I cannot even stress enough how much I love Jamboree Creek Yoga (in Ashwem, Goa). It’s just near Mandrem and Morjim area so you’re close to all the cool bars, clubs, and great restaurants like Prana Cafe, La Plage, Delicieux, and Burger Factory. This hotel is in a quiet area, is eco-friendly, and … wait for it.. has access to a secret beach!

It just so happens it’s the same secret beach that the resort, Elsewhere uses, where Brad and Angelina Jolie stayed with their kids.

General Goa Travel Tips

Jamboree has a cute little mud hut as well as their cabins!

There are both A/C and non A/C rooms, but these aren’t your typical beach huts. They are made from proper wood and look like little cabins. The non A/C are about 3,000 but rates go up in season like they do all over Goa. Some rooms have a tv and one is a suite which has a mini fridge, cabinets, wardrobe and is much larger. The place is new (this is the second season) so rooms are clean and perfect.

Rooms have a full-size bed with big fluffy pillows and a soft mattress. Like I said, this isn’t a beach shack type place, and although prices are low it’s more like a boutique resort. It’s also not directly on the beach which is how it stays so private.

The bathrooms are what you hear all the guests raving about. The rooms have an attached bath with walls that look like traditional mud tile (not sure if they are) and are all painted a different bright color. Each one has an open-air rain shower! Ahh, maybe my favorite part about the room.


I loved laying out there in the hammocks drinking fresh hibiscus juice she learned to make in Auroville. There is a small farm where they grow their own veggies as well. After the beach, it’s great to rinse off at the open air shower by the pool.

The food at Jamboree Creek

Jamboree has a lovely chef who used to work at one of the top restaurants in Goa! She’s making creative healthy food at Jamboree and I like to just pop in for breakfast or lunch in their jungle vibe cafe and chill out.

Private path to the beach

As I mentioned, Jamboree Creek has a path that only Elsewhere and they can use for the beach. It’s pretty great! It’s about a 5-minute walk and someone can escort you there.

Perfect garden space & yoga shala

The grounds at Jamboree Creek have the most amazing gardening. It made me feel so relaxed. It’s the perfect place to stay and do yoga in the mornings, but still, a good base to go out and party. The gardens are SO full of flowers and plants, you will love it.

They do so many retreats here and have yoga and capoeira and so much more on hand most mornings. You can drop in for classes and learn something new with some of the top teachers who come here during the season.
