Yab Yum was the perfect place to end our trip to India as it was relaxing and had all the amenities you'd expect from a holiday resort, without it feeling like one. Right on the beach, a 30 second walk from our cottage, Yab Yum is in a beautiful setting and is close to walks along Goa's beaches and to... More

I really enjoyed this place. So laid back, friendly and earthy. Great yoga classes and food was really good. I also had an excellent ayurvedic massage on site. Comments on slow service are fair but I say it's nice to slow things down a bit. Watch out for the red earth on your white clothes. In fact perhaps best not... More

If you want to chill out in india, Goa is definitely the place where to be. But finding the right tune for your family in a cool, typical, calm and close to the beach is like a jigsaw. The Yabyum is the right target! Very cool and warm welcome, you are in a middle of a nature heaven. You can... More

I fell in love with Yab Yum, its location and the close to nature feels. The beach which is like twenty steps away feels almost like a private beach and its beautiful with sun beds and towels and nobody disturbing you. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and so are the domes. Decision should be based on the need for... More

Really amazing place, hard find and hard to not come back. When you are inside the property it doesn't feel like you are in Goa at all until you walk out to the beach and beach is very private and well maintained.

Great place with lovely staff! Before we came to Yab Yum we were a little apprehensive whether we've gone too close to nature, as some of the other reviews have suggested. However, we were pleasantly surprised at how luxurious this Eco resort truly is. Everything from a very cute hut to the beach itself was magical. Truly a little piece... More

I have loved Yab Yum since I first stepped out of the taxi outside the gates one November afternoon in 2012. We have been three times and go there again in a few days. I thought the place was already perfected the first time, but to my surprise some new improvements have been made for every visit; more comfortable pillows,... More

Stayed here for my sisters wedding. The grounds are stunning, with the gardens bursting with beautiful plants & flowers. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The food was superb, especially the local cuisine menu specials every evening. Right off the very beautiful Ashvem Beach too!

We have visited YabYum many times over the past 5 years. It never fails to disappoint. Firstly, it is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of India. Miles of glorious clean sand stretch in both directions from the hotel. You can stay here for weeks, eat in or out every night and never wear shoes once... More

Summary: Wonderful service, location, accommodation, and value. A totally unique experience. Absolutely a must if you're traveling to Goa. A friend and I took a quick weekend trip to Goa with the goal of relaxing in a fun setting, and Yab Yum delivered. We stayed in a pod, which was very comfortable with a painted cement base and braided thatch... More
