The staff, all from surrounding villages, are efficient and very friendly while proprietor Mahoney regales guests with great stories about local life. The lodge lies in a sprawling and well-kept garden, the perfect spot for an afternoon snooze or read. There are no TVs or other modern amenities other than intermittent Wi-Fi.

Chandoori Sai is connected to Grass Routes Journeys, an Odisha based, high-end travel company, run by an Indian-Australian couple, which organizes immersive visits to tribal communities and crumbling palaces inhabited by descendants of India’s erstwhile royalty, using the lodge as a base. Their expert guides and drivers are the best intermediaries to help visitors fully appreciate Odisha’s cultural gems.
