Was initially recommended this place by some friends who I met travelling. The place itself is quite basic and could do with a bit of love but the guys running the place are so welcoming and hospitable it outweighs the drawbacks. The price was reasonable and it has a nice bamboo hut and chillout common area available to relax or... More

I can truly say that our stay at Mandala was one of the highlights of our trip in India. The boys made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived and went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed. The rooms may be basic but Mandala makes up for it with it's character and friendly... More

We stayed here about a month ago. We paid 850 for the shack room at the front. We left this review until we stayed in a few similar places for similar prices. Now that we have that experience we can review Mandala House with a clear mind. When we arrived we asked for a sheet and some towels. We were... More

We were meant to stay here for one night, but messed up our train bookings and therefore had to leave the same day. Despite having likely lost a booking for the night, we were only charged a minimal amount for the room (as we had used it to shower and sleep during the day), and we were able to hang... More

I stayed at Mandala for 5 nights and I can highly recommend it. They gave us a box of water on arrival, very relaxed atmosphere, you will have a great time! It is right on the beach, rooms are basic but good. Wifi works very well but most importantly the owners Babu and Mohammed are fantastic! at this time of... More

The team here are really good and help out but this was the most expensive place we stayed in India and it was probably the worst value. If you want to go and just bum around this might be for you. i think as it is mentioned in LP the price is high. We decided to move out after 1... More

Babu and his group of friends make you feel most welcome. Babu cooks up basic breakfasts and charcoal nighttime grills. The "over-the-sand" cottage is the best place (we had booked that and one other "regular" room). You have a private balcony overlooking the sea and a bathtub from which you can look out to the beach (but not the other-way-round... More
