built to enhance your comfort and have minimum impact on its environment. We have used green technology where we can . The pool is heated to 35 degrees celsius, most of this heat come from low energy solar mats hidden away on the roof of nearby huts and on cold nights a low energy heat pump keeps the water warm. The pool is insulated and covered at night to minimise heat loss. A combination of UV lamps and hydroxyl gas are used to keep the pool water clean, safe and sparkling; the added benefit is that the waste water can then be re-used for the plants.
The shower in our changing rooms is also solar heated . All efforts have been taken to minimise our carbon footprint and to keep our installations as green as possible.
The Agonda & Goa area…
Places to eat, stay and explore nearby
“Karma Khetna” is a mere 5 minutes walk away from the pool heading south down the valley. They have an organic spice farm, a restaurant, a cafe, yoga and accommodation available. We can warmly recommend it.
Agonda beach is a 5 minutes drive or a 20 mins walk from the pool. It is a beautiful 3.25km long, fine golden sand beach. Agonda’s beach is wide, quiet and picturesque. There is a “turtle centre” at the north-end of the beach protecting precious Olive Ridley eggs. The water is mostly still and ideal for swimming in the early morning before the wind picks-up. The beach is also becoming a destination for people looking to learn surfing as there is a small beach break at the south-end of the beach. Volleyball ,frisbee and Acro-yoga are popular activities carried out around sunset…
You can watch the fishermen bring in their catch, it is also possible to hire boats and skippers for Dolphin watching trips and excursions up and down the coast. You can also visit the many bays and river ways near by. You can go horse-riding on the beach as there is a ranch nearby. One of my favourite activity however is watching the cows being fed at sunset… The beach restaurants save the organic waste from the days cooking for the cows to eat and it is quite a spectacle to watch.
The main road
The road running behind the beach offers a little bit of everything . The first point of reference when you reach the road is the Church which is situated exactly in the middle of the beach. The road stretches for 1.5 km in each direction. Food wise, all tastes and budgets are catered for from cheaper tasty Indian cuisine to more costly gourmet offerings. There are many shops selling local fruit & veg. There is also a mini market selling imported goods if you are missing your peanut butter and marmite.
Live music is popular in the evenings as the area attracts musicians from all around the world.
There is wifi available at most beach hut resorts plus a hand full of Internet cafe scattered along the beach road. There are a doctor and a dentist in Agonda but come well stocked with first aid supplies as there is still no pharmacy, the nearest one being in Chaudi, 20 mins drive away ($4 by taxi).
Most resorts will have a friendly taxi or rickshaw driver to recommend but generally, taxis and rickshaws are parked outside of the church. There is also an ATM opposite the church and most restaurants and resorts accept debit and credit cards.
Accommodation ranges from $5/night for a basic bamboo hut up to $190 for you tropical paradise room on the sea with jacuzzi… so there is plenty of choice to suit your tastes and budget.
“Jardim A Mar” offers good mid range rooms starting form $35/night . This resort is situated in the middle of the beach
At the far north end of the beach, at “Sonho Do Mar” you can find good basic rooms from $10/night & sea facing luxury cottages starting at $50/night.
