"As a responsible and eco friendly traveler, this is the place to be in while chilling out and soaking in a bit of off beat Goa. No tips, no recommendations! The hosts at this lovely nest have got most things figured out in the best way possible, so just sit back, take it easy and breathe in a bit Goa! The rooms are aesthetically done up taking care of the comforts of day to day life, unless one belonged to the royalty with its hang ups. The open air toilets attached to most of the rooms add to charm and beauty of the place. Members of the staff are well trained and in any case very friendly, efficient and really genuine. Would love to mention a few names here, but that wouldn't be fair to the one whose names I do not remember. Last but not the least, the stupid brain behind all this "jamboree" is a lovely young lady who has her heart and soul in the right place viz. Jamboree Creek. More power to Her"

"My husband and I spent a weekend (2 nights) at Jamboree. Jamboree Creek is a beautiful resort located in Ashvem. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable and beautiful place to stay in. We were greeted and welcomed with warmth and right from the time we entered the place till we left, the staff ensured that all our needs were being met. The place is being run by a very warm and generous lady named Priyanka. She along with Vishnu ensured that we had a carefree and relaxed time in Goa. The resort has several lovely huts, with open-to-the-sky bathrooms, that are maintained immaculately. Being an eco-resort, the simplicity and integration with nature is to be found everywhere, right from the wonderful collection of herbal teas, to wholesome meals with produce from their own organic garden, to the thatched-roof huts. The resort is located next to a beautiful creek, and while not situated directly on a beach has a private access via a bridge to one of the most pristine white-sanded and gentle beaches of Ashvem. The whole experience was nothing short of amazing and would strongly recommend Jamboree if you are planning a trip to Goa"

"We had a lovely stay here in beautiful surroundings with what will in time be the most beautiful garden and the kitchen garden provides great produce for the kitchen which you can see the staff literally cut fresh as you order. The room was really comfortable, clean and well furnished with a wow outdoor bathroom! The pool area is really lovely and hammocks to chill out. The food is all lovely and freshly prepared and with a few different choices. Priyanka and her staff are all so attentive and caring for their guests and want everyone to have a good stay. They really put themselves out when my husband was ill and ensured we had everything we needed for him to get better. The whole place is a really relaxing and beautiful place to be. It's not so easy to walk out in the evening to other places to eat though. Also we aren't into the whole yoga etc vibe and found that the website doesn't really give the impression of just how "yoga retreat" that the place is so if you aren't into that then this might not be the place for you. It was just right for us though for a place to relax even if we would rather a bottle of wine than a detox drink! Thanks Priyanka and everyone for a lovely stay."

"I cannot even stress enough how much I love Jamboree Creek Goa (in Ashwem, Goa). Its just near Mandrem and Morjim area so youre close to all the cool bars, clubs, and great restaurants like Sublime, La Plage, Delicieux, and Cafe Nu. This hotel is in a quiet area, is eco-friendly, and wait for it: has access to a secret beach!"

"The place is perfect! It has lovely rooms, a swimming pool, a badminton court, a natures basket (herb garden), organic vegetable garden, an open air Yogashala (yoga space), an open air restaurant, a space to chill by the river and lots of open space. Its the perfect nature resort and also offers some capoeira classes; ask the owner Priyanka about that."

"I visited Jamboree with a couple of girlfriends and stayed there for 4 days. Having been to Goa a couple of times before, this time we were looking for a quiet and green space. The place is away from the hustle and noise of Baga. The beach is a short walk away and not crowded."
