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.

The hotel was very conveniently located. I didn't face any problem to reach the hotel. The hotel was located in the city. Shopping mall or any market area was not near as it was surrounded by all the resorts. Scooty was provided on rent and we could roam around and get whatever we want. Major plus point of the hotel was a beach nearby, it was actually a private beach. The staff of the hotel were very good and helpful. The services were a bit slow. The room provided was spacious, very neat and clean. The room was well equipped with all the amenities such as TV, geyser etc. Which were functioning properly. Generators were provided whenever there was power cut.

I stayed in Wild Orchid Resorts, Havelock Island for two days. It's located in real Wild Orchid surroundings and a lot of thought and plan was applied to make the property look like in Wild Forest and rooms to appear nomadic looks. Room maintenance is very good. A beautiful beach is just behind the resorts ( 5 minutes walk). This beach is far far better than Kaala Pattar Beach. I found some Jelly fish in the clear beach waters.

The hotel staff are very courteous and cooperative. Food tastes excellent, however it is bit costly.

Pros:

1. Real Orchids are grown around the resorts and nomadic rooms are enhancing the ambiance.

2, Tasty food. Good restaurant and bar.

3. Quick and positive hotel staff

4. Traditional nomadic look inside and outside rooms.

Cons:

1. No WIFI, no intercom, no satellite signals (No DTH). Only Cable connection with poor signals. No LED TV (They said in some rooms LED TVs are available) and no card payment.

In-spite of all the above cons, this is Budget and beautiful Resort for comfortable stay. Newly wedded couple can worth try for a stay.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 days in the month of May 2015 and the experience was thoroughly satisfying. Large and clean rooms located 100 meters from Vijay nagar beach. You could walk any time to the beach. ( A beach where the tides are very low compared to Radhanagar beach. Good for walking and relaxing. Very good food and complimentary breakfast too had variety and taste. I asked for a beach dinner on my anniversary, the setup for which was not the same as they show you in the photos. A little disappointment though. Food, though very tasty, was a little costly. If you wish to save on food, you can choose to eat in road side restaurants. We tried in 2 different restaurants and all severed nice foods.

Travel Date: April'15

While the hotel room had all the facilities like AC, TV and hot water, it maintained an rustic and ancestral look, just what we were looking for. The huge wooden bed, the hammock outside in the cute porch of our room, and the completely wooden structure of the rooms, the reception and the restaurant transported us to a different world altogether.

Special Highlight, the lots of talking lizards which are a salient feature of the entire Havelock Island. There was also a tiny library with decent collection. Food was average, but we always hung out at Fat Martin's nearby. The proximity to the beach made it heaven for us. Must try, the seaside Yoga.

After a good heartening sea journey you reach the virgin land of Havelock. It is altogether a different experience of travelling to other places. Natural beauty, flora and fauna, scuba one can explore. Just located at the beach gives a very satisfying experience.

One can hire the motor bike to tour around Havelock. This place is thinly populated and food there is really awesome.

One can hear the soothing water wave music from hotel room. Tariffs and services are excellent.

This hotel was simply awesome. The rooms were nice. The cottages felt completely different feel as compared to the other hotels. The food here was exotic and gave us a nice experience. The only negative was that there were no phone line in the rooms. The hotel was close to the beach which was a big plus.

Overall, my stay there was fine. Everything was fine in Havelock. Hotel's location was very good. Pick-up and drop facility was provided by them. I liked the room there because that was totally different. It was well-decorated. I liked the stay at Havelock. Food was nice. Quality, quantity, and variety wise, it was good. We did not use any activity over there because most of the time we were on the beach. Services in Havelock were very good. Booking and front office people were also very good. It was value for money. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.

This was not an advisable place for the guest as the hotel was not maintained well. The bugs had beaten us badly. The hotel did not have basic facility. The bugs were in the restaurant. The hotel had very less staffs to serve. They didn?t have first aid too. The rooms were spacious, neat and well maintained. I had no view through the room. The hotel?s appearance was good. Few staffs were very friendly and cooperative but some were not professional at all. The food was good. They had many webs formed on the roof. The place was not hygiene. The hotel had organised DJ music. The hotel stay was value for money but I would not like to recommend this hotel to others.
