This was such a beautiful surprise for us. We had come to Odayam a few years back and were shocked to see how the place has been spoiled by construction, Then we found Good Karma Beach resort and we knew that there is still something nice in Odayam. The rooms are spacious and clean, the garden is lush and we... More

The Homestay is run by friendly and efficient Daniela who has many good connections to auto-, taxi drivers, shop owners and a great... More

The roof balcony area has real potential but could do with a lick of paint. They have cold water showers but to be honest we were grateful of this as it was roasting. Our room... More

A fantastic little hotel with cosy, comfortable rooms. The owners have paid a lot of attention to the details here and are very friendly and helpful. Unlike some places, it would be easy to spend all day here, with plenty of sunny and shady places to relax in the garden. Stayed in Jan 2012.
