Neil Island. What to say. We were going to go to Long Island, north of Havelock but changed our minds on a tip from the wonderful Mr Hough (ta, Pete!). I’m sure Long …
... spiders and a lizard the width of my arm. It felt like these guys were the owners of the hut and we were just sharing the floor space! We soon learnt that tourists are restricted from visiting some of the Andaman islands, as tribes still remain there. Although the government and local people have attempted to make communication with the tribes, they only respond by spearing the beaches, wishing to remain completely cut off from the rest of the world. Knowing this made our ...
... but day 2 was simply incredible. It started well with dolphins and flying fish on the way to the dive site. And with a simply beautiful deep dive with 30m + visibility on an Ocean pinnacle my day was already made but the night dive on a wreck sealed off a truely amazing day. I was very apprehensive about how I would feel being underwater at night, with just a small maglight to see with, ...
... guy, Radolslav talked in Slovak for a bit. Then out from their cabina came Alzbeta, Radoslav's wife. Turns out they're both doctors, practicing in Germany.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
A lovely resort with a fantastic sea view. One only needs to step out of the room to reach the beautiful beach. It is about 15 mins walk along the beach to the Sunset Point. Cycles for hire are available near the resort. The food is good. There are buffet meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The staff is friendly and helpful.
However, it is a bit on the expensive side. Especially since the rooms are very tiny and there's hardly any space to move. I personally feel that Rs. 3000/night for such a (non-ac) room is not worth it. I will give it 3 stars because it is not value for money.
