“The most friendly place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

Our family (two adults and three children, age 4, 5 and 8) were supposed to stay at Sea Splendour for one week in november 2011, it turned out to bee almost four! Haksar, the owner, worked from early morning to late night to fulfill every wish we had and made us feel really comfortable, safe and at home. Haksar has his own riksha and drove us around, he helped us arrange nice excursions suitable for children, he posted our postcards, arranged laundryservice, helped us fix indian sim-cards and cooked the most wonderful dinners in his new-built restaurant. From the restaurant you have a nice sea view and can listen to the fishermen pulling their nets while you have your breakfast. ( You will also hear the mosque nearby but probably get used to it if you stay for a while...) Sea splendour is a basic place and you should not expect any luxury. The rooms are simple but quite big and the atmosphere is peaceful and totally different from the hectic life at the Cliff were most tourists stay. For us, who had two of our children in the Swedish school on the same small road, it was also very convenient that they easily could walk to school. We can really recommend this place and its very friendly owner Haksar to anyone who is looking for a simple but lovely stay in the peaceful village Odayam.

We (a family of four) stayed at the Sea Splendour for about 3 months, in the beginning of 2011. It was a wonderful stay! The rooms are basic, but nice, surrounded by a beautiful garden near the ocean. Haksar is the most perfect landlord, preparing fine meals in the small garden kitchen and helping you out with all the things you need (rikshaw trips, laundry, organizing excursions and much more). At Haksar´s place you will definitely feel at home! We are so happy we found this gem, in the peaceful village Odayam Beach.

We (two adults and two kids) went to Varkala in the end of January 2011 and stayed in Odayam for 9 weeks. Seven weeks we stayed at Sea Splendour and had a great family experience. Haksar that runs and owns this hotel is very friendly and gives great service. He could ask us if we would like to dine in and if so, he would arrange a great dinner of either chicken, meat, fish and vegtables. He was a great chef with his wife as a team.

I would really like to recommend this small and friendly hotel!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2010

Just got back from Kerala and staying at Sea Splendour was one of the highlights of my time there. It's basic and cheaper than a lot of the other places nearby- most of which are in the Ayurveda-style retreat bracket. I think we paid about 500 rupees for a double room. The owner picked us up from the station and was so accommodating and lovely; giving us the best rooms (top floor, ask for as they have the best view) cooking breakfast and dinner to order. He has a rickshaw and drove us around at no extra cost. But he was only really able to this as we were the only guests- I'm guessing that as soon as the place fills up it might get a bit tricky for him to be so obliging but while we were the only ones there he went out of his way for us.
Be warned- it IS basic- no TV or wifi, and very simply decorated, but the view of the fishermen pulling in the catch in the morning, the quiet, the peace, the verandah where you can read your book, the genuine warmth and hospitality- for such little money, you couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended for the budget traveller needing an escape from the madness of India.
