We had a wonderful time at Yab Yum! Goa is fantastic but staying at Yab Yum is an experience on its own! The yoga teacher there is sweet and wonderful putting you at ease and is always trying her very best to make her classes suitable for beginners and advanced participants! We also loved the food which is inexpensive and... More

We loved walking from our cottage to the beach, to an excellent dinner down the beach, without ever having to put on shoes. Super sweet, helpful staff, good food (loved having breakfast brought to our "porch" each morning), nice yoga classes in a the pretty on-site shala, wonderful bar overlooking the ocean, nice loungers and umbrellas on the beach.The bathrooms...

The hotel is located right on the Ashwem beach. Though the property isn't huge it offers morning yoga, massages & most importantly a clean & quiet beach. We stayed in domes called "pods", which are fantastic in themselves, but also include a private garden with table, chairs, hammock & ample privacy. The staff is polite & helpful, but could be...

Yab Yum is a small but exclusive resort on the northern part of Aswem beach. As the owners do not place any signs,roadside or beachside,it is a little hard to find 1st time. The resort has about 20 places to stay which look like "desert igloos from a space movie" I have never been at a more unique or tranquil... More

We spent just over a week at Yab Yum in February, and it was the best holiday ever. We stayed in one of the 'pods', which are fabulous in themselves, but also include a private garden area with a table, chairs and hammock. Being served breakfast outside in the garden whilst watching the two nesting sea eagles (directly above us!)... More

Our family had a wonderful stay - very relaxing. We loved the beach and spent hours in the waves. The domes were super fun to stay in - our family loved them. It was very hot but there are openings for the air to flow through. Mosquito nets helped us sleep well at night. Breakfast was good food brought to... More

This is great accommodation but there is little that I could say was 'Eco' about it. Yes they filled my water bottle from an electronic water filter but beyond that ........Ummm! The location is great, right on Ashvem beach and a quiet part of it as well. The 'Pods' really are attractive, well proportioned and delightfully located. Breakfast was served... More

We spent my birthday at Yab Yum Yum which was recommended by a friend. On arrival we were enthralled with the space. Unique for a beach property the space was magical. Lovely concept with a beach thrown in which was divine. What was disappointing is the food, and the inefficiency with which the whole food and beverage area is run.... More

yabyumowner, Owner at Yab Yum Resort, responded to this review

Hi Indu, thanks for your honest review. We sympathise and agree that our service can be rather Goan i.e. overly laidback at times, and this is largely because of our rural location, which means we employ mostly young locals from the nearby villages. However, housekeeping should be pretty faultless, we're not sure what the expectation was but housekeeping's job is... More

We stayed at Yab Yum over Diwali and it was a lovely break from the big city. We travelled with our family of 4 and stayed in the large family dome which was more than adequate for all of us. The domes are pretty basic but very comfortable. The beach in front of the property is great and when it... More
