For $170AUD a night for a large family bungalow we had high expectations. This not a terrible place to stay but it does not match the price. We never felt welcomed when we checked in and throughout our stay this was consistent with the staff (apart from the cleaners) not appearing very happy or overly friendly. The room. The bush...

When we arrived at Yab Yum, tired after a long journey from the UK, we were blown away by the beauty and serenity of the resort. It is really stunning. The domes are full of charm and rustic whilst still being comfortable. Inevitably, being on the beach and surrounded by vegetation, you are going to have little visitors but we...

Wonderful place with pods hidden in a palm tree garden surrounded by the noise of breaking waves. We booked the family dome offering lots of space. Yes, it is made of natural products so close to nature. Besides a daily visitor (little frog) nothing to complain but if you like fancy hotels this is not your place. We loved it...

We are a family of 5 (three kids aged 10, 11, and 13). Because of fantastic trip advisor ratings, we decided to reserve 2 dome rooms for our first Goa vacation. While the place looks charming at first and the people who work here are very kind, the dome rooms smell, leak when it rains, and--we learned on our last...

I was there last October and am planning a return trip this upcoming February. Generally I dont like to visit/stay in the same place twice, as I like to try new things, but wanting some beach down-time, and after researching tons of other places and resorts, I decided to go back to Yab Yum since the entire experience was so...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
