Liked the cottages here. We got one right on the beach so, could enjoy the blue waters and beach very much. Except one or two dishes food was good generally. Clean and well-maintained rooms, public areas although a bit expensive. There are many small eateries also around where one can try local food. One favourite was the Andaman Bubbles or Fat Martin where you can get nice dosas and a not to miss desert. A must visit place.

I landed up in this this resort in mid Jan, 2015, thorough a travel portal that I booked online and stayed at the sister hotels, as well as part of the holiday package.

It's difficult to review a resort which is geographically so isolated considering all the logistical and other challenges that go into running a place like this. So one needs to keep an open mind and this review maybe read with a disclosure subject to terms and conditions¯.

Any holiday is an experiential matter, and needless to say, the place of stay is a huge determining factor for this experience. The location is undoubtedly the crowning glory of this resort. It has a sliver of the famed sandy beaches of Havelock and unspoilt views of the gorgeous Andaman Sea. This is as close as one can get to enjoy the commune with nature.

Coming to the more practical and functional aspects- the resort is away from the main town so access to the commercial hub is difficult as there are no transport facilities. If you are lucky you may find an auto, else you have to hire a scooty. The rooms are well-furnished and comfortable with a log cabin kinda feel, but on the downside they seriously need sound proofing. Also a stocked up minibar wouldn’t be a kill considering it is dreadfully hot and humid when it's bright and sunny.
The place is cut off cell phone network connectivity wise. Be prepared as even the landlines can be down in case there's heavy downpour. So depending on your temperament you could actually get a panic attack or enjoy your new found freedom from digital and the urbane chaos.

The dinner options (though a little on the spicier side) were fairly good but breakfast could have been definitely better.

A few pointers though-
It's important to keep some cash handy for emergencies. The place doesn't accept cards and of the two ATMs in the islands, the AXIS bank remains non-functional and the SBI has perennially serpentine queues.

Also for non-honey mooning couples it's advisable to carry your non digital entertainment options like a book or a game of scrabble/ chess; cause if the weather Gods play truant and you are holed up inside the resort instead of going scuba diving; then you are gonna be bored to death! And trust me when it pours its absolutely torrential rain!

I realized during the stay that the tariff is pretty steep for the budget traveller. If you are booking a package through a travel portal it works out more reasonable. The friendly staff, right from the resort manager -Mr. Pawan, guest relations Ms. Faizleen, down to the night guard, were all very courteous and helpful. So that earns them brownie points.

The breathtaking view of the Andaman seascape, shades of turquoise and teal. sandy beaches, tiny white crabs crawling over the feet, little fisherman's boats bobbing up and down and the distant lighthouse at night more than make up for the shortcomings of the resort.

The hotel is a good option to stay. The staff is good and the hospitality is awesome. The food is good as well and the location and ambience is also very good. The welcome is also good from the staff and facilities are also very good. The reception is very helpful if you need any assistance or help any time off the day.

This hotel is very good. It's outside location is very good. Room is well-decorated. I suggest that if the visitors can aware what they will eat the whole day, then they will prepare for that. I think the hotel room needs to be painted.

I had a pleasant time staying in the hotel. One bad thing about it was that I had to make a phone call for any service that I wanted. Secondly there was no hot water facility for which they were providing half bucket hot water in morning only. Otherwise, it was a nice place and I enjoyed my stay there.

Everything was good except for the front office who could have handled certain issues in a much better way. Firstly, AC was not working and we had to complain three or four times before it was sorted out. Secondly, we had arranged the package with Yatra. Our cruise was scheduled for 4:30 PM. But our stay was only till 8:30 AM. So we requested the in-charge for some more time. He said that extra charges will be applicable. We were okay with it but it came as a shock when we went for checking out that the extra charges were 8000 INR (for just a few hours). This could have been intimated to us earlier so that we would be better prepared or could have rescheduled.

Entire experience soured with that one pretty thing.

The overall experience was excellent. It was a sightseeing trip. The hotel was conveniently located. The surroundings of the hotel were excellent. The interior was good. The paintings, furniture's, indoor and outdoor decoration were good. The staff were very quick to attend all the requests. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained. The pillows, bed sheets and blankets were in clean condition. The amenities like AC, TV and geyser were in working condition. The bathroom was very good. I took food from the hotel and it was good. The food was reasonably priced. They provide both veg and non-veg. There was no problem at check-in and check-out. I felt happy in the stay. I don't have any suggestion for the development of the hotel.
