Hammocks, real trees that are part of the decor of an inside bathroom, and a private and quiet beach. Ananda Beach Home was a serene and unexpected oasis at a very reasonable price. The strength of this hideaway is the quirky but casual comfort of the rooms, and the accommodating staff. My travel companions, a group of American students traveling abroad and on spring break were absolutely delighted with our room. Where else could you find a comfortable bed AND an actual tree growing in an enclosed bathroom? The staff was so friendly and helpful . At one point even letting us cook in their kitchen. The end result was that a mere five hours after our arrival we had put together a beach party for 20 that included an impromptu band. Swimming in the private beach at night provided the unexpected surprise of bio-luminescence in the water. We had planned to continue traveling but lulled by the simple comforts of hammocks, friendly staff and a sandy quiet beach, we ended up staying an extra three days. The reasonable price made this feasible and not a budget buster. Truly one of my favorite places in India.
