I went to Havelock Island for a 4-days vacation and stayed at this resort. The best part about this hotel is the location. about 50 yards from the rooms... there lies one of the cleanest & longest beaches. that is simply the best aspect of this resort.
the other good part is the size of the rooms/ cottages. the rooms are very very big, with sufficient space for a separate dining area along with a double bed. i stayed in deluxe rooms. standard rooms, although a bit smaller were still decent enough.
the third good aspect of this property is its price. when i went there, i cost me ~Rs. 1500 per night... seems dirt cheap for this location.
however, there are some major negatives of this resort, most of them exist as it is a govt property -
it starts with the booking itself. u HAVE to have an advance booking before coming here. the booking can be done ONLY through physical payment at Port Blair. i managed it via a contact in port blair
the staff is virtually absent. forget bell boys, even daily cleaning of the rooms was absent. despite indifferent staff, the lawns of the resort are quite well manicured!
resort restaurant serves food for very very specific & limited hrs during the day. for food, we went to a nearby restaurant in the hotel Wild Orchid... the food and the staff there were simply awesome!
closing statement - will i go there again? YES... for its brilliant location
they have three categories of rooms. go for the middle category as cheapest rooms are located far aw...
