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.

... UK but if they made it this interesting I would do it more often, give more Indians PSV licences that's what I say. We went through the usual paperwork check and then boarded the fast ferry. the hotel had packed us breakfast so with two rucksacks and an Indian takeaway we were off, we had thee days gear in our rucksacks compared with other people having huge cases so we should blend in well. It is a two hour trip but after an hour the captain announced they had a problem with ...
... 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 ...
... on the boat and everyone started talking about the "leopard shark" that I realised what I had been looking at down there! We had been a metre away from a shark!! Leopard sharks are not aggressive though and would never attack a diver unless severely provoked. I still can't believe we were swimming with a shark and I didn't even realise it! Ed also spotted a banded sea snake a metre and a half long on that dive. A very long creature with black and grey segments gliding ...
