We loved the whole experience of Chandoori Sai. It's a very tasteful and comfortable guesthouse where the hospitality is generous and informative. It is a rare opportunity to stay in a tribal area, in comfortable accommodation, with all of the delightful staff being from the adjacent village. We visited markets, were taken on walks in the countryside and provided with excellent food. Views are lovely. Leon arranged a car from Visakhapatnam and we were able to take the train back. Highly recommended.

Don't be put off visiting in monsoon. We've just had three wonderful days here. The rains were never torrential and it seldom rained heavily for more than thirty minutes. None of our plans were affected. An umbrella was sufficient protection. Because of the rain, everything is green and lush. The rice terraces are filled with water. And it's cool enough for a light jumper in the evening. Lack of visitors make it a more personal experience. The only down side is that markets are muddy so factor footwear into the packing. Chandoori Sai is an exquisite place to stay. Tastefully built using local methods and decorated with local pottery, much of it, including floor tiles fired on site. We trusted Leon's guidance and drank the tap water. We experienced no ill effect. The cool tranquility with nice beds may give you the best sleep you'll get in India. You'll barely hear a rickshaw horn. Hot showers are excellent. Leon is a generous host and was very helpful assisting me with some flight changes. His staff are cheerful and a joy to be around. They'll do your laundry. Don't forget to tip them. Excursions by car and foot can be arranged. We liked to do this in the morning and sit around in the afternoon chatting with other guests, reading or napping. Food is a combination of Indian and Western, excellently made. Coffee is mostly locally sourced and roasted on site. Freshly baked bread is usually available if the power is on. We had an early start. Coffee was put in our hands at six am and we were farewelled with a packed lunch. It's relatively expensive for India but you get what you pay for and if you're thinking of coming here this is likely not your first trip. It's a different, slower more gentle India.

With a few friends, for the first time in Odisha. After a long journey, we reached this wonderful place, and stayed there for four days, In the middle of mountains and blue skies, we enjoyed the peaceful guesthouse, with nice rooms, excellent food, friendly staff. Leon shared his philosophy and his home made food with us, he gave us the best of himself, I hope to have the opportunity to go back ! Thank you, Leon.

I came by motorbike. After an 8 hour ride through the forests of Orissa I arrived at an oasis! Food was waiting – can you imagine bruschetti in the middle of nowhere? Leon, the host, was very welcoming. His place has charme and character. The staff is super friendly and open and always laughing. They truly reflect the vibes of the place. They is actually nothing to see here – plenty to experience and explore though. The property is located in India's tribal belt – with all its beauty: the nature, the forests and the people. A different kind of India for sure. I felt at home the moment I walked in ... and I have to admit I didn't know where I was going to. It all came as a very pleasant surprise! I am sure, I am back again!

Bit of a journey to get here but well worth the effort. Leon runs this place to support the local villages and it really is part of unspoilt India (as yet). Had some great local trips and enjoyed Leon's home cooking. If you are looking for a different perspective on India come here. We took a car from Viskhapatnam which worked well.
