4.6/7
Posted 1 Nov, 2016

had been there from 21/10/16 to 24/10/16. the classic room was comfortable and well maintained. we just had breakfast which was good, but a suggestion for the hotel management that the hygiene was not up to the mark. there were ants inside the sugar served with tea which was replaced by the hotel staff as soon as it was told to them. overall it was a very good experience.

"Awesome location & great food"

5.9/7
Posted 18 Dec, 2015

As part of our vacation to the Andaman, we stayed in Havelock for 2. 5 days and our stay was booked in the Wild Orchid. We weren't happy with our accommodation in Port Blair and hence we were of a similar expectation when we reached Havelock. But to our surprise, we were overwhelmed by The Wild Orchid. The hotel was a beach resort with the beach right at the back of the resort, the rooms were of the cottage type. The cottage was very spacious, great ambience, made entirely of wood. The room was very clean, bathrooms were clean and overall, a comfortable place to stay. There is a catch for the room service. There are no phones in the cottages and hence for room service you need to walk up to the restaurant or the front office. Ordered the food and drink, but that does not actually matter much. The food was just great. Morning breakfast was a mix of English, North and South Indian buffet. They have a wide range of cuisines from North Indian, Chinese to Italian. They have an attached bar and at the time we visited, there was an happy hours offer with 20% discount on drinks but the only thing we missed here is there were no snacks available during this time and that put us off. But not even a tiny bit of regret at all because we enjoyed our stay here pretty much. There is a beach right at the back of the resort and most of the times, it isn't crowded. Lot of foreigners in the hotel and we could see they were enjoying their time too staying here. On the last day, we just hired a two-wheeler on rent available just right in front of the resort and we just explored the island by ourselves. Overall, great place and I pretty much recommend this hotel to everyone.

"Completely luxurious hotel at best location"

6.7/7
Posted 28 Aug, 2015

From ferry at port blair port or phoenix bay jetty we reached Havelock island in 3hrs time at 10am. We were complete surprised by the natural appearance and the greenery of the hotel. Everything in the hotel have a vintage classy look in it. From wooden flooring rooms to restaurant with natural sloping roofs made bamboo, beds were really amazing, made of a different natural structure from wood. Rooms have nice lamps and zero watt bulbs matching with the colour of walls and floors to give perfect calmness and relaxing environment at night. Wash rooms were clean and very well maintained with beautifully furnished walls and floors. Hotel have in house bar(emerald gecko), restaurant(red snappers) and specially the beautiful coffee shop with snacks know as clownish cafe were really memorable indeed to spend time with your loved ones and family. Entire hotel have a peaceful environment with ambience of love in it. Hotel is also perfectly located in walking distance from vijaynagar beach, another beach know as kala pathar beach was about 2km from the hotel. Don't misS the Mount Harriet and elephant beach in this island.

Posted 29 Oct, 2015

This hotel is located just nearby to Vijaynagar beach. Me and my wife stayed there for 2 nights, it was an awesome experience, Hotel is clean, We have not encountered with any problem during our stay, Manager is very helpful, they arranged the return ferry ticket for me. Staff is courteous. Restaurant service is amazing, Must try Fish tikka at the restaurant. If you are thinking that electricity would be a problem then I tell you that no. Weather is very pleasant in Havelock.

"Great Destination - Awesome experience"

6.3/7
Posted 5 Apr, 2016

The trip to Andamans is incomplete without you visiting Havelock Island. Few of the best beaches of Asia. Serene, Transparent, Clean & Clear, Less populated beaches offers you the best of time, money and of course pleasure and joy. The nature is at its best, provides you the environment beyond expectations. Take a two - wheeler and move around the beaches at your convenience. Think of watching Sunrise at Kala Patther beach and I bet it will be a great experience to go by two- wheeler at about 4:00 am. It will be good to go in a group for this expedition. Many activities awaits you including unforgettable Scuba dives. A bargain is possible for Scuba dives. The Wild Orchid - one of the best property to stay, just a few steps away from Vijay Nagar beach. The style cottage - a well decorated, well lit and a spacious rooms are the best part of the stay. The vegetarians must make sure to carry the required food or be ready to eat the available rice etc. The staff is courteous and extends the required help. Worth a stay.

"Good food and lovely ambience"

6.1/7
Posted 30 Dec, 2015

We were here for 2 nights. Beautifully located, close to a deserted beach. Rooms are clean, there is a seating area outside your room, where you can just sit and relax, stretch your legs and calm yourself. At first look you might just think in what shabby place have you entered, but once you get comfortable it's just lovely. Food in the hotel restaurant is just too good. However, if you famished start early, as it does take time to serve yummy food. TIP: Incase you scared of lizards, tell the front office to check the rooms in advance. All in all a nice place to stay.
