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...

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.
