    Godwit Eco Cottage in Mangalajodi- The Birds Paradise in Odisha
    on Jan 8, 2020
    On 26th Nov,19 , I visited at the village. Mangalajodi Eco Tourism now engaged in patronizing for conservation of ecosystem in wet land & protection of birds. It is an amazing experience watching birds both domestic & migratory during the season from October to January , sitting on a boat for 3 hours. But you have to spend a night there. Staying option is very limited, no hotel, it is a village. There are two standard Eco homes – Godwit Eco Cottage & Mangalajodi Eco Tourism. There is two home stay of one Madhu Behera & Rajankanta Mishra. Sri Sri Mahavir Pakshi Surakshya Samity , founded by Wild Odisha in 2000 & recognised by Chilka Development Authority has committed for birds Protection. I stayed in Godwit Eco Cottage ( GEC) , in room no E1, located in the village Mangalajodi, 3km away from the jetty. Mr Rabindra Nayak, the manager of the property, looked after the guests’ staying, food ,boat trip etc. A road from the NH-5 enters in the village & stretches till the Jetty; on the road the cottage is situated. I booked a DB room; Non AC. GEC is a unit of Suntemple Tourism India Pvt. Ltd. They have a website in the name odishaecotourism .The standard of this unit is the same as of Mangalajodi Eco Tourism providing good facility. I booked the room by money transfer in their Bank A/C, after a discussion with Mr.Nayak. The room is provided with the modern facilities like sofa, wardrobe, hot water, TV, & other essentials. They run a restaurant, Jacana, a unit of the Suntemple, provides food on order as per choice. Price is high. Their hospitality is satisfactory. The cottage is situated in road side jungle, with the rustic environment. The unit is having AC rooms, Tent also. If you want to stay , you have to book in advance. Contact No of Mr. Rabindra Nayak- 918455075534/ 8455075584.To us it was a beautiful experience.... More

    Hospitality good but pathetic food. Rooms are moderately clean but lack of maintenance is clearly visible. You will have to hire auto to visit Mangalajodi. As a birding spot it is a must visit. Winter is best season. ... More

    Basic but good option with nice staff and delicious food
    on Mar 29, 2018
    The one and only reason for coming to Manglajodi is to witness the amazing spectacle of congregation of migratory and resident birds. The accommodation options are limited. Basically this or the eco cottage. Odisha tourism is in the middle of building a new complex, perhaps will be completed for next season. This is a no-frills accommodation very well located for the wetlands. I was very impressed with the manager Mr Rabindra Nayak who was very prompt in replying to my mails and also prompt in refunding part of my booking. One can bypass the travel agent and book directly with him. His assistant Pravas was also a nice person. In fact all the staff I met were courteous and warm and served the demanding Bengali tourists without moaning. The room is very basic. Has a fan. There was a geyser for hot water, but do not expect a huge amount of heated water as it was fairly small. I didn't bother about the shower, used bucket and mug. The cleaning could have been better as there were dirt easily visible in many places and the pillow clearly had some stains, but I have stayed in worse places. The food was very nice. I loved the fish, not too spicy. Crisp Karela fries were delicious. Simple but very enjoyable and I was not here for food. The cottages are close by but I didn't get too disturbed by others. The boarders were all nature enthusiasts. The trains passing by did not disturb me at all. My driver slept in the dormitory. Request Sanatan Behra as your guide. Extremely helpful, great knowledge and excellent sense of photography. A gem of a man. The drive to the wetlands is about ten minutes unless you get stuck in the train crossing. Mangalajodi is a truly mesmeriing experience and this is a perfectly acceptable accommodation, just come prepared.... More

    Exploring Mangalajodi
    on Feb 6, 2018
    I had been to Manglajodi last January(2018) with my family, it was an amazing experience there as we saw a large varieties of birds some resident and some migratory as Rudy Shelduck, Pintail, Gargony etc. The boating experience was for two hours which will remain as memorable to us. After the trip we went to have our lunch at Godwit Eco Cottage where the staff attended us with a sumptuous lunch with a special dish of delicious prawn curry. It was past 3 pm and we were doubtful whether lunch would be available but the Cottage staff relieved us by serving the lunch within half an hour and the quality of the food was satisfactory. We didn't stay there but the gesture of the Cottage was very much likable to us and the lunch bill wasn't too costly. After lunch we went back to Puri from where we came to Manglajodi.... More

    The cottages at this property provide very, very basic accommodations. But they are there because it's only a short drive to Chilika lake and the migratory birds everyone comes to see. Meals are also basic but the night I was there excellent fresh fish was served. The lake and birds are not to be missed.... More
