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...

We stayed here just for valentines night which was planned sudden as the other resort where I booked for next 3 days was not available for 14th Eve. To my surprise the rooms were very much comfortable over this budget and just beside German bakery. They also have a library in the open beneath the banyan tree which made my...

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. The only drawback was communication with the staffs. None could speak English. But they are a helpful lot , that is if you...

A trip to Goa with some friends brought the Banyan Soul to our attention. Having seen some of the good reviews, we decided to give it a go and it was a decision we were glad to have made. Nestled in a cozy spot, up the street from German Bakery and about a 5 min walk from the flea market,...

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.

My stay at the Banyan Soul was extremely pleasant. The owner Sumit Yardi is a super nice guy and you can see that he has attention to detail. The place is rustic but modern, extremely comfortable and much better than the grand majority of places in Goa. Plus its close to a lot of good restaurantes and beaches!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Tucked peacefully in the backlanes yet at a walking distance from the buzz of Anjuna beach, The Banyan Soul is a gem for those who can blend into it's simplicity and not oppose or resist it. Big enough beds in rooms not so small as to induce claustrophobia and fitted with all basic amenities one needs to start and end...

The banyan soul is paradoxically both close to the popular Anjuna beach and quietly secluded. The hotel is beautiful with an outdoor library under a huge banyan tree which is lit by delightful lamps at night. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. The interior of the rooms echo what I think is...
