Chandoori Sai - luxury in the heart of Orissa

Chandoori Sai Guest House - Orissa - IndiaChandoori Sai is a luxury guest house in Goudaguda, a pottery producing village, a couple of kilometres from Kakiriguma in the Koraput district of Orissa, India.

'going tribal', through its development of the Chandoori Sai guesthouse, has introduced a unique form of luxury eco-tourism to the world that gives you a taste of a time long past and a glimpse of village life not much changed since time before. The concept of 'going tribal' is to let you, the guest, experience and participate in the relaxed rural life in the heart of the tribal district of Orissa, while indirectly bringing much needed attention and opportunities to these indigenous people (Adivasi) and their habitats.

The guesthouse, comprising five double rooms, is styled on the local tribal houses, within a 2 acre garden setting.

"Chandoori" is the Poraja name of the big mango tree at the bottom of the garden. Sai means house. The tree was local medicine for many centuries.

The main village of
Goudaguda creates terracotta pots and utensils for daily use in the surrounding area and these are sold at the local weekly market or "haat". The surrounding area and the host village is a reasonably developed mixed rural area for this part of Orissa, but still very under developed in comparison with much of India. The employees of the operation are from the local villages, as was the workforce used in the construction of this unique tourism venture.
