Lovely Stay. You would love it if you think of hearing to Birds Chirping and a lovely view of the city from the top. Pretty far from the crowded area and the main city, which is almost 1 km downway. Food is good too. No complaints with Room Service in fact they help you get a parcel sandwich with anything... More

Decent place, on a small hill not very far from city center. Full value for money, with great bay view. Food not that great though. Getting booking specially the bamboo cottage is tough. One has to book well in advance.

Other wise its very quite and relaxing, view from the balcony is also very nice. Rooms are not like star rated hotels but was... More

The view of the portblair and the vast ocean.. The ships coming and going was very beautiful.. Sitting in the balcony you will feel time flies. The food... More

The resort is very isolated from the main city, if you have prebooked packages with cab then not a problem, else travelling to city center is a problem. Coming to the rooms they are very spacious and have wonderful views of the jetty. Though they are value for money but lacks little bit cleanliness. Food was good and the restaurant... More

I booked at Bamboo Cottage at Megapode attracted by reviews of excellent views. Unfortunately, there are only two cottages which offer excellent views. The other four open into a crowded jetty [dirty and it stinks] The two good ones are reserved for Indian Government officials. There are two Nicobari cottages which offer excellent views and are in decent shape [Bamboo... More

First thing first: The Resort (hotel) was initially named ‘Megapode Nest’ and is re-named as ‘Megapode Resorts’. Megapode is a bird with large feet, and native to Andaman. The resort is run by State owned Corporation ANIIDCO and an acknowledgment to the said bird by the State. Secondly, my honest confession: After having planned our trip for the month of... More
