We stayed here for 4 nights last week. A lovely spot on the edge of the beach. They have a choice of thatched huts or bungalows. We settled for a bungalow and enjoyed the luxury of air conditioning in the very hot weather. Lovely view of the beach from our bungalow no 01. So we also had a little breeze...

This was the most expensive place we stayed in India over 3 weeks and was probably the least good value for money. For a start it is quite difficult to find – you need to look for the Palm Grove sign on the road, turn off there and then you will see a very discreet sign on the gates on...

My family of 4 stayed here recently. We rented side-by - side huts. It was an extra-ordinary experience for the children and us. We loved the quiet beach. The resort offers a nice restaurant beach side - we ate their for lunch for everyday. Breakfast was served everyday at our hut, which was a very nice touch. A short walk...

We stayed in a standard pod which was both spacious and comfortable. Everything was excellent the beach white sand and quiet.However our sleep was disturbed for the two nights we were there by loud thumping music.Shame as it is not the fault of the resort.

The beauty of Yab Yum is the unique style of accommodation in just the right setting. As each pod is surrounded by sand and plants it is hardly surprising if a few creatures come visiting but none of them are too big or scary. We could hear noises over the roof at night but it is just the squirrels -...

Such a gorgeous place, set in lush jungle right on the beach. Our room was excellent, staff friendly and the place is really well run. Whole thing ruined by 2 sleepless nights due to all night parties and very loud music that starts around midnight and is still going at 9am while we are eating breakfast. Such a shame and...

Booked 2 nights at yabyum but didn't want to leave, it's absolutely beautiful set in dense coconut trees and beautiful gardens, our hut was massive with a seating area, a huge bed, and a lovely shower room.

As part of a 16-day break, Yab Yums was booked fro 3 nights. We had been staying nr Candolim, where the beaches were no comparison. Coming to Ashvem beach was such a contrast, after our 1st day, we tried to change and book the rest of our stay here. But unfortunately for us, Tab Yums was totally full, from start,...
