Just great! Service was brilliant, the staff were wonderful and breakfast was fanstastic! - It's a bit difficult to find (not all taxi drivers know where it is) - But this is definitely a bonus as you only get the best people here. Stay here if you are in Goa!

We were recommended Yab Yum (on the beach) but as we went in low season they were all closed so booked Jivana. It was lovely, the Garden House is perfect for 2 couples, lovely rooms, outdoor living etc. The breakfast included is awesome (especially the organic coffee)! Dinner is optional and yummy! Only thing is you need to hire scooters... More

We stayed at Yab Yum just out of season and found it a stunning tropical oasis after the chaos of Mumbai! The location is handy, a quick ten mins scooter ride to the beach and nearby villages. The staff here are an absolute credit to Yab Yum- amazing people ready to do anything for you- really friendly and helpful and... More

We were a group of seven and we stayed at the temple house. It is a beautiful, peaceful place! It was our own private house between a plantation. One thing to keep in mind is that there are lizards, frogs. A couple of people with us were uncomfortable because of that. The staff is very warm and they made us... More

We stayed for three nights at the Jivana Plantation before moving down to the Yab Yum Beach Resort. We were efficiently collected from the airport at 6am and delivered to the Plantation which is hidden away off a back street on a hillside. The Plantation is extremely quiet and is a mix of two person cottages and a few larger... More

We stayed at Yabyum for four nights after a hectic touring schedule around Rajasthan. Pick up from the airport although efficient caused some confusion as the guys with the placards were not Yabyum staff but locals who were harassing for inflated tips as usual. Airport transfer comfortable and friendly. The accommodation was pretty much as described and as shown on... More

This is the right place for relaxing away from everything. We stayed three nights in the garden house because the yabyum beach resort was fully booked. It has two rooms and a big open air bathroom. At night you hear all kind of sounds from the forest and lots of animals come close (mostly mosquitos). Although they dont have a... More
