We stayed at Yabyum for the first part of our Goa honeymoon, and now two months later we're still dreaming about it and how we can possibly get back there. We found it on i-escape and decided on a cottage with private balcony, and we were very happy with our discovery.
Everything throughout from the moment they picked us up at the airport was perfect.
Reaching the gates of Yabyum after a long trip and entering the beautiful grounds of the resort, you are already relaxed and have forgotten about wireless headaches and vibrating pockets.
Order their Thali for dinner, it changes daily and will be something to look forward to all day.
We planned on doing yoga and started out with a private lesson. We enjoyed it so much we ended up booking private lessons for the rest of our stay. It worked perfectly even though one of us was a beginner. We got so much out of it. Thank you Deepti! We still do our sun salutations.
To complete, we would go straight to Nina for the best massage you can imagine.
Everyday breakfast was brought to our serene little porch setting. We couldn't wait to get up for it. The omelete masala was so tasty and the homemade jam and fruit juice live large in memory, we could go on...
You will love this place if you are looking for a relaxed, stress-free holiday in unpretentiously stylish and comfortable settings.
We did. 100%.
Visit the enormous Banyan tree nearby. It's straight out of a dream.
