The Banyan Soul is a very charming and comfortable small boutique hotel, stylish, quite and very well kept, with a very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are all very tastefully furnished that you feel very comfortable. I think its the best you can in the anjuna area for what you pay. i go back there for sure. Heinz Ecker,... More

The good news: the staff is friendly and helpful. The bad news: due to poor design, the rooms are very liable to intimate (think bedroom- and bathroom) noises from your neighboring guests. More bad news: there is no pool, there is no bar, no restaurant, no minibar in your room, even no reception area (unless you want to call the... More

With much being spoken about Goa losing its charm and blah...BANYAN SOUL@Anjuna in North Goa (they are situated right behind the German Bakery and a 10 min walk from the famous Flea market) is just the place that defies all of that. A charming place with 12 rooms, situated in between what feels like an oasis (yes you can spot... More

Staying at The Banyan Soul at Anjuna, North Goa, had been a wonderful and amazing experience for me and my hubby. We visited at the end of the tourist season and the prices of the room offered to us had been quite reasonable. An unconditional retreat from the daily discord and uproar of present life. Stayed there for 6 days.... More

There is not much to add to these reviews other than to repeat the praise. In Lonely Planet The Banyan Soul was described as a 'slinky new property' and it is almost a perfect summing up of this natty little hotel. I stayed for 10 days initially and have returned twice. It's a gem. It is clean. It is quiet.... More

I was extremely overwhelmed with their service and the way they take care of almost every silly problem of yours. Ravi was really superb. Anjuna is one of the... More

The Banyan Soul is a fantastic place to stay on a visit to Goa. It offers serenity in abundance. The rooms are reasonably spacious and very clean. The entire place as such is maintained very well. It is perfect for people who look to explore Goa for most of their time there and only return to the room to ultimately... More
