Default Travel to Udupi - please suggest a few good places to Stay

Folks,

This came up on short notice. We have to go to Shrungeri on a religious trip and since Udupi is closeby, we decided we will spend couple of nights in udupi.

Can you please suggest us few good places(Hotels/resorts) to stay?. No booking done as of now and we will be in Udupi on 26 and 27th of Dec.

Also, in Wiki travel, came across "Hoode-Kemmannu house boats". Heard of it for the first time in my life. Can you tell us how to book this as well as what the experience is like?

Greatly appreciate your help as always

Thanks
Shankar

AFAAICT, there are plenty of places in and around Udupi where you can stay. Kediyoor is the top end. And the TMA pai foundation runs one in nearby Manipal (hardly 3 KM). This one is for training too.

Like BackSeatDRiver, I also recommend Hotel Kediyoor in Udupi. Good, cheap rooms, excellent veg restaurant and ample car parking.

If you are looking for something more up-market, Manipal has the Hotel Valley View, and Paradise Island is a swanky beach resort on Malpe Beach which is 5 kms from Udupi.

The best is Valley View in Manipal. Single room 2500+taxes and double room 3000+taxes. Then you have Udupi residency, Kediyoor, Sharada International in Udupi, they cost half as much as Valley view.

Paradise Island has gone to dogs since last year, still they charge higher than valley view.

Thanks for all your replies..

One more question:

From google maps, I see there is a route from Shringeri -> Karkala-> Udupi which looks shortest.

I have also heard another route Shrungeri ->Koppa->Agumbe->Hebri->Udupi. Looks longer but may be more scenic?..

What are the road conditions in both these?.

Thanks
Shankar

Well prabhuav Bhatkal takes around 3 hrs from udupi. Its better to stay somewhere near murdeshwar which is really close comparitively as in about half an hour journey.

Bhatkala is 90kms from udupi, Hardly 2 hrs drive from Udupi
Bhatkala hardly has any good hotels to stay, Don't know as how good Koal Paradise is now there.

Yeah I agree with you on this. Nothing great about this beach resort at Malpe. Only the location is good here

the second mentioned route is definetely not a correct route. why does any1 have to reach Koppa is he/she wants to go to Agumbe from sringeri?
The best /shortest route to reach udupi is
Sringeri-Agumbe-Hebri-Hiriyadka-Parkala-Udupi

It's around 85Kms, you could stay at Sharon in Kundapura. BTW, it is Bhatkal.

For the other question, Sringeri-Agumbe-Hebri-Hiriyadka-Manipal-udupi is the shortest path. There is Sringeri-Karkala-Manipal-Udupi if you prefer Kudremukh ghat, that is 10-15kms longer.

Found out that the place we are going to is indeed bantakal and it a side road once you get to Katpady. Must be a tiny place


BTW how much time should I budget from Bangalore to Udupi?
