About KYO SPACES

The word Kyo, in essence, means vibration.

Centred around the values and ethics of permaculture - people care, earth care and fair shares, our mission is to create or curate safe spaces where you can seed ideas and nurture them to grow.

Blue Lotus by Kyo Spaces is our first co-living and co-working space, a heritage villa in the Goan village of Ucassaim made for work, play and rest surrounded by likeminded people.

We also host retreats where wellness, healing, learning and community intersect.

Through co-living, co-working and co-creation experiences and spaces, both transient and permanent, on or off the grid, we are building a vibrant, high vibration community.
