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

The best select rooms would the ones... More

Wow..what a beautifully maintained government property. We could not get the bamboo cottages but still the deluxe rooms are awesome. Very good staff and good food. Buffet is awesome and ala carte is also reasonable.

Service Needs to be drastically revived. All present staffs needs a face-lift.the location of the property is great. Food quality was good. Rooms need urgent repairs and modifications. Humidity levels makes the floors wet. Good quality linens are required.
