About Yab Yum Resort
Yab Yum Resort is situated in northern Goa at the edge of the tranquil coastal fishing village of Ashwem, which nestles half way between the villages of Morjim to the north and Mandrem to the south.
Hidden away in a peaceful and quiet setting on white sands amongst 8000 square metres of cool and shaded lush coconut and banana grove, Yab Yum sits directly behind the natural sand dunes of Ashwem beach. From here you can relax and watch the local fishermen bring in their daily catch from the Arabian Sea to a backdrop of beautiful sunsets.
Facilities & Amenities at Yab Yum Resort:Yoga:
We have a newly constructed and fully equipped Yoga shala. Iyenga yoga is taught by resident and international visiting teachers. For more information see Their Yoga & Treatments page.
Their treatment lodge allows us to offer traditional massage and therapies. Again for more info please click through to Their Yoga & Treatments page.
To cool off we have a dipping pool by Their beach gate, parents please make sure your kids are supervised!
Being parents Theirselves we are fully aware of how quickly kids get bored whilst parents are relaxing, because of this we have set up a full size teepee decorated with coloured flags and full of toys for them to play with (the kids not the parents!). We also have a shallow paddling pool for children to enjoy – please note that we do ask that parents supervise their children whilst using the pools! Child-minding can be arranged by Their in-house governess.
As well as breakfast we also provide a mini-bar service where drinks, fresh fruit juices and lassis can be ordered and delivered either to your room, the beach or wherever you may be relaxing within the resort. We also run a light menu from 12noon to 8pm consisting of freshly made snacks and salads.
Yab Yum Resort Accommodation :
Their domes are all constructed of natural, locally available materials comprised of lava rock blocks, palm leaves, mango wood and local mud, clays and sand.
Each dome has a seated reception area, a large master bedroom and living space and a private ensuite bathroom with western-style flushing toilet and hot shower.
In addition to Their standard domes we also have the 'Honey Pod' dome which sleeps 2 and is located on the top of the dune looking out to the sea, and the premium 'Double Suite Pod' which is a double dome with 2 bedrooms, shared bathroom and living area and a terrace overlooking the sea, again on the top of the sand dune.
Their cottages are constructed in the more traditional style by which most of the local Indian houses have been built. Each cottage has its own small veranda, master bedroom and private ensuite bathroom with western-style toilet and hot shower.
All domes and cottages are for two people although we do have two domes and one cottage which have been built specifically for a family of two adults and two children (one double bed & two single beds). If you require a family suite please specify this in your reservation as these tend to get booked up quickly.
All of Their accommodation is furnished with large stone beds and handmade mattresses, cane chairs, mango wood tables and sun loungers. All rooms have clothes-hanging and storage space, fresh cotton linen and feather pillows, soft lighting, reading lamps, cotton floor durries and floor pillows, fans, mosquito nets, agra bhatti incense
