I first stayed with Leon - the Australian owner - at Chandoori Sai in October/November 2016 & returned there, June/July 2017, for a couple of weeks during monsoon season. Monsoon is the best time as I have never seen country so lushly verdant with different shades of green.
Chandoori Sai itself is opulent, so clean, comfortable, with equally memorable cooking ranging from homemade oven cooked pizzas, roast chicken, a variety of pasta, the best homemade apple pie this far East (or West, depending where you travel from) &, yes, even Indian dishes. Home made bread & the best peanut butter are also freshly made, as are the ginger biscuits & lemonade. The local village ladies, dressed impeccably, work hard maintaining Chandoori Sai's high standards of cleanliness & comfort - all at a most reasonable price.
I can hardly wait to go back again for a third time.. & beyond
