I spent a week here with family and friends. The huts were comfortable and roomy. There was no AC but the fans provided enough air flow to keep things cool. It is nicely located right on a great section of beach and within walking distance of plenty of restaurants. The food was excellent and each night the bar had a... More

We returned to YabYum this year and loved it. We stayed in a beachside honeypod with a seaview for breakfast. Huts are clean and atmospheric and set in the most amazing lush gardens, all very well maintained. Great fresh food. A very peaceful and tranquil spot, Lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea. The beach is fabulous and... More

AMAZING huts set in lush landscaped gardens. We stayed in the family pod in December 2013. Really enjoyed our time in Mandrem and at Yab Yum resort. The breakfast option is something i haven't come across before. You get a menu delivered to your door the night before, you tick boxes for the relevant items you want (i usually had... More

If, what you’re looking for are polished marble floors, fluffy bath towels and slick service, Yab Yum isn’t for you. If, however, you want to find a little gem of a hotel, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, on a beautiful, peaceful stretch of powder sand, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Yab Yum. It’s set in the north of Goa... More

Yabyum is a great retreat from the world. Right on the beach; excellent locally sourced food; and away from the commercial development of other beaches. The huts are perfect for families with kids who like to be with their parents. Ashvem is the nicest, quietest beech of this northern stretch with enough great food options and some nice boutiques, but... More

The resort is absolutly beautiful with direct beach access. The beach itself is clean, long and wide. You can walk for miles. There are many nice restaurants on the beach, outside of Yab Yum which offer great dishes. Small "supermarkets" are in walkable distance, maybe five minutes along the road. We really enjoyed our stay.

I loved everything about this place, from the hobbit huts, the nightly frogs in the bathroom, the food (the thali, which changes each day, is excellent) and the amazing massages! The standard pods were booked up, so we (a couple) stayed in a family pod. It was a great size and done out beautifully. Breakfast was delivered each morning outside... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of December (3 in standard dome, 2 in Honeypod2). The photographs on the website don't do the grounds justice! It is so green and tropical, it really does feel like paradise. The food is excellent. The staff were good but I think do struggle with understanding English. We went on various... More

Hi, thanks for the great review! Some good points are raised: Just to clarify - the little feet that scuttle across the tops of the honey pods definitely belong to little squirrels - technically we think that is a 'rodent', but definitely the more friendly type!! We have a cat which does its bit in keeping them away but they... More

The setting is idyllic,staff great,the food is really, really good and so are the cocktails. Best accomodation is 'Honey Pod 2' where we stayed which is right by the beach and they serve your fantastic breakfast at your own table looking over the beautiful beach. Other accomodation looks fine but just doesn't have such good sea views. My wife found... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time at Yab Yum. The yurts are large, airy and clean and the resort is next to a stunning, quiet beach with amenities nearby. The food in the restaurant was the best we found in the area and the cocktails were also great! The yoga class was relaxing and the staff were always... More
