Very nice place with friendly staff. Breakfast is super but after a couple of days you probably get fed up with it as well. However, I wouldn't book this place online as it is quite overpriced and you would get a cheaper rate there too. All in all the stay was good though.

We stayed her as the last leg of our vacation. This was to be our 5 day chill out after dashing all around the Golden Triangle. Well it certainly was that!! it was amazing. Away from the world in our little coconut. The breakfast was simple, tasty but a real experience. Staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us,... More

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed your little coconut pod :-) The tip about scooters is a good one, it really is the best way to get around and experience north Goa. More

Been here many times and still love it - unusual, comfortable domes, good food and located on the best bit of Ashwem beach. Service was a bit off this year - slow and not overly friendly. Staff on reception could do with a bit of training too - efficient but no charm. A simple "welcome back" or "how was your... More

Hi thanks for the review. We'll take this up with the front of house staff. If anything our staff tend to be shy, they are all young and English is their 3rd language. If we had known you were a returning guest then I'm sure you would have been welcomed back but they would not have recognised you otherwise. Service... More

I have been to Yab Yum 3 times over the years, and have enjoyed it as an adventure/chilled holiday. With all its nature aspects – frogs in the toilets, scorpions in the room (that are not dangerous – my husband got stung by one so we know), coconuts falling from trees, spiders. All these things made it interesting and not... More

In all the years we have been running Yab Yum, this is actually the first time we have had our staff specifically request for a guest NOT TO BE ALLOWED TO RETURN. We eventually sent our manager's list of complaints to this person and her response was to accuse us of being anti-semitic (!) - it's notable that this is... More

I will just echo others' comments and repeat how much we enjoyed our stay at this resort. The service was excellent, the environment lush, soft and soothing and the morning breakfasts were delicuous. We also thoroughly enjoyed the beach, which was a lot quieter than others nearby. In fact, we enjoyed this place so much that, in the three days... More

We had a wonderful stay at Yab Yum in a Standard Dome (which was much better than 'standard' in my book!) The beautiful, leafy surrounds could be enjoyed from the comfort of the hammock outside the dome and the service is excellent. The breakfasts each morning were scrumptious, and we loved that we could order lunch and have it brought... More

We spent a really lovely week here October / November 2014 staying in a family dome on the beach side of the property.
