We loved it when we got there but that changed pretty quick. We had booked for 5 nights and left after the first night. The good stuff: the place is right on the beach, quiet and serene we were in the family dome – nice large room Great mohitos The bad stuff: the rooms were very dark the food was... More

On price, simply not true: our drinks are in line with what everyone else charges. Of course if you stay in a bamboo hut things are cheaper than in a mid-scale hotel. Food is a matter of taste (literally), and we disagree with the comments. The crux of the matter: Very occasionally, a guest arrives and realises they made a... More

It's located in Ashvem beach, my favorite part of Goa. The huts are large and right in front of the beach, so you could hear the waves while sleeping can't ask for a better sleep. The whole resort has I think 14 huts surrounded by palm trees. You will get used to the crows eventually they will be after you... More

The place is really nice: surrounded by palm trees, in front of a wild beach, with very few restaurants. The resort is calm: no music, no noise... We spent the 1st night in a standard dome which was quite large and really nice. Then we moved to the double suite Pod with two other friends: this one was not so... More

We stayed in lovely Yab Yum for 1 week and it was a totally relaxing time. We are usually city travellers and therefore staying in an almost rural resort is a completely new experience for us. The resort is being well kept and the restaurant offers lovely food. However, there could be some things the resort could do to legitimate... More

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed it here! On price: this has been a common theme for all places in Goa around our kind of standard, there really is a disconnect between westerners thinking India is dirt-cheap (food still pretty much is) but with inflation at about 9% this is generally not the case any more.

Ecologically sustainable tourism is very important to me and my wife, and Yab Yum provided just that. We stayed for four nights, in cute huts inspired from Star Wars planets (guess which one). The staff was very friendly and complaint. Clean drinking water was available all the time, which was great. Wifi worked, a bit slow but worked. Restaurant/bar/lounge area... More

Wonderful location in the middle of Ashwem and Arambol beach..Clean , peaceful environment with comfortable, large, airy huts. We stayed 5 days;2 couples and one single at the beginning of the season : there were some small things to be repaired inside the domes but when we informed them, they immediately fixed. They were very sensitive for our comfort. They... More

Hi Ayse, thanks for your review - we're glad you had a good time! A few things have been picked up on around the time of your visit and now corrected as the season picks up pace: Wi-Fi - it's pretty good now, in fact it's faster than my home connection (!!), though at times we do lose service for...

This is the second time I have been to YabYum, and I have also stayed an adjacent properties on the same beach. Yabyum is approx 1 hour's drive north along the coast from the Goa airport.

Good resort. Lovely huts. Staff very helpful with on site needs and going off site. Breakfast was good but other food needs taking up a notch to keep customers from wandering along to other eateries on the beach. Overall a good experience.

When we reached this place out hearts got happy. It is a beautiful place, well taken care of, the resort looks like a green oasis and jungle with super cute huts. We stayed in the Honey Pod and our friends had a Suite Pod. The location is practically on the beach, the sound of the waves is the best you... More

Hi Juan, thanks for your review. We agree that service, especially at the beginning of the season, is not very speedy - we're always trying to correct it but it seems to be the Goan air that causes this as much as anything else, frankly, everything moves slowly here and that can admittedly be frustrating for some people. We actually... More

Looking for paradise in Goa? Look no further - but get in early to ensure they aren't booked! Yab Yum has received deservedly high reviews on TA and we weren't disappointed. This is in a beautiful part of North Goa, just south of Arambol. The beach is lovely and secluded; devoid of the noisy bar scene, package tour groups and... More
