My family and I stayed at Good Karma for 3 days. Daniella made us feel very welcome and was always ready to help if needed. A short walk and we were on Odayam beach - a fantastic beach for swimming, sunbathing and grabbing a meal at the Palm Tree Heritage restaurant on the sand. A short walk (~10 minutes) and... More

Me and my mum stayed here for what should have been one night but what soon became 5 nights. This place has been our best experience on our trip to Kerala because of Danielas kindness and amazing breakfast, a very comfortable room, a good view and close to the beach and the cliffs. We send our deeply recommends for this... More

The place is wonderful, it's different than in the picture, but in a good way. It's a little far from everything, so you have to walk a lot along the cliffs the it worth the view that you have. Or you can ask for a scooter, they will help you to rent one.

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

I love this place. The rooms are colorfull designed and clean and quiet. From the balcony you have a beautifull view into the garden with coconut trees, banana trees...and to the sea. You can enjoy your balcony - nobody can see you there from outside so that you can feel free there. The toproof is a good place for Yoga.... More
