We had six lovely days doing nothing at OGs Beach Bungalow. These are just comfortable rooms right on the beach with an open dining room serving good home style cooking. Nothing else. No television, no phone, no internet access (as far as we know), without going into the local village. We loved it.
Our room in the modern block was spacious and though very simple, we liked it very much. The bed was big and comfortable, the air conditioning mostly effective (blips in the power supply happen occasionally) with a good shower room and plenty of hot water. It even had good lighting for reading, something often missing from other places.
Without exception the staff are charming and helpful (particular thanks to Anand, Vineedt, Sheba, Daisy and Beena who we got to know best), happy to do to do anything they could to see that we enjoyed ourselves. We felt sad to leave.
It is a local fishermens' area which both adds to the charm and dirties the beach. But the staff kept the area in front of our rooms very clean. The water is a bit rough along this coast but we loved riding the waves in.
If you like fancy resorts this is not the place for you. But if you just want to do nothing in reasonable comfort in a great beach setting with nice people, this is a great place to be. You can always take a tuk tuk to the nearby up scale resorts that are just a few miles away if you crave a blow out dinner and some will let you use their facilities for the day for a fee.
