We stayed at Yab Yum just out of season and found it a stunning tropical oasis after the chaos of Mumbai! The location is handy, a quick ten mins scooter ride to the beach and nearby villages. The staff here are an absolute credit to Yab Yum- amazing people ready to do anything for you- really friendly and helpful and definitely made the visit a real pleasure.
The resort itself is hidden away in lush foliage and where we stayed next to the temple house we had wonderful views for miles. The accommodation is head and shoulders above most we stayed in in Goa, it has a simple boho atmosphere with mosquito net canopies and a delicious fresh breakfast of fruit/eggs in the morning. The only negative would be that at that time of year the heat was pretty stifling and air conditioning would definitely have been a bonus- the fans just weren't enough in the humid temperatures.
Overall a great place to stay in northern Goa, lovely rural tucked away resort with wonderful staff.
