This is a Fabulous place to Live in. We were there last week & it was a superb experience. As it is off-season mostly everything around it is very quiet. There is some magic at the Banyan Soul it's just the way it has been done up. Kudos to the owners for keeping it simple yet efficient. Must visit if...

When we did book this hotel, we weren't expecting too much! we got a good deal for 6 nights during the peak time of December. But indeed it was a steal.

Pros - Excellent location: super close to Anjuna Beach + German Bakery. We also tried breakfast at Michèle's Garden Guesthouse and Artjuna nearby! - Very quiet and away from the madness - Lovely library tucked away under a giant banyan tree - Staff were helpful Cons - One of the bathroom's taps ran non stop which was very annoying. There...

Plenty of potential but is very unloved. We had two rooms in our party and we had to move as the noise of the a/c on the roof was loud. The bathrooms really needed work with dripping taps a particular problem. The internal windows could have done with a wash. The bedrooms were clean and functional. It needs love!

Stayed for 2 days here. Rooms are clean, not very spacious but definitely liveable. Bathrooms are clean and modern. Rooms are surrounded by a lawn which is lit in the nights and is pretty to look at.

We were a group of 5 who visited Banyan Soul December 2015. A very tidy and comfortable abode. The owner is very hospitable. It shares its boundary with German bakery which was perfect for breakfast or brunch.
